SELLER INSIGHT Set back from the road in a quiet, semi-rural location not far from the thriving town of Bovey Tracey is The Downs, an attractive property that was beautifully designed and built for the current owner in 1977. It as a spacious home that also has the benefit of a large indoor swimming pool, which was constructed in 1995. The property is now empty having been rented for the last couple of years and is being sold with no onward chain.

Each of the main living areas is generously proportioned and double doors between the kitchen, dining room and the living room not only create an easy flow, but when pushed back also give the house an almost open plan feel. It is the ideal layout for busy family life and is also hugely conducive to entertaining. The pool room and most of the principle living areas also have French doors that lead out into the pretty garden beyond. They not only serve to flood the house with natural light, but also create a wonderful connection to the outside space.

The garden, which was beautifully landscaped wraps right around the house and is surrounded by a mature boundary which give the entire space a wonderful feeling of peaceful seclusion. To the front there is a sizeable driveway edged with a lawn and beds of flowers, and to the back there is a large patio, with the rest of the garden being mainly laid to lawn with trees, shrubs and flowers dotted here and there. The owner says that when designing the garden he always had manageability in mind, so although very beautiful, it takes a minimum amount of effort to keep it looking at its best.

The current owner says that main reasons he decided to build this lovely home in this particular location was for its peace and tranquillity, but also its convenience. Bovey Tracey is a thriving town that offers a range of independent retailers, including delicatessens, butchers and a range of shops selling fresh local produce. The town is perched at the edge of Dartmoor, so one is able to take full advantage of the South Devon countryside, and the road links are excellent, should one need to travel further afield.

"The Downs was a very special home and one I have very much enjoyed. I have now built a new, much smaller property nearby, as I spend so much time out of the UK. I hope the new owner enjoys the house as much as I have."

The kitchen leads into an inner lobby giving access to an utility/shower room and cloakroom. From the breakfast room double doors lead into the snug. From here doors lead out onto the rear terrace and further doors give access to the pool room, housing a superb indoor heated swimming pool with changing room and plant/boiler room. Surrounding the pool are attractive seating areas with windows looking out over the gardens and doors leading out onto the rear terrace.

The gardens are laid mainly to lawn surrounded and interspersed with a variety of mature shrubs and trees giving privacy and a feel of peace and tranquillity. A large terrace offers a delightful area to entertain family and friends and allowing access to the pool area.

This lovely home is a hidden gem and really worth an internal visit.
