Full description

The Billiard Room, Hawson Court occupies a magnificent setting on the southern lower slopes of the Dartmoor National Park, approximately two miles north west of the town of Buckfastleigh and just a short distance from the local community of Scoriton with its village meeting hall and pub.

It is surrounded by excellent walking and riding country and the rugged landscape of the open Moor is just a short distance away.

Although undoubtedly occupying a rural position, Hawson Court enjoys good communications and is around three miles from the A38 Devon Expressway which links the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter. There are main line railway stations at Totnes and Newton Abbot, with direct connections to London Paddington. The South Devon coastline, with its sandy beaches and sheltered coves, is also within easy motoring distance.

The Billiard Room is an individual country property which offers spacious family sized accommodation and incorporates the original billiard room to the nearby Hawson Court Estate.

It includes an entrance porch/boot room, kitchen with modern units and granite work surfaces, large living room with vaulted ceiling, wood burner and some stained glass windows (original billiard room), three double bedrooms, bathroom and separate shower room. There is a large attic which offers potential for conversion, subject to any required consents.

Outside, the property is set in large gardens and ground with expanses of lawn, various trees and shrubbery beds and an adjoining area of woodland and summer house cabin.

There is parking for three vehicles and both the garden and house have views over neighbouring countryside. The property is accessed over a shared private country track/drive.
