A substantial character property set within its own grounds of approximately half an acre enjoying stunning countryside views, extensive gardens, six bedrooms and a detached garage for four cars. Originally built in 1835 adjacent to a leat driven water mill, the property was purchased from the Maristow Estate in 1890 and used by the Reservoir Keeper until it was extensively renovated and extended in 1987. The current owners have since made many improvements including a conservatory off the main living room and a large timber built detached garage to the already impressive accommodation this property has to offer.

The versatile living accommodation is arranged over two levels which briefly comprises entrance hall, living room, conservatory, dining room, recently fitted kitchen, utility room, breakfast room, morning room and a bedroom with adjacent bathroom on the ground floor, six bedrooms, a bathroom and separate shower room on the first floor. A door from the landing leads to a paved roof terrace enjoying fabulous views across farmland and Dartmoor beyond.

Externally a sweeping driveway leads through a predominantly lawned garden to a parking forecourt at the front of the property with a path leading to the side and rear. The rear garden is again predominantly laid to lawn with a raised vegetable plot and also benefits from the lovely views this property has to offer. A door provides access to a useful workshop/garden store with planning permission for commercial use which in turn also has a door leading to the parking forecourt at the front.

This interesting property offers many enviable features including open fireplaces with fitted wood burners, solid oak flooring to the ground floor, exposed beams in the living room and PVCu double glazed sash style windows.

An internal viewing comes highly recommended to fully appreciate the size and versatility of the living space.
