The house sits in 1.75 acres of Dartmoor, the land being next to a big brook that tumbles down from the hills in cataracts and waterfalls. Being upon raised ground, the house is safe from flooding, an important requirement nowadays. At the front, there is a parking space for a couple of vehicles and there is also a separate garage, by the ford. The front garden is established, with mature shrubs, including weeping cherry, rhododendrons, camellia and magnolia trees. It has an open-fronted summer house and a greenhouse. Next to the house is a large slate terrace, to take advantage of the rural views and enjoy alfresco dining.
At the back, the land slopes up more steeply, to a couple of sheds, used as workshops and a large formal pond, with a surrounding paved area. Further up is a wildlife pond, occupied by frogs and newts. Paths lead up to a woodland area, with a woodland hut that is used as a tea house and a rustic deck looking out across the moor, towards Cosdon Hill. A small seasonal brook from the moor runs through the garden, dry in summer and a plunging series of mini-waterfalls and cataracts the rest of the year. The land is set out as a natural or wild garden. It has acid soil and so suits rhododendrons and azaleas, of which there are many.
The property has only one immediate neighbour and is not overlooked. Since the land is sloping it would not suit everybody, but the advantage is that it benefits from having waterfalls and the sound of running water throughout the garden. There is also two pools, two sheds, a woodland hut, raised decking, viewing platform, suspended bridge as well as a rain hut.
The property is a short walk from the amenities including a general stores and pubic houses. There is also a highly regarded Primary School in the adjoining village of South Zeal along with further local amenities. Sticklepath is situated on the fringe of Dartmoor National Park with easy access to the wide open spaces offered by the Moors.
