Offering a wealth of CHARM AND CHARACTER, this substantial SIX BEDROOM PERIOD HOME is offered with the benefit of a further DETACHED CONVERTED TWO BEDROOM BARN, currently utilised as a holiday let by the current owners. The property is situated within its own grounds extending to approximately 2.5 acres and offers direct access to open moorland for those that enjoy hill/dog walking or equestrian pursuits and riding out. The property itself has retained a considerable amount of its original charm and character, although has been extensively renovated and improved by the current owners over a long period of time, benefiting from timber double glazed windows and oil fired heating. The large farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room has an oil fired 'Aga' stove, a number of inglenook fireplaces, the majority having inset woodburners. At present, the gardens and grounds are one large open parkland space with large areas of lawn and interspersed shrubs and trees. There is also a small coppice area with tree house. This could easily be sub-divided to create generous paddock enclosure. The main house has accommodation spread over three floors and the detached barn has been converted in recent years to an exceptionally high standard. It has a spacious open plan living room/ kitchen/diner, shower room/WC to the ground floor, two bedrooms and further bathroom to the first floor.


LOCATION:

Situated within Dartmoor National Park, just outside the popular village of Brentor and bordering Blackdowns, the property is exceptionally well-placed for easy access to the A386. The nearby village of Mary Tavy offers a highly regarded primary school, public house and post office/general stores. The towns of Tavistock, Okehampton and Launceston are all easily accessible by car and there is a regular bus service nearby. Brentor is synonymous with St Michael de Rupe church, often referred to as Brentor Church which sits high on the hilltop and is an impressive landmark which can be seen from many miles in all directions.
