DELIGHTFUL PERIOD COUNTRY HOME in approx.. 4 ACRES. EXPOSED BEAMS and INGLENOOK FIREPLACES create a stunning characterful home in IDYLLIC COUNTRYSIDE. This four-bedroom Grade II listed country house dates in part back to the 15th Century and offers a wealth of charm and character. Believed to have been thatched originally, the home now has a tiled roof and a range of delightful period features such as exposed beams, and cruck frames in addition to large inglenook fireplaces. The home sits in approximately four acres of grounds in a quiet rural location and is reached via a long sweeping driveway. The plot includes beautiful gardens, a paddock and pond, as well as several useful outbuildings. This versatile property has four bedrooms and offers the opportunity to segregate one of those off into an independent one-bedroom annexe or letting unit. The ground floor of the home has exposed beams throughout, and multiple reception spaces via a sitting room with inglenook fireplace and adjoining garden room, dining room, and spacious breakfast room. The kitchen is galley-style and stretches across the rear of the home. On the first floor can be found the main bedroom with en suite, two further bedrooms and a shower room. The adjoining annex/cottage offers an open plan living/kitchen/dining room, the home’s fourth bedroom and en suite bathroom. The property is under 10 minutes’ drive to both the A30 corridor as well as the bustling town of Okehampton which offers a wide range of local amenities and three supermarkets including a Waitrose. From Okehampton you can travel by rail to Exeter and from there connect on to London. Outdoor pursuits are well catered for by the nearby Dartmoor National Park, and the beaches of the north coast are about a 35 minute drive away.
