Looking for a truly UNIQUE and STUNNING home with INCOME POTENTIAL? PERFECT FOR ENTERTAINING with a GRAND dining room, 28’ KITCHEN, and veranda with VIEWS to Dartmoor for sunset cocktails, plus plenty of bedrooms for guests, paying or otherwise! This stunning Grade II Listed home and income opportunity has potential letting units, and substantial six bedroom family home. The property is of timber construction, and was designed and imported from Norway in the 1870s in kit form, then constructed here in the UK. It offers a wealth of character features like ornate carved timber ceiling roses and cornices, with beautiful woodwork evident throughout the home. One of only two as we understand it within the UK, these properties were shipped over new in kit form, and newly constructed at the time. The other similar property, is currently a hotel in Scotland. Burton Hall has been in its history a private residence for Lady Burton, a hotel and a country club, and today is a stunning family home with two apartments within the main property, and a further detached timber lodge within the gardens which is being used as a lucrative letting unit for holiday lets and Air B&B. The lodge enjoys its own private garden area, and an attractive summer house, with pleasant views over the adjoining farm land. Accommodation - Main House The entrance to the property is via two sets of imposing double doors around which is an ornately carved timber roofline. The spacious entrance hall occupies the centre of the property and leads to remainder of the the high-ceilinged ground floor accommodation which includes a grand wood-panelled dining room with hand-carved cornicing and ceiling rose, inviting living room with wood panelled ceiling and log burner, and a spacious snug / home office. Doors off the dining room open on to the delightful veranda at the rear of the home, where views over the grounds towards Dartmoor can be enjoyed. The hand-carved wood panelling continues into the extremely large kitchen which is filled with light from the 4 large windows overlooking the grounds. A generous pantry/store room and utility/WC complete the ground floor. Also located in the east wing of this floor is one of the two apartments located within the main house (see separate description). Climbing the wide oak staircase to the first floor you reach a spacious landing with library nook, off which the six bedrooms and family bathroom can be accessed. All bedrooms are very generously proportioned, and the primary bedroom enjoys a light and airy ensuite shower room. Present in the east wing on this level is the second annexe apartment (see separate description). Underneath the house is a large cellar made up of various rooms and storage areas which has its own independent access from the garden, as well as a secondary staircase internally. Outside The property is set within lovely grounds of approximately 1.2 acres which are in an elevated position on a hillside above the town, affording stunning views. The generous lawned gardens have a southerly aspect and range from more to less formal. There are multiple distinct areas to enjoy the outdoors - sun-drenched lawns for enjoying the sunshine, benches looking towards Dartmoor, mature trees providing shady spots to relax, terraces for outdoor dining and a seasonal pond where bullrushes grow to spot local wildlife. The gardens include established shrub and flower bed borders with a wide variety of shrubs including rhodedendrons and broadleaf and coniferous trees, some of which are covered by tree preservation orders. There is a productive vegetable plot for those who enjoy gardening, as well as a greenhouse and useful shed for storage of garden equipment. The tarmaced driveway provides a private approach to the home, and opens up around the front of the main house to offer parking for numerous vehicles, in addition to that within the two garages on the property. Accommodation - Separate Units Ground Floor Apartment: This two bedroom apartment is centred around an open plan Living-Dining-Kitchen area which looks out on to the grounds via two large windows. The wood panelling, chandelier and woodstove lend lots of character to the space. The primary bedroom has hand-carved cornicing and both bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms. The apartment has an outdoor patio area and a private entrance. First Floor Annexe Apartment: This one-bedroom apartment is located in the east wing of the house, with Living Room, Kitchen-Diner, Bedroom and Bathroom, all enjoying high ceilings, wood panelling and exposed beams. Large windows give views over the grounds towards Dartmoor. Apartment is accessed from within the main house. Detached Timber Lodge: This one-bedroom cabin is separate from the main house and has its own private garden and attractive summer house with views over the adjoining farm land. The lodge has a large open plan Living-Dining-Kitchen area off which lead a bedroom and a bathroom at either end. The letting units offer extensive flexibility to potential purchasers, having generated a comfortable income for the vendors and so providing a viable home + income option for future owners, or alternatively the accommodation arrangement could suit dual family or multi-generational living. Location The property sits on the fringe North Tawton which offers a range of local amenities including general store, public houses, takeaways, doctors surgery and pharmacy. There is a highly respected county primary school. The nearby towns of Okehampton and Crediton are both easily accessible by car, and both offer additional rail links to Exeter where one can access the main Penzance to Paddington line. The city of Exeter is approximately 21 miles away, and offers a more comprehensive retail and commerce centre as well as additional road, rail and air links. The North and South coasts of the county are both approximately 45 minutes drive away and offer sandy beaches, and stunning coastal walks. Dartmoor National Park is approximately 15 minutes drive away offering vast expanses of stunning open countryside, and attractive walks. The A30 dual carriageway, being the central arterial route through Devon and Cornwall, is approximately 15 minute drive away offering easy access West into Cornwall or East to Exeter and the M5 intersection.
