Superb DETACHED country residence with STYLISH interiors comprising a CONVERTED large PERIOD coach house and stables formerly serving a nearby MANOR HOUSE set in about 1.8 ACRES of GROUNDS and reached by a PRIVATE ROAD. The property is under a mile from the well served village of Bridestowe and is well positioned for access to the Dartmoor National Park, about two miles away, the nearby towns of Okehampton and Tavistock, and the A30 leading to Exeter. The property was originally converted some 30 years ago and was subsequently completely remodelled and expanded to incorporate the adjoining stables. The result is a delightfully individual, spacious and versatile residence, configured as a superbly roomy family home or with potential for use as a house and self contained annexe if required. The property retains plenty of character of the original coach house and stables, contrasted with high quality modern features and facilities including oil fired central heating which is partly underfloor. The focal point of the house is the coach house drawing room which is a most impressive space having a full height vaulted ceiling with five exposed A-frame roof timbers. The three original high coach house doors to the front have been glazed, and two of these incorporate French doors opening onto the front court area. There are two further large arched windows to rear, impressive Minster stone fireplace with carved relief and deep granite hearth.


Reached by a long shared private drive the property is set to the rear of Millaton House which it once served as the coach house and stables. The nearby village of Bridestowe offers a primary school, post office/general store, recently constructed village hall, inn and two churches. The town of Okehampton is within a short drive, offering a range of shops and services with three supermarkets including a Waitrose, primary school and the well regarded Okehampton College. Just beyond the town lies the Dartmoor National Park and the A30 dual carriageway providing access to the Cathedral City of Exeter in about 30 minutes by car. The town of Tavistock is also within easy driving distance, again with a good range of local shops, historic Pannier Market and Mount Kelly independent school.
