Full Details

This is a very high-quality detached village residence with over half an acre of private gardens and a sweeping drive, making it an attractive proposition for a buyer seeking large and private gardens within a small Devon village! The house isn’t listed and has a tiled roof, yet it’s full of character and the current owners have updated and improved the house both inside and out during their time here. The house is located in the heart of the pretty Mid-Devon village of Down St Mary. The property is steeped in history and dates back to the 18th century, even being used as a meeting place for the local Sunday school in years past.

The accommodation is extremely well presented over two floors with a wonderful kitchen/breakfast room, recently fitted by Ashgrove kitchens, complete with polished granite tops and a Range style cooker (plus a real larder!). There is a large and light living room with wood-burning stove and a separate dining room. A useful utility room and WC complete the ground floor. To the first floor are 4 bedrooms with a family bathroom and an en-suite bathroom. It is worth noting that bedroom 1 has a door and bridge giving access to the garden from the first floor. It benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazed windows throughout.

The gardens are a real feature of the property, a sweeping drive dissects the lawns leading to a garage and ample parking area. The gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.6 acres with areas of formal lawn, orchard and vegetable plots. There are two greenhouses, a summer house/studio and an ornamental pond. There is ample growing or playing space making it an attractive proposition for a buyer seeking a large and private garden within a small Devon village.

You will not be disappointed with the standard of this property!
