The property is located in the popular, semi-rural hamlet of Dainton, down a no through road sparsely lined with similar, characterful properties. Situated approximately halfway between the pretty medieval town of Totnes and the lively, bustling market town of Newton Abbot is the popular village of Ipplepen and the small rural hamlet of Dainton is located approximately one mile to the east. Ipplepen has an extensive range of amenities including; a small supermarket, post office, primary school, two churches, public house, medical centre, sports field/play park and village hall. Newton Abbot and Totnes both offer a wider range of amenities and main line railway stations linking to London Paddington. The A38 Devon Expressway is also within easy reach which allows commuting to Plymouth, Exeter and beyond via the M5 Motorway.

Dainton Cider Press provides well laid out and flexible accommodation offering annexe potential (subject to necessary permissions) with bedrooms on both the ground and first floors. Many of the rooms feature dual aspect windows as well as large Velux windows flooding the accommodation with light. The property has plenty of reception space and four or five bedrooms depending on use. Outside there is parking, a garage and enclosed rear garden. Across the quiet country lane to the front is a detached paddock with a variety of trees and shrubs as well as established raised beds.

The front door leads into the reception dining hall with attractive tiled flooring which flows into the kitchen and garden room. There are front and rear windows which flood the room with light making this a lovely entrance to the property whilst there is plenty of space for sizeable dining furniture for entertaining. The sitting room has three sets of French doors opening to the front of the property and a characterful wood burning stove with slate hearth. The kitchen has a range of floor and wall mounted units above and below granite and oak worktops with tiled surrounds. There is an integrated dishwasher and attractive Villeroy & Boch sink whilst there is space for an electric range cooker and fridge/freezer. This is another very light space with windows to the front, a glazed door to the garden as well as a Velux window in the roof. Next to the kitchen there is a cloakroom with space and plumbing for a washing machine whilst there is additional storage for coats and shoes. Linking the reception rooms to the ground floor bedrooms via double glazed doors is a wonderful garden room with characterful exposed beams and stonework, partially glazed roof and tiled flooring. From here the terrace and garage can be accessed.

Next to the garden room are two ground floor bedrooms and a snug with a bathroom. This area could be utilised as an annexe (subject to necessary permissions) as it has its own access from the garden and own oil-fired boiler. This space features a wonderful vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers and large Velux windows as well as windows overlooking the garden. The snug has French doors opening to the terrace and the bathroom is partially tiled with a shower over as well as heated towel rail, wash hand basin and WC.

Stairs rise from the dining hall to the first-floor landing which has a built-in desk and large Velux window which brings in natural light to the landing and staircase. On the first floor there are three further bedrooms with the master benefitting from a partially tiled, ensuite shower room. The two remaining bedrooms are served by a wet room with shower over, heated towel tail, wash hand basin and WC. All three bedrooms have large Velux windows which have wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.

There is parking for two vehicles to the front as well as a garage to the side with two large timber doors, power and light and a door to a rear passage. From the front of the property there are windows and doors opening onto a narrow curtilage bordered by a dwarf wall offering plenty of space for potted plants and topiary. The garden to the rear is a real sun trap and very private, as it faces west and is surrounded by high walling on all sides. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and is bordered by deep flower beds and several sitting areas which are perfect for alfresco dining. A delightful Silver Birch watches over the garden and a myriad of bountiful climbers including a prolific wisteria span the walls and verandah.

Across the lane is a sizeable paddock which is interspersed with mature shrubs and fruit trees. The paddock provides space for those looking to live the 'good life' with raised vegetable beds, a green house and plenty of space to keep chickens.

Mains electricity, mains water and private drainage. Oil fired central heating. Electric solar panels.

From Totnes take the A381 towards Newton Abbot. After approximately five miles, turn right just after the village of Ipplepen at Park Hill Cross sign posted to Compton and Marldon. Proceed along this road and take the second turning left after approximate ¼ of a mile. The road leads to the quiet Hamlet of Dainton where Dainton Cider Press is then found on the left.
