The property occupies a stunning elevated position near to the popular Dartmoor village of Lustleigh in the Dartmoor National Park. The thriving village has a strong community with a well-regarded pub, village shop/stores, tea rooms and church. The town of Bovey Tracey (4.5 miles) has an excellent range of day-to-day amenities. The property is set in a very rural, unspoilt part of the West Country, located in the picturesque Wray Valley. Nearby are the unspoilt villages of Moretonhampstead (2.8 miles) and North Bovey. The property is only 6 miles from the A38 which links Plymouth and Cornwall to the south and Exeter (16.6 miles) and the M5 to the north. Both cities have rail links to London on the Waterloo and Paddington lines.

Willow Wray is a delightful and substantial Grade II Listed family home. The charming original thatched house offers a range of historic features from inglenook fireplaces through to exposed period ceiling timbers. The first floor has been thoughtfully extended and now boosts a recently renovated and modernised oak clad single storey extension which could be used as a single storey annexe if required.
The property is surrounded by beautiful gardens comprising of gently sloping lawns with terraced vegetable and flower beds, established shrubs and a section of woodland to the rear.

A stable door from an open fronted thatched porch leads into a spacious entrance hall with woodburner and stairs rising to the first floor. To the right of the entrance hall is a period featured, dual aspect sitting room with inglenook fireplace, woodburner and original spiral stairs leading to Bedroom 2. To the left of the entrance hall is a kitchen with wall and floor mounted units, a 5-door Aga and a door leading to a ground floor WC, larder and separate utility room with doors out to the gardens.

Stairs lead from the central hall to a first floor landing off which are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom. The landing gives access to a versatile, single storey extension, recently renovated, extended, insulated and oak clad in 2017. The extension comprises a family bathroom with rain shower, double bedroom with en suite bathroom and a second sitting room. Both bathrooms are recently fitted. The extension is currently used as part of the main house but would be a useful annexe if required, having external access and its own patio area.
