This handsome countryside residence is situated in an elevated yet private position on the fringe of Hoo Meavy, near the moorland village of Clearbrook. The property is within extremely easy reach of Plymouth city and commutable distance of Derriford Hospital, whilst also being within proximity of Yelverton and Tavistock. Open moorland is accessible in several directions, within less than a mile, providing incredible opportunities for active families and those with an outdoors-oriented lifestyle.

Yelverton is an extremely popular and sought-after village on the fringe of Dartmoor National Park providing an excellent range of day-to-day amenities, with the parade of shops featuring a mini-supermarket, local butchers, delicatessen, cafe and pharmacy, whilst the village also has a GP Surgery, Texaco fuel station, Post Office and Veterinary Surgery, as well as a selection of eateries and a popular Free House, The Rock Inn. For the sports enthusiast, there are golf, cricket, tennis and bowling clubs. In all, Yelverton offers a very high standard of living with a wonderful sense of community.

Tavistock is a thriving market town in West Devon, rich in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century. Today, the town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after private and independent school, Mount Kelly. Plymouth is 9 miles to the south and the city of Exeter lies 35 miles to the northeast, providing transport to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5.

This extremely impressive former farmhouse has been comprehensively refurbished by the current owners and now provides beautifully presented 5-bedroom accommodation extending to over 3,000 sq.ft. Each room is bright, superbly proportioned and finished to an extremely high standard, incorporating stylish, contemporary convenience and comfort amongst numerous character features and period details, such as Victorian fireplaces, coving and picture rails. Externally, the property occupies a plot of 0.37 acres, including a pretty, landscaped walled front garden, and a west-facing sun terrace. Some breathtaking, 180-degree views of surrounding moorland and countryside are on offer to the south and west, particularly from the kitchen/family room, whilst all of the front-facing rooms enjoy an outlook over the garden. Importantly, the property is being offered with no onward chain.

The accommodation is wonderfully presented and offers a great deal of versatility for active family life. On the front elevation, a stone porch leads into a large, warm and welcoming reception hallway with a well-appointed cloakroom to one side and limestone floor tiling which continues through much of the ground floor. The accommodation on this level includes: a beautifully bright, dual-aspect sitting room centred around a fireplace housing a log-burning stove; a home office with a newly fitted utility cupboard, beyond the sitting room; a very cosy and practical snug sitting room or study, featuring a former fireplace, and; a dedicated dining room located off the kitchen/family room, with an adjacent walk-in pantry. Located at the head of the hallway, the incredibly striking kitchen/family room is very much the hub of this home, providing versatile living space and enjoying panoramic views across the surrounding countryside towards Clearbrook. The kitchen itself is equipped with a superb range of cabinets and cupboards as well as a huge central island with a hard-wired power connection, providing additional storage, drawer space and a wine rack. There are white quartz worktops which incorporate a ceramic 1.5-bowl sink with drainers on either side, an integrated dishwasher and a large upright fridge. Separately, there is an Everhot electric range cooker including three ovens, an induction hob and separate hot plates. The living/dining area includes a wood burner and there are patio doors leading out to the slate-paved sun terrace.

Stairs rise from the hallway to a split landing. On the first floor are five bedrooms, including four doubles. Two appealing double bedrooms face west and enjoy the views. The master suite encompasses an enormous bedroom with triple wardrobes and a well-appointed en-suite shower room. Finally, the part-panelled family bathroom is equipped with a 4-piece suite to include a corner shower with a rain-style head, plus a freestanding clawfoot bath.

The house is complemented by an attractive, lawned walled front garden with well-stocked beds and borders, interspersed with several trees and specimen shrubs. The attractive views are available from the garden and particularly from the slate patio that is located directly outside the kitchen/family room, making it perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining. There is gravelled driveway parking space for up to five vehicles. Located within the garden are a timber Victorian-style 10'x8' greenhouse, a 5x4m timber workshop a separate tool shed, all built in late 2023.
