The house ...

Edgeware is a detached house which was formerly an agricultural building and converted into a dwelling in the 1970s. Constructed principally of stone with red brick quoins, this property is located near the end of a quiet drive, well away from the from the main public highway, in a semi-rural location just into the South Hams. Ideal for a family, the house has flexible accommodation, including a large downstairs bedroom with en suite shower room. Very much an individual property, it was thoughtfully converted with rooms set out in such a way that the house is ideal either as a family home or for someone with an elderly relative. Planning permission was also obtained in the past for a conservatory and some further minor work, which is believed to still be live.

Underneath the property is a very large underfloor area with slightly restricted ceiling height, which comprises a storage room and further large room. On the ground floor, leading from the hall are the double aspect living room with French window and stone fireplace and kitchen with range of units, stainless steel sink and drainer and door straight out onto the patio. An inner hall leads into a dining room which, in turn leads into the lovely guest bedroom with its en suite and direct access to the terrace. At the far end of the inner hall is a substantial utility/boiler room with Belfast sink and cloakroom/WC off. Upstairs are three bedrooms.  The main one is bright, airy and triple aspect.  Bedroom two faces the garden.  A short flight of three stairs leads from the landing to a bath/shower room and the third bedroom with deep fitted wardrobes.

The house has evidently been well loved and cared for, but would benefit from a little updating.  It however, features upvc double glazing to most of its windows and, unusually for a rural property, there is mains gas fired central heating.  Water is via a private supply shared with the nearby barn and there is shared, private drainage.

The gardens ....

Outside, Edgeware has a delightful, landscaped garden with good area of lawn and a variety of colourful flowers, shrubs and trees.  It is a very attractive backdrop to this distinctive building.  There is ample parking adjacent to the property.

Location ....

Well located, Edgeware is only about a quarter of a mile from the A38 Devon Expressway which gives direct and fast access to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter.  The small town of Buckfastleigh is about a mile away and the historic town of Totnes, with its main line railway station, just over 10 minutes’ drive.  The National Park boundary is a quarter of a mile distant and some of the most beautiful parts of Dartmoor are within easy reach.
