**3D tour available online** A very special family home on the edge of Dartmoor, recently renovated to create a high specification property which offers space, individuality and practicality all at once – this really is one not to be missed.

What a place! This home is truly special. Located on the North East edge of Dartmoor in the small village of Crockernwell and ideally positioned for easy access to the A30, both coasts and the moor. The house has been greatly improved and extended by the current owners to create a large, modern and truly special property that will not disappoint. The renovations have been done with sympathy to the original home using traditional styling and the curves and use of wood in both the old and new parts of the house works wonderfully well. Having been fully renovated in 2013, the current owners had future technology well in mind. With wired speakers in three rooms and the garden, all rooms having at least one television and ethernet point and with fibre optic cabling installed in some places, this house was "future proofed”.

The entrance hall is spacious and sets the tone for the rest of the property with neutral décor and a wood burning stove, the room is warm and inviting. Throughout the whole house there is underfloor heating (zoned and digital thermostats to each room) which is run by an efficient pellet boiler in the outbuilding plus wood burning stoves to the 3 reception rooms on the front of the house. The main living room has a “hidden tv” to keep the character of the room and a projector can be lowered from the ceiling with integrated audio for a full cinema experience. There is a good-sized study/snug too which adds flexibility to the ground floor. In addition, there is also a ground floor bedroom (5th bedroom) at the rear of the house, which could be a second study or play room with its own shower room. The whole rear of the house was an addition (but doesn’t feel like it) and home to a superb kitchen/dining room with bi-folding doors to the rear garden. The kitchen certainly has the wow factor and offers modern day living without losing character which ties it to the original house seamlessly. There is also a large hall with stairs to the first floor, doors to the garden and space for coats and shoes plus a utility room keeping white goods out of the kitchen.

On the first floor, there are 4 bedrooms off the landing with 2 benefiting from en-suite shower rooms and a lovely family bathroom with a view over the garden and surrounding countryside from the bath (plus separate shower). The master bedroom is full of character with its exposed truss and electrically controlled roof lights and blinds.

Outside is ample parking plus an additional gated entrance to the rear garden, making maintenance and access easy to the rear of the property. The rear garden has a lower seating area and just a couple of steps up to a level lawn which is bordered at the rear by farmland. The garden is secure and private with a sunken trampoline so the view remains uninterrupted. There is a fantastic workshop and store which is ideal hobby space and a modern garden room which is fully insulated with large glass doors and beautiful views. Both the workshop and the garden room have power and internet connections.

Please see the floorplan for room sizes.
