When this fine property was built approximately 15 years ago it is very clear that a lot of thought went into the layout, the flow throughout and positioning to make the most of the orientation of the sun. One of the most striking features is the amount of light that comes into the principal rooms and that the gardens and grounds, in the region of 0.4 acre, play such a major part in the lifestyle to be had here. The use of a ground source heat pump and photo voltaic panels help make this an energy efficient home to run.

From one of the gated driveways with its double garage, a brick paviour path leads through the garden past the swimming pool complex to the front door beyond which you enter into a vaulted reception where you get a sense that this is really something quite special and the fine Oak staircase makes quite a statement. The curved drawing room has no less than four sets of opening double doors to the outside and a Minster Stone fireplace with log burner provides a focal point. One can only imagine enjoying the summer afternoons and evenings in this room with all the doors open and what an ideal place with which to entertain.

From the hall a small flight of stairs lead down into an inner hall where the study, cloakroom and large store cupboard are found. Double doors lead into the kitchen breakfast room, a great entertaining space complete with an extensive range of wall floor and drawer units with associated polished granite work surfaces, island unit complete with sink and Quooker instant hot water tap and appliances include a Rangemaster induction hob with double oven hob, extractor, microwave, dish washer, coffee machine and a Rangemaster double door fridge freezer.

Double doors lead into the two story garden/sun room which is almost atrium like in its design with full height glazing and glass roof. Sitting in here you get a sense of calm with the pond outside, fish swimming around and the sound of the water fountain tumbling down. Opening up from the kitchen a rear hall gives access to the second driveway and a connecting door leads into the double garage. A circular set of stairs lead to the upper floor Annex with open plan sitting room/ kitchen/ bedroom. The kitchen area has a full range of matching wall and base units, integrated fridge freezer, double oven and four ring electric hob. On a clear day, Dartmoor can be seen in tdistance beyond the village church. Accessed through the garage is a large utility/laundry/boiler room complete with units, work tops, appliance space, two boilers serving the hot water, heating and swimming pool.

Rounding off the accommodation is the plant room complete with geothermic ground source heat pump, pool filtration plant, running gear for the photo voltaic panels found on the swimming pool roof and gardeners WC. and a door leads out into the rear garden.

First Floor
Effectively Latchford has been built on half levels so the stairs are short runs and on the first floor is found a well-proportioned master suite complete with wardrobe cupboards, double opening doors with Juliet balcony opening over the garden/sun room having views across the pond to the fields beyond. The hotel like ensuite offers twin wash hand basins with Corian surface, large walk in shower with remote control, tiled walls and Geberit Aquaclean Mera toilet. The second bedroom suite also offers a bank of wardrobe cupboards along one wall as well as having an equally stylish en suite shower room.

A further small run of stairs lead to a galleried landing where the two remaining double bedroom suites are found both with views, Juliet balconies and one having wardrobe cupboards.

One cannot emphasize enough the quality of fittings, the attention to detail throughout and the potential style of living to be enjoyed.

Swimming Pool Complex
This is approached off the reception hall and comprises a cloakroom, shower/changing room with oversized shower cubicle. The 21' pool has a depth of about 5' and at one end has a swim current generator. The pool hall itself has tiled floor and walls, a vaulted ceiling, tiled large windows and opening doors into the gardens.
The two double garages, one on either side of the house, are approached over brick paviour driveways with metal gates, both have electric up and over doors and power and light connected. All paths are wheelchair accessible.

Gardens and Grounds
As agents we understand that the garden was designed and installed by St John's Garden Centre, Barnstaple and what they have created is a lovely oasis of calm, centred on the oversized pond complete with lit fountain, Koi Carp and tumbling waterfall. There is a small area of formal lawn adjacent to the luxury Wolsey design, Crown Pavilion gazebo, which is a great space for al fresco dining. Within the well-stocked gardens compete with box, acers, rose, hosta, photinia red robin, heathers are meandering paths, low stone walls and several places just to sit, ponder or read whilst listening to the tumbling of the water.
