Some 20 years ago when our vendors first viewed "Bolts House" they only needed to look at the view of Dartmoor from the sitting room to know that this would be their next home. Traditionally you would approach the property through the front door into the dining Hall, however our vendor approaches the property from the garden, into the conservatory that enjoys a great view across the garden. The conservatory is a lovely place to unwind on a summer’s day. From here you enter the large dual aspect open plan kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has recently been refitted with a range of hand made solid wood units in a shaker style, under a solid wood worktop incorporating a Belfast sink. The kitchen area offers space for various freestanding appliances. The dining area is a great size and would offer ample space for a dining table ready for family get togethers. From here a door takes you through to the useful utility area. The sitting room is front aspect with a large picture window overlooking several Dartmoor Tors. To one side of this sizeable reception room is a multifuel wood burner ready made for cosy winter evenings. A door leads you through to the separate dual aspect study that is perfect for those who work from home or require a hobbies room. The formal dining hall is to the front of the property and has a wonderful exposed stone chimney breast housing another multifuel wood burner. A beautiful solid oak floor gives a homely feel to this reception space. A door leads into the utility and wet room beyond.
A sizeable galleried landing has lovely exposed wooden floorboards which continue through to some of the bedrooms. There are 6 bedrooms in total; four double bedrooms and two single rooms. The 3 rear aspect bedrooms enjoy an elevated view over the garden and adjoining fields, towards Dartmoor beyond. The 3 front aspect bedrooms overlook nearby open farmland. There are 2 en-suite shower rooms plus two ensuite w/c’s. The well presented family bathroom has an attractive roll top bath together with a matching suite.
The property is approached through double gates onto a brick paved driveway. Leading off the driveway is a double garage. Our vendor understands that a previous owner of the property obtained planning permission to turn this space into an annexe, however this would have since lapsed. A shed, woodstore, green house and productive orchard can be found at the end of the driveway in a tucked away sheltered position. The property sits within an enclosed plot of approximately 0.88 of an acre. The majority of this is the sizeable garden is East facing and laid to lawn with a variety of specimen trees and shrubs providing colour and interest throughout the year. The lawn passes several mature deciduous trees including a distinctive Oak, leading down to a gate providing private access onto a bridal path. This bridal path eventually leads you to the Granite Way, popular for cycling, running or walking the dog. Surrounding the conservatory is a paved area where a hot tub is located, ideal for entertaining friends. This garden has endless possibilities whether you yearn to be self-sufficient or simply want somewhere for children and pets to run off steam!
