The shippen and traditional part of the Round House, the vendor informs us, dates back originally to the middle part of the 14th century. It was acquired by our client over 25 years ago and during this time they have spent much time, effort and skill in converting it into a lovely family home where they have raised their children. Today this quirky property boasts a wealth of character and charm and is certainly well worth an early internal inspection.
The following is a quotation from the home owners:
"We have lived here for over 25 years, our children have both been born and raised here and went to the local primary school which is within walking distance. As a family we have enjoyed the safety and seclusion of our location. Being able to observe changes of the seasons and the variety of wildlife that regularly visit our woodland is just magical. Living here is quiet and peaceful. We have the space for almost any activity which the children and pets have taken full advantage of without the possibility of disturbing the neighbours and yet we are close to all the necessary amenities and commuter roads. All in all we have all been very happy here."
Internally, the accommodation comprises of a welcoming reception hall which leads through and up a few steps into the kitchen/dining room. This imposing room has a traditional country kitchen which is dual aspect and light and airy. Included in the sale is a fridge/ freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.The kitchen has a new floor and a mixture of both solid wood and polished granite work surfaces, a Belfast sink with ornate mixer taps above, wooden cupboards and an attractive brick recess where the oil fired Aga sits. From the kitchen steps ascend up to the useful mezzanine study area where there is a large loft area, which stretches a good length of the roof space. Accessed from the entrance hall there is a bedroom which could be used as a dining room if so required. Access can be gained to a further loft. The luxury family bathroom/WC has a shower unit over the roll top claw bath in the centre of the room. The inner hallway has access to the three further bedrooms. The main bedroom is dual aspect and has plenty of room for large bedroom furniture. The other two bedrooms are irregular in shape as they form part of the round house and both have French windows which open out to the driveway.The second bathroom/WC has a modern suite with a slipper bath. The whole of the first floor is allocated to the cosy feature lounge which has many roof windows and a wood burning stove providing warmth.
The barn has oil fired central heating and extensive wiring for power and television throughout. There are many character features such as solid oak internal doors, some oak and tiled flooring, oak balustrades, roof windows; oak sealed unit double glazed traditional window openings, beamed ceilings and attractive wood paneling. There are far reaching views out of many of the windows over farmland towards Kit Hill and Dartmoor.
GROUNDS Externally, the property is approached by the shared lane. A gate then opens into the gravelled driveway which provides parking and turning for several vehicles. The owner has erected a large wood framed, open fronted double bay garage with slate roof. An attractive path and wood bridge feature leads to the front door. The front garden is attractive and has a wood store and a small bin store. The gardens extend to the side of the barn and are level with a shed. The lawned area was once the base for a Dutch barn and therefore level and is now the perfect place for children to play in or for entertaining. It is able to receive the sun throughout the day. Around the back of the barn there is a small area.
LAND The residence benefits with having 6.7 acres of grounds which is laid to pasture in one large enclosure. There is a workshop with power and light and at the top of the field a further barn which could be used as a field shelter for those wanting to keep stock. At present the land is planted with immature broad leaf specimen trees such as oak and maple trees and many native Cornish trees. The terrain is a natural habitat for much wildlife including deer, fox and rabbits to name but a few.
