Property Description

Our clients have enjoyed nearly 40 years at this stunning home and have invested and extended substantially over that time to create a really unique home of such quality.

Their attention to detail and use of top quality local businesses and trades, combined with the huge improvement to the eco-credentials including the installation of 2 ‘Daikin’ air source heat systems.
There is a wide array of PV solar panels on top of the indoor swimming pool building and our vendor's insistence to find the highest possible specification of finish, means that as soon as you enter their home you can feel the quality!
One prime example is the handmade oak staircase, with a lower tread and glass balustrading, which leads up to an architecturally-designed landing with a vaulted ceiling, providing a wonderful feeling of space and light which is just delightful!

The main hub of this home is the spacious and sociable kitchen/dining room. There is a wide range of matching wall and base units with a central island, with pull up sockets, built in quality appliances, Karndean flooring and plenty of space for a large family table. There is a purpose-built larder for extra storage and aluminium, sliding patio doors opening onto the sun trap patio with views to Dartmoor.

Double doors open to the ground floor lounge, featuring a modern, electric fire. Two arched windows adds character and ornate plaster coving and central ceiling rose.

This, in turn, has double doors into the formal dining room, with both reception rooms also accessible via the reception hall.

Completing the ground floor space is a double bedroom with an en-suite, finished with aqua panelling, quality sanitary-ware and has a built-in ‘Valiryo’ body dryer, a separate shower room and an entrance hall, with storage off.

The beautiful oak staircase leads to the stunning galleried landing, which provides access to the first floor rooms.

The master suite is gorgeous. The large sliding patio doors allow in an abundance of natural light and affords far-reaching views to Dartmoor to be enjoyed as well as provide access to the balcony.
The balcony has astro-turf flooring and glass balustrading and is a great place to relax with a morning coffee.

Designed cleverly, the main bedroom is secluded from the dressing area and has a fantastic en-suite, with another body dryer, and there is a range of built in furniture.

The first living room is an impressive and relaxing space, with an open fire featuring a marble hearth and offering superb views both to the south west to Bodmin Moor and to the south east, over miles of surrounding countryside, towards Dartmoor. There are 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom to complete to first floor.

The barn also benefits from air source underfloor heating throughout, modern aluminium windows throughout, has Karndean flooring through the majority of the ground floor and has a very useful utility room, with a separate cloak room.

The theme of attention to detail follows through in the pool building. Custom-built buy our clients built specifically for its purpose, from what was old workshop/outbuilding. It houses a 11m x 5m pool, with the same depth throughout of 1.40m, changing facilities, shower and w/c and lovely sitting area which has bi-fold doors which open up for easy access from outside to in, and from the barn to the pool as well.

The building has aircon and underfloor heating to keep the inside temperate, and has an array of PV solar panels fitted on the roof.

This stunning steel framed pool building is fully glazed to the south elevation which creates far reaching views over your garden, to the countryside beyond as well as an abundance of natural light into the pool area.

The plant room, located in the rear of the garage, houses the aircon system, the solar panel inverter (which comes with a battery back-up) and the 2 ‘Daikin’ air source heat pumps.

There is still room for 4 cars within the garage building with 4 automatic 'Hartman' doors opening to it. An automatic shutter door opens to a stairwell leading up to the first floor.

This useful room has a variety of potential uses – there are 3 skylights to the front and a window to side with a good view, which allows in a good amount of light and with there being a separate
w/c it would definitely lend itself to a work from home office, art studio or for overflow accommodation. It would definitely have annexe potential subject to the necessary planning consent.

The whole of the garage buliding has the benefit of air source underfloor heating.

The sweeping gravelled driveway leads towards the garage block, with ample parking for at least 8/10 cars and turning. It is bounded by well stocked, colourful flowerbeds and mature shrubs.
The pillared open porch is a real feature here, with easy access around both sides of the barn, to the main part of the gardens.

These measure approximately 1.4 acres.

There are large expanses of lawn, a range of mature trees and planting, interesting landscaped areas of low maintenance garden, a useful shed with electric and water, a secluded deck with an arbour over and to the immediate rear, a paved patio to enjoy the views and the sunshine.

The charming barn, currently used for storage,
has exposed timbers, its own electricity and good flooring, this area has lots of potential – an ideal office or play room, or a 'work from home office'.

This elevated position, along Staddon Road, is set on the southern fringes of the market town of Holsworthy. There is easy access, within 3/4 a mile, to the Waitrose supermarket, the range of independent businesses in the town square, which also has an open air market every Wednesday, the leisure facilities and the primary and secondary schools of the town.

A 18 hole golf course is located just outside the town, on the way to Bude, which lies about 10 miles from Holsworthy and has two sandy beaches, rugged clifftop walks and a further range of amenities.
