A secluded and unique detached 1920s house with arts and crafts influence, large gardens and unspoilt rural views.
The Meadows is a charming older style family house of unique character providing spacious three bedroomed accommodation with excellent quality features. These include an attractive granite fireplace, several double aspect rooms, quarry tiled floors, handmade oak staircase and wonderful oak front door. The property benefits from gas central heating and leaves further potential for significant extension, subject to planning consent. An important feature of The Meadows is the superb grounds. A parking area and garage give way to sweeping lawns bordered by fine mature trees. Both the house and grounds enjoy unspoilt westerly views towards Ugborough Beacon.
To conclude; The Meadows is a very special property indeed. Believed possibly to have been built by Buckfast Abbey this delightful jewel of a property offers great potential in a very private and secluded setting, a short walk from village amenities.
The Meadows occupies a delightful position on the fringes of South Brent, and the beautiful Dartmoor National Park. This is excellent walking and riding country, and is also in close proximity to fantastic coastal scenery and beaches. South Brent has a good range of shops, a health centre, dentist, churches and pubs. There is a thriving pre-school and primary school, with a choice of secondary schooling in nearby Totnes, Ivybridge or Ashburton. A busy community centre with its own library also provides a focus for a plethora of clubs and social events, along with a recreation ground and sports pavilion. The village benefits from easy access to a mainline station at Totnes and to the A38 Devon Expressway allowing quick travel times to both Exeter and Plymouth.
