Hayes End, West Hill, Ottery St. Mary, EX11
An idyllic Devon lifestyle can be enjoyed in this beautifully presented 4 bedroom detached property, set within 16 acres, enjoying its own lake and arguably one of the best views of Dartmoor in the Teign valley. Whilst secluded and enjoying its own privacy, this property has the added benefit of being moments away from the much sought after village of Dunsford.
As you enter the gate at the end of the drive, you are immediately drawn down to the house as it only half revels itself from the drive albeit you can already ascertain that there are amazing views waiting to be revealed.
From the moment the front door opens, you are greeted by a large, light and spacious hall way, off this is a delightful dual aspect lounge with patio doors leading to raised decking, suitable for alfresco dining or just enjoying a jug of Pimms whilst admiring the views of your own private meadow, paddock and obviously those spectacular ones of Dartmoor.
The current owner has undertaken a renovation/modernisation of the property including taking full advantage of the range of Farrow & Ball colours creating a more contemporary feel.
On entering the property you are greeted by a large open entrance hallway off which is a cloakroom.
The kitchen diner is a large open plan room running the length of the east elevation of the house meaning breakfast and morning coffee is enjoyed with the sun streaming through the windows. Off the dining area is another terrace area which is a sun trap for the morning sun. Next to the kitchen there is a separate utility room.
The sitting room is adjacent to the kitchen diner and is a well proportioned room a lovely wood burner set in an attractive brick fireplace with exposed wooden lintel over, perfect for cosy winters evenings. The sitting room features French doors that lead out to a decked terrace.
Also on the ground floor there are two double bedrooms, one with access to a further terrace and bathroom servicing the bedrooms.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms, both with skylights affording stunning views and including the master bedroom which has been designed to incorporate its own ensuite and dressing area.
THE GARDENS AND GROUNDS:
The driveway is large enough to accommodate numerous cars and additionally there is a double garage and separate car port.
Immediately around the house there is a good size garden bordered by mature hedges and trees creating an enclosed space, ideal for children and pets to run around.
There are a number of terraces which are accessed off the house or directly from the garden from which the best of the weather can be enjoyed at differing times of the day. On one of the terraces the owner has installed a hot tub and thoughts of sitting back and enjoying a glass of fizz whilst looking at the views are immediately conjured up.
This can be accessed through the garden via a tradition style timber farm gate or from the top of the driveway where you will find a separate set of timber farm gates leading to the barn and meandering down through a tree lined route towards the lake and adjacent fields/paddock.
The fields can be let to farmers, or would be ideal for horses/ponies and are individually stock fenced and have water supply.
There is a small area of woodland, ideal for self sufficiency during the winter months keeping the log burner fired up.
During the summer months, imagine picnics and perhaps kayaking or fishing on the lake and a gentle stroll enjoying spectacular views from the land.
