2 acres of woodland with your home?

10 Stoneyhill is a delightful extended three/four bedroom end of terrace house situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac within the parish of Abbotskerswell. 

This is not your normal end of terrace property and on entering the side gate from the parking area the garden opens into lawns with a designated area for a summer house (no structure in place) offering extensive views over surrounding countryside and to Dartmoor in the distance. 

From the garden lawn a path leads to a wonderful 2 acre woodland stocked with numerous species of mature trees such as Canadian Maple, Cracked Willow and English Walnut together with several species of flora and fauna (bluebells, primroses and wild cyclamen) which burst into life in the spring. 

There are pathways that run through the woodland together with a sunken road which dates from Saxon times together with a level grassed area offering an ideal location for quiet reading or to relax under the canopy of the trees.  

The current vendors have also started to create a natural pond and with a little bit more work will make a lovely addition to this area. Angela Bassett, Senior Sales Negotiator commented: “If this is not already enough to tempt you, there is also a generous sized garage and separate workshop which fronts onto the garden and offers the potential to be a home office or studio with adjoining office/study space to the side.”

The house is very traditional in style and on entering the rear lobby and utility area you have a ground floor shower room which is ideal for freshening up after a day in the garden or workshop. 

From the lobby a door leads through into the kitchen with a good range of fitted units with natural wood work surfaces and windows on two sides overlooking the garden. 

A large dining room occupies the centre of the house with a window overlooking the garden. The sitting room has a feature fireplace with hand carved surround, recessed bookshelves and window to the front. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a study/fourth bedroom to the rear with a stable door to the garden. Stairs rise from the dining room to the first floor level onto a spacious landing with three bedrooms and a family bathroom.  

This really is a house that needs to be viewed to be appreciated. 10 Stoneyhill is offered for sale with a Guide Price of £350,000. For further information please contact the Totnes branch of Marchand Petit Estate Agents on 01803 847979.
