Sitting under Pupers Tor on the fringes of the Dartmoor National Park at Ludgate is the unique and delightful gem Furze Acres, which borders the open moorland and countryside, offering spectacular views and walks together with an excellent degree of privacy and seclusion.
Furze Acres has been lived in by the same family for some 18 years, who over time have enjoyed the opportunity of improving and adapting the accommodation to embrace its natural flow of light and the beautiful surroundings.
Furze Acres provides versatile and flexible accommodation of 4/5 bedrooms, 2 studies and a library together with a generous central kitchen opening out to the dining area where the whole family can come together at meal times.
It is very evident when visiting Furze Acres that a lot of love has gone into creating a peaceful and tranquil home, which could be used for multi generation occupation. The current owners have recently invested in a Hoval Biomass Pellet Boiler which serves the hot water and central heating, with the addition of numerous Clearview Wood burning Stoves throughout, making for a thoroughly cosy home.
An attractive moorland garden features herbaceous borders and wild flower and herb gardens. Planning permission for a solar tunnel to create a large vegetable garden is in place. A Leat from the moor brings a natural water supply which passes through various purifying filters to supply the house.
The property offers a large barn with several potential uses, a good sized carport and a large Sculptors Workshop with studio and gallery with wood burning stove. There is parking for numerous cars and a turning area.
Although Furze Acres is secluded, there are a number of neighbouring properties nearby so you will not feel isolated. Angela Bassett, senior negotiator at Marchand Petit said: “If you’re looking for a home that you can ‘kick back’ and unwind in and that offers you the potential to be self-sufficient and enjoy the surroundings of the open moor and countryside, then Furze Acres is the one for you!”
Furze Acres is offered to the market with a guide price of £675,000. For further information please contact Marchand Petit’s Totnes office on 01803 847979.
