A substantial well presented home, sitting beautifully in a plot of approximately 1.8 acres, in the very heart of this picturesque rural Hamlet, just 10 minutes from both Dittisham and Dartmouth, with 5 bedrooms, stunning gardens, garage, parking, detached Summer House and wonderful far reaching views.
Nestled in a secluded rural hamlet in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty enjoying stunning panoramic countryside views, within easy reach of both Dittisham and Dartmouth. Kelbechan House was built approximately 30 years ago and has been lovingly extended and maintained by the current owners.
This beautifully presented modern 5 bedroom home with absolutely charming gardens of approximately 1.8 acres represents a wonderful opportunity for a lifestyle change with a move to the countryside with home office potential, in peaceful surroundings, yet only 10 minutes from the popular river side town of Dartmouth. The extensive wrap around gardens are a real delight, and a wonderful feature of this home, with an abundance of mature shrubs, plants and trees. Approached over a gated driveway providing ample parking, there is also an integrated double garage currently used as a gym/workshop/storage.
The house is flooded with natural light and the accommodation is spacious throughout. On the ground floor is a porch with ample storage for boat and outdoor equipment, a most welcoming entrance hall and cloakroom, a more formal dining room, the sitting room with feature fireplace with 'Morso' woodburning stove and door through to the garden room with a potting room off. Double doors lead out from the garden room to a covered veranda, a wonderful secluded space from where to enjoy your morning coffee. The kitchen/family room has been extended by the current owners with an emphasis on the keen amateur cook. It is well fitted and thoughtfully planned for ease of use, with integrated appliances and plenty of worktop space; the six feature roof lights create a wonderful flood of light and feeling of space. Leading off the kitchen is a most useful utility room and a further boot room/pantry with direct access in to both the garden and garage.
There are 5 bedrooms on the first floor. Bedroom 2 which the vendors use as their bedroom has a pretty balcony off looking out over the garden, bedroom 1 has an en suite bathroom, bedroom 4 is currently used as a home office and there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The extensive wrap around grounds provide a haven of peace and relaxation, and are a particular feature of this wonderful home, having been landscaped and designed to give maximum enjoyment throughout the seasons with seating areas enabling you to enjoy sunshine throughout the day, and incorporating natural wildlife areas as well as more formal gardens. There are various garden buildings/stores including a large greenhouse needed to maintain this exquisite garden. The covered veranda sundeck at the rear of the house adjoins the kitchen and conservatory, from here steps lead to a more private garden area screened by shrubs and trees; incorporating the 'upper deck' - a peaceful haven ideal for entertaining with a clay oven to the rear. Further areas available to enjoy are an orchard with a variety of fruit trees, a working garden with a large greenhouse a fruit cage filled with redcurrants, blackcurrants, gooseberries, raspberries and raised beds for propagating vegetables. At the top of the garden sits the timber clad garden house with its own log burner and decked terrace providing a wonderful space to sit with an early evening drink whilst watching the sun go down. The views are panoramic and enjoyed to the west across the gardens and as far as the Dartmoor National Park.
