PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Ivy House is set in a quiet courtyard within Moorhaven Village, an imaginative and tasteful development on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. Originally a late Victorian Hospital, Moorhaven was converted into approximately 100 individual homes in the 1990's. The village has now become an established community and offers managed private grounds, a woodland walk, nursery, sports field, two tennis courts, croquet lawn and a boules pitch which all of the residents can enjoy. Moorhaven Village sits on 65 acres and has outstanding views of the South Devon Countryside.
This substantial home has imposing rooms offering versatile accommodation and is a spacious family residence. Without a doubt one of the main features of this property is the uninterrupted far reaching views of the South Hams and Dartmoor, enjoyed from many rooms including the lounge and master bedroom. All of the rooms are welcoming and bright with sunshine flooding the house. There are impressive features such as high ceilings and generous elegant sash windows.
As you enter the property the front door opens into a substantial hall with doors leading to various rooms including a spacious kitchen diner, lounge which boasts magnificent views from its three meter high windows as well as extensive storage, shower room, light and airy study, kitchenette/utility room and the fifth bedroom/family room. Also on the ground floor is a snug with a wood burning stove and a generous under-stairs cupboard. Previous owners used part of the downstairs as an annex because of the proximity of the kitchenette and bathroom to bedroom five.
Upstairs there are four double bedrooms. The master bedroom is truly magnificent in its dimensions and includes a walk in wardrobe and en-suite with free standing bath and shower. This bedroom has stunning views over the South Hams to the sea and this can be enjoyed from window seats; which also offer more storage. Bedroom two is well proportioned with an en-suite. Bedroom three and four are also a good size and are next to the family bathroom.
The well stocked garden is a wonderful space to sit and enjoy the surrounding peace and tranquility with views to the countryside. The 65 acre grounds of Moorhaven are for the exclusive use of the residents and can be accessed from the garden offering an enviable life style with all the facilities Moorhaven has to offer.
There is a brick built work shop detached from the property offering generous space with power, light and window.
Many costly improvements on this home include the replacement of the 35 windows of the property with period style uPVC sash double glazing.
