The place:
Abbotskerswell: village (good food pub, shop, café, church) midway between the south-eastern edge of Dartmoor at Ashburton and seaside resorts at Torquay, Paignton (zoo, steam railway), Brixham; also Totnes (attractive old town on the Dart, river cruises), all 6 miles. Golf, 1 mile. Newton Abbot (large town), 2. Nat. Trust castles at Compton (3 miles) and Berry Pomeroy (6).

The property:  
... in Abbotskerswell, in a peaceful spot on the edge of the village with rolling fields and woodland beyond, a large, south-facing, detached, family home. Two acres of enclosed garden (mostly grass - sloping in parts, big trees, good planting, gazebo with table/chairs/barbecue) surround it, with a choice of terraces and well-positioned seating to enjoy sun throughout the day. At the top of the garden (care needed with young children), a play fort with slide/ladder and small swing (for toddlers).   

Inside, extremely comfortable and well-equipped, own home feel; plenty of space with good-sized rooms, smart fabrics/furnishings, lots of pictures. Prettily furnished living room with woodburner and TV/Sky/DVD, and dining room with big oak table and grandfather clock, both rooms with oak floors (rugs), beams and French windows to large paved terrace (tables/chairs) and the garden. Lovely heart-of-home kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas-fired Aga, electric cooker) with granite worktops, central island (larder fridge, wine fridge, breakfast bar for 2), and, at one end, breakfast area (table/chairs) with double doors to snug/study/play room with comfy seating, TV/DVD, toys and desk. Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, sink) with back door to cobbled courtyard and steps up to garden. Downstairs loo (washbasin). 

Upstairs (stairgates), four bedrooms – the master double (6’ bed) with en suite shower-room (suite, power-shower) and arch to dressing/cot area; a pretty double (5’ bed) with en suite shower-room (suite); a twin, and a room with 3’ bunk beds. Smart family bathroom (suite with roll-top bath plus hand shower).   

Outside steps up from the terrace and courtyard to garden and part-covered dog run.  

Single folding bed available by arrangement (for use in dressing/cot area or downstairs snug). Pets permitted in part-covered dog run, kitchen and utility room only. Damages Deposit £250. A lovely family home, brilliantly positioned for coast, moors and exploring further afield
