Beverley House is a substantial period property which provides over 5,000 sq. ft. of living space, including the annexe. Believed to have been built in 1905, the house has an interesting history, having reputedly previously been used as a hotel, a centre for evacuees during World War II and as a retreat for members of the clergy. The accommodation is flexible and full of charm, arranged over three floors, with south westerly views towards the beautiful Dartmoor landscape.
A porch leads to a welcoming entrance hall, from where the ground floor reception rooms are accessed. There is an office with a decorative fireplace and fitted cabinets, as well as a spacious sitting room/dining room with two bay windows providing lovely views, a gas fireplace and exposed floorboards. To the rear of house is a large kitchen/breakfast room featuring a gas Mercury range-style cooker and a wood burner within an exposed granite wall and chimney breast. There are two sets of French doors, one leading to a walled courtyard garden, and the other to the lawned back garden. Particularly good views of the beautiful Dartmoor landscape can be enjoyed from the kitchen. Completing the ground floor is a good-size utility room and a cloakroom.
There are four spacious double bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom, as well as bedroom two, enjoys excellent views and also has an en suite bathroom with a separate shower. A family bathroom services the other three bedrooms. From bedroom two, a door leads through to a mezzanine level above the kitchen, currently used as a snug, with yet more fabulous views and a skylight providing ample natural light.
On the second floor is a very spacious family room, providing another flexible living space which would be suitable for a variety of uses. There is also a kitchenette with an electric oven, as well as two more bedrooms with views and a bathroom. A large loft above provides ample storage space.
Attached to the main house but with a separate entrance, the annexe provides excellent potential for an income via letting, or it could be used as accommodation for additional family members. There is a good-size kitchen/breakfast room with a range of fitted units, an electric oven, microwave, gas hob and extractor fan. Adjacent, there is a large sitting room/dining room with French doors leading outside, as well as a separate utility room, bathroom and WC. In total there are three spacious double bedrooms, one on the ground floor, and the other two on the first floor.
Beverley House is approached via a gated driveway which provides ample space to park in front of the house and annexe. There are two garages, one attached to the annexe and the other to the main house. To the back of the house is an attractive south westerly facing walled garden. Mainly laid to lawn, the gardens are bordered by a variety of established shrubs and trees. Magnificent views towards Dartmoor can be appreciated from the entirety of the rear garden.
