Hoo Meavy House is an elegant Georgian house, believed to have been built in the 1850s, situated in a peaceful position surrounded by its gardens of approximately 2.28 acres. The current owners have sympathetically updated the property to create a wonderful family home which has retained many original period features including large sash windows which provide plenty of natural light, shutters, window seats, ornate cornicing and high ceilings. Notably, for a property of its age, Hoo Meavy House is not Listed.
There are five reception rooms on the ground floor. The front door, with a half-moon window above, opens into an impressive reception hall with detailed cornicing, a tiled floor and a wood burner. Adjacent to this is a large sitting room with an open fireplace and a large bay window; and there is also a very spacious drawing room featuring a window seat, attractive fitted storage within the alcoves and a door which leads out to the gardens and veranda. The kitchen/dining room is at the heart of the ground floor; well-appointed with a range of bespoke fitted units, an oil fired AGA, a kitchen island and a double Butler sink. There is ample room for a large dining table. An adjacent utility room and a pantry, both with flagstone floors, provide further space for utilities. There is also a well-proportioned study featuring a wood burner within an attractive marble fire surround, a window seat and a large striking fitted bookcase on one wall. Completing the ground floor is an office, boot room, store and two cloakrooms.
Upstairs, there are five double bedrooms, most of which have wonderful views of the surrounding Dartmoor landscape. The master bedroom has a window seat and a stylish en suite bathroom with his and hers twin basins, a claw foot bath and electric underfloor heating. A very spacious landing gives access to the remaining bedrooms, all of which are generous in size, bedroom five currently used as a dressing room. A family bathroom services these bedrooms.
There is a very large attic on the second floor which provides ample storage space.
Attached to the main house but with a separate entrance, Hoo Meavy House has a one bedroom annexe which has successfully been used as Airbnb accommodation to provide an income. The current owners have recently redecorated the annexe to a high standard and installed a contemporary kitchenette with an electric hob, extractor fan and integrated fridge. There is a double bedroom and a stylish bathroom.
Hoo Meavy House has a private drive which splits at the entrance, leading either directly to the back of the house, or sweeping around the front of the property, passing through the highly attractive gardens to the far side of the house. At the rear is an area which provides ample parking space for numerous vehicles. There is also a workshop which could potentially be used as a small garage.
Hoo Meavy House is surrounded by its own land measuring approximately 2.28 acres in total and enjoys wonderful views from the gardens as well as total privacy. The gardens are beautifully presented and maintained, featuring a very wide variety of trees and all seasons planting including eucalyptus, Japanese acer, silver birch and cherry trees. To the front of the house is an elegant veranda, draped in an established wisteria, with a large area of lawn and a number of formal sculpted plants. To the side of the house is a heated swimming pool, 1.5 metres deep throughout, with a raised terrace which provides a very sheltered and private space for entertaining and al fresco dining.
The remaining land comprises small areas of woodland and further extensive areas of lawn, including a level croquet lawn, surrounded by high beech hedging and mature trees. There is a large chicken run as well as a vegetable garden and storage sheds.
