SITUATION

Ugborough is a unique village with a strong community, set around a square offering 2 local public houses, primary school and church that dates back to 1121. Ugborough is just minutes from the A38 providing easy access to both the cities of Plymouth and Exeter.

Dartmoor National Park and the stunning Devon coastline are all within easy reach and there is secondary school educational facilities provided a short distance away at Ivybridge.

DESCRIPTION

With a renovated Georgian frontage, this unique home is being offered to the market for the first time since being sold by the National Trust.

The house sits in historic grounds of over 5 acres and has undergone significant improvements over recent years and benefits from an integral 2-bed annexe.

ACCOMMODATION

Having approached the house up a sweeping driveway, one enters via a grand portico into the reception hall, with the 3 main reception rooms flooded with natural light. The large well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room benefits from folding doors onto the courtyard, affording a touch of Provence in the South Hams. The 1st floor provides an interconnecting door to the annexe, master bedroom with stunning views over the front garden, restored fireplace and en-suite bathroom. The other bedrooms on this floor offer a conversion opportunity if required, as the current vendors were planning to knock down a connecting stud wall to make a large master suite, including bath and dressing rooms. Also offering a shower room, the classic Georgian staircase leads up from this floor to a 2nd with 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

THE ANNEXE: 2 bedroom/en-suite accessed from the main house or from the side. There is permission in place to covert the garaging into a 2 bedroom cottage (further details available).

OUTSIDE AND OUTBUIDLINGS

A standout feature are the beautiful gardens, reputedly designed by Thomas Beckford and boasting many specimen trees and shrubs. A walled garden provides a sheltered and sun-soaked environment for vegetable beds, fruit trees and a greenhouse with hot beds. A maize of paved paths provides stunning walks through formal planting, woodland and extensive lawns. One of the prettiest paths sits alongside the Lutterburn, a landscaped brook with twenty two miniature waterfalls, two islands and tranquil ponds creating many places of interest, including a former Victorian bathing pool. To the front there is a formal croquet lawn running down to a sunken garden of ferns, hostas and wood anemones. The driveway, bordered by lawns and hedging, passes the front aspect and runs up to integral double garaging and a forecourt with a range of useful stone outbuildings. Access is afforded from here to the courtyard, leading to utility and kitchen.
