An impressive and elegant, detached Victorian home set on the edge of Dartmoor National Park
Having been recently refurbished throughout, Down Park House is a superb example of modern day living perfectly married with Victorian architecture offering generous proportions, high ceilings and large windows
Much care having been taken to retain many period features including decorative cornices, recessed arches and feature fireplaces and the finished result is simply exquisite. The versatile accommodation is arranged over three floors and can either be used as one main home or can be separated to provide main accommodation and a self-contained, three bedroom annexe.
The welcoming entrance leads to four generous and elegant reception rooms. There is a fabulous sitting room with open fire and large bay window as well as an exquisite drawing room with adjoining dining room and sun room with French doors to the terrace and veranda overlooking the garden and sunken hot tub. There is a cosy snug with hidden door to the fabulous games room / bar. The beautifully appointed kitchen / breakfast room is integrated with a range of appliances including a gas range and the central breakfast island, walk-in pantry and utility / boot room ensure convenient modern living.
Stairs rise from the entrance hall to the to the first floor galleried landing which offers a stunning principal bedroom enjoying far reaching views across Dartmoor and which also benefits from a dressing area and modern en suite bathroom with walk-in shower and freestanding bath. There is a further en suite guest bedroom on this floor as well as two double bedrooms and a family bathroom, again with walk-in shower and freestanding bath. The second floor, which can be separated to create a self-contained annexe, also accessed externally via steps to the balcony, offers a lovely sitting room, a well-equipped kitchen, a further three double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
