A substantial Victorian family home with self-contained annexe set in approximately one acre of grounds
Down Park House is an elegant Victorian home set in just under an acre of grounds on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. Built by the former Mayor of Plymouth for his own occupation it is typical of its period and features beautiful high ceilings and large windows which maximise the views over the garden and the surrounding countryside. The front door leads through to a spacious entrance hall with four reception rooms on the ground floor. The sitting room with open fireplaces and large bay window is a lovely, cosy room while the drawing room which is open plan to the dining room with adjoining, south facing sun room with French doors to the terrace and overlooking the gardens, benefits from a number of period features including decorative cornices and recessed arches. Again, the large bay window creates a wonderful feeling of space and light. The well equipped kitchen / breakfast room is integrated with a number of appliances and there is also a gas fired Aga, walk-in larder cupboard and utility / boot room. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor and a former games room with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, offering potential to create additional living space (subject to any necessary planning consents). From the inner hall, stairs rise to the first floor offering a stunning, dual aspect principal bedroom which enjoys far reaching views across the moor as well as a dressing room and en suite bathroom. There is a further en suite guest bedroom on this floor as well as two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Stairs rise from the first floor rear landing to the second floor which comprises 4 further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a kitchen. This floor can be accessed externally via steps to the balcony, meaning that the whole second floor and first floor guest bedroom could be a self- contained annexe.
Outside, the property is approached via a private shared driveway with electronic gates providing access to a tree lined driveway leading to ample parking as well as a triple garage. The well-established garden is largely laid to lawn with paved seating areas, an ornamental pond and a garden shed.
