An attractive, private and spacious former farmhouse located in the centre of the village but with a secluded feel; accessed from a long tree lined drive, and surrounded by its own private gardens and grounds.
Spreyton House is an attractive period home believed to date back to the 1600’s, although much of the front part of the house was remodelled by George Lambert MP in the early 1900’s to provide an imposing, and sizeable home with versatile accommodation.
The house offers a large and welcoming entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, sitting room and study, a spacious utility room, and lovely kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired aga, a boot room, several store rooms and a large wine store, with adjoining safe room on the ground floor. On the first floor are six bedrooms, the master having both a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, and bedroom three also benefitting from an en-suite shower room. A further two bathrooms service the rest of the house. Also on the first floor is a small flat with kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms, and a shower room.
Outside the property is approached via a tree lined driveway giving a high degree of privacy, leading down to the front of the house with ample parking for several cars. Pillared gates lead into a courtyard providing further parking, and a large double garage with adjoining saddle/store room.
The gardens are a real feature of the property, well stocked with a range of mature shrubs and ancient trees, manicured lawns and pathways leading off to interesting areas to explore. There is a full-sized tennis court, screened off from the rest of the garden.
The property backs onto agricultural buildings which are not included in the tenancy and form part of the farm.
lies to the north of Dartmoor National Park and is famous for its connection to the tale of Old Uncle Tom Cobley. The village has a well-regarded local pub, a small primary school, modern village hall, community shop and monthly farmers market. The village is really convenient for the A30 linking to Okehampton and Cornwall to the west, and Exeter and the M5 to the East.
