Well Park is a magnificent example of Victorian architecture dating back to 1870, although it remains unlisted. The property has large rooms and high ceilings giving lots of space and light.
Two large reception rooms on the ground floor overlook the gardens and feature period fireplaces, while the kitchen is relatively small (a modern family might want to relocate the kitchen to the dining room at the rear of the house for more of a kitchen/breakfast room).
Upstairs the first floor has four bedrooms, most of which have outstanding views out across the village, moorland and local farmland while the second floor has four further bedrooms which have even more impressive views. The accommodation on the first and second floors is extremely flexible.

Outside the gardens and grounds come to around two acres and have been well maintained: to the front of the house is an old tennis court which is now a croquet lawn and there are a number of mature trees providing privacy. Above the gardens is a paddock which is currently rented out to a local farmer but would suit an equestrian buyer – the local area has some excellent riding.
Well Park is situated in the village of Lustleigh in the Dartmoor National Park. The village is very picturesque and has a good range of local amenities including the village inn, tearoom, dairy with postal counter and a church dating from the 13th century. Exeter is only 15 miles away and the A38 is just under five miles.
The guide price is £975,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01392 848 842 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
