Elmfield House is a Victorian villa built in 1868 located in the Devon market town of Hatherleigh, and constructed of colour-washed rendered elevations under a slate roof.
The property has retained many of its period features including open fireplaces and sash windows in the reception rooms, which include the drawing room, dining room and a large study with built-in bookshelves. The breakfast room abuts the kitchen which is a very large space with fitted wooden units and access to the front door. The attic is accessed by the hallway, and the cellars are accessed from the breakfast room.
Upstairs, the first floor houses the master bedroom suite, which offers good views of Dartmoor, while four further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom, a shower room and a separate WC. There is also a large box room on the first floor.
Outside, a terraced area wraps around the house, while the lawns are surrounded by well-stocked flower and shrub beds. The secondary garden has two greenhouses, a potting shed, garden store and a large summerhouse – as well as a rainwater harvesting system.
Elmfield House is located in Church Lane, near Hatherleigh Parish Church and just a short distance from the centre of town. Hatherleigh is steeped in history and still holds a market every Tuesday. Amenities include local shops, a post office, primary school and a number of churches and pubs. Okehampton is just over seven miles to the south and has further amenities including a Waitrose.
The guide price is £595,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01392 229 405 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
