Combe Hill was built in circa 1850 and is not listed. The current owners have painstakingly renovated and refurbished the house throughout, whilst maintaining its charm and character. The proportions and layout are typical of its era, with high ceilings, large sash windows and an excellent flow between the principal rooms. The quality and attention to detail in the work that has been done is immediately noticeable on entrance to the house, where a large hallway with hand-laid Victorian tiles leads to the reception rooms, which are predominantly south facing with superb far reaching views over the grounds to the rolling countryside of Dartmoor beyond.

The drawing room is incredibly light thanks to the French doors leading to the gardens, and there is a connecting door to the family room, also with wonderful views over the grounds. These are spacious and welcoming rooms, ideal for entertaining or simply relaxing with family. The new wooden flooring and new sand blasted column radiators that feature throughout the house combine perfectly with the decorative cornicing and attractive fireplaces to create an elegant and contemporary feel.

The brand new kitchen / breakfast room, linked to the family room via double doors, features sophisticated bespoke designed units, built in Neff ovens and an electric aga that has been renovated and re-enamelled. From the kitchen the dining room and garden room are accessed, via the rear hall. The views across the garden are superb and the dining room features a wood burner.

The impressive proportions continue to the first floor where a large landing gives access to the well-appointed bedroom accommodation. New carpets have been fitted throughout and all the bathrooms have been replaced, including new sanitary ware, tiling, décor and flooring. The bathrooms are presented to an exceptional standard, and the bedrooms all have superb views. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, one of which could be used as a self-contained apartment if required due to the adjoining open plan kitchenette and sitting room and secondary staircase providing independent access from the ground floor. On the second floor are a further two bedrooms with a shower room, all presented to the same exacting standards as the rest of the house.

Combe Hill is complemented by an excellent selection of outbuildings. To the rear of the house are two double garages with electric doors and two stable boxes with a tack area and concrete floors, currently used as storage and workshops. Two further stores house the oil tank and provide a gardener's store with Belfast sink. To the side of the house is a large gravelled parking and turning area with a gate leading to the wide gravel driveway running along the attractive front façade of the house, at the end of which is a further attractive garage building with space for three cars and with roll back doors and concrete floors. There is also a separate studio which would make a fantastic home office, gym, artist's studio or yoga studio.

The house is surrounded by its own land, providing both privacy and stunning views. The main area of lawn slopes gently away from the front of the house towards the boundaries which are of mature hedges and majestic trees. Steps lead up to a pathway that winds through an area of woodland to additional pastureland that extends to around 2.8 acres. In total the land extends to about 7.5 acres.

Combe Hill sits in a peaceful and elevated position on the edge of Lustleigh, within Dartmoor National Park with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. It is arguably one of the finest locations on Dartmoor thanks to the beautiful rolling countryside and easy access to amenities. The area is renowned for its spectacular scenery with granite tors, heather clad moorland and wooded valleys bisected by streams and rivers. There are numerous opportunities for walking, riding, cycling and fishing and there are 18 hole golf courses at Bovey Castle and Stover.

Lustleigh is a picturesque village consisting mainly of period houses and quintessential Devon cottages clustered around the village square with a popular inn, tea shop, shop / post office, church and cricket ground. To the north and south are the towns of Moretonhampstead and Bovey Tracey, with a wider selection of local amenities and the Cathedral city of Exeter is about 20 miles away.

There are several highly regarded schools in the area including Exeter School, The Maynard, Stover in Newton Abbot and Mount Kelly in Tavistock. Combe Hill provides the perfect balance of rural tranquillity with genuine accessibility thanks to the excellent transport links nearby. The A38 Devon Expressway has dual carriageway links to Plymouth and the M5 motorway at Exeter. From Exeter, there is a regular direct train service to London Paddington taking from 2 hours 3 minutes. Exeter Airport has an increasing number of domestic and
international flights.
