Hunters Reach has an enviable setting off a minor country lane on the edge of Holne, on the southern slopes of Dartmoor National Park.

The village is a five minute walk and has a shop/tea room meeting hall and Church. The nearby village of Scorriton also has a pub and there is superb walking and riding literally on the doorstep, with the open moor close by.

The town of Ashburton, with its excellent range of shops and amenities, is an easy 15 minute car journey and is where the A38 can be accessed, providing a quick link to the cities of Exeter and Plymouth.

Hunters Reach is believed to have been built in the 1930s and has evolved over the years to become a spacious family-sized home. Many rooms take in wonderful views of picturesque countryside and moorland hillsides. As well as double glazing and LPG central heating there are PV panels benefitting from the feed-in tariff.

Outside, private well stocked gardens provide much colour in the spring and early summer months and there is a stock-proofed paddock which can be accessed directly from the garden or via Michelcombe Lane with a hardcore vehicular entrance. There is a stable at the top end of the garden and a sheep shelter in the paddock.The main gated drive to the property provides secure parking for several vehicles together with a block-built double garage.

From the Pear Tree exit on the A38 Expressway at Ashburton (by the Shell Petrol Filling Station) take the road signposted for Holne and Poundsgate. After 2.3 miles turn left for Holne and after a further 1.2 miles take a left signposted for Holne village centre. At the junction go straight ahead (The Church House Inn and Church will be on your right). Follow this road and after taking the sharp right bend, turn left towards Michelcombe. Hunters Reach is the first property on the right.
