Ashridge occupies a choice position surrounded by picturesque rolling countryside yet just half a mile easy level walk though the lanes to the village centre.

Ipplepen is one of the most desirable South Devon villages with an active local community and facilities including highly regarded primary school, post office and well stocked village shop, health centre, two churches, village hall, public house and recreational/sporting fields. There is a golf course at nearby Dainton.

The historic town of Totnes and the market town of Newton Abbot, each around four miles, provide a wider range of shops and amenities including secondary schools and main line railway stations.

Dartmoor, which can be clearly seen from the property, is around a twenty minute drive as is the South Devon coast at Torbay.

Ashridge is a magnificent detached family home built in 1998 for the current owner, a building contractor, to a very high standard and exacting specification.

The house is positioned to take in the stunning views over neighbouring fields and towards Dartmoor on the horizon. The accommodation has been specifically designed to gain the very best of these views from the principal rooms, which are located on the upper level.

The outside of the building is constructed with most attractive and distinctive local stone, with the rear elevation rendered, and a ‘Trevillet’ natural slate roof.

Notable features include:

● Lounge with multi-fuel burner, Connemara marble tiled flooring and sun balcony.
● Family/cinema room on the ground floor.
● Engineered American cherry floors in the reception hall, first floor hall and dining room.
● American cherry interior door frames with Art Deco natural veneer doors. Mahogany staircase.
● Integrated vacuum cleaning system and intruder alarm.
● Oil fired central heating - new boiler February 2018. Single air conditioner unit to first floor. Solar hot water heating backup and a 3.25kw PV solar panel system.
● Hardwood double glazed windows with polished granite internal sills and natural slate external sills.
● Approximately 229m.sq (2464sq.ft) internal floor area and half an acre plot size, as measured on pro-map.

There is potential, subject to the usual planning consents, for a single storey of around 52m.sq (559sq.ft) on top of the garage building.

The sale of Ashridge provides a rare opportunity to purchase a highly individual family home in a very convenient edge of village location and the property is being sold with no onward chain.
