**SOLD BY HOWARD DOUGLAS** Edgemoor is an imposing detached family home understood to date from around 1880 with nicely balanced accommodation and generously proportioned room sizes.

Whilst the house has been significantly improved and upgraded over the years it retains many original period features such as sash windows (some with working shutters), corniced ceilings and ornate light roses, several fireplace surrounds and the servant bells in the former scullery (no longer connected).

Enhancements to the property include a splendid Orangery reception room leading off the kitchen with wood-burner and three sets of glazed doors opening to a seating terrace overlooking the gardens, and the roof covering of the whole property was renewed in 2021 along with full decoration of the exterior.

There is a two-storey rear wing currently consisting of a large office room with its own entrance and staircase to two bedrooms and a bathroom. This area could easily be adapted to provide a self-contained annexe for an extended family or an Airbnb letting unit.

Outside, a gravelled drive sweeps around to the main entrance and there is a large level lawned garden along with paved entertaining terraces and a useful second access leads from the rear of the house into Ashburton Road.

Edgemoor is perfectly situated for easy level access to Bovey Tracey's excellent shops and amenities. Avenue Road is a private road and there are some distant views from the house over the town towards open countryside and the wooded Wray Valley.

Bovey Tracey lies on the south-eastern corner of Dartmoor with the open moor at Haytor Down just a few minutes' drive away. The A38 at Drumbridges is around two miles away and links the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter and the national motorway network.

From Drumbridge roundabout on the A38 take the A382 towards Bovey Tracey and after 1.2 miles on reaching the first roundabout take the third exit (signposted swimming pool) into Newton Road. The entrance to Avenue Road will be found after half a mile on the left.
