HouseSimple is pleased to present this 5 bedroom detatched house in Germansweek. The property is right in the middle of the quiet village at the north end of Roadford Lake. Germansweek is approximately 11 miles west of Okehampton, 11 miles east of Launceston and 11 miles South of Holsworthy. 3.5 miles away from Germansweek is Halwill Junction where a local primary school, shops (including newsagents, Post Office, hairdressers and fish and chips) as well as a pub. The village of Germansweek has a church, post box and village hall as well as a farm dairy selling fresh organic milk. Poets Tenement offers access to some of the most spectacular beaches and cliffs on the north coast of Devon and Cornwall within a 40 minute drive.
Dartmoor lies to the south of Okehampton and can be reached by a 20 minute drive from the property. The moor provides beautiful walking, riding and fishing for anyone keen on the outdoors. Okehampton offers a well-regarded secondary school as well as banks, supermarkets, a local museum and a lot of interesting independent shops as well as a range of cafes and restaurants. There is also a sports centre and swimming pool and the town also provides access to a range of other sports clubs including golf, rugby and football. Exeter is about a 45 minute drive away, Plymouth is an hours drive and so is Truro.
Poets Tenement is classic rendered cob and stone Devon house, understood to be over 450 years old in parts. The history of the property is illustrated in many of the wooden and stone character features throughout the property. To the back of the property the gardens are around an acre in size with mature beds, lawns and through an arbour a small orchard of fruit trees with potential for a sizeable set of raised vegetable beds to be re-cultivated. The mature mostly native trees surrounding the gardens offer a high degree of privacy. There is a green house and 2 large sheds as well as a woodstore. The garden has recently had a new sandstone patio added to the rear of the house which overlooks the rest of the gardens. A separate smaller wooden decking area halfway down the garden enjoys late evening sun. Two conrete driiveways offer off road parking for 2 cars, with the possibilty to extend one further to provide additional parking space.
This is a unique and beautiful property offering plenty of living space as well as characterful evidence of its age. The property has been modernised by the current owners and now provides many contemporary conveniences too. Germansweek really is a peaceful "get away from it all" village with very little traffic and access to little used country walks.
