We understand that Lower Eastcott dates back to the 16th century, with the main residences all built of cob and stone beneath slate roofs. Each has been sympathetically restored and now combines many original features with the refinements of 21st Century living.
In terms of location the property enjoys the best of all worlds, being surrounded by its own land, set within a peaceful valley in the mid-Devon countryside. The property enjoys a high degree of privacy, approached by a long private driveway. Okehampton, approximately 8 miles away, has a comprehensive range of shopping facilities including a Waitrose, medical centre, swimming pool and golf course. Primary schooling is available in Northlew (1mile), with secondary schooling in Okehampton or there are private schools within easy driving distance at Shebbear and Tavistock. Dartmoor is just south of the town, providing excellent opportunities for walking and riding.
Lower Eastcott is approached over a private drive to a gravelled parking and turning area to the front of the house and garage. To the rear of the house is a secluded garden, mainly laid to lawn, with paved seating areas, established trees and flowering shrubs. Elsewhere there is a garden area with a polytunnel and fruit cage.
A five bar gate from the road provides separate access to the courtyard, two cottages and a further large area of the lawn with some mature apple trees. The cottages are cleverly arranged to ensure they do not impact on the enjoyment of living in the main house.
