Ermecot House is a wonderful, Grade II listed Georgian residence standing in approximately 10 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds, encompassed by glorious South Hams countryside. In recent years the property has undergone a complete and most sympathetic restoration, using only the finest materials and craftsmen. Ermecot House exudes the opulence and associated hallmarks of its time, yet careful consideration to modern day conveniences ensures for a most comfortable and up to date home. Built in the 1820s, as part of the Carew Pole Estate, the property is particularly light and classically laid out, with elegant, well-proportioned rooms decorated with intricate coving, impressive fireplaces and window shutters to some. There are a number of modern day enhancements, including the addition of a stunning bespoke orangery, which provides a
fabulous, multi-functional, year-round room. There is also a state of the art alarm, television and sound system installed. From the elegant reception hall there are two bay window reception rooms, a cloakroom, together with 2 well-appointed kitchens, the main kitchen leading into the spectacular orangery. Doors from the inner hall lead to two enclosed courtyards, while others provide access to a further cloakroom, laundry room and bathroom. The wine store may be accessed from one of the courtyards. The master bedroom suite and 4 other bedrooms and bathroom are located on the first floor, while a very useful guest suite (bedroom six), with disability facilities, is located on the ground floor.
