The property is only 1.5 miles from the busy market town of Hatherleigh which is a conservation area and has an interesting mixture of period properties along its medieval streets, an active community and close proximity to Dartmoor, the A30 and delightful surrounding countryside. The town enjoys a good range of local amenities including a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, local businesses and a community hall. There is also a variety of thriving sporting and leisure activities and popular local primary school. Okehampton is 8.5 miles away and is a thriving market town nestled in the foothills of Dartmoor. It has a number of locally and nationally owned businesses, and an excellent range of shops (including a Waitrose).

Mileages Hatherleigh - 1.5 miles Okehampton - 8.5 miles Bude - 23 miles Exeter - 33 miles The Property - Pangkor House is a beautifully situated period residence believed to be early Victorian with 17th century origins enjoying simply stunning views to Dartmoor and Yes Tor. The main areas of the house are of classic proportions and the annexe being the older ''modern rustic style'. Despite the wealth of character features, the property is not listed. It has been the subject of thoughtful and extensive, yet sympathetic renovation including the addition of a new kitchen and double garage with fine attention to detail throughout by the current vendors to blend modern living whilst still retaining the period features. The accommodation is spacious and versatile and could suit a multitude of uses. At present, it offers four reception rooms with six bedrooms, however with some minor alterations, it could easily be adapted to provide a four bedroom main residence with a separate two bedroom annexe. The property really does make the most of the incredible south facing views on offer and all the major rooms are orientated to take advantage of the amazing Dartmoor panorama with Yes Tor at its centre. The exquisitely landscaped mature gardens only enhance the quality of this superb residence and have been designed as a series of different rooms/spaces and envelop the property beautifully. On the opposite side of the lane is a separate 2 acre paddock that has a derelict cowshed which has the same elevated aspect as the main property benefiting from amazing views of Dartmoor (currently obscured by vegetation/trees within the plot). It is thought that this area has enormous potential for a variety of different uses, subject to any necessary planning permissions. This 2 acre paddock is available by separate negotiation.
