Inglewood is an impressive detached Victorian house, set amidst beautifully maintained mature gardens and timbered grounds of approximately 3 acres. Located on the edge of Dartmoor in an enviable, secluded position, it benefits from delightful views over the Meavy Valley to Sheeps Tor. This fine house stands on an elevated site and retains much of the character and charm of the period, with well-proportioned rooms, ornate fireplaces, panelled walls and doors, as well as high ceilings with cornices and central roses. Built in 1887, it was designed to take full advantage of its setting and would be ideal for entertaining family or guests. Outdoor walks are a-plenty with Yelverton Golf Club just a short drive away. Within the grounds is a substantial, detached coach house built of stone with cobbled floors which provides garaging, original stables, stores and an extensive first floor, which could prove ideal for conversion to provide ancillary accommodation if required (STPC).


Accommodation

The property is approached along a sweeping driveway with views of the garden, pool and fledgling orchard, leading down to an ample parking area in front of the house before continuing around the house, past the coach house to reconnect with the drive. The imposing front door with butler's bell retains many of its original features and is approached under a canopy of ornate wooden figureheads which give a nod to Inglewood’s original naval past. You are welcomed into the entrance hall with mosaic tiles and composite granite and marble floor which continues into the large cloakroom to one side. This leads through to the generous reception hall with a beautiful, ornate balustraded staircase being an especially striking feature. A decorative fireplace and a pair of leaded panelled doors complete the grandeur of this impressive entrance. From the reception hall further panelled doors open up to a modern conservatory which benefits from the afternoon and evening sunshine whilst providing additional living/entertaining space as this opens out onto the terrace outside.

Ground Floor Cont/d

An inner hallway links the reception hall to the kitchen, utility room and to three sizeable reception rooms, the first of which benefits from a large bay window overlooking the formal gardens with its mature trees and framing the stunning views. An attractive feature of this room is the large sandstone fireplace, with the possibility of an open fire, great for the coldest of winter days. The large dining room beyond is a spectacular space in which to entertain, perfect for a sizeable dining table. The ornate fireplace provides a focal point, if the fantastic views outside are not enough! The smallest of the reception rooms, again with a fireplace, also benefits from delightful views of the garden and could be utilised as a home office, library or a secondary living room/playroom for children. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room benefits from the morning sunshine and offers an extensive range of limed pine units with ample worktop space. An attractive feature of the room is the recessed ‘Stanley’ cast iron range with moulded wood surround, ideal for traditional slow cooked meals. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a small hall with side-door access to the terrace outside, the former servants' staircase to the first floor and a nearby utility room with a ‘Belfast’ sink and further ample storage cupboards.

First Floor

From the reception hall the ornate staircase with integral large storage cupboards, rises to the first floor showcasing a large leaded picture window, which bathes the landing and stairs in natural light. To the left is the master suite which comprises a sizeable bedroom with fabulous views and access to the ensuite bathroom as well as the added luxury of a dressing room with built-in wardrobes which provides an opulent feel. The second bedroom is the largest in the house providing a wonderful room for family or guests. The views from these two bedrooms take in the garden, the Devon countryside and the rugged beauty of Dartmoor, all in one mesmerising outlook. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor, each with views, the smaller also having an ensuite shower room. From the landing is the family bathroom.

Second Floor

A further flight of stairs takes you to the second floor where there are three additional double bedrooms, with the largest being a delightfully charming room with ensuite shower room. A large, walk-in loft is accessed from another of these bedrooms and provides plenty of storage.

Summary

In summary, Inglewood provides a most elegant home and a visit to this impressive residence is highly recommended in order to fully appreciate the property's unique appeal.

Outside

Gardens

The gardens of Inglewood are superb and wrap all the way around the property. Expertly manicured and landscaped over the years, the gardens provide a beautiful, peaceful place to sit out and relax. To the front of the property granite steps and a stone chipped path take you down to the croquet lawn which is bounded by mature trees and shrubs providing an array of colour. The gardens extend further into a number of distinctive areas in complete privacy. The original entrance and pathway can still be found where horse-drawn carriages would be driven up to the house and beyond to the coach house.

Gardens Cont/d

Warm summer evenings can be enjoyed sitting out on the lawns, by the pool or on the decked area overlooking the pond. The heated outdoor swimming pool and surrounding patio provide a great place to entertain. The coach house, provides plenty of options for a potential buyer and is currently split into a garage with a roller door, five original stable boxes and former tack room on the ground floor. A flight of stairs then takes you up to a large room in the roof space which is currently utilised for storage but would have originally been a hay and feed store for horses. To one side of the property is 'Drake’s Leat' which passes behind the coach house and beyond this is a sizeable field with separate road access from Drake’s Trail.

Reviews

  • "Definitely the best local agent" Parkers are very knowledgeable about the local area and were definitely the best local agent we saw when viewing various different properties. When we ended up buying our house through them, they were very easy to deal with and Lisa did a brilliant job at keeping us up to date with everything, meaning one less stress to worry about. Thanks to all!"Mrs B, London, Oct 2019
  • "Very happy with the service" I have been very happy with the service I have had from Parker’s. They have found me a very suitable tenant and are always on hand to deal with any problems. Thank you Juliet and Kate."Mrs T (Landlord), March 2020
  • "I'd happily recommend Parkers" Thanks, really pleased to say I'd happily recommend Parkers. Professional, attentive and knowledgeable. Thanks!"Ms P, March 2020
  • "Very helpful, easy to work with and made the move a lot easier" We used Parkers for the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new one and have to say that they were very helpful, easy to work with and made the move a lot easier than I thought. They knew the exact kind of property we were looking for and we weren’t disappointed with what they found us. 5 stars from us."Mr and Mrs F, Cleeve, Feb 2020
  • "Grateful to all the staff" We really appreciate your support through the moving process. The chain started off very smoothly but then became quite challenging. Parkers were pivotal in stabilising the chain and looked out for all parties to ease the moving process. We are particularly grateful to all the staff"SR, Dec 2019
  • "Once again excellent" Having used Parker’s several times over the years, we were pleased to find that the service provided for our recent house sale was once again excellent. Regular contact, updates and chasing issues when necessary helped ease the stress. We would not hesitate to recommend Parker’s and use their services in future."Mr J W, Nailsea, Nov 2019
  • "Very helpful" The whole team at Parkers were very helpful at every stage of the journey that has finally seen Mum moving."Mr W, Nailsea, Sept 2019
  • "We were very happy with your service" We were very happy with your service throughout, sorry for it being such a complex sale (although aren't they always!).You will be getting nothing but praise from us when people ask for estate agents in the area....I've already said to some people whom I've met who want to move to the area to "pop in" and speak to you."Mr B, Backwell, Sept 19
  • "You’ve all been great" Just to say thank you so much for all that you’ve done over the years regarding my property, with rental and now the sale. You’ve all been great and I am very grateful. I wish you all the very best"Mr S, Bristol, Aug 2019
  • "A gem of customer service" Once in a while, in this age of faceless call centres, you come across a gem of customer service. Parker's (at Backwell) were one such organisation. I'd wholeheartedly recommend them to sellers and buyers alike – the team represent the opposite of the poor rap estate agents get."Mr & Mrs G, Backwell
