Property Description

Additional Information

Well, where do I start? There is so much to say, so please allow me to try and condense it into something easy to read. I always get excited when properties like this come to the market as you really can get carried away imagining the country, get away from it all lifestyle. The phrase "location location location" could never be more apt not least for its stunning far reaching views across lakes and adjoining farmland but also its past, steeped in history (I will come back to that one later).

"Deer park" as the property is known was originally constructed in 1962 and subsequently improved and extended over the years to the home you will find today. This is the first time this lovely home has presented itself to the market since its original build. Deer Park gets its name from the old deer park that was part of the much larger estate of Stevenstone Manor back in the 1800's. This large family home occupying a little over 3000 square feet offers a fantastic amount of versatility with its spacious accommodation allowing for an expanding family or scope for dual occupancy accommodating an elderly relative. Deer Park is currently set up as a five bedroom home with three bedrooms down stairs and two (the master of which) being upstairs with a five piece ensuite bathroom. There are two large reception rooms and a kitchen breakfast room all with French doors leading out onto a South facing sun terrace, a lovely place to sit out with a glass of your favourite tipple whilst enjoying the fresh air. The house could benefit from some re-decoration and upgrading but that allows you to really make this super home your own.

The property is set in approximately 2.5 acres of grounds and comes with well-manicured lawns several sheds and a pole barn. The whole plot is south facing, some parts being more elevated than others allowing for a different perspective of those lovely views as you move around. For those of you that don?t know the area or the history surrounding it please allow me to embellish. Stevenstone Manor in its latter guise was built in 1868 in a French / Italian style and was a grand estate house with 27 bedrooms set in several hundreds of acres before its demise in the early part of the 21st century. There are records existing that a manor home has existed on this site dating back to 1309. What?s left of the manor can still be found in the grounds of Deer Park and is a fascinating insight into yesteryear. The old Deer Park itself was over a 100 acres and incorporated several fishing lakes, still visible today. This is the perfect opportunity for you to be your own lord or lady of the manor with purchasing this fantastic family home located in the glorious North Devon countryside.

Please also note that the ruins and stone terraced walls to the East and South of the ruins are Grade II listed.
