Warren House EPC Band C. Cottage EPC Band G
Warren House is one of Great Torrington’s finest Georgian residences occupying a delightful elevated position with lovely walled gardens providing a high degree of privacy, all within easy reach of the town centre.
In our opinion the property could suit a purchaser looking to have a simply stunning main residence with a separate cottage in the grounds or as business venture either as a B&B or high end holiday investment.
The property was subject to a complete restoration circa 2013/14 which was sympathetically undertaken by the previous owners to create this highly efficient period property with under floor heating, double glazing, beautiful kitchen, and luxurious bathroom and en-suite facilities.
The main front door opens into the entrance hall which gives you access to the main Drawing Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Sitting room with the oak staircase at the end.
The impressive drawing room is dual aspect and has a feature living flame fireplace set in a marble surround. There are two sets of double doors that lead onto the south facing Loggia with panoramic views over the Torridge valley to open countryside. The spacious formal dining room is to the rear of the property and has Cherrywood flooring and a gas log effect stove set into the chimney breast. Off the dining room is a useful studio being triple aspect, this is an ideal space for an artist, or to be used as a home office.
The kitchen / breakfast room is a lovely dual aspect room with French doors onto the Loggia with shutters. The bespoke hand painted kitchen also features polished granite work surfaces with space for American style fridge/ freezer (available by separate negotiation if required), Rangemaster cooker incorporating electric ovens and gas hob, integrated dishwasher and semi-circular larder cupboards.
Across the hall from the kitchen is the sitting room that has a marble fireplace with fitted coal effect gas fire and Cherrywood flooring. To the rear of the sitting room is the laundry room with polished granite work surfaces and space for a washing machine and tumble drier. To the side of this room is a useful Cloakroom W.C. with a pedestal wash basin, tiled walls and floor. Leading through from the laundry room is the boiler room, with the Worcester fired gas boiler for the central heating and domestic hot water, polished granite work surfaces with cupboards beneath, hot water cylinders and UV filter for the separate well water supply.
The oak staircase leads up from the entrance hall to the first floor landing that gives access to the four main bedrooms and the family bathroom. To the side of the staircase is a large window which provides an abundance of natural light. There are four well-proportioned double bedrooms with the majority enjoying lovely countryside views. Bedrooms one and two both have tasteful white en-suite facilities and bedroom 2 also has additional dressing room. Both bedrooms three and four have en-suite cloakrooms toilets and basins.
The luxurious family bathroom is also on this floor and has a centralised free standing cast iron bath with oak trim, stylish shower cubicle, WC, pedestal wash basin, fitted cupboards to one wall and a heated towel rail. Also in the bathroom is a fitted sauna.
The property is approached through double electrically operated gates with portcullis style wrought iron detail above, with a side pedestrian gate. The entrance gates are set in an ornate castellated stone wall. A block paved driveway then leads on past the main house to the separate Cottage and Garage, and there is ample parking and turning space. To the side of the drive there is a raised lawn, interspersed with mature trees including a fine oak, two fig trees and a variety of shrubs.
