SELLERS INSIGHT We started looking for a home together in 2010 which would provide comfortable living for our growing family and dog. We had decided that we would focus on Kingsteignton as it was an area we knew well and geographically it was perfect for both of our jobs at the time. We had identified our perfect location and Golvers Hill Road ticked most of the boxes. That summer we saw a quaint bungalow on a large plot had become available. The property was very run down and although it was not suitable for our needs, we recognised that the plot was perfect in size, would receive sunshine in the main garden all day and would afford the most wonderful views.
Having successfully negotiated to buy the property, we achieved planning permission for a large family home which would suit our needs. Three years later, we had moved into our dream home. The property was designed by a well known architect and he created a light and spacious home for us with an 'open plan' design to our receptions. We wanted to make the most of the fantastic views and many of the rooms afford this with fabulous views to Dartmoor. When we designed the house we specified a curved staircase. We used curved walls to open up the rooms as you walked in. Our children were very young at the time and we wanted a playroom and a family kitchen. One of our first purchases was a trampoline and Steve made the treehouse for the girls and it has seen many sleepovers over the years!
We have finished every detail to the highest standard and since moving in we have re landscaped the garden, making it child friendly and of course making the most of the views. We have found the area to be extremely friendly and somewhere that friends and family have enjoyed coming to. The area is perfect for running and cycling and there are a wide selection of places to walk the dog.
INTRODUCTION 15 Golvers Hill is a truly exquisite detached family home. The property sits within a large plot with sweeping, landscaped gardens to the rear of the house leading the eye towards Dartmoor in the distance.
The current owners recognised the plot's huge potential back in 2010 when they bought Anglebury, a much smaller dwelling and obtained planning permission for a significantly larger house on the site. A substantial family home with adaptable living spaces, light and spacious rooms was designed and built with many of the principal rooms affording fine views to Dartmoor. The house was ready for occupancy in 2013. It offers five bedrooms with rooms divided over the two floors (three to first floor & two to ground floor). Two of the bedrooms have en suite facilities and there is a separate high quality family bathroom suite (all Villeroy & Boch). There are three reception rooms with a living room and dining room interconnected and affording pleasant views as well as direct access to the main garden. There is also a useful study located off the utility room. A sleek and stylish modern kitchen was designed with integrated Siemens Appliances, composite tops and an island feature. A side door leads out to the main garden and paved terrace area suitable for al fresco dining.
The main section of garden is to the rear of the house. It has been imaginatively designed with ease of maintenance in mind with a level terrace with colourful flower borders leading to a large expanse of lawn suitable for families. The stunning views from here really must be seen to be fully appreciated. To the front of the house there is private driveway parking for numerous vehicles and a double garage with electric door.
STEP INSIDE 15 Golvers Hill is an incredibly deceptive property and its appearance from the front belies the size inside. On entering the property you are immediately taken by the grand entrance with its large hallway and sweeping stairs up to the first floor landing. There is an excellent 'flow' to the property with the two main receptions interconnected and access to the garden via patio doors in the living room. A stylish bespoke kitchen was designed with clean lines, composite tops, integrated Siemens appliances and a breakfast bar with a floating solid oak work top. Recessed spotlights and wiring in place for a speaker system in this room as well as the playroom, lounge and dining room. A downstairs WC is conveniently placed next to one of the bedrooms. From the hallway, there is a Utility room which leads into a useful study. Both are situated at the side of the house, with access to the garden and an outside shower. The front of the house enjoys early morning sunshine which moves around to the main garden to the rear. Their are also the most wonderful sunsets throughout the summer months.
The house offers adaptable living with the opportunity to create a self contained area from one of the bedrooms into the garage area should one require. There is also a double bedroom with en suite facilities just off the main entrance hallway. A solid curved staircase winds up to a 'gallery style' landing area with three double bedrooms and a bathroom. All of the bedrooms enjoy wonderful views. The master bedroom offers a bespoke dressing area with fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room, both of exceptional quality. There is also a quality three piece bathroom suite serving the other two bedrooms.
STEP OUTSIDE To the front of the house there is a large brick paved driveway providing parking for numerous cars. This lead to a double garage with an electric remote operated door. There is a raised flower border to the left hand side as you enter the property and pathways to either side of the of the house leading to the main garden.
The rear garden is one of the main features of this wonderful home. Imaginatively designed and with ease of maintenance in mind, there are uninterrupted, breath taking views across to Dartmoor. Directly to the rear of the house is a large, level paved terrace, ideal for outside dining and affording fine views. There is a large expanse of lawned garden extending away from this area with a tree house and colourful flower borders. This is most definitely a family friendly garden affording peace and privacy without being overlooked. There is outside lighting, power points and a water source to the garden.
