Freelands House is a beautifully maintained house which has been refurbished by the current owners to create a spacious family home. Built approximately 300 years ago the house maintains
many period features including exposed beams and a large granite fireplace, typical to Dartmoor.
Unusually for a property of this age, it is unlisted,
and this has allowed the current owners to install
double glazing throughout.
On the ground floor is the spacious sitting room, with attractive beamed ceiling, Inglenook fireplace and wood burner. This leads through to the lobby, which has a convenient adjoining cloakroom with a stable door leading outside. The well-appointed kitchen/dining room is towards the rear of the property, which leads to the superb garden room with beautiful surrounding views of the garden, and has a striking wood burner as the focal point of the room. There is also a generously-sized pantry next to the kitchen.
On the first floor are three double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom benefits from an ensuite bathroom with rolltop bath and is furnished to an exceptional standard. All of the rooms on the first floor have marvellous views of the surrounding countryside, particularly the bay window of the master bedroom where views of Haytor can be seen in the distance, surrounded by beautiful moorland.
Across the main driveway lies the refurbished
one bedroom cottage. On the first floor is a kitchen and sitting room, currently used as
an office and the bedroom and shower room
upstairs. The cottage would make a great annexe for family members or guests.
Freelands House is approached through double gates to a parking area for several cars, the cottage and the main house garden and entrance. An archway adjoining the house and cottage leads through to a further parking area, garage and gardens. The garage has electricity connected.
To the front of the house is a south-facing garden with tiered lawned areas and pedestrian gate access to the lane. The lawns are surrounded by established trees and flowering shrubs. A further lawned area is found to the east of the house and is accessed from the garden room. To the rear of the property is a large gently sloping area of lawn with paths into the woodland and seating areas. The views are best enjoyed from here.
Freelands House benefits from 3.89 acres of private woodland and a clearing to the rear of the property. There are many walks and bluebell beds. A tower, built by a previous owner of the house in 1900, was previously used as a viewing platform to the sea.
