Sought-after location in the pretty village of Cornworthy
Charming period features
Hall House offers plenty of period charm and accommodation spread across three floors. The interior is well-presented and includes original features throughout such as exposed timber beams and period fireplaces.
The reception hall leads through into the spacious kitchen/breakfast room, featuring solid wood units and integrated appliances. A few steps lead down into the family room which features an attractive stone fireplace with a traditional wood-burning stove. The double-aspect library, to the rear of the house, has an impressive inglenook fireplace and a skylight that provides plenty of natural light. There is also a good-sized sitting room with an additional entrance to the property. A convenient laundry room, accessed from the reception hall, completes the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a dressing room/bedroom 5, two of which benefit from en suite shower rooms, while the remaining two are serviced by a family bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath. The spacious master bedroom is located on the second floor, and features exposed timber beams and large Velux windows allowing in plenty of natural light. This bedroom also benefits from a large en suite bathroom with a roll top bath. There is also a study/bedroom 6, again with a skylight providing lots of natural light, located on the second floor.
Located south-east of Totnes, in the village of Cornworthy on the River Dart, Hall House is situated in a sought-after area within easy reach of South Devon’s main hubs. Dartmoor National Park and the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are also found nearby.
Totnes is less than 6 miles away, while the centre of Dartmouth is just over 8 miles to the south east from the property by road. Both towns provide a good range of amenities, shops and restaurants. The delightful waterfront town of Dartmouth also hosts the famous annual Dartmouth Music Festival. The mainline station at Totnes provides direct rail links to Plymouth in just 26 minutes, and Exeter in half an hour. London Paddington can also be reached on a direct train from Totnes.
The surrounding area provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. There are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling or watersports, and there is also excellent sailing on the River Dart and the South Devon Coastline.
There is a wide range of well-regarded educational facilities in the area including the Torquay Grammar Schools and The Grove School, rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
Hall House is an attractive period building with its original old shop windows and two entrance doors. At the rear of the property there is a multi-level cottage garden featuring established planting. A patio area outside of the kitchen, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining, leads up along a paved path past a lawned area. On the elevated level there is also another good-sized area of lawn, along with a summer house with glazed doors and a second patio area. The garage is currently being used as a storage room but there is potential for this to be reinstated.
