Wolston House, Landscove, Devon

Wolston House is an elegant 18th century Grade II Listed Georgian property, wonderfully situated overlooking Woolston Green in the heart of the popular village of Landscove. Having been in the same family for over 75 years all the original character and features have been retained, although some updating may be required by a new owner.

Entering through the elegant porch and original front door, the hall is a large and welcoming introduction to this glorious property, with high ornate ceilings and flagstone floor (currently carpeted) it has wonderful proportions and at the far end is a sweeping staircase. To the right are two doors into the formal drawing room with a large fireplace with striking black Ashburton marble surround and open hearth. There is a large sash window with working original shutters which overlooks the green, making this a lovely bright room.

At the far end of the hallway is a useful utility room housing the boiler and various appliances and which has a back door out to the garden. Also off the hall is the breakfast room with large windows and French windows that lead onto the sun terrace and large south facing back garden. This lovely cosy room has good natural light, and an original fireplace which has been fitted with a woodburner for those chillier evenings. This leads through into the kitchen which has a two ring/double oven Aga and Neff hob, with fitted floor and wall units and it has lovely views over the garden and there is a side door with access out to the driveway.

Off the kitchen is the formal dining room which has a wonderful dual aspect with a sash window overlooking the green and a window to the side of the property. Again, this elegant room has high ceilings and a fireplace which is currently unused. From here a concealed door leads to a second servants staircase which leads up to the first floor.

On the first floor this gracious home has three bedrooms overlooking the village green which have sash windows and benefit from the morning sun. The main bedroom has an en suite with large walk-in shower, and the second double bedroom an original fireplace. There is also a very cosy characterful single which could make a perfect home office, and the third double overlooks the rear garden and has far-reaching countryside views. In addition, there is a large bright family bathroom with fireplace.

The attic room with a trap door, is accessed via an enclosed staircase from the first-floor landing. It has been used as a further bedroom plus games room. With a pretty window to the rear this room is large and has good ceiling heights and masses of potential.To the back of the main house is the one-bedroom single storey annex which was originally built as a granny annex and then more recently a holiday let. It has a well fitted kitchen with utility room with Velux, large double bedroom, large living room with an electric fire and dual aspect, which enjoys French windows out to the garden.

At the front of the property is a small walled garden with a lawn, flower beds to either side and a gravelled path leading to the pillared porch. The gardens wrap around the house and to the left are hidden pathways which go around the side of the house, passed an old conservatory to a play area and then lead on to the large lawn at the back. With a mix of fruit trees, an old vine, various shrubs and bushes plus a large Gunnera this is a glorious garden of approx. 1/3 of an acre and is bounded by a mix of privet, leylandii and bamboo hedges. There is also a shed plus an open shed/workshop /potting area also useful for wood storage.
