Property Description

A home in Moreleigh offers you the best of both worlds - a peaceful setting to relax and unwind, while only a short drive from the South Hams historic market towns, seaside villages and beautiful beaches.

Step through the front door and see the space open up in this light and spacious entrance hall.

Straight ahead is the handy ground floor home office with lovely views down over the garden and countryside beyond. Tucked away to the right of the office is a downstairs WC, with toilet and wash basin. From the entrance hall take the door to the left through into the sumptuously sized sitting room. Snuggle up with the family in front of the stone fireplace, and settle down in front of a family movie, or simply admire the views through the French doors over the large composite decking with glass balustrading to the rolling countryside beyond.

family living, this culinary centrepiece was once two rooms, now opened up to create a comprehensive kitchen and dining area.

Across from the family bathroom, step into bedroom two, a large double bedroom, with built in wardrobes and lovely views over the fields opposite. Turning left, return to the galleried landing before taking the door on the left into the fourth bedroom with views over the rolling Devon countryside to the rear and built in cupboards.
