A very PRIVATE and SECLUDED high-class residence sat beside the Teign River with uninterrupted WATER/countryside VIEWS and circa 11 ACRES. Over 5100 SQ FT of accommodation including ANNEXE, business suite and PLANNING PERMISSION for a detached lodge. Walking distance to SUPERB village AMENITIES.
Tides Reach was architecturally designed and built with local quarry stone in 1996 by the current owner. Being set at the end of a private driveway, the discrete location offers a great deal of privacy and peace and quiet. The overall appearance is one of a ‘Beverly Hills’ style with the feeling of elegance and grandeur, while maintaining modesty and simplicity in design. All principal rooms have plentiful floor to ceiling glass windows and doors bringing the superb rolling lawns and water views in. With the long, deep external overhangs of the eaves on the south side of the property, the area offers an extensive veranda that is perfect for alfresco dining whilst shading from the summer sun or staying dry if a rain shower moves in. The views from the veranda, across the lawns, over the Estuary and onto rolling countryside beyond are simply breath-taking.
The property is currently set out as a four-bedroom family home with an east wing offering a self-contained one-bedroom apartment, and the west wing as a commercial business suite with three rooms and a bathroom. One could keep the layout as it as it is or simply open up both adjoining wings to have one substantial residence. The current owner has, in recent years, obtained planning permission (TDC - 20/01624/HOU and 21/01455/VAR) to erect a detached one bedroom annexe within the grounds, with matching stone façade and far reaching views, for ancillary purposes.
Once you step into the entrance hall you are immediately wowed by the size, the sleek ceramic floor tiles and bifurcated staircase leading up to the galleried landing above. The ground floor accommodation comprises of an impressive sitting room with an eye-catching iron works open fireplace by Dominique Lambert and a large array of floor to ceiling windows and doors overlooking the rear lawn and Estuary.
The formal dining room also has the full width windows and doors overlooking the garden and Estuary too. The kitchen is well designed with plenty of kitchen cupboards, a breakfast bar, a Britannia range with double oven, 7 ring hob and inset fryer and integrated dishwasher. The breakfast area is a less formal dining area and like all the other rooms that face south, enjoys the outlook over the garden and Estuary. Moving towards the east wing, there is study, utility room, larder, cloakroom and gardeners WC. The attached annexe is also accessed from here but also has its own entrance door and inner hallway. The apartment offers an open plan kitchen/sitting room, bedroom and bathroom, along with its own section of garden overlooking the main grounds and Estuary.
Across the entrance hallway, leading into the west wing, is a large study and access into the commercial business suite comprising of a reception area, two treatment rooms and a cloakroom.
Heading up the grand central staircase, you will be greeted by the beautiful galleried landing which invites a large amount of light through the windows. A perfect space to display classic artwork or sit quietly with a book. The principal bedroom is one of grandeur with its triple aspect overlooking the grounds and Estuary, three dressing rooms and spacious en suite. The three remaining bedrooms all have views over the Estuary and en suite bathrooms. Storage cupboards are a plenty upstairs and there is a sizeable airing cupboard and loft space.
Approached through a set of double gates, Tides Reach offers a substantial gravelled driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles and a grand pillared open entrance porch. The formal gardens are well maintained and offer a mix of formal lawns stretching down to the Estuary, paved terraces and an area of woodland. Many established trees and shrubs line the borders and to the west side of the property is an extensive and established vegetable patch.
