An immaculately presented substantial Edwardian family home in the heart of Dartmoor National Park where the East and West River Darts meet. Surrounded by established gardens and grounds of 9.22 acres including two cottages, paddocks, woodland, a bank of the River Dart with fishing rights and direct access to the moor and garaging for 10 vehicles.

Construction of Brimptsmead Estate started in 1893 when permission was granted to build a hunting lodge and summer home. The building was completed in 1906 and leased from the then Prince of Wales. The present owners were given the rare opportunity to purchase the freehold from the current Prince of Wales, His Royal Highness Prince Charles, and have set about completely renovating the estate properties for modern living. Works undertaken include a new 26,000 clay tile roof, 120 hand crafted leaded light mullion windows, polished granite floors and bespoke oak panelling to the principal rooms.

The approach to Brimptsmead Estate is via a discreet gate leading to a long private driveway that sweeps up to the front of the house. Immediately noticeable are the outstanding far reaching views across the moor, which open up to the south on the approach to the house. The house is not listed and is of an impressive arts and crafts architectural style with immaculate stonework and beautiful stone mullion windows that give an abundance of natural light and allow for superb views from the principal rooms.

The proportions are typical of its era, with high ceilings, generous entertaining space and a south facing position ensuring plenty of light. The house is immaculately presented throughout, having undergone an extensive refurbishment of the highest quality. The newly installed oak panelling and polished granite floors create a superb first impression and from the entrance hall the principal reception rooms are accessed.

The two three bedroom cottages are both are immaculately presented, matching the high standard specifications of the main house. These are ideal as ancillary accommodation to the main house, or for income generation from letting.

The setting of Brimptsmead Estate is magical, combining privacy with accessibility as well as direct access to the moor and outstanding views. Immediately in front of the house is a terrace, perfect for alfresco dining with elevated views across the open moorland. The grounds are mature and established, with an abundance of impressive specimen trees protecting the privacy of the house.

To the south and east of the house is an area of ancient woodland, with a pathway leading down to the river, where Brimptsmead owns a section of the river bank and fishing rights for two rods.

Behind the house is a cleverly designed building built into the side of the hill allowing for a large garage on the lower level and a fabulous party barn on the upper level. From the party barn French doors lead to an eleven meter balcony. Beyond the party barn to the north is a paddock gently sloping up to the northernmost boundary. A gate from this paddock gives direct access to the moor, over which there is right to roam.

Brimptsmead Estate is nestled in a private position in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, where the East and West River Darts Meet and surrounded by some of the UK's most beautiful and unspoilt countryside. The area is renowned for its spectacular scenery, granite tours, heather clad
moorland and wooded valleys and there are far reaching views across the moor from the property as well as access to the many lifestyle benefits on offer.
