Approached along a tree-lined driveway, flanked by a large paddock to the right, Cator Brake is as welcoming as it is impressive. The immaculate interiors provide well-proportioned spaces designed to bring the outside in.

The large open plan kitchen/dining room is a highlight. Flooded with natural light, this double-aspect room seamlessly flows onto the south-facing terrace via two sets of triple-glazed French windows. The kitchen itself features Leicht units, Neolith ceramic work surfaces and integrated Neff appliances. 

The kitchen/dining room opens to a spacious sitting room, with a full width, full height glazed wall, framing Dartmoor in all its glory. A comfortable snug, utility room and shower-room, completes the ground floor accommodation.

The upstairs landing, arranged as another reception room, provides more wow factor, with another fully glazed wall with double doors. There are also glazed doors overlooking the moor from the principal bedroom, alongside an ensuite shower room and dressing room. Two further bedrooms share a modern family bathroom.

Outside, woodland to the west of Cator Brake provides wonderful privacy, while the professionally-designed gardens have been laid out to enrich the special location. 

A substantial double garage with a one bedroom annex above, sits paces from the main house, and is well set-up for multi-generational living or additional income. Further elements of the property include a detached stable block, workshop and chicken coup.
