Excellent 3D floorplan available - just select "Digital Brochure" to explore Harewood House. Substantial detached riverside country house built in 1928 occupying a fabulous position commanding views across its park-like grounds of approximately 3.5 acres to Dartmoor in one direction and rolling countryside in the other. Secluded but not isolated, at the end of a quiet village lane on the outskirts of Peter Tavy, within protected Dartmoor National Park countryside, this property is ideally positioned within 2 miles of Mount Kelly College. This unique riverside property has been meticulously maintained, refurbished and refitted over the years, with substantial family accommodation with excellent potential for a separate annexe, subject to the relevant consents.


Coming in through the front door into the entrance hall, you're immediately impressed by the vaulted ceiling and tiled floor leading to the inner hall, again with vaulted ceiling. Continuing into the magnificent triple aspect drawing room which spans some 30', this impressive room has a splay bay window to one end from where fabulous views across the gardens down to the riverside can be enjoyed. The central feature of this room is a substantial stone fireplace with wooden mantel and stone hearth. Two low steps rise up to the secondary sitting room/music room with display bay to one end and windows overlooking the side gardens.

Accommodation (cont/d)

From the inner hallway, stairs rise to the first floor with a ground floor cloakroom under. A good size study boasts an exposed stone-fronted fireplace which is currently sealed and sliding patio doors to the rear garden. The formal dining room stretches to 24' and is accessed by four semi-circular steps cascading down into the room. Adjacent to the kitchen, this dual aspect room would make a fabulous family room or play room if preferred with its display bay end with double French doors and side windows leading to the rear gardens as well as windows to the river.

Kitchen & Utility

The kitchen/breakfast room has been stylishly refitted creating a luxurious room with great attention to detail. The extensive range of custom made, locally sourced units are fronted by high quality hi-gloss purple and hi-gloss white doors incorporating frosted glass units with Corian work surfaces and splashbacks and integral appliances including 'Wolf' stainless steel oven, 'Miele' coffee machine and microwave, 'Gaggenau 5 ring induction hob and designer hi-gloss extractor hood, all culminating in a stunning kitchen worthy of any glossy lifestyle magazine. The all-important utility room is a good size with a range of work surfaces and space for appliances beneath as well as the 'Worcester' oil-fired boiler.

First Floor

The landing is spacious and runs the full length of the house with a door to the light and bright double aspect master bedroom suite boasting fabulous views across the gardens to the countryside beyond. There is plenty of storage afforded by the extensive range of fitted wardrobes and an arched opening to an en-suite bathroom of lavish proportions complete with jacuzzi bath, tiled shower cubicle, 'his 'n' hers' wash basins, WC and bidet. The 2nd bedroom has 5 windows with a view up the sweeping driveway to the side. Adjacent to the bathroom is a dressing room which could lend itself to conversion to an en-suite for the 2nd bedroom, if preferred. The remaining 3 bedrooms are all of a good size with the 3rd and 4th bedrooms benefitting from built-in wardrobes with sliding mirror fronted doors. Completing the first floor accommodation are two good size bathrooms with white suites.

Gardens & Grounds

The magnificent park-like gardens and grounds extend to just over 3.25 acres with beautifully manicured sweeping gently sloping lawns interspersed with mature trees leading down to the wide river frontage. The gardens include a rear paved courtyard area with covered log store and screened oil tank, sunny sitting area, large decked area with wooden balustrade ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining with the glorious backdrop of distant countryside views. From the deck, steps lead down to the rear of the property where there is a gravelled walkway and further seating area complete with stone wall and flowerbed borders. At the foot of the garden is a substantial pond which attracts a wide variety of wildlife. Whist wandering throughout the gardens you can enjoy fantastic views of the countryside to the Tors of Dartmoor and the village church spire.


The property benefits from a good size double garage with electric up and over door as well as a larger secondary garage with an up and over door.

Annexe Potential

Situated above the garage and triangular in shape is a very attractive room with glazed gable ends providing wonderful views up the sweeping driveway to the front and far reaching countryside views to the rear. This room would make an ideal home office and could be converted to annexe accommodation or holiday use (subject to the necessary consents) but is currently used as a gym.


A substantial space with power, light and double entrance doors.
