Ashburton sits on the edge of the stunning Dartmoor National Park and a short distance from the River Dart, making it a hot spot for outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking, climbing and riding. It is also located conveniently just off the A38 Devon Expressway, providing a direct link to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter as well as the M5, so is a perfect location for commuters.

The bustling market town of Newton Abbot is approximately 8 miles from Ashburton, and has a wide range of high street shops, several supermarkets, leisure facilities, hospital and A&E department, as well as a mainline railway station reaching London Paddington in around 2.5 hours.

Being offered to the market for the first time in 35 years, Waye House is a late Regency Grade II listed Country House sitting within approximately an acre plot dating back to 1825. Although not completely detached, this elegant property offers a great deal of privacy and forms very much the major portion of this beautiful building

On entering you are greeted with an impressive reception room, with Oak pillars to two arches. The ornate matching ceiling roses and Oak fire surround with multi-fuel wood burner really give this room a feeling of grandeur. The French doors that lead out to the Verandah flood the room with light.

At the rear of the property is the drawing room, this South facing room has an impressive full width/height bay window with French doors leading out to the Verandah. Currently used as a music room there is an original Ashburton marble fireplace with tiled hearth and stripped wooden floorboards.

There is space for a washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and integrated electric oven with separate induction hob, along with a Stanley oil fired range which supplies the heating and hot water to a portion of the house. The dining area has a feature wood burning stove with space for an 8 seater dining table.

From the kitchen you can access the small rear courtyard, along with the storage/potting room. There is a downstairs WC. On the ground floor there is also a further storage room/study.
