Fir Mount House is a delightful home with a welcoming and comfortable feel, enjoying stunning
water and rural views from its principal rooms and gardens.

Currently a Wood Fired Cookery School with Bed and Breakfast facilities, this four storey detached
Victorian property has many period features and offers flexible accommodation including up to
six bedrooms, two reception rooms, three shower rooms, sun room, study, spacious garden room
and summer terrace, plus basement room with its own access. This property truly offers untold

Enjoying delightful views of the surrounding countryside with the River Dart beyond, the garden
has many secluded seating areas, an outdoor kitchen/ dining area, covered decks, balconies and
patios from which to relax and enjoy the views.

The front door opens into a lovely entrance hall with original tiled floor and a useful sunroom
and study off. Stairs lead up to the upper and lower floors, but for now, walk down the other
set of steps into the delightful country kitchen. With wooden topped units, oak wooden
floors and large walk in bay, the kitchen is a warm and inviting space.

Pop the kettle on and enjoy a brew as you gaze out at the vibrant green scenery from the window down to the river, or make use of natural light as you savour a croissant and coffee at the breakfast table.

From the kitchen, a door continues into the garden room, a space that is currently used by the cooking school for demonstrations and teaching with plenty of windows looking over the woods and doors out to the gardens. This area has lots of potential for a future business?

Heading back into the lower ground hallway with original tiled floor and doors either end opening to the larder, utility room and newly renovated fully tiled shower room with large walk in shower, WC and wash hand basin.
Take the stairs back up to the ground floor and into the sitting room. The perfect spot to hole up with a good book and a hot drink and dreamily watch the flames dancing in the marble surround fire. You could incorporate some lovely pieces of furniture here, or set up a writing desk near the window. The room has fabulous high ceilings with original coving and decorative ceiling rose, and a bay window looks out over the water and surrounding woodland. With a door to a small covered veranda, this is the ideal room in which to entertain guests.

Also on this floor is another guest bedroom, this spacious, high ceiling room could also be a separate reception room or formal dining room. A large bay window with window seat makes this a very light and airy room.
Arriving on the first-floor landing, take the steps to the bright and spacious master bedroom. With a neutral decoration scheme, it's easy to transform the master into the boudoir of your dreams. There's space for cupboards and drawers to keep your haven clutter-free, as well as space for armchair to complement the walk in bay, a lovely spot for your morning cuppa with views down to the River Dart. En-suite comprising bath with shower over, pedestal wash hand basin, WC. and window to front.

Bedroom two is big enough for a double and would make a lovely guest room, with yet more pretty views over the woods. Also on this floor is a spacious shower room with double size walk-in tiled shower WC. and two wash hand basins.

Stairs lead you up to the top floor where two delightful loft rooms await. These cute rooms also take advantage of the surrounding scenery and would be perfect as guest or kid's room.

There are a multitude of seating areas from which to enjoy the water or woodland views. Whether seated on the deck looking down over the River Dart or under the canvas enjoying a BBQ there is much to savour in the outdoors surrounding this lovely home. Off the kitchen level there is a large deck, shaded by a canvas sail, which provides a perfect area to entertain and enjoy the splendid views. Or enter the gardens from the garden room and meander the paths to the covered BBQ area or walk around to the garden terraces and up to the deck with views over the River Dart. The property also has the benefit of mature woodland with areas for fruit and vegetable gardens. There are several gates providing access from the gardens onto the road
above and below.

Fir Mount House also has plenty of on road parking directly outside the property.
The basement floor accessed from the garden includes an entrance hall, shower room and further space which could potentially be used as studio or holiday let.

This large period property offers an ideal family home in the idyllic setting of a popular English coastal village or a home away from home by the water.
