A private drive in the ownership of Huish leads through granite gate posts from Mill Street and leads to an iron gate into Huish itself. The drive has a right of passage for a neighbouring house called Eastholme but this branches onto its own drive before the gate to Huish. Once through the gate the driveway and apron to the front of Huish is brick paved and stretches across the front of the house turning to gravel in the parking and turning area in front of the studio, library and double garage. The gardens are sited mostly to the front of the house and face south south west. In between the house and studio is a paved patio which is sheltered with a view to the garden at the front but a fabulous view of the Upper Teign valley through a toughened glass screen at the rear. Across the driveway and apron is a granite boundary wall with steps set into it which leads up to the lawned garden which has many beautiful mature trees and rhododendrons and a large lawned area with a double line of mixed hedgerows separating the garden from the former tennis court and the orchard. There is a superb view to Meldon Hill from the former tennis court. The whole garden is private and bounded by mature trees and hedgerows but it has a southerly aspect and enjoys plenty of sunshine. At the side of the house is a tiled parking bay by the kitchen door for parking to unload shopping, or alternatively as a parking area for the lower ground floor flat. To this side and below is a grassed garden area with a view over the Teign valley. There is also access to the woodland through a five bar gate. The woodland is stocked with a wide variety of deciduous trees in about a one and a half acre plot and in all the grounds extend to about three acres.


Mains gas, water and electricity. Drainage is to a private septic tank.
