An exceptional new-build that has been cleverly designed to maximise the fabulous far-reaching Tamar Estuary views.
The Moorings is a very special family home, completed in 2020 and built to an exceptionally high standard. The house is surrounded by lovely mature gardens and the plot occupies a private and secluded position of about 1 acre on the edge of the popular hamlet of Hewton. The views are quite spectacular with a far-reaching aspect down the Tamar Estuary. The Moorings faces due south and was designed by the acclaimed local architect, Lucy Harman. The house has a nautical feel throughout and all the wood is oak. There is cedar cladding on the south-facing façade and the eastern facade, facing the lane is faced with local stone.The property is protected from the quiet rural lane by solid, double wooden gates. Beside the house is extensive parking, below which is further parking and a double car port and twin single garages. The solid oak, double front doors to the house are particularly impressive and enhance the outstanding first impressions further. Off the stair-cased hallway are the drawing room, study and cloakroom/WC. Beyond is the dining room with a galleried landing above. This gives a wonderful light, bright and spacious feeling and is ideal for entertaining.Concertina doors lead out to the south-facing terrace with fabulous estuary views. Beyond is the open plan kitchen/living room that forms the focal point to the home. Two sets of patio doors (that clip back magnetically) lead out to the south and west facing terraces. All the kitchen appliances are Neff and include three ovens (one is a combi), fridge, dish washer and freezer. Within the central island is an induction hob and an extractor fan.The views out across to the Tamar Estuary are quite outstanding. Behind the kitchen is the utility room and back door, off which are the WC/cloakroom and plant room. The house has an oil-fired boiler with photo-voltaic panels on the roof to heat the water and underfloor heating. The walls are double insulated and double cavity.
