Newton Cross House

Newton Cross House is the major part of a lovely Georgian country manor, situated in Newton Tracey, Devon. Bursting with character and retaining many original features including solid wood floors, sash windows, and a sweeping staircase, this property is finished to a superb standard of quality, with eclectic furnishings, crystal chandeliers and stylish rooms. The modern kitchen and family room with fireplace open up into a dining room with original French doors onto the garden, creating the perfect place for friends and families getting together over a home cooked meal. The stunning 30’ drawing room features a 65” TV and large picture windows overlooking the garden, as well as a marble fireplace with woodburning stove. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom for your convenience, plus a small boot room and a study hall. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a lovely king size four poster bed, whilst the chaise longue in the large bay window allows you to unwind and enjoy the fabulous views across the valley into the distance. The master bathroom boasts a deep-soaking, claw foot bath tub, his and hers basins, and a huge walk-in marble shower. Also on the first floor are a double bedroom with original French cane bed and a (non-working) feature fireplace, and a second king size bedroom, both sharing a stylish family bathroom with modern freestanding bath and walk-in shower. A utility room on the half-landing completes this floor. Up on the top floor there are a further two charming bedrooms, one with twin beds, served by a second family bathroom with shower and fabulous views. Outside is a spacious front garden, with beautiful, wisteria clad original veranda and a patio where you can relax in the luxurious hot tub and soak up the beautiful atmosphere around you. A lovely outlook across an acre and a half of land is backed by the village cricket field, with countryside beyond.
