Our home

Our house is a unique architect designed property, built in 2011, on the edge of Dartmoor National Park - you can walk for hours from it without having to cross a single road. It has been designed to the highest specification, with custom made oak floors and joinery and fabulously comfortable new furniture. There are views of fields, moors or woods from all the rooms. We have eight acres of meadow and woodland - you can walk straight on to Dartmoor from our woods.

We also have a flat in the heart of Kensington, London, just five minutes walk from Notting Hill. I will be adding photographs of this when we have finished building work this summer,

Property features

Who we are

  1. An architect and journalist, we have four children aged between 20 and 29 (yes, they still like to come on holiday with us!)and normally vacation in France, Italy, Spain or Greece but are open to new ideas. Although we travel with the children in summer, it will sometimes just be the two of us. We love the countryside and seaside in summer but are also interested in shorter trips to European cities.
    For summer 2012 our preference is for somewhere very near the sea (but not too touristy) or in the countryside with a swimming pool.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is on a hill, up quite a narrow lane, near the pretty and peaceful village of Lustleigh. Dartmoor is literally on your doorstep and the seaside is about half an hour away. There are some excellent pub/restaurants in the nearly villages of North Bovey, Chagford and Moretonhampstead. Cornwall is just an hour's drive away; There are lots of interesting cities and towns nearby - Exeter, Totnes, Ashburton - but above all this is a place for people who love walking,
