The Old Reservoir, Fluder Hill, Kingskerswell


For Sale

"The Old Reservoir" is an exceptional and individual property offering far-reaching 360-degree views of the beautiful south Devon countryside. This unique detached residence was originally designed using the structure of an old reservoir. It has now been extended to create spacious reception areas on the upper level and further bedrooms on the lower ground floor. The house is set in approximately 0.68 acres of land at the top of Fluder Hill, offering stunning panoramic views from Dartmoor National Park to the fringes of Torbay. Despite its tranquil and secluded setting, the property remains conveniently accessible to local amenities, schools, and transport links, including the A380 and mainline railway station at Newton Abbot.

As you step through the front door, you are greeted by a welcoming hallway that leads you into the heart of the home: an open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area. The kitchen is both stylish and contemporary, featuring ample storage and modern equipment, including a built-in oven, microwave, and coffee machine. An island unit loosely divides the space, which currently serves as a snug dining area.

The triple-aspect room extends to a large terrace, perfect for entertaining and dining while taking in the breathtaking views. Adjacent to this space, the spacious sitting room features a beautiful brick fireplace with a wood lintel and is dual-aspect, offering even more access to another terrace with panoramic views. Additionally, this level includes a utility room, study, and a W/C. Connecting the floors is a sunroom that provides access to the garden. Descending to the first floor, you'll find the bedroom accommodations. To the left are two bedrooms, each with en suite facilities and patio access; one with a bathroom and shower over bath, the other with a shower room and dressing area. To the right are three additional bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Access to the driveway and a triple carport is gained from the door on this level ensuring ample parking and convenience. Externally, The Old Reservoir offers a wealth of amenities for outdoor enjoyment. A swimming pool with stunning countryside views, a substantial lawn with a picturesque pond, a patio, and two terraces—all with incredible views—make this property a true oasis.
