About Angus Deuchar
We're a family of 5. I'm a former photographer, now landlord and my wife is a business coach. The children are all in full time education.
Why Angus Deuchar chose Sydenham Damerel
We wanted to find somewhere in the countryside to escape the rat race, and had always loved Devon having rented many houses there over the years. We viewed scores of potential properties over several years. The house needed to be close to Dartmoor (but not on it), big enough to rattle around in and include a big garden with secluded spots which we could explore or play in for hours on end. When eventually we found Hartwell we knew straight away that it was the right place!
What makes this House unique
We love the fact that the house has not been overly modernised. Much of the furniture is antique (or older style) plus there's a Rayburn and even an old valve radio. We did try to resist the internet for a while, but eventually succumbed; some things are difficult to live without! That said, it can still easily be switched off and hidden if you want to avoid it... We feel the house is in the perfect location to stay put or to explore both Devon and Cornwall and all they have to offer. We're nicely secluded, but not cut off; outside the village, but only 12 minute drive into Tavistock if you need to stock up. Now with the pool adding a new layer of luxury, we cant get enough of the place! We hope that if you come to stay at Hartwell, you will love it as much as we do.
