The self-sufficient property has no near neighbours in sight
Looking to escape the hustle and bustle? An idyllic off-grid home with a solar power system, vegetable

garden and its very own spring is now for sale in the depths of Dartmoor, Devon.
Described by agents as a "fantastic" purchase opportunity, Autumn Wood is a unique moorland home that dates back to 1890 and has no near neighbours in sight. Built in London from timber construction, the Victorian eco home is generated by solar power and has a private water supply from the natural spring on a gravity-fed system.
Step inside the property and you’ll find four bedrooms, two bathrooms (one has a gorgeous sunken bath), two reception rooms, brick fireplaces, and a good-sized kitchen complete with an unmissable bright red AGA. It’s a real offbeat hideaway with a neat balance of charm and rural cosiness.
Steeped in history, the bungalow is located on the edge of a Saxon settlement and previously formed part of the Luxmoore Estate. It really is a rare opportunity to snap up a slice of something special.
Sitting in around one third of an acre, the gardens wrap around the entire property like a warm hug. Breathtaking views can be seen from every angle, with direct access onto the open moor (leave your walking boots by the back door for easy reach). Within the garden, new owners will also get to enjoy established trees and shrubs, plus a pretty impressive Peter Rabbit-style vegetable plot with all you need to go self-sufficient.
It might be on the market for £600,000, but Autumn Wood is a complete package that contains everything you need to embrace a slower way of life. Tempted to put down your offer? This property is for sale with Godfrey Short and Squire.
