Property Description:

FLETE HOUSE Flete House is set in unspoilt rolling parkland punctuated by magnificent oaks and other centuries old trees, overlooking the beautiful Erme Valley as the tranquil river meanders towards its estuary a couple of miles downstream. From the terraces are breathtaking views towards Ermington and Dartmoor. This splendid house was the family seat of the Mildmays. The earliest parts date back to Elizabethan times. In the 1870s the house was greatly enlarged by Norman Shaw.

Set in 12 acres of landscaped grounds, the house and stables have been impeccably restored and refurbished and now comprise 29 exclusive self-contained serviced apartments. Flete House is designed for a relaxed lifestyle in a stylish and tranquil environment. The apartments may be used as a main home or a 'lock up and leave' home for those who travel, or perhaps have another residence abroad.

The owners of the apartments at Flete House have unlimited access to the stately rooms within the main building including the dining room, drawing room, billiard room and the magnificent and well stocked library with its four "Burne-Jones "stained glass windows. A hard surfaced tennis court, croquet lawn, Italianate and water gardens and grounds extending to some twelve acres are tended for your enjoyment by the skilled ground staff.

Please see our dedicated Flete House brochure for more information on the facilities and lifestyle opportunities available at this unique and historic property.
