Location – Moorhaven Village, South Devon
The Water Tower sits just within the Dartmoor National Park in Moorhaven Village. Moorhaven Village was created in the 1990’s when the former Victorian hospital buildings were transformed into beautiful and immaculate homes. The Water Tower is the most distinctive building on the estate. Despite commanding a central position it is very private and peaceful.
On site there are wonderful communal gardens to be enjoyed.. tennis courts, a boule pitch and croquet lawn.
There are two parking spaces adjacent to the front entrance.
