Guide 237,500 Freehold


Sitting in both an enviable location (200 yards walk onto Whitchurch Down) and in a south-westerly aspect, boasting fine views to the Crowndale valley, this characterful 1930’s semi-detached bungalow boasts many other fine attributes of its era.


The property was built by the reputable Doidge builders of Tavistock of blockwork cavity walls with spar-dashed rendering under a pitched natural slate roof. Maintained to a good standard, the bungalow has been updated with uPVC facias; guttering; back door and windows yet the front door and adjoining panels retain the original leaded stained-glass detailing. The arched recessed canopy leads into a gracious hallway and like the principal rooms it retains the original picture rails and architraves. There would be potential to access the first floor with some minor alteration, adding a new staircase to replace the current pull-down ladder. The first floor offers tremendous scope for creating a main bedroom with en-suite facility which would capture a stunning view out over the Crowndale valley from a higher perspective than that currently seen from the sitting room and main bedroom.


On the south-west elevation with a fine view via a squared bay-window is the sitting room with attractive gas fire and surround. Enjoying the same aspect is the adjacent master bedroom with built-in wardrobes. Next-door looking onto the rear garden is bedroom two, also with built-in wardrobes plus a sink. The triple-aspect kitchen/dining room similarly looks onto the rear garden with outside access through exterior lobby with WC via a glazed door. Fitted units include AEG appliances; there is also a full-height kitchen store. Across from Bedroom two is a family bathroom with over-bath shower.


OUTSIDE: On the westerly elevation a gravelled driveway leads in from the close to the garage and provides parking for two vehicles. Wrought iron pedestrian gates lead into gardens at front and rear. Three steps down, the front garden in a sunny aspect includes natural stone seating area and retaining walls with a good sized level lawn and planting beds of some quality evergreens including camellias. The rear garden is gently sloping and mainly gravelled with a 6'0" × 6'0" pitched roof block-built potting shed.


GARAGE:  4.72m x 2.66m (15’ 6” x 8’ 2”) of block construction under a pitched roof with personal door to side and electronically operated up and over door to front. Light & power supply.


SERVICES:  Mains electricity; drainage; water & gas.  Gas central heating(new ‘Worcester’ boiler installed in Feb 2016) as well as a gas fire in the sitting room. uPVC windows and back door. Cavity wall and loft insulation.
