Dartmoor Village

Yelverton village - Short walk to village amenities

398,500 Freehold


Built in 1980 by Wimpey Homes in what was at that time their most prestigious countrywide development, this executive detached family home has been extensively updated, sitting in a maturing landscaped south-facing rear garden amidst its enviable village location.

True to its original form and one of the largest styles on the development - extending to over 160m2 - its design basis is that of the ‘four room’ format to both ground and first floor. There is scope for enlargement by incorporating the rear of the tandem length garage into further living space subject to planning permission.

The property is noteworthy for its crafted Oak kitchen/breakfast room overlooking and with access to the garden patio as is the dining room via patio doors whilst glazed internal double doors lead into the sitting room which boasts a fireplace with gas fire which we understand could facilitate a wood burning stove. To the right of the front door is a triple aspect study/snug which captures a glimpse of the Dartmoor view best appreciated from the master bedroom.

Indeed the bedside view from the master bedroom with its en-suite shower room looks out over the Walkham Valley to Sharpitor; Great Mis Tor & North Hessary tor on Dartmoor.

All the bedrooms are doubles with the fourth currently being utilised as a dressing room. Refurbishment of the family bathroom; en-suite shower room along with the ground floor cloakroom have brought the property firmly up to date with direct feed showers and towel rails.

At right angles to the front door a garden gate leads you into a delightful mature garden with designated areas for all the family. Passing espaliered apple trees a lawn sweeps around the side and rear incorporating a seating area in which to capture the view behind which is a 14’ greenhouse. Directly to the rear of the house is a large patio for young children with a back door into the 30’ garage and a second access point around the back of the garage leading to the front driveway with parking for four vehicles. 


Services – Mains water; drainage; electricity & gas. Gas fired central heating from a ‘Worcester’ wall mounted boiler in kit/b’fast room. Gas fire in sitting room. uPVC double glazing. Direct feed showers. External front and back light points. Rear garden tap.
