Level central village location

Guide of 275,000 Freehold


A charming ‘Arts and Crafts influence’ 1950s semi-detached dwelling, located just a few minute’s level walk from the shops and amenities of Yelverton village centre on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. The property sits in a delightful and secluded, south-west facing garden with a separate single garage and additional off-road parking for up to three vehicles.

Given its central location the interior space are remarkably private although might benefit from some updating. The principal access is via a vestibule which leads into the full depth hallway with Oak hand railed staircase and white spindles leading to the sleeping accommodation. Two under-stairs cupboard provide generous storage. To the right is a large, almost 16 foot sitting room with a nine foot bay that overlooks the garden, with fireplace and gas fire. Straight on is a 17 foot double-aspect kitchen/breakfast room with a range of modern fitted units. This leads into rear lobby which offers access to a small exterior courtyard at one end and at the other, a ‘utility space’ with adjacent WC and back-door garden access. Planning permission has been granted (Dartmoor National Park Authority; application 0258/18) to replace this end of the house with a two-storied addition to provide a further reception room downstairs and upstairs a third bedroom (with en suite).

The existing upstairs accommodation is of two double bedrooms, both double-aspect, the master (with sink) at the front of the property and bedroom two (with walk in storage) at the rear adjacent to a WC/ shower room – originally a bathroom. Mirroring the hallway the landing offers what is believed to be sufficient space to return a staircase to the large loft space 25’8 x 20’6 approx. and with its good head height has potential for further accommodation, subject to planning permission.

The enchanting garden is level and bounded to the rear and roadside by a Devon bank with connecting vernacular stone wall, enclosing the garden which has a depth of around 65’. A rectangular lawn is surrounded by flower borders and some mature rhododendron and camellias. Part of the already obtained planning permission provides for replacement of the current single garage (with power and water supply) with a double garage and upstairs office.
