DESCRIPTION

The property is situated in the heart of this sought after village on the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park within level walking distance to all village amenities and the popular recreational area of Roborough Down. 

The first of four homes built in 1985 by Kest Homes in this central village location, it is well placed on its site and is set off the village street behind a Devon hedge, whilst to the rear is an enchanting part walled south-west facing garden.

Deceptive in appearance, the property extends to nearly 1600sqft and has an impressive 30’+ living space. A bay-fronted dining room at the front of the house is connected by double folding glazed internal doors into the living room from which patio doors lead to the broad rear terrace and garden. Also of note is the 17’ kitchen breakfast room again garden access via patio doors. The bedrooms are all of good proportion and the main benefits from built in furniture. Further bedrooms/bathrooms or a master suite could be provided by extending out over the ground floor breakfast; utility rooms and integral garage – subject to planning.

The current owner has spent considerable time and resources in designing and creating the garden. Worthy noting is the broad, deep terrace running along the rear of the house with steps leading to a central lawn with wide, well stocked boarders incorporating a water feature;  summerhouse; greenhouse and  pergola  all of which benefits from the sunny south –westerly aspect and a high degree of privacy.
