A SPACIOUS detached family home with 4 BEDROOMS and a purpose built ANNEX situated close to amenities and moorland in a plot of approximately .25 ACRE.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A spacious detached family home with a purpose built annex, situated a short walk from open moorland and the village amenities.

Built, we understand, in the early 1900s in the traditional manner and later extended to provide a versatile, light and comfortable family home with a one bedroom annex. The property is situated in the popular Dartmoor village of Dousland with the beautiful scenery of Burrator Reservoir and Dartmoor just a short walk away. The gardens are a particular feature of the property with the plot totalling approximately quarter of an acre, with the rear garden benefiting from a westerly aspect. The annex was added in 1995 and is self-contained and offers ideal living space for a relative or gives the option to generate an income from holiday lets or tenants. The home has been recently renovated in parts with a beautiful new kitchen/dining room and family bathroom.

The accommodation comprises hallway, sitting room, sun room, cloakroom, utility room, kitchen/dining room, master bedroom suite, two further bedrooms and two bathrooms. The annex comprises hallway, kitchen, lounge, bedroom and bathroom.
