An expansive, modern yet characterful FAMILY HOME, built in 1989 and offered for sale for the first time since the current owners bought the property off plan. SPACIOUS ACCOMMODATION with 5 BEDROOMS and 4 RECEPTIONS. Outside there is a DOUBLE GARAGE with large parking area and beautiful SOUTH FACING GARDENS with a private SUN PATIO. PLANNING CONSENT for a new dwelling in part of the grounds.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION This substantial house is situated in an enviable position along a quiet residential road within the sought after West Devon village of Crapstone, which is popular for its proximity to Roborough Down, the nearby village of Yelverton, the town of Tavistock and the city of Plymouth. The edge of the Dartmoor National Park is just a few hundred yards away, providing unlimited opportunities for walking, riding, cycling and exploring, all on the doorstep. For all day to day amenities, Yelverton is just 1.5 miles away, the pharmacy, whilst the village also provides a GP surgery, Texaco fuel station, post office and veterinary surgery, as well as a selection of eateries and a popular Free House, The Rock Inn. For the sports enthusiast, there are golf, cricket, tennis and bowling clubs. The thriving market town of Tavistock, 6 miles to the north, offers extensive further facilities, including the sought after private and independent school, Mount Kelly. Plymouth, some 10 miles to the south, offers the added attraction of its coastal access and the Mayflower Marina, whilst Derriford Hospital is just 7 miles away on the northern fringe of the city. A mainline rail service runs from Plymouth to London, with the A38 providing road links to the M5 at Exeter.

An expansive, modern yet characterful family home, built in 1989 and offered for sale for the first time since the current owners bought the property off plan. Built of cavity masonry beneath a natural slate roof, with an attractive tiled façade, the house offers over 3,200 sq.ft. of bright and spacious accommodation. Elements of distinction are present internally, such as timber sash windows throughout, an open fireplace, a bespoke Treyone kitchen and fitted furniture, coved ceilings and parquet flooring. Outside there is a good size parking and turning area in front of the double garage, whilst at the rear and side of the house are beautiful south facing gardens with a private sun patio.



Adding further possibilities for a purchaser, the current owners have gained planning consent to build a new dwelling in part of the grounds of Bay Tree House by sacrificing some of the garden space and demolishing and re-siting part of the existing structure. This will no doubt appeal to self build enthusiasts, those seeking options for two family occupancy on the side, or those with a commercial outlook.

ACCOMMODATION Reference made to any fixture, fittings, appliances or any of the building services does not imply that they are in working order or have been tested by us. Purchasers should establish the suitability and working condition of these items and services themselves.



The accommodation is clearly identified on the floor plan overleaf, being accessed on the ground floor through a canopied entrance porch with moulded corbels into a large reception hallway, which has parquet flooring and from where there are doors to the principal reception rooms, the kitchen and a ground floor cloakroom. A deep cloaks and boots cupboard is located adjacent to the entrance door. The sitting room, to one side of the hall, is a large, dual aspect room featuring, at its centre, an open, grated fireplace on a slate hearth. Patio doors lead out to the garden and there are two sash windows to the front aspect, whilst a custom fitted TV and shelving unit stands next to the fire.



Opposite the sitting room is the dining room again, with custom fitted shelving and sash windows - with a further snug sitting room with patio doors, which would make an excellent hobbies or play room, found en-route to the kitchen. The Treyone kitchen is in superb condition, having granite work surfaces and including an integrated fridge/freezer and an integral dishwasher beneath the Butler sink. An electric Aga oven is provided for cooking, with a Neff induction hob adjacent as a backup, plus an integral triple function oven, grill and microwave with plate warmer below. A fitted TV and DVD player is fitted to the overhead cupboards.



Beyond the kitchen is the stunning garden room, of masonry build and with tiled flooring, skylights within a vaulted ceiling and patio doors to the garden. An adjacent inner hall leads to the walk-in pantry, utility room, rear boot room, boiler cupboard and the double garage. The garage has an electric roller- shutter door, work benches, plus the usual power and lighting connections.



An elegant staircase from the reception hall rises to the first floor landing, which gives access to each of the bedrooms and family bathroom. The spacious master bedroom is fitted with His 'n Hers wardrobes and benefits from an attractive en-suite with both a bath and shower cubicle. The second and third bedrooms also have fitted wardrobes and sash windows overlooking the gardens. The fourth bedroom, a potential guest suite, enjoys the use of an en-suite shower room, with the fifth bedroom currently used as a study, complete with shelving and storage. The family bathroom again comes with a modern 4 piece suite.

OUTSIDE A 5 bar timber gate and sweeping drive leads to the parking area and garage. The main garden is situated to the rear of the house, being mostly laid to lawn and with established, planted beds and borders filled with mature trees and shrubs. A slate chipped pathway to one side leads to a further area of secret garden, containing a timber tool shed. Off the house's western flank, outside of the garden room, is a delightful sun patio, perfect for sitting out in privacy during the warm summer evenings.

SERVICES Mains water (metered), mains electricity, mains gas and mains drainage are all connected to the house. There is gas fired central heating throughout.
