SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION This fine property is situated in a level, private, south-facing plot, on the outskirts of the popular and pretty Devon village of Winkleigh.

Winkleigh is a very pleasant village with a thriving community and amenities including: a post office and stores, along with a small number of independent shops, doctors surgery, veterinary surgery, places of worship, primary school, village hall and community centre. There are two popular public houses within the village. There are a wide range of social clubs and activities for those wishing to partake in recreational and leisure activities. The north coasts of both Devon and Cornwall are easily accessible from Winkleigh thus making it the ideal place for those wishing to enjoy convenient access to coastal activities.

A charming and well presented detached bungalow dating back to the post World War II era. The property was occupied by the Commanding Officer of Winkleigh Airfield, which played a pivotal role in World War II.

The accommodation is well presented and has been extensively refurbished throughout by the current owners and briefly comprises entrance hall; a large open plan sitting room/ dining room and kitchen, with open fire and LPG Rangemaster stove. Adjoining this is a lovely garden room, where one can sit and enjoy the outlook over the rear garden. There are two double bedrooms, with the master bedroom having an ensuite shower room and the guest bedroom having a WC Room. The property has full double glazing and newly installed LPG central heating in late January 2020.

To the outside, the property is accessed via a gated driveway, providing off-road parking for numerous vehicles, which leads to a garage with adjoining woodstore and a carport. To the rear is a delightful level, private, south-facing garden which is well maintained and predominantly laid to lawn, with well stocked flowerbed borders. There is a productive vegetable garden with greenhouse and various store sheds. The gardens and plot total approximately 1/3 acre.
