SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An elegant property with a wealth of character, adjacent to a green just a stone's throw from open moorland and the village post office.

Crapstone is a small village on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park with a village shop and post office. It is approximately one mile from the village of Yelverton, nine miles from the city of Plymouth and five miles from Tavistock.

A well presented mid-terrace property built, we understand, in 1901, with a wealth of original features. The property is constructed in the traditional manner under a slate tiled roof and also benefits from gas fired central heating and partial double glazing. A particular feature of this property are its surroundings of open moorland and the village shop/post office is just a short walk away. The garden has a variety of mature shrubs and plants and extends to a summerhouse with access onto a rear lane where there is potential for off-road parking.

The accommodation comprises entrance porch, reception hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, three first floor bedrooms, bathroom, separate WC, second floor bedroom and a bathroom. (The bathroom on the second floor was originally a fifth bedroom.)
