A DETACHED 4 BEDROOM FAMILY HOUSE located in a highly desirable location close to the open moors. The property has a good sized REAR GARDEN with a gated parking area leading to a GARAGE. There is potential to provide a further bedroom in the attic.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A sizeable detached family house located in 'The Crescent' which is a highly desirable location set just down the road from the open moors. The house offers a sunny rear garden which is level and of good size. To the front of the house is a gated parking area which in turn leads to a garage with remote sensor door. The driveway is flanked by a further level front garden with a walled boundary. We understand the property was built in the 1930's and later extended by previous owners creating a side elevation garage, utility, upstairs master bedroom suite and benefits from a converted loft space. The house is in a central location within the village but away from the main thoroughfare making this an ideal property for tranquility, seclusion and security. By car Plymouth City is approximately 20 minutes away while Tavistock is approximately 15 minutes with Yelverton positioned just across the level moorland on the edge of the village signifying the start of Dartmoor National Park.

The house is well presented with south-west facing living areas and French doors out to the good size garden. Internally warmed by an original feature fireplace in the sitting room, gas fired central heating and PVCu double glazed windows and doors. There is also potential to create a bedroom in the loft due an already existing attic room with Velux windows, which is currently entered by a pull down ladder. Crapstone is within the catchment of good schools and offers one of the finest post office/local stores in the area with a supermarket, several shops, petrol station, bus stops and doctors surgery only 5 minutes down the road in Yelverton.

The accommodation comprises utility room, cloakroom, reception hall, sitting room, dining area, summer lounge, kitchen/breakfast room, 4 bedrooms, 3 en-suite bathrooms, family bathroom and converted loft.
