SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An innovatively designed bungalow, said to have been the winning design in the Ideal Home Exhibition in the 1960's, set within private secluded gardens offering distant rear aspect views over the surrounding landscape and Dartmoor beyond.



The property has no onward chain and hasn't been on the market since 1986. The home requires updating and improvement with ample scope for further extension and rejuvenation so as to appreciate the vista and grounds. There is private drainage via a septic tank, mains water and electricity. The rooms are warmed via independent and thermostatic controlled Suka radiators and there are also solar panels for hot water. Original features adorn the rooms from the period of construction plus PVCu double glazing and doors.



Outside the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with sheltered areas and established trees and shrubs providing colour and shade in the summer months. To the side is a vegetable/fruit garden with a greenhouse and shed along with a cellar under the kitchen area which is ideal for further secure storage. A sizeable gated driveway extends to the bungalow offering off road parking for several vehicles and potential hard standing for a motorhome etc. The accommodation comprises reception hall, sitting room, living/dining room, kitchen, lobby/larder, bathroom and two double bedrooms. The property is located surrounded by Devon countryside and is approximately 10 minutes from Tavistock, Bere Peninsula and Gunnislake making it ideal for commuting or amenities.
