Enviably located in a sought after VILLAGE LOCATION only a short walk from open moorland, a 1920s DETACHED BUNGALOW with PLANNING PERMISSION to extend, two bedrooms, 23ft kitchen/diner, GARDEN, driveway PARKING and GARAGE.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An attractive and enviably located bay fronted 1920s bungalow which has been extensively refurbished, situated in a sought after location in the village within the Dartmoor National Park, a short walk from the open moorland, village shop and bus routes.

Dousland is a small village with a post office, general store and The Burrator Inn. Yelverton is approximately one mile where there are good shopping facilities, including a small Co-op supermarket, chemist, butcher, hairdresser and delicatessen. There is also a health centre and dentists surgery, several inns, restaurants and churches. There are good sporting facilities including golf, riding, fishing and walking all at hand. The city of Plymouth is approximately nine miles distant and the pleasant market town of Tavistock is some five miles away with a regular bus service to both.

A two bedroom detached bungalow built, we understand in 1922, offered with a double garage (completed 2016) and Planning Permission to extend, as shown on the plans attached.

The bungalow offers a light and airy living space with high ceilings and tall bay front windows which look out over a beautiful garden. A gated driveway leads up to a large parking area flanked by a lawned garden which in turn steps up to a seating terrace with a covered verandah, ideal for enjoying the afternoon sunlight. The open moors of Dartmoor are a few hundred yards from the back gate making this an ideal property for people who enjoy the lifestyle that goes with it. The property has undergone major refurbishment in recent times, inside and out, and now benefits from a Worcester central heating boiler, double glazed windows, wall insulation, Drymaster air circulation and ventilation system, improved living space which has been redecorated, including a 23ft kitchen/dining room, a landscaped garden and garage. A particular feature are the 1920s stained glass windows which burst with colour when the sun shines through and are elegant in design.

The accommodation comprises porch, hall, kitchen/dining room, sitting room, two double bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and separate double shower.
