SITUATION/DESCRIPTION The property is situated towards the outskirts of the town but within walking distance of amenities and with easy access to the open countryside.

Hatherleigh is favoured for its interesting mix of period properties along its medieval streets, its active community and close proximity to Dartmoor, the A30 and the delightful surrounding countryside. The town enjoys a good range of local amenities including a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants, local businesses and a community hall. There is also a variety of thriving sport and leisure activities.

Okehampton which is approximately 7 miles to the South lies on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park. It is approximately 30 miles from both the north and south Devon coasts. There are superb local beauty spots where one may enjoy walking, riding and fishing. The shopping area contains banks, supermarkets, including Waitrose, as well as many interesting locally owned shops. Primary and secondary education is well catered for in local schools. The recreation ground and park contains, amongst other things, a covered heated swimming pool. Most sports are available including 18 hole golf course, squash courts, indoor rifle range and thriving rugby and football clubs

A well positioned end terraced period property arranged over two levels with two reception, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. In need of some refurbishment the property offers great potential and should appeal to prospective first time buyers. Character features remain which include a period fireplace with bread oven providing a focal point to the sitting room. There is also a wood burner and oil fired central heating throughout.

To the rear is courtyard currently housing a sizable timber shed and close by is a detached enclosed private garden surrounded by mature hedging which may be suitable for development subject to the necessary consents.
