3D VIRTUAL TOUR AVAILABLE. Backing onto fields, an ELEGANT DETACHED 1930s HOUSE, with four bedrooms, three receptions, DOUBLE GARAGE, stable, stores and SIZEABLE DRIVEWAY, in grounds of approximately 0.6 ACRE within this DARTMOOR VILLAGE

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An elegant detached 1930s house located in a village within the Dartmoor National Park, 100 yards from the moors with attractive grounds and rear aspect views creating a sense of space. The house has considerably improved since purchased 14 years ago with period character and comfort plus the current owners have added a beautiful garden room which extends the dining room. The home also offers a sizeable driveway which could accommodate many vehicles including space for hard standing and a detached double garage with remote sensor doors, mains power and water supply, which is divided into two areas.

The plot extends to approximately 0.6 acres (0.24 hectares) with a westerly aspect and offers a vast variety of mature and attractive trees and shrubs. The gardens are lawned with seating area, flower beds and several outbuildings including a detached stable. There is also a wildlife pond which is approximately 50cm deep alongside a summer house and a young orchard. On the side elevation of the house there is also a useful wood store and garden store for tools/lawn mower etc. The property also offers some pretty Devon banks including a beautiful front boundary with stone edging and gated entrance. The residence has oil fired central heating with a woodburning stove and fireplace for traditional warmth. There is also PVCu double glazing which has been changed since 2007 as rooms have been decorated.

The accommodation comprises porch, entrance hall, cloakroom, sitting room, dining room opening to the garden room, kitchen/breakfast room and utility/boot room. To the first floor is a large landing with central window, family bathroom and four bedrooms including a principal bedroom with a charming window seat, fitted wardrobes and sizeable en-suite.

The property is approached from a tarmac driveway flanked by a detached double garage and bounded by a stone wall/Devon bank. The rear garden can be accessed from either side of the property. On the northern elevation are further detached stores which are close to the door into the boot room/utility with space for logs storage and garden equipment. The rear garden has a westerly aspect and is interspersed with lawns, colourful shrubs and trees. At the bottom of the garden is a detached stable, summer house and wildlife pond. The gardens have continued to be improved over the years the owners have lived here and the grounds now are much more open and lighter than when they arrived. The garden has been ideal for them as a family and even was home to a pony for a period. The garden backs onto fields which we understand is owned by a number of neighbouring homes to secure the view. The property is in an area of similar homes which benefit from this stunning location at the foot hills of Dartmoor and walking distance to the open moorland on the edge of Dousland.
