SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A Dartmoor retreat, hidden from view within the historic village of Walkhampton, with attractive gardens, off road parking, garage and notable character. The property is sited away from the village lanes on an old cobbled lane which twists past its door. This stone built property was once the old post office store, and dates back to when they were connected.

Completely renovated and improved by the current owner around 1990, the home now benefits from a modern mains gas boiler (installed approximately two years ago) stunning oak windows and features plus a wood burning stove within the main living room. The deep sill windows also have oak topped window seats which complement the beams, floor and stairwell of the space. There are two entrances to the house, the main entrance is a beautiful solid wood door which leads into the hall area which in turn opens to the living space with broad windows and wood burning stove. There is a door into a further reception room which was originally used as a garage but the current owners tends to use it as their main entrance. It is an ideal area for hanging up coats, boots and has potential to be a further full time living space with a fire. An inner hall is the site of the mains gas Worcester boiler with doors to a bathroom and the kitchen/breakfast room. There is a fitted kitchen with space for a washing machine and a fridge/freezer. There is an integrated oven and hob plus space for a table and chairs. To the first floor is a light landing with an area which was used as a home office. There are three good size bedrooms with further character windows, exposed beams and attractive wooden floors. The current owner also considered using the attic space to create a bathroom/shower room upstairs but never needed to do so. This attic area is boarded with a light and accessed by a pull down ladder in the inner hall on the ground floor.

The garden is enclosed with attractive stone walls and shrubs creating an attractive oasis. The garden also has a stone chipping driveway which allows parking for several cars. There are two outbuildings, a wooden shed and a modest stone building which has seating creating an ideal summer house. The garden has lawns and some beautiful flowers and established bushes all benefiting from a southerly aspect. The garden is a couple of yards from the property across the historic cobbled lane.

Walkhampton is an attractive and tranquil village in the Dartmoor National Park. There is a desirable pub and gardens called the 'Walkhampton Inn' which is around the corner from the house, a village primary school, village hall which has a Saturday market and a garage. The open moors are within easy reach from the door so the home is ideal for those enjoy outdoor pursuits.
