SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
A detached residence located on the edge of a desirable village within Dartmoor National Park, offering grounds around 0.40 acres and distant views to Bodmin and Dartmoor tors. The property also has a detached garage and former stable block which is ideal for storage, both with mains power and lighting. We understand the property was constructed in the early 1970's with a cavity wall and pitched tiled roof. The home hasn't been on the market for around 30 years with scope for further improvements and extensions, subject to relevant planning approvals. The views from the windows and the gardens are a particular feature and look over open fields, Dartmoor tors, village church and Bodmin moor in Cornwall in the far distance. The gardens have been perfect for a family and entertaining over the years, extending to around 0.40 acres with established trees, lawns, planted flower beds and seating areas. The front garden has been recently landscaped with a level lawn and Beech hedge. The home is approached from a driveway which rises to a large parking area at the front and side, which in turn leads down to the garage at the rear. Internally the bungalow is in good order with a modern kitchen/dining room, sitting room and bathroom.
The sitting room has a multifuel stove, which has been annually swept, and the property is warmed by oil fired central heating. The boiler is a Worcester Greenstar Danesmoor which has also been serviced annually. There are also double glazed PVCu windows and further insulation measures in the walls and loft. The loft was once considered for conversion, but no further plans were made or passed.
There are two entrances to the property from the driveway and enough space and rooms to potentially have annex area within the living space. The property comprises, porch, hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, living room, which could be used as home office or further bedroom, shower room, bathroom and three further double bedrooms. The rooms are light with large windows, some of which are double or triple aspect, helping a sense of space and enjoyment of the views.
Walkhampton village is on the western edge of Dartmoor National Park and is around 1 mile from Yelverton, which offers many amenities including a supermarket, deli, cafes, doctors' surgery, pharmacy, dentist, and garage/petrol station. The village itself has an excellent community spirit with local events happening through the year. There is also the Walkhampton Inn, ideal for food and drinks, good primary school, village hall, which also has a post office operating on a Monday and a Saturday market. There is also playpark and village recreation field plus a garage. The open moors are very close and therefore ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, dog walks and open spaces.
