SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION

An elegant, detached residence, which hasn't been on the open market for around 50 years, located within yards of the open moorland of Dartmoor and close to Yelverton amenities. The house was built we understand in late 1930's within mature grounds extending to around 0.8 acres offering level lawns, attractive bushes, trees and leafy boundaries, backing onto woodland.

Crapstone is located on the edge of Dartmoor and offers buyers a sense of the moors without being off the beaten track. The village is close to amenities of Yelverton which is located within a 15 minute walk or a few minutes drive.

A stone chipping drive sweeps past the house and opens to a parking area between the entrance and detached garage.
