An attractive period house, located in a desirable crescent on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, offering a wonderful level garden, countryside views and a sizeable sweeping driveway.

A wonderful family home, located in a quiet residential road, away from the main thoroughfare and within easy reach of open moorland. The house hasn't been on the open market for around 40 years due to how much the current owners have enjoyed living there. The property is approached from a sweeping driveway which opens to a parking area with a large garage, flanked by a level lawn and planted borders. The entrance of the home is framed with a beautiful wisteria which adds to the initial appeal. The gardens are level and provide areas to sit, entertain and grow a selection of vegetables. The rear boundary backs onto fields with distant views to Cornish hills on the horizon. There are a variety of shrubs and mature trees including a historic Devon bank. There are a series of useful outbuildings in the garden plus a cold store and a detached garden store at the bottom of the garden.

The house offers high ceilings and traditional features and is entered by a light and airy porch. The main hallway is in the centre of the house with useful understairs cupboard and space for hanging coats. The main living rooms include a sitting room, dining room and a garden room at the rear of the house. This room is ideal for taking in the garden and provides a further reception room for entertaining family and friends. The traditional kitchen has a gas-fired Aga range cooker in the fireplace and a larder cupboard with granite shelf for ample storage. The kitchen provides room for an extendable table and offers fitted cupboards and granite worktops. A door leads from the kitchen to a side lobby with doors to the front and rear garden plus a useful shower room. The utility room is via an external door, which is accessed by a covered area, ideal for drying on a rainy day. The utility room is where the boiler positioned and has a butler sink, space for washing machine and tumble dryer.
