A rare opportunity to acquire an extended detached 1920's residence, offering far-reaching views and attractive level gardens, situated on the edge of the village within easy reach of the train station and amenities.
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Built we understand in 1929 in the traditional manner under a tiled roof, this impressive and attractive detached home hasn't seen the open market since 1989. The property has been the perfect family home and was more recently extended at the rear in 2012 creating a desirable open plan living, dining, kitchen area. This room offers space for comfy seating and dining with doors to the rear garden and views. The kitchen is modern and has an integrated dishwasher, space for a cooker and fridge/freezer. The original kitchen area has been cleverly retained with the Rayburn still in situ within the fireplace. There is also a useful utility area with space for appliances and a further door to the garden/driveway, ideal for removing shoes and coats, and a shower room with a toilet and large sink/drainer. The entrance hall is traditional in style, with original features and flanked by two bay fronted rooms and the entrance porch. The two front rooms have fireplaces, one with a gas flame fire and the other a gas stove.
To the first floor is a light landing with a window to the rear views and continued original balustrade. The bathroom has been modernised and has ample space for a large bathtub and shower cubicle. There are four bedrooms, with the two largest rooms sitting to the front with fireplaces and large windows. One of the bedrooms has also got new fitted wardrobes. We have been advised that there is potential to convert the loft, subject to planning and approvals. The loft currently has a pull-down ladder, a light, and insulation. The property is warmed by mains gas central heating with a boiler that has been serviced. We have been made aware that the current owner has new electric certificate to aid the sale.
The property is approached from a gated driveway which passes the house to the rear and the detached garage. The garage is need of repair and would need to be replaced. There is ample parking for several vehicles and hard standing. The gardens encompass the house and have beautiful views to the rear. The entire plot is around 0.20 acres and mainly laid to lawn, with mature shrubs and trees. The property is ideal for those who need to catch a train with railway station within walking distance. The primary school is also within easy reach and the village centre within 5 mins walk. There is a nearby garage for fuel and repairs. The peninsula is ideal for beautiful tranquil walks, which are also close to the doorstep of this 1920's house.
Bere Alston is 15 minutes by car from both Tavistock and Yelverton and approximately one hour from Exeter. The surrounding fields of the village are peppered with public footpaths which have beautiful walks and views of the Tamar River and surrounding countryside. This tranquil Devonshire village has been labelled a World Heritage Site and is perfectly positioned away from main roads. There are several shops including a post office stores with local bakery, two small supermarkets, butchers, hairdressers, café/restaurant, takeaway, pharmacy, doctors' surgery, primary school, public house, bus services and a garage with petrol station.
The Bere Peninsula is formed by the Rivers Tavy and Tamar creating a special secluded area steeped in history. Due to the rivers, there are also public slipways and boat yards at Bere Ferrers and Weir Quay along with a gig club and excellent outdoor pursuit facilities.
