Full description


Lower Hill is situated in the sought after Grange Road area of Buckfast, close to the famous Buckfast Abbey and picturesque Hembury Woods, on the southern edge of Dartmoor.

Grange Road consists of good quality individual detached properties and Lower Hill benefits from a particularly private and level plot. Although occupying a semi-rural setting, it is readily accessible, being just a mile from the A38 at Dartbridge, bringing Exeter and Plymouth within convenient commuting distance. The nearby towns of Ashburton and Buckfastleigh each offer a range of everyday shops and amenities. Local facilities available in Buckfast include a primary school, post office and inn.

Lower Hill was completely re-modelled around seven years ago to provide spacious five bedroomed family sized accommodation with modern levels of insulation, full gas fired central heating and of course double glazing. At the heart of the house is an impressive kitchen-dining-day room overlooking the gardens at the rear, whilst the living room has a multi-fuel burning stove with contemporary timber and slate surround.

Outside, the gardens wrap around Lower Hill on three sides with generous expanses of lawn, many established shrubs and trees and a virtually south-facing aspect at the rear. They benefit from a high degree of privacy and are a perfect environment for children and pets.

Directions
Travelling west towards Plymouth on the A38 Expressway, take the Buckfastleigh exit at Dartbridge. At the end of the slip road, turn right, and on reaching the mini-roundabout turn right signposted Buckfastleigh and Buckfast. After a while the road bears left up the hill and past the entrance to the Abbey. Take the next turning on the right into Higher Mill Lane, and at the end of the road bear left into Grange road. The entrance to Lower Hill will be found after about quarter of a mile on the left.
