DETAILS DESCRIPTION
It is situated in a delightful location and occupies a large site of
approximately one acre of gardens and is close to the centre of the
village. The property enjoys extensive views to the South as far as
Plymouth Sound and, having been improved by its current owners, now
offers modern and well appointment accommodation with a large light
and bright living room with log burner, a spacious kitchen/dining room,
master bedroom with en-suite shower room and a further two double
bedrooms and family bathroom. The home benefits from oil-fired central
heating, uPVC double glazing and a single garage. There is the potential
to increase the accommodation further as there is a very large roof space
measuring approximately 12.2m x 5.9m (from a height of 0.89m),
subject to the necessary permissions.

SITUATION
Shaugh Prior is a small village set on the southern edge of Dartmoor just
inside the National Park. It has a village pub, small primary school and
historic Parish Church. It is less than 5 miles from Plympton which has a
good range of shops, schools and services and only 10 miles (or less than
half an hour) to Plymouth city centre. For lovers of the countryside the
wonderful open spaces of Dartmoor are right on the doorstep and the
picturesque Shaugh Bridge crosses the river Plym at the foot of the hill.
From here are beautiful walks and along the riverbank and past the
Dewar Stone, a Mecca for local rock climbers.
Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided
with colleges, grammar and public schools, modern university, the
Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department
stores, cafes, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are
outstanding with superb watersports in and around Plymouth Sound.

ACCOMMODATION
This is a deceptively spacious 3 bedroom bungalow and offers excellent
potential for creating further accommodation by developing the roof
space, (subject to the necessary consents).
The light and airy living room takes full advantage of the views over the
garden and countryside beyond and there is access to the paved terrace
from a sliding patio door with uPVC windows either side. There is an inset
wood burner on a slate hearth. The shaker style kitchen is in-keeping
with the country feel of the property whilst offering modern convenience
with built-in Smeg ceramic hob with twin Smeg ovens below, integrated
dishwasher and built-in cupboards with space for large fridge/freezer.
The flooring is engineered oak. In the rear lobby is a utility cupboard with
space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer.
There are ample built-in storage cupboards in the hallway, including an
airing cupboard. The modern family bathroom is located off the main fully tiled walls and floor.
The generous master bedroom has an en-suite shower room with double
shower cubicle, low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin and ceramic
tiled walls and floor.

GARAGE
With up-and-over door. A generous size with light and power. Corner
butler's sink. Window overlooking rear garden and plenty of workshop
space. Oil fired boiler to one corner for central heating.

GARDENS
Mainly laid to lawn, but with wonderful mature trees and shrubs and a
variety of well planted flower borders providing colour and structure
throughout the year. The sweeping front driveway is bounded by locally
sourced boulders and gives the property its name.
To the front of the house, a pavioured sun terrace is accessed from both
the driveway and living room with steps down to the front lawn and is a
wonderful spot for sitting out and enjoying the superb views.
To the side of the garage is a discreet bin storage area also housing the
oil tank. There is a level area of lawn immediately behind the house.
The main part of the garden is to the side and rear of the property with
sweeping lawns dotted with mature trees and shrubs all running down to
a secret garden bounded by mature beech hedgerow.

and central heating.
