SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A detached property located away from the main thoroughfare and situated in the Dartmoor National Park, offering approximately 1.34 acres of south westerly facing gardens, garage/workshop, stocked fishing lake and superb countryside views over the Meavy Valley and beyond. We understand the house was built in the 1930's and hasn't been offered to the market for over 20 years.

Well presented and charming on many levels, this property does require updating in some areas. The house benefits from notable period features, including original leaded and sash windows, a Rayburn range cooker and wood burning stove. There is oil fired central heating via an external Worcester boiler and PVCu double glazing. There is also scope for extension with relevant planning consent.

The views from the rear aspect windows and garden are a particular feature providing a lovely sense of space, light and a continued appreciation of the landscape surrounding the home. The accommodation comprises porch, reception hall, cloakroom, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and utility/boot room. To the first floor is a sizeable landing, four bedrooms, bathroom and wc. We have been advised that the current owners have added drainage on the side elevation next to the main bedroom in readiness for an internal en-suite.

The property is yards from the open moors and is ideal for people who want to enjoy a special lifestyle on Dartmoor. There is also a small shop/post office in the village with a regular bus service. The home is also close to the village of Meavy where there is the historic public house called The Royal Oak on the village green which is locally considered one of the best in the area.
