The property occupies an outstanding position in a peaceful rural area near Wembworthy, a short distance to the west of the Taw Valley between Exmoor and Dartmoor. The surrounding gently undulating and unspoilt Devon countryside, affords a predominately agricultural landscape of mainly pasture and arable land interspersed with an abundance of wooded valleys. Wembworthy itself is a small rural village benefitting from a Church and the village public house which is just 0.3 of a mile from Stonecrest.
The village of Winkleigh lies just 2.5 miles from the property and boasts two public houses, a post office, butchers, a general stores, wet fish shop, vets and a doctors' surgery. The village also provides a community centre, a village hall and a sports centre, together with a church, a chapel, and a well regarded Primary School.
The small town of Chulmleigh (5.2 miles) provides a thriving and very active local community which has managed to retain a good range of local services including highly regarded primary and secondary schools, a sports centre, post office, various shops, a health centre, dentist, public houses, restaurants and a historic town hall.
Despite its rural position the property still enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and main routes of communication with the A377 providing an easy link to the larger towns of South Molton, Crediton and Barnstaple, each providing an extensive range of everyday shopping, banking, recreational and educational facilities.
From Tiverton the A361 provides quick and easy access to the M5 motorway (Junction 27). There are nearby rail stations on the Barnstaple to Exeter (Tarka) line at Eggesford and Kings Nympton. Main line rail services are available at Exeter and Tiverton Parkway, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

Power and water connected. The property is approached from the council road via a private gated entrance drive with a wide grass verge adjoining the road and a wide privet hedge affording a good degree of privacy. The driveway continues to provide the concreted parking and turning area situated to the front of the bungalow and also provides access to the detached single garage.
Adjoining the parking area is a level lawned front garden with a flower and shrub border. The lawned garden continues to the side and rear of the property with further flower and shrub borders extending down a gentle slope into the main gardens which are laid mainly to lawn and contain a number of mature Conifers, ornamental trees and shrubs.
