Tenure: Freehold

SITUATION An individual and secluded detached house offering approximately 4 acres of woodland and garden located on the fringe of the moorland village of Clearbrook within Dartmoor National Park. 

Clearbrook is a small village located between Plymouth and Tavistock. It has direct access onto open moorland and has a good community spirit revolving around the Village Hall and country pub. The village of Yelverton is approximately 2 miles away. 

A spacious detached house built we understand in the late 1970's in the traditional manner and later extended in around 2000 creating a further sizeable living area/garden room with wood burning stove and doors to the lawn and views. The house provides scope for updating but offers modern open plan living areas which look out to the garden, woodland and surrounding fields. The property provides approximately 4 acres in total and is in an elevated secluded position within its own private woodland and garden. There are further useful outbuildings including a sizeable double garage with inspection pit, wood sheds, greenhouse, car port/barn and summer house. The property is approached via a shared driveway with automatic gate leading to a gated track up to the house to the rear of a farmhouse. The accommodation comprises of open plan living/dining/kitchen, garden room, inner hall, utility and shower room. To the first floor are two double bedrooms a bathroom and two covered balconies with Velux windows off each bedroom which have been used as further sleeping areas when guests visit. The property benefits from solar panels for hot water, LPG gas fires in the living areas, Dimplex electric heaters and a wood burning stove. There is also aluminium double glazing and further insulation measures.
