Situation - Springdale is situated in a rural position between the villages of Longdown and Whitestone, just four miles from the cathedral and university city of Exeter. Exeter provides an excellent range of facilities befitting a city of its importance and has railway stations on both the London Paddington and Waterloo lines. Its international airport is to the east of the city. Access to the A30 dual carriageway, which links to the M5 motorway, is only 3 miles. The outskirts of Exeter, at St. Thomas, are about 2 miles where there is a local mini-market. A few miles south is the Dartmoor National Park whilst to the south east is the Exe Estuary.

Description - This detached bungalow enjoys an elevated position with wonderful countryside views. The property is in need of modernisation. Surrounding the property are mature gardens with a detached storage barn, an area of sloping pasture and woodland. Overall the property amounts to approximately 11.6 acres.

Accommodation - From the main entrance an inner hall provides access to the bedrooms, bathroom and sitting room. Bedroom 1 has a delightful bay window with a southerly orientation, and a side aspect window with views over the garden. Bedroom 2 is also dual aspect with views over the garden and countryside beyond. The bathroom is arranged with a bath, walk-in shower, wc and wash basin. Double doors from the hall lead into the sitting room which enjoys a dual aspect with sliding patio doors that lead out to the rear garden, a feature revealed beam and an inset wood burner. From here you enter the kitchen, which has a dual aspect with garden and rural views, arranged with an array of fitted base and wall units, an oil-fired Stanley and revealed beams. The large utility has two doors to the front and rear of the property and is fitted with base and wall units, sink and space for appliances. A door leads through to a store cupboard, cloakroom and through to the extensive attached garage/workshop. The property requires a degree of updating and renovation. Potential growth of the accommodation may be possible, subject to the necessary consents.

The Grounds - Surrounding the bungalow are extensive lawns, fruit trees and a rear patio area with a delightful rural outlook. To the front is a circular gravel drive with a detached storage barn and a paddock extending to the rear. The main parcel of land is to the west of the property, on the other side of the main access track. This area incorporates gently sloping pasture and an area of woodland.
A bridleway goes up the drive so perfect for equestrian buyers.

Services - Mains electricity. Mains water (sub metered to farm next door). Private drainage. Oil-fired central heating.

Directions - From the centre of Exeter proceed on the B3212 Dunsford road. After 1 mile, turn right onto Tedburn Road. After approximatively 2 miles turn left, just before White Horse Motors. Continue along the road which will then turn into a rough track. Continue up the track until just before the end of the lane where Springdale entrance is on the left.
