Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tucked away along a quiet country lane yet just a mile from local amenities, the property is conveniently positioned and offers easy access to Tavistock, Dartmoor and Plymouth by road, whilst the train station at nearby Bere Alston facilitates alternative rapid access to Plymouth city centre. The Bere Peninsula forms part of the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are many opportunities for walking, riding and sailing close by, with the sailing club at Weir Quay and boatyard at Calstock both being within a few miles on the River Tamar.

The bungalow itself is generally in good order and the accommodation is well-rounded. On the west-facing side of the property is a good size, dual-aspect living room with a stone fireplace, currently inset with a wood burning stove. Adjacent can be found a large, L-shaped kitchen/dining room complete with an extensive range of shaker-style units and work surfaces, plus integral appliances including an in-built double oven, fridge, dishwasher and a 4-ring halogen hob. Off the kitchen can be found a single glazed conservatory, whilst there is also a study and utility/boot room. In the bungalow's south-west corner is the dual-aspect master bedroom with a shower room en suite, whilst two further bedrooms and the family bathroom can be found along the hallway.

The bungalow is surrounded by its large, verdant gardens, which total over 1.3 acres all told and offer the space and opportunity to extend or enhance the bungalow, subject to the necessary consents and approvals. An outdoor swimming pool with adjoining pump house and patio can be found towards the centre of the garden and although these do require some maintenance and tidying at present they would offer the property's new owner a fabulous area in which to entertain or enjoy the garden during the warmer months. Between the bungalow and the pool lies a small orchard and in one corner of the garden is a greenhouse, whilst there are a selection of vegetable boxes to one side. The top of the garden has been fenced off to create a small paddock suitable for ponies and in this fenced area there is a small stable. From the very top of the garden some wonderful, far-reaching views towards Dartmoor and the surrounding countryside are on offer. Please note that a further paddock of 3.5 acres is also available to the rear of the property with direct access from the top of the garden - details available through Ward & Chowen.

At the bungalow's entrance are a detached former garage, measuring approximately 18' x 17', which is presently being used as a workshop/stable but could be reinstated as a vehicular garage with relatively minimal effort. Additionally, to the side of the workshop can be found a machinery/tool shed - both buildings benefit from a power supply and an outside water tap is also available between the two. Finally, there is ample space for several vehicles in within the property's parking area in front of the bungalow.

We would strongly encourage a viewing of this property to fully appreciate its wonderful setting and backdrop, plus the country lifestyle on offer. Families looking for generous outside space should take note, as should those seeking a property in which to grow produce or keep ponies.
