Full description

Overdene occupies an enviable setting in Grange Road, close to the famous Buckfast Abbey and with picturesque views of Hembury and North Woods.

It lies within Dartmoor National Park and Grange Road consists of good quality individual detached properties with Overdene benefiting from a large level plot and being set nicely back from the road.

Although occupying a semi-rural setting, it is readily accessible, being just a mile from the A38 at Dartbridge, bringing Exeter and Plymouth within convenient commuting distance.

The nearby towns of Ashburton and Buckfastleigh each offer a range of everyday shops and amenities. Local facilities available in Buckfast include a primary school, post office/shop and inn.

Overdene was built in 1992 and is a timber framed Scandia-Hus, Swedish energy saving home incorporating very high levels of insulation and with triple glazing.

The accommodation has a light and airy feel and includes tiled entrance hall, large living room with wood-burner, inner reception hall, kitchen, good sized utility, superb conservatory room with doors to the garden, three double bedrooms and quality en-suite shower room and a bathroom. There are air conditioning zones throughout the property and an air extraction system serving the bathroom, shower room and utility room. The overall quality of fittings and finish/presentation is of a high standard.

Outside, there is extensive parking for numerous vehicles at the front of the property plus a good sized garage which forms an integral part of the bungalow and could be easily incorporated with the living accommodation if desired (subject to any required consents).

There is gated access on either side of the property (the eastern side could accommodate a car/boat) to a lovely south facing garden at the rear which is attractively landscaped with well planted shrubbery beds and enjoys a high level of privacy.

Travelling west towards Plymouth on the A38 Expressway, take the Buckfastleigh exit at Dartbridge. At the end of the slip road, turn right, and on reaching the mini-roundabout turn right signposted Buckfastleigh and Buckfast. After a while the road bears left up the hill and past the entrance to the Abbey. Take the next turning on the right into Higher Mill Lane, and at the end of the road bear left into Grange road. The entrance to Overdene will be found after about quarter of a mile on the left, shortly after the turning to Hembury Park.
