Full description

Moorgate occupies a fine setting on the south eastern corner of Dartmoor National Park. The immediate surrounding area abounds in many lovely walks and rides and the open moor at Haytor Down is just two minutes away.

Although undoubtedly occupying a rural setting, the property is easily accessible and stands about 2.5 miles from the town of Bovey Tracey and about 6 miles from Ashburton, both of which have excellent shops and everyday amenities.

The A38 Devon Expressway is just ten minutes drive away and connects the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter, where the road joins the M5 motorway link.

Moorgate is an attractive bungalow built in around 1930, with later additions, and positioned to gain best advantage of the wonderful views of Haytor, the patchwork of surrounding fields and more distant vistas towards Teignbridge and the South Hams.

The accommodation is tastefully presented and includes a bespoke light-oak kitchen, two connecting reception rooms and three bedrooms plus study/fourth bedroom. It has double glazing, modern oil fired central heating and PV panels with a feed-in tariff via EDF.

Outside, there is a lovely sheltered garden with a sunny south and west facing aspect, superb views once again over the surrounding countryside and well established plants and trees.

A generous sized garage with electrically operated sliding door is accessed via a tarmacadam drive with turning area.

The sale of Moorgate provides an opportunity to buy a well located, comfortable home with some of the best views in the area.
