4 bedroom detached bungalow for sale

Washbourne, Totnes


Property Description

Key features


Full description

Enjoying uninterrupted views over beautiful countryside, this versatile and well proportioned detached chalet bungalow is located between Totnes, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth in a tranquil and attractive small hamlet.


Little Rowden is positioned on the edge of thesmall hamlet of Washbourne which is located between Totnes, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth.  The nearest shop, Post Office, primary school, public house and church are at Harbertonford, which is around 2 miles away.  The A381 provides access into the main town of Totnes where there is a wide range of individual shopping outlets, eating venues and cultural/recreational facilities available.  There is also a railway station on the main line that links Penzance with London Paddington. The views from the property are outstanding encompassing an outlook over typical rolling Devon countryside to the hills beyond.

The property itself started out as a small Woollaway bungalow and has subsequently been substantially extended and insulated to form a comfortable home.  Photo-voltaic solar panels and a solar panel for assisting with the hot water have been installed, further increasing the property’s green credentials. 

The versatile accommodation allows the property to be used as one single large home or with the potential of a divided annexe to one side.  It would be excellent for artists, musicians or similar, as well as for family occupation.  Because of the limited supply of properties such as Little Rowden they rarely become available and we therefore recommend an early internal inspection to avoid disappointment

Follow this road through the village of Harbertonford and take the turning on the left signposted Washbourne. Continue along this road to the hamlet and drive over the small bridge, which crosses the River Wash and bear around the sharp left hand bend. Take the first right up hill and continue along this road where Little Rowden will be found on the left hand side.
