Tenure: Leasehold

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A sizeable detached Edwardian Duchy leasehold bungalow which has undergone major refurbishment offering versatile accommodation within a curtilage of approximately 2.5 acres. This granite built property, which was once two dwellings, is located away from the main thoroughfare of Postbridge village in a quiet position within the Dartmoor National Park and is hidden from view.

The property has been transformed into a comfortable home with large living spaces, bedrooms on the ground and first floor plus a cosy snug and rooms yet to be developed, presenting an opportunity to suit the requirements of a purchaser. This 1920's bungalow benefits from a recently replaced roof with modern insulation and slates in keeping with the period design, main electrics, private drainage and water, a recently installed wood burning stove which heats the water and in the main areas of the house there is a modern gravity fed hot water cylinder, Sunflow thermostatic controlled electric radiators and further insulation measures. All of the windows and doors have been recently replaced with high quality fully double glazed units and there are also Velux windows on the first floor. The property can be entered from four areas and therefore could be separated into different living areas for a large family.

Outside, the garden and field are full of attractive shrubs, trees and flowers with a small bridged leat giving the property its name, plus a granite stone ruin which was once a pub called 'The Good Intent'. The property is surrounded by formal gardens, adjacent to which is a meadow and area of wetland. Across the way is a vegetable garden and paddock plus several useful outbuildings.
 

LOCATION Postbridge itself has a shop/post office, an inn, church and village hall and also a National Park Visitor Information Centre with large car park. Being in the very centre of the Dartmoor National Park, therefore the location offers ample opportunity for a wide range of outdoor pursuits. Postbridge is also noted for having the finest example of a clapper bridge in the county. Situated 8 miles from Moretonhampstead to the East and 12 miles from Tavistock in the West, other towns with shops and pubs nearby are Princetown (6 miles), Chagford (7 miles) and Widecombe-in-the-Moor (6 miles). There are primary schools in Princetown, Widecombe and Moretonhampstead. The historic university city of Exeter lies about 22 miles to the East and Plymouth lies 22.5 miles to the Southwest. 

OUTSIDE The property is surrounded by extensive gardens. To the front is an attractive lawned area with a host of interesting plants and shrubs, small stream and two wooden bridges leading to a path to the front door and to the door to the living room. Beside the house is an area of lawn and at the rear is a further area of level grass. Adjacent to this is a meadow and an area of wetland. Across the lane from the property is a large vegetable garden and a small paddock. 

TENURE Duchy leasehold at a current annual rent of £7,200 pa. This is reviewed every 3 years. There is a letter from The Duchy of Cornwall stating they are willing to grant a new 20 year agreement when the current lease ends in 2018.
