AGENTS INSIGHT: "Each member of our team has taken the time to go and visit this remarkable property. Each of us has a different take on what we would do with it.. This bungalow is a versatile home with uncapped potential. Sat adjacent to Bradley Road, it is not out of place in this incredibly sought after area of Bovey Tracey.

The large and plentiful windows offer huge amounts of light adding to the feeling of space, and the countryside views achieved from standing at the breakfast bar in the kitchen are truly stunning. Even the rooms to the rear have views over fruit trees and plants.

This home needs some TLC, to be loved and modernised. There is a scope to create something exceptional by either extending (subject to planning permission) or simply enhancing what is already there."
