Property Description

Key features


Full description

Occupying a superb 2 acre plot within an elevated and private location overlooking far reaching countryside and Dartmoor. Access via a long shared private driveway, yet with the conveniences of a short stroll to local schools and the attractive town centre of North Tawton. The bungalow enjoys a gated entrance, a large driveway, superb gardens enjoying views out over the remaining plot. There is vehicular access into the plot which gently slopes away, enhancing the views and rural feeling, despite being a short stroll from the town. It is this, that makes it rare and it is the size of the plot that we believe puts this home into the "once in a lifetime" category. Whilst the bungalow requires work, it was until recent months, happily lived in and there are enough creature comforts for anyone to move in and make additions (subject to planning permission) or improvements along the way. The access is long and narrow but plenty enough for a small commercial vehicle or horse box and is believed to be unadopted. Once inside the gates it is virtually impossible to stop the imagination running away with the possibilities available, the agents are unsure if it is possible to add an additional residence perhaps if a larger family was thinking of co-residing, however all the signs that this could be possible are there. Another idea may be simply to (and with the local authorities permission) change the home for a larger residence which fits the surroundings better and takes full advantage of the views. Visit to let your imagination run wild as it is the plot, the superb location, privacy and views, whilst being so central, that offer this home its wow factor. The town of North Tawton is positioned centrally between the towns of Okehampton and Crediton with excellent road links and easy access to Exeter. This home will not be on the market for long, please do not wait to book your appointment to view this outstanding piece of real estate. No onward chain.
