Full description

A rare opportunity to acquire a rural, semi-detached house with glorious views and large south-facing gardens. Semi-detached, quiet semi-rural position, 2 double bedrooms, 2 receptions, 1/3rd-acre south-facing gardens, various outbuildings, car port and ample parking, countryside views. EPC Band G.

Situation - The property lies on the edge of the self-contained village of Chillaton. The fully equipped market town of Tavistock is some 7½ miles away with supermarkets, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgery, together with cinema and swimming pool. In addition, there is access from here to Dartmoor National Park with its wide range of country and outdoor pursuits.
The A30 trunk road can be accessed from Liftondown, approximately 6 miles away. The former market town of Launceston with its 24-hour supermarket, fully equipped leisure centre and two testing, 18-hole golf courses, is 8.5 miles away. The A30 provides access to the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter, there is access to the M5 motorway network, mainline railway station serving London Paddington and international airport. The city of Plymouth is 23 miles to the South with its deep water marina and regular ferry crossings serving northern France and Spain.

Description - This delightful, semi-detached property occupies an enviable position surrounded by countryside, thereby benefitting from a good degree of tranquility and privacy, as well as some attractive rural views. Internally, the 2-bedroom accommodation is comfortable with elements of character, such as engineered oak flooring, fireplaces and panelled doors, whilst the south-facing garden, with its mix of open lawn, paved patio, and fruit and vegetable production, extend to just over 1/3rd of an acre and offer ample space in which to enjoy the country lifestyle. In addition, there is a chicken run and various outbuildings, including a large double carport, toolshed, machinery shed/workshop and two greenhouses. To the front of the house is a large parking area for several vehicles and a further lawned garden.

Accommodation - The accommodation is clearly identified on the floorplan overleaf, being entered on the ground floor either into the kitchen/breakfast room to the front of the house, or into the hallway to the side. The triple-aspect breakfast kitchen, which, with its patio doors to the garden and internal door to the hall, could very well be seen as the hub of this home, is equipped with a range of base-level units and cupboards with roll-top work surfaces over, incorporating a ceramic sink with mixer tap and drainer. There are spaces under the counter for a washing machine and slimline dishwasher, whilst the oil-fired Rayburn is used not only for cooking, but also to serve the central heating and hot water. To the rear of the kitchen, the hallway has panelled doors to the two reception rooms; the door to the sitting room is complemented by some pretty, stained glass over the architrave. Both the dual-aspect sitting room and the dining room have patio doors to the garden, whilst the former also features a fireplace with a timber surround and slate hearth, currently housing a multi-fuel stove for extra warmth during the winter months.

The first floor landing has doors off the two double bedrooms and the bathroom, in addition to an airing cupboard and adjacent linen cupboard. The principal bedroom is, again, dual aspect, with the front-facing window best placed to take advantage of the countryside views to the north, whilst the second bedroom looks out over the gardens and benefits from a fitted wardrobe to the alcove. Finally, the bathroom is fitted with a 3-piece suite comprising a panelled bath with rain-style shower head, a low-level WC and a pedestal wash-hand basin, finished with a chrome, heated towel rail.

Outside - The gardens are an undoubted feature of this property and extend to just over 1/3rd of an acre, wrapping around the garden on the southern and eastern sides and providing various areas for the enjoyment. Stepping out from the breakfast kitchen, a paved patio provides the perfect sheltered location for entertaining or al fresco dining and leads, via steps and a pathway, to the main lawn which is interspersed with a selection of trees and shrubs, and features a chicken run with coop in one corner. Some established conifers provide some shelter around the boundary. To one side of the plot is a fruit and vegetable garden, comprised of several planter boxes, a fruit cage, two greenhouses (one with power connected) and an orchard containing two pear, two apple and two victoria plumb trees. Presently, the owners are growing an array of produce, including potatoes, squash, red and white onions, purple sprouting broccoli, lettuce, beetroot, spring onions, garlic, courgettes and tomatoes. Adjacent to the greenhouses is a timber tool shed.

To the front of the house is a large parking area sufficient to hold several vehicles, which is accessed through a 5-bar double gate over a tarmac and gravel driveway. An open DOUBLE CARPORT (20'7 x 13'9) provides further parking, and has power and lighting connected. The driveway continues to the side of the carport and leads to a substantial WORKSHOP (measurements TBC), also with power and lighting. Finally, there is a further area of lawn directly in front of the house, offering another spot from which to enjoy the views and completing the picture of this well-rounded countryside home.
