The Property
Enjoying far reaching views over Dartmoor and standing on a plot of 0.6 acres is this superbly presented, extended detached bungalow. Special features include a 27ft living room, 19ft kitchen/diner, 4 double bedrooms, versatile garden room, driveway for 4 cars, and a large rear garden.

Situated in a quiet no-through road comprising a mixture of similar, individual properties, Higher Cross certainly enjoys a high level of tranquillity and privacy within the Dartmoor village of Manaton, yet the village centre is within walking distance.

Higher Cross has been greatly enhanced and maintained during the current owner's tenure, including the installation of bespoke timber framed double glazed windows and doors, a replacement oil tank, the installation of a wood burner in the living room, and sympathetic replacement of the kitchen.

In summary, the accommodation is fitted with timber framed double glazing and oil fired central heating and briefly comprises a spacious Entrance Hall, 27ft Living Room with feature fireplace, 19ft Kitchen/Diner, Four Double Bedrooms, Family Shower Room, En-Suite Bathroom, Utility Room, and a versatile Garden Room. Outside is a Driveway providing off road parking for four vehicles, a timber Garage, an outside log store, and a large, lawned rear garden with a lower meadow. The bungalow has been remodelled in recent years in order to maximise enjoyment of the sunny, southerly aspect, and the far reaching views across Dartmoor - which can be taken in from the majority of the rooms.

The village of Manaton is situated within the Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its stunning moorland countryside. The village boasts an active community and a range of immediate amenities including a central village green, parish church (St. Winifred's), tennis court, cricket pitch, a weekly mobile post office, and an out-clinic from Moretonhampstead GP surgery. The parish hall hosts a variety of activities and events throughout the year and there is also an annual village fair. The village pub, The Kestor Inn, also includes a small village shop.

School buses run to Widecombe-in-the-Moor and Moretonhampstead primary schools, both of which were rated as "GOOD" by OFSTED in February and March 2017 respectively, as well as The South Dartmoor Academy in the nearby town of Ashburton. There is also the private Stover School located on the edge of the market town of Newton Abbot.

There are two bus services which run through Manaton, the 271 to Newton Abbot and the 672 to Okehampton. The A38 Devon Expressway to both Plymouth and Exeter can be accessed from the nearby town of Bovey Tracey.

Manaton is arguably the perfect place from which to explore Dartmoor, whether you prefer walking, cycling, or riding!
