This outstanding country residence approaches 1.5 acres and features a detached, 4 bedroom (1 en-suite), PVCu double glazed, LPG centrally heated bungalow with PV solar panels, nestling in lovely gardens with useful outbuildings including a double garage, workshop/studio, and a 20ft general purpose store shed. Adjoining the formal landscaped gardens is a well enclosed small paddock. Great rural location with some outstanding views stretching to Dartmoor about a midway between Holsworthy/Okehampton/Launceston, and available with no onward chain. OPTION TO ACQUIRE AN ADJOINING 5.5 ACRE FIELD WITH USEFUL AGRICULTURAL OUTBUILDINGS. EPC=C

Having undergone much improvement by the current vendor, is this deceptively spacious bungalow that was formally 5 Bedrooms, but is currently arranged as follows: Entrance Hall, Living Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Conservatory, Utility/Boot Room, 3 Bedrooms (1 En-Suite), Dining Room/Bedroom 4, and Bathroom.

Virginstow lies about mid-way between the friendly villages of St Giles on the Heath and Ashwater, which offer a good range of local amenities. The market towns of Holsworthy and Launceston, the "gateway" to Cornwall, are some 10 miles and between them offer an excellent range of local/national shops, professional services, leisure amenities, and schools. It is surrounded by some of the South West's finest unspoilt countryside, and a real bonus is the nearby Roadford Lake with its excellent watersports and fishing opportunities. For those wishing to travel further afield/commute, the A30 dual carriageway is only about 7 miles and this brings the Cathedral City of Exeter and the M5 to within a comfortable 40 minute drive.

Directions
From Holsworthy proceed on the A388 Launceston road for approximately 3 miles and upon reaching Clawton, turn left signed Ashwater. After approximately 1.5 miles, upon reaching Sprys Shop Cross, turn right signed Ashwater/Broadwoodwidger. Continue along this road for approximately 4 miles, following the signs to Broadwoodwidger. Pass through Ashmill and upon reaching Reservoir Cross turn right. Proceed along this road for approximately 1 mile where Longacre will be found on the left hand side, at Middlecott Cross with a Bond Oxborough Phillips 'For Sale' notice clearly displayed.
