VIDEO/VIRTUAL TOUR AVAILABLE for this property. Occupying a magnificent position with the most amazing far reaching countryside views, is this sizeable detached bungalow providing substantially extended family accommodation in immaculate condition throughout and with the benefit of large rear gardens and the option of purchasing approx. 4.5 acres of paddock land (by separate negotiation). Set in a tranquil, but not isolated, residential but rural country lane, the property is convenient for facilities at Callington and Tavistock, and yet enjoys the views and peace of a rural setting.

Entrance Hall 
Light and bright room with part vaulted ceiling. On the left is a:

Paddock Land (Available for an additional cost of £45,000) 
Amounting to approximately 4.65 acres, laid to pasture and currently sub-divided into 3 separate areas to ease keeping of livestock. A small newly planted copse to one end and 5 bar gate gives access to the B3257 at the rear. This area is of course ideal for those with equestrian interests or those who wish to create a small hobby farm or just use the land for leisure purposes if you have a young and lively family!

Double Garage 
18' 6'' x 16' 9'' (5.63m x 5.10m)
Electrically operated roller door. Light and power. Door to Utility Room and oversized doors leading to the garden to facilitate ride-on mower access.

General Notes 
In 2013, our clients built a sizeable extension on the front and side of the property to take full advantage of the magnificent views at the front and have created two fabulous new bedrooms and therefore restyled the interior of the property accordingly. Improvements within the property include 'Celotex' underfloor insulation to some rooms, in-line valves to all sinks and a solar water filled back-up hot water system which gives a boost to the boiler and reduces running costs. The septic tank capacity has also been increased, and a new oil tank was installed January 2017.

Mains electricity. Bottled gas for lounge fire. Mains water. Private drainage (septic tank).
