Full description

Tenure: Freehold


The property is situated at the far end of Jordan Street, set nicely back from the road, adjoining an old orchard, on the edge of the small South Dartmoor town of Buckfastleigh.

The town's shops and amenities are within a ten minute level walk and include post office, butchers, newsagents, Co-operative stores, cafes, primary school and health centre.The spectacular rugged landscape of Dartmoor is close to hand and the larger towns of Ashburton and Totnes are three and seven miles, respectively. The A38 at Dartbridge gives swift, easy access to the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter where the road joins the national motorway network.

The property offers a highly individual home currently with three bedroomed accommodation but with plenty of scope for enlargement, subject to any required consents. There is a basement room which could be incorporated as living accommodation with relative ease.

Many of the rooms take in views over Buckfastleigh and the surrounding countryside. A real attraction of the property has to be the outside space with a traditional stone barn set around an original cobbled courtyard and the two distinct garden areas beyond. The barn would make a perfect studio or home office, subject to consents. Parking for one small car is currently provided.

All in all, the sale represents an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a well located home which, whilst perfectly comfortable and habitable, allows the buyer the chance for improvements and to stamp their own mark on the property.

DIRECTIONS

Travelling on the A38 Expressway in the Plymouth direction, take the Buckfastleigh/Buckfast turn off and follow the signs for Buckfast Abbey. On reaching the mini-roundabout by the entrance to Buckfast Abbey, proceed up and over the hill, eventually taking a right hand turn into Church Street. The entrance to Jordan Street is the fourth on the right and number 38 will be found towards the end of the road on the right.
