AGENT COMMENT Lower Close is set in a secluded plot of around an acre and a half, just inside the Dartmoor National Park on the edge of Brimley and close to the popular town of Bovey Tracey. Having being occupied by the current owner for 38 years, it is on the market for the first time, ready to find the next owner. Whilst the home has been loved and cared for over the years, it would now benefit from updating. It has plenty of potential. The property sits well within the plot so it has excellent privacy. It has gardens to all sides with the outlook to the front enjoying views over the more formal lawn and paddock. If you are looking to put your own stamp on a property close to Bovey Tracey but in a location that enjoys peace and quiet in a countryside setting, then Lower Close is well worth a look.  

STEP INSIDE The veranda across the front gives access to the front door. Going into the entrance hallway there is the staircase up to the first floor. To the front of the property there is a large study, which could easily be used as a further living room, or indeed ground floor bedroom. It has a bay window looking over the garden as well as a window to the side. To the other side of the hallway is the dining room which again, has a bay window looking over the front garden. The room is spacious with plenty of space for dining furniture etc. There is also a serving hatch to the kitchen. A door at the side of the dining room leads into the main sitting room. The dual aspect sitting room is a lovely size and has an open fire. It also has a door into a garden room conservatory which in turn leads out to the garden. To the back of the ground floor there is a kitchen breakfast room complete with gas fired AGA . There is a window to the rear aspect and there is a handy larder store and space for the washing machine. There is also a second living room with window to the rear and side where there are pleasant views to the hills above Bovey Tracey. A bathroom with bath, basin and WC completes the ground floor.

Upstairs there is a large master bedroom with lovely views over the gardens to the front and side. The landing is spacious with dormer windows to the front. There are three further bedrooms on this floor and a family bathroom.
 

STEP OUTSIDE The property is set well back from the lane and is nicely secluded thanks to the mature trees. The gardens are split into different areas with the more formal lawn area to the front. The lawn leads down to a wire fence where there is a small paddock, suitable for grazing animals or a pony. The garden extends around the side of the property where there are various paths through the established shrubs, rockery and trees. Behind the property and in the top corner there is a large timber summer house with a small fitted swimming pool. This area of garden would have been a productive vegetable and fruit garden, in need of some TLC now, it certainly has lots of options for the green fingered! There are two single garages and further store sheds as well as gardeners WC. The driveway offers ample parking for a number of vehicles.  

LOCATION The home is in a perfect position for those looking for, peace, quiet and privacy without being cut off. It is a pleasant walk into Bovey Tracey or, in poor weather, just a couple of minutes drive. Bovey Tracey has all the amenities you could need, including Doctors surgery, pharmacy, dentists and numerous shops. Further afield, Exeter is just a 25 minute drive away where there are many higher end brands and stores you would expect to find in a Cathedral city.
