LOCATION: Ashburton is known as the 'Gateway to Dartmoor' and this ancient stannary town has a rich historic past. The town is noted for its fine architecture and period buildings and there is a vibrant town centre with excellent shops including artisan bakers, delicatessen, butchers, fish deli as well as a post office and numerous cafes/restaurants. Ashburton lies on the southern boundary of Dartmoor National Park and just off the A38 Expressway which brings the two Devon cities of Exeter and Plymouth within commuting distance.
STEP INSIDE: The front door opens onto a vestibule which is the perfect place to hang coats and kick off shoes before you enter into the hallway. A door leads from the vestibule into the integral garage, which has an up and over door, power and lights. The electric, water and gas meters are located in the garage, as well as the main the electric panel.
All of the rooms lead off from the main hallway. A family bathroom sits to the left of the property and features a retro bathroom suite with WC, basin and bath with over bath electric shower. Heating is provided by a wall mounted electric heater.
The kitchen is in need of some updating, but has great potential. The kitchen flows through to the dining area, which has a floor to ceiling window offering countryside views. The kitchen has space for an oven, fridge freezer and washing machine. A Worcester boiler sits on the wall in the kitchen providing gas central heating throughout. An airing cupboard in the hallway houses the immersion tank and provides some shelving for linen.
The living room looks out over the front garden, the large window gives you a broad view of the pond and seated patio area. There is a central ceiling pendant light with a track light running in front of the window. This room is heated with a radiator and there is an ample supply of plugs. The two good sized bedrooms both sit to the rear of the home and have views over the garden and out towards to the countryside.
There is a combination of UPVC and wooden framed windows, and most are double glazed. The property needs full refurbishment, and will be a great project.
STEP OUTSIDE: Wrought iron, waist height gates open onto the single driveway which extends down to the integral garage. The front garden is overgrown, but you can see the makings of a beautiful sun trap with pond and pergola. A hedge protects your privacy from passers by. The rear garden is accessed through the lean to via the kitchen and there is also access on the other side of the property, from front to back.
The rear garden has a potting shed constructed from UPVC panelling and has double glazed windows and a lockable door. There is also a shed, summer house and several water butts dotted around. The view from the rear garden extends towards the local countryside, however you can see some of the neighbouring properties.
