Full Details

This is an ideal family home with a double garage and off road parking. 

Built in 1950 -1960

In need of modernisation, this four bedroom Dorma bungalow offers lots of potential and even has it's own tunnel leading to two small rooms under the garage.

The front of the property has steps up to the front door. The front door is a brown composite double glazed door opening into the hallway with further doors to the lounge, dining room, two bedrooms, downstairs w.c and stairs to the first floor.

The lounge is carpeted and has a feature fire place with an electric fire. A window overlooking the front garden has views over to the moors. 

The dining room has a gas fire with a back boiler which heats the hot water and partial central heating. beside this is an airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. A side window gives light to the room and a door opens to the kitchen. 

The kitchen is small and would benefit from updating. It currently has floor standing cupboards/drawers with worktops, space and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a free standing gas cooker. There is also a useful larder cupboard and a storage cupboard. A door opens to the rear porch with a separate cupboard, this offers potential for development. 

Bedroom three is a carpeted double with a pedestal basin. Dual aspect windows allow in plenty of natural light and gives you views across the town to the moors.

Bedroom four is also a carpeted double but has built in wardrobes and a window to the rear garden.

Stairs rise to the first floor landing with two further bedrooms and the family bathroom.

The principal bedroom is a generous double with large dual aspect windows giving plenty of light and lovely views and has its own pedestal basin.

Bedroom two is a double with its own pedestal basin and a window overlooking the rear garden.

The family bathroom comprises; white bath with an electric shower over and shower curtain, low level w.c and a pedestal hand basin. 

Sellers Insight

The house has been owned by my family for over 60 years
There are outstanding views across Newton Abbot and Haytor and a large expanse of Dartmoor is clearly visible from all the windows at the front of the property.
The rear garden would easily lend itself to a vegetable plot as it is level and has sun on it most of the day.

The large garage with its inspection pit is a useful addition for anyone keen to maintain their own vehicles.

The neighbours, many of whom have lived in the road for several years are friendly and helpful if the needs arises.

There is a primary school, Sainsburys, Co-Op, Post Office, Fish & Chip shop, Pharmacy and launderette all within 10 minutes walk of the property, and a doctors surgery less than a mile away.

The main town of Newton Abbot is a 20 minute walk or you can take the local bus which runs regularly into town or after a 10 minute walk to the Penn Inn roundabout you can take a bus to one of the towns in the Torbay area. Newton Abbot is also on the main railway line and this can be walked to within 20 minutes.
