LOCATION: This home is ideally located with wonderful views to the moors and situated close to the heart of Bovey Tracey town centre. Known as the "Gateway to the Moors", this bustling town offers a comprehensive range of shops and amenities including a health centre, library, primary school, inns and churches. The town also benefits from good sporting facilities, including a swimming pool and a sports field/ tennis courts. The A38 dual carriageway, linking Exeter and Plymouth to the M5 motorway is within two miles of the town and there are mainline railway stations at Newton Abbot and Exeter. The open spaces of Dartmoor lie just to the west of the town and the South Devon beaches are mostly within half an hour's driving distance.
STEP INSIDE: Stepping through the front door, you are greeted by a spacious hallway which has wood effect lino flooring making it easy to maintain with pets/children. The hallway also benefits from under stairs storage. A white, glazed internal door sits to the right of the hall and leads through to the lounge. Decorated with neutral tones and carpet, this well proportioned room gets a great deal of light from the large front aspect window, enjoying views over the front garden. A focal point has been created by a mock fire place and character added with an attractive central ceiling rose and coving.
A large kitchen diner sits to the rear of the property and is divided by a wide archway. The kitchen comprises modern two tone gloss cabinets with an above sink window providing a garden view. There is an integral dishwasher and room for a freestanding gas range oven. There is additional space for a large American side-by-side fridge freezer in the dining area. The boiler is located in the kitchen. A utility room is accessed from the dining area of the property, which has a sink and space for 2 appliances, this leads through to a downstairs cloakroom and a playroom, which is currently used as a home gym/storage. A back door opens out from the utility area onto the rear garden and an additional door provides access to the front garden.
Stairs lead to the first floor, and a large window at the top of the landing, frames an incredible view of Dartmoor. The modern family bathroom is well equipped with shower cubicle, separate bath, WC and hand basin. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms one with countryside views and built in wardrobes, the other with views over the thoughtfully designed and pretty rear garden. The third is a good sized single bedroom.
STEP OUTSIDE: Several steps lead up from the main pavement of Cromwells Way to a gate that opens onto the front garden which is largely laid to lawn. A small patio area makes a nice place to sit out and watch the world go by with a morning coffee.
Access can be gained to the rear garden by the side of the property, and has been laid with some bark chips and stepping stones. The rear garden has been thoughtfully designed with a Japanese influence. Pretty ornaments and a well placed arbour decorate the space well.

AGENTS INSIGHT: "This is an incredible property with bags of potential. The room sizes are generous and the windows are large, keeping it all light and airy throughout. With neutral décor, it gives the opportunity to move in and not have to do anything to the property whilst you settle in and would only need to be changed to suit taste. Allowing you to put your own stamp on it over time. The proximity to the primary school allows slightly older children the safety of being able to walk to school on their own, without having to cross a road! The garden welcomes entertaining and has been designed to show off. It is a really wonderful home, close to the galleries and individual shops which Bovey offers, and a short drive to both Dartmoor and the market town of Newton Abbot. It's a very special place to live."
