SELLERS INSIGHT We have a very sociable group of neighbours with a mixture of couples and families.
The town centre of Newton abbot is a five minute walk and provides you with shopping, plenty of pubs/eateries, and the mainline train station.

The views are amazing: from Haytor right down to The Ness, many hours have been sat with a coffee or glass of something on the balcony just taking it all in. The garden provides plenty of areas to relax and enjoy the sun and views, the decking is perfect for BBQs and parties, we have had many over the years!!!

The house is very versatile and has served us well, allowing for everyone to have a space of their own. During lock down it also provided plenty of homeworking space without compromising on the living space in the house. There is also potential for an income from the lower part of the house or this could make a perfect space for an au pair/nanny or relative.

Our children have now fled the nest and it is time to "down size". We will be very sad to leave both the house and the street.
