About this property

A conveniently positioned detached family home within Dartmoor National Park with far reaching rural views. EPC Rating C.

Tucked away on the edge of the picturesque village of Buckfast with wonderful views over the surrounding moors and Buckfast Abbey, this superbly presented 5 bedroom home offers the opportunity to have a delightful quality of life. Built in 1937 as a coach house, the current owners completely renovated it in 1992 using quality finishes throughout including the attractive leaded windows and cedar shingle tiles to the first floor elevations. Imaginatively laid out on 3 floors the spacious rooms, hall and landing create a very comfortable, quality home within walking distance of Buckfastleigh.

The approach to the house through a 5-bar gate and long drive is charming with lawns and established trees and shrubs including cherry and plum trees, camellias and a magnolia tree, along with a pretty pond to one side. The drive circles in front of the house and there is a double garage.

The small market town of Buckfastleigh is conveniently located close to the A38 Devon Expressway giving easy access to Plymouth and Exeter, where it links with the M5. Some 5 miles away is Totnes where there is a mainline railway station with direct connections to London, Paddington. Buckfastleigh is an active town with numerous shops and pubs. It also boasts a well-supported church, St. Lukes, the steam railway and a Farmers Market on Fridays. Once a year the village hosts the Buckfastleigh Arts Festival.
