About this property

A large and individual detached bungalow with double garage and extensive parking, standing in a generous garden adjoining and overlooking open fields on the outskirts of the exceptionally well equipped village of Yealmpton.

A large and individual detached bungalow, with double garage and extensive parking, standing in a generous garden adjoining and overlooking open fields on the outskirts of the exceptionally well equipped village of Yealmpton.

In a location that offers the benefit of both privacy and remarkable convenience and set behind a high hedge with double gates leading to the level and welcoming drive, Birchland is immediately attractive. This is a well proportioned modern property in a mature non-estate setting enjoying widespread views over the open fields that it adjoins. There is very considerable potential of being able to be developed to suit personal needs, subject to the necessary consents being obtained. While the accommodation, front garden, drive and double garage are on one level, there is a most useful basement workshop on a lower level with the main garden, enclosed by established hedgerows, adjoining.

A large open porch leads to the entrance lobby and hall. There are three open-plan reception areas: a triple aspect sitting room with central fireplace/chimney dividing it from the dining room, and a further sitting area which gives access to the large rear terrace. Off this area is the fitted kitchen/breakfast room, and to the side the principal bedroom and en suite bathroom. An inner hall gives access to 3 further bedrooms (one of while currently forms a study) and the family bathroom.

Yealmpton is one of the most comprehensively equipped villages within easy commuting distance of Plymouth. Facilities within half a mile of the property include a health centre with dispensary, Post Office, primary school, general stores, excellent farm shop, garage/filling station, two thriving pubs, hairdressers, opticians, two churches, and a regular bus service to Plymouth City Centre, which is a mere 7 miles away. A remarkable network of footpaths lie around the village and the beautiful countryside of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the River Yealm Valley.

The property was built in the 1980s to a generous design.
