St Anthonys Close occupies an enviable position on the edge of the village of Belstone, overlooking its own large gardens with views of the open moor beyond. Belstone has an excellent pub, tea rooms, church and methodist chapel, riding stables and village cricket club. An outreach Post Office in the village hall is also available two mornings a week. A more comprehensive range of amenities can be found in the nearby former market town of Okehampton, which has three supermarkets including a Waitrose, nationally and locally owned shops, modern hospital and state of the art leisure centre. There is schooling for all ages to A-level standard, sports and leisure facilities including thriving rugby and football clubs, as well as tennis, squash and bowls. 18 hole golf courses can be found on the edge of Okehampton as well as at Ashbury. The Cathedral and University City of Exeter is easily accessible via the A30 dual carriageway, having an extensive shopping centre, together with international airport and M5 motorway connections and mainline rail connections. The Dartmoor National Park is famed for its hundreds of square miles of unspoilt scenery, with many opportunities for riding, walking and outdoor pursuits.DESCRIPTION
St Anthonys Close is believed to date from from around 1912 and comprises a spacious detached family home set in attractive large landscaped gardens. In addition to the main residence which benefits from double glazing and electric central heating, there is a separate detached cottage with its own road access. The cottage has been successfully let producing a good income, but could easily be an annexe to the main accommodation, or holiday cottage if required. The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of St Andrews Close, being well stocked with a wide variety of trees and shrubs and there is extensive parking and garaging for both the main house and cottage. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a distinctive detached residence with large gardens and grounds and a separate detached cottage with considerable income potential.ACCOMMODATION
