A brand new, detached 3-bedroom bungalow with garage, garden and parking, in the heart of this popular West Devon village. Detached bungalow, 3 bedrooms, garage and driveway parking, double glazing and gas central heating, front and rear gardens. SAP Rating: B (81)
This select development of 4 brand new, detached bungalows is located in the heart of Bere Alston, a perennially popular village nestled in the picturesque countryside of rural West Devon. The village is well-served by local amenities and facilities, including a Co-op mini-market, and also benefits from a direct 25-minute rail service to Plymouth City Centre. Bere Alston forms the hub of an area known as the Bere Peninsula, created by the confluence of the rivers Tamar and Tavy, which itself falls within the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The verdant wooded banks of the Tamar Valley, along the Devon/Cornwall border, offer superb opportunities to discover the region's rich heritage.
A few miles further to the east, in West Devon, is the thriving market town of Tavistock, steeped in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century, and famed for being the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake. Today, the town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after private and independent school, Mount Kelly, whilst the largely 19th century town centre is focussed around the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, in which regular farmer's markets are held. Tavistock straddles the river Tavy and borders with the Dartmoor National Park along its eastern edge, making it an extremely popular destination for lovers of the outdoors with walking, riding, cycling and exploring all on the doorstep.
Plymouth, some 15 miles to the south, offers extensive amenities with the added attraction, for sailing enthusiasts, of its coastal access and the Mayflower Marina. The cathedral city of Exeter lies some 40 miles to the northeast, providing transport connections to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5 motorway.DESCRIPTION
Currently under construction and due to be ready for occupation by Spring 2018, this detached 3-bedroom bungalow is the first of four within this exclusive development. Built of traditional, cavity blockwork elevations, rendered externally and finished in Cornish Cream paintwork beneath a pitched, concrete tiled roof, the bungalow is finished with some natural stone detailing and quoining to add a touch of distinction.
At this stage of the build, a prospective buyer would have the chance to choose some of their own internal finishings. Options for the tiling in the kitchen and bathroom, the flooring in the bathroom and the paintwork in the living area are all available for selection.
The property will be complete with a driveway, leading to the integral garage, flanked by a front lawn and enclosed by a combination of natural stone walling and traditional timber fencing. The rear garden will be landscaped, providing a peaceful and sheltered area in which to enjoy the outdoors. ACCOMMODATION
The accommodation is illustrated on the floorplan overleaf, being accessed from the side elevation through an entrance porch into the main hallway. From here, doors will lead off to all rooms and internal access will be provided to the INTEGRAL GARAGE (19'7 x 8'8) which features an electric, remote controlled up-and-over vehicle door to the front. The open-plan kitchen/living room will be equipped with a good, modern range of wall and base-level Howdens units, incorporating a sink, integral fridge/freezer and integral dishwasher, whilst patio doors lead out to the property's rear garden. Of the three bedrooms, two are good size doubles and the third is a single, with the latter also featuring loft access via a hatch and pull-down ladder. All three of the bedrooms will be fitted with USB-ready power points, allowing the owner to charge USB-powered devices straight from the mains electricity supply without an adapter. The largest of the bedrooms, facing the front aspect, also benefits from a box window which allows for excellent natural lighting. Finally, the bathroom will come fitted with a modern bath with a shower over, wash basin and WC, whilst also housing the property's airing cupboard.OUTSIDE
To the front of the bungalow, a tarmac driveway will be provided for access to the garage and to offer space for additional off-road parking. To the side of the driveway will be an enclosed lawn and paved pathways leading around both sides of the bungalow to the rear garden.
The garden will be landscaped prior to completion providing a private area for the new owner, laid mainly to lawn and enclosed by natural borders and gabion banks.SERVICES
