SITUATION
This detached bungalow sits in a quiet position on the fringe of Bere Alston, with an open outlook to the front aspect over neighbouring parkland.
 
The village is well-served by local amenities and facilities (approx 1/3rd of a mile away), 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.

DESCRIPTION
This property offers some generally light and spacious accommodation which is now in need of some alteration in places, having been adapted for accessibility in previous years. The property benefits from good off-road parking and views - over the village at the rear and a playing field in front. An undoubted feature are the attractive, level gardens which are well-rounded and should appeal to both families and the hobby gardener alike.

The accommodation is accessed on the ground floor via an entrance porch leading to the sitting room, with a bay window to the front elevation overlooking the playing field. There is a door to the master bedroom to the side, again with a bay window to front.

Leading on from the sitting room is the dining area which opens to the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with with a range of base-level and wall-mounted units incorporating a single sink and drainer unit, integral double oven, integral ceramic hob, and various spaces for appliances. Interested parties should note that some of the kitchen units are currently height-adjustable, having been adapted for accessibility. From the kitchen/dining area there is a utility room housing the Vaillant combi boiler and from where there is a door leading out to the rear garden. Also on the ground floor is the family bathroom, comprising a panelled bath, low-level WC and a vanity unit with inset wash basin. The property's second bedroom is located to the rear of the property and has fitted wardrobes and a further door to the rear garden. From the dining area, stairs rise to first floor where there are a loft room with fitted cupboards, from where views are on offer to the front and rear aspects, and a cloakroom.
