This semi-detached home is situated within the beautifully scenic Dartmoor village of Princetown, being approximately 500 yards from open moorland yet with all day-to-day amenities close at hand, including shops, cafés and two popular public houses. Famed for its links to the Duchy of Cornwall, the late 17th-century village of Princetown offers a lifestyle that few other nearby locations could claim to match and is perfectly positioned for exploring Dartmoor and all that it has to offer. We wish to make interested parties aware that this is a former Home Office property and is located directly adjacent to HMP Dartmoor.
Yelverton, with its parade of shops, GP and Veterinary Surgeries, fuel station, Post Office and various sports clubs, is only 6 miles to the southwest. Tavistock, a thriving market town rich in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century, is just 7 miles away to the west. The maritime city of Plymouth is 15 miles to the south and Exeter, via the B3212, is 28 miles to the northeast. Both provide rail and motorway connections to the rest of the UK, whilst Exeter benefits from an International Airport and Plymouth from cross-Channel ferry services.DESCRIPTION
This 3-bedroom, semi-detached home offers well-balanced accommodation with a corner-plot garden, two garages and additional off-road parking for two vehicles. Originally built in 1953 as a pre-fabricated Home Office property, it was purchased by our clients in 2001 and structurally rebuilt, circa 2004, in traditional cavity brickwork, making it suitable for mortgage lending. Various improvements have been carried out since, making this a comfortable home suitable for a variety of purchasers, although there remains further scope for modernisation. The property is offered with no onward chain.ACCOMMODATION
The accommodation is shown on our floorplan and entered on the ground floor via the porch, which is vented for a tumble dryer and leads into the hallway. The sitting room features an electric fire and faces the front, thereby getting a glimpse of the moor to the north. To the rear, the spacious kitchen/dining room is complete with a very good range of modern wall-mounted cupboards and base-level units to three walls, including a push-shutter corner cabinet and Zanussi double oven (one half is not functioning at present but could be replaced by the owner prior to a sale, if required). The roll-edge worktops incorporate a sink and a 4-ring electric hob with extractor, and there are plumbed spaces below for a dishwasher and washing machine, with space for an upright fridge-freezer to the side (appliances could be available by negotiation). There is a side porch off the kitchen, leading to the garden and also providing access to the WC and boiler cupboard. At first floor level are the three bedrooms, two of which are good size doubles, and the bathroom. Some spectacular moorland views are available to the front-facing bedrooms.OUTSIDE
There is off-road parking space in front of the house for two vehicles, in addition to a good size detached garage with power, lighting and double doors. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn.AGENT'S NOTE - GARAGES
