This detached countryside home is located in a beautifully peaceful, edge-of-moorland location outside of the popular village of Peter Tavy, within Dartmoor National Park. The bungalow is surrounded by its own gardens and grounds of 0.92 acres in all, providing a high level of privacy and a scenic outlook on all sides. Cox Tor forms the backdrop to the property's rear aspect and is clearly visible from the gardens and paddock. One can use country lanes to access the foot of the Tor - and open Dartmoor beyond - within a mile.

Peter Tavy itself is an unspoilt village situated close to the River Tavy in the quiet countryside of West Devon. The village features a medieval granite church and a very well-known and popular public house. The thriving market town of Tavistock is only 3 miles away to the south. The city of Plymouth is 16 miles to the south and the cathedral city of Exeter lies some 38 miles to the northeast, providing transport connections to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5 motorway, in addition to an international airport.

A cherished home to the current owner for 26 years, this charming late-1940s property offers a rarely found chance to secure a detached bungalow on a no-through road, complete with gardens, a paddock and a garage with workshop. The accommodation is in good decorative order, with some original features. Extending or re-modelling may be possible, subject to planning, and the current owner has just installed a brand new septic tank. Breath-taking views are on offer to the north and east.

The accommodation is shown on our floorplan and accessed on the ground floor through an entrance porch into the central hallway. The sitting room features an open fireplace and a bay window to the front aspect. Opposite, the largest bedroom has a matching bay window and fitted wardrobes with an integral dresser. There are two further double bedrooms, one of which looks north and thereby takes advantage of the wonderful, far-reaching views over Peter Tavy to Black Down and beyond. The bathroom sits at the head of the hallway, fitted with a 3-piece suite including a panelled bath. The kitchen is very much the hub of this wonderful home, with a cosy, country feel. Set into a tiled fireplace, the oil-fired Aga is the centrepiece flanked by fitted shelving and cupboards to the alcoves. At the other end of the room is an adjoining area with more work surfaces, cupboards, integrated fridge/freezer and sink unit, enjoying a fabulous full view of Cox Tor to the east, with a walk-through larder/boot room leading out to the gardens and garage.

The gardens wrap around the property on all sides, enclosed by Devon banks and stone walling. There are well-kept lawns to the front and sides, with a patio seating area to the rear offering a full view of Cox Tor. To the south of the plot is a small copse. To the side of the bungalow is a garage and workshop also housing a very useful utility/laundry area and a separate shower room, ideal for washing off after a day on the moor.
