The location is ideal for Crediton with it’s schools and amenities and the A30 is only 3 miles away providing easy access into Exeter and beyond.

    The bungalow is in need of some updating but offers a new owner huge potential to improve and create a wonderful home. The gardens surround the property with the paddock on the south side, gently sloping away and the woodland can be accessed from the paddock or via a track to the side. In all the land extends to approx. 11 acres (5 acre paddock and 6 acre woodland). Internally, the property is spacious with a kitchen/dining room, utility and WC at one end, the living room, study area and conservatory in the middle and the 3 bedrooms are all at one end. The windows are older style double glazed and the heating is a mix of wood-burner and oil fired central heating via the Stanley in the kitchen which also provides hot water and cooking.

    Outside there is ample parking and gardens to the side and rear with views to the south. The outbuildings, including wood store, workshop and garage could also do with some attention but are in place. The paddock is currently let as grass keep and the woodland provides a wonderful environment for wildlife and a constant supply of wood! The woodland is mixed deciduous comprising of mainly oak, willow and alder. The top half acre is under planted with a collection of shrubs, mostly hybrid rhododendrons and azaleas which flower in the spring. All of the shrubs are on their own roots, with no grafted plants.
