This extended semi-detached 4 bedroom house is situated in the sought-after village of Stoke Gabriel, which lies at the head of a creek on the River Dart, about 3 miles south-east of Totnes and 4 miles to the south-west of Paignton and Torbay.
The older part of the village is in a Conservation Area near the River and Mill Pool and much of the area is a Coastal Preservation Area.
The village has a range of amenities, including a Church, primary school, pre-school, village hall, Post Office, convenience store and 2 pubs. Stoke Gabriel offers a great lifestyle for a family, both because of the amenities it offers and also its thriving community spirit. Being so close to the River Dart means that boating, canoeing and river trips are that much easier to enjoy and there is also a very popular boating association, with training for children and a social calendar.
Unusually for a village property in South Devon, the house enjoys a large level plot, with a garden that is approx. 100' long. There is ample off-street parking space on the driveway, plus a good-size garage, with remote-control door. The accommodation comprises a sitting room with feature fireplace, generous kitchen/diner, utility, bathroom and 4 bedrooms, the master bedroom featuring a vaulted ceiling and French doors out to a roof terrace overlooking the rear garden.
Gas central heating is installed, with a new energy-efficient condensing combination boiler fitted in April 2018 and benefitting from a manufacturers guarantee until April 2028. (Please note that the EPC was prepared before the installation of the new boiler). The windows have also been updated, with low-maintenance upvc double glazing and internal doors replaced with a solid timber panelled style.
Agent's Note: We understand that there is a covenant attached to the property – as this is a former local authority home, an owner must have been living or working in Devon for the last 3 years, or for a cumulative total of 7 years out of the past 20 years within the South Hams area.
