Property Description: DESCRIPTION
Located on the outskirts of Lee Mill Bridge surrounded by fields, Canly is a superb three bedroomed detached bungalow, offering light and spacious accommodation which, whilst well maintained, could lend itself to those wishing to put their own stamp on a property. With a plot circa 0.4 acres, the property enjoys considerable potential for a multitude of options. Conveniently located with easy access to the A38, and a footpath providing a short walk into the village, an internal viewing of Canly is highly recommended to appreciate all it has to offer.
There is the option at a further premium to buy a total plot size of up to circa 6 acres. SITUATION
Located near the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park on the banks of the River Yealm, Lee Mill Bridge is a small village offering numerous advantages. Originally settled, it is understood, in the 15th Century, the village benefits from a congregational church, built c1810, and the Westward Inn, c1835, and offers superb connections to Plymouth, Exeter and beyond via the A38 Devon Expressway.
On the outskirts of the village is a 24-hour Tesco Extra and the town of Ivybridge can be found a little further afield, with its selection of independent shops, bank, hairdressers, pubs and cafés, along with a very well-regarded secondary school, leisure centre, health centre, library and mainline railway station.
The ocean city of Plymouth lies approximately nine miles west of the village and offers a wider range of shops, restaurants and amenities such as theatres, independent schools, cinemas, major hospital and continental ferry port.
Outdoor pursuits are also in close proximity in Dartmoor National Park, which offers a variety of locations for horse riding, walking, climbing and cycling. McCauleys Health Club and Ivybridge Golf Club can be found en-route to Ivybridge. The South Hams beaches of Mothecombe and Wembury are within a half-hour drive. Plymouth Sound and the yachting haven at Newton Ferrers offer opportunities for sailing, SUP, kayaking and more. ACCOMMODATION

To the front of the property a double five-bar gate gives access to the driveway providing parking for several vehicles and on to the gardens which are a particular feature of the property, having been lovingly tended over the years by the current owners. The formal garden is mainly laid to lawn with a path running around the property and well-stocked flower borders featuring many specimen shrubs including camellia, clematis, hydrangea and lilac, along with apple trees, blackcurrant bushes, a vegetable patch and herb garden. There is a useful greenhouse and a composting area, plus a rockery and wood store. To the eastern side of the property, there is a delightful wildflower meadow with recently planted hawthorn hedge dotted with specimen trees. OUTBUILDING (CIRCA 0.4 ACRE OFFERING)
At the bottom of the meadow is a Nissen hut, dating we understand from the second World War, of mainly brick construction with a corrugated roof and which would be ideal as a workshop/storage unit or any number of other uses. In addition, the foundation of another such shelter remains to the side and there is separate vehicular access to this area.
The new owners will be responsible for creating the boundary behind the Nissen hut which will be approximately 2m running parallel with the back of the shed.
The Title Deeds will be adjusted accordingly. POTENTIAL EXTRA LAND
There is the option at a further significant premium to buy a total plot size of up to circa 6 acres, (including the 0.4 acre offering).
The boundary of the Western end of the field will be approximately 25 m from the exiting hedge. The sellers may entertain offers for part of this land, but purchasers will be required to define the exact definition of the land they are offering on
All purchasers will be responsible for creating a stock proof boundary. AGENT'S NOTE

Overage would be calculated at TBC% on enhanced land values on approval of development,(as stated above),for a maximum of TBC years from completion
NB The client may be prepared to negotiate on the terms of overage subject to the offer made.
