Property Description: GUIDE PRICE
£399,995 to £425,000 DESCRIPTION
This three bedroom detached bungalow is located in a delightful setting on the outskirts of the village of Yealmpton and is set in a private location in a plot measuring approximately 726 sq m.
As of the 12/09/22 the owners are awaiting a potentially valuable 'pre-app' decision from South Hams District Council to extend the property further to create first floor accommodation, along with a holiday annex. Plans are available from ourselves upon request. The owners have also made a number of changes to the property, including a new oil fired radiator heating tank and system, double glazing and improvements to the insulation. Whilst some further works will be required, the property offers a tremendous opportunity to create a most individual home.
The bungalow is surrounded by delightful gardens and enjoys an elevated position. There is a large single garage and an under-croft workshop, in addition to substantial driveway parking. An internal inspection of this superb prospect comes highly recommended. SITUATION
Yealmpton is ideally situated for commuting to Plymouth, the city centre being only seven miles away. Within the village there are health care facilities such as a GP health centre, dentist and optician, and shops such as a Post Office, general store, hairdressers, garage and filling station with londis convenience store, café, two public houses and a Chinese restaurant/take away. Yealmpton Primary school is rated 'Good' and secondary schooling is at the 'Good' Ivybridge Community College for which there is transport provided. The village boasts an active community with a wide range of social and sporting clubs and societies.
Surrounded by the beautiful South Hams countryside, with many walks along the River Yealm and beyond, Yealmpton has a rural feel. The yachting haven of Newton Ferrers is within a short drive while many of the sandy coves and beaches of the beautiful South Devon coastline are within easy reach, as are golf courses and the Dartmoor National Park. Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside city, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, a modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafés, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb water-sports in and around Plymouth Sound and the Plymouth Life Centre. ACCOMMODATION
