OUTSIDE From the quiet parish road a particularly good quality concrete drive, which belongs to Meadow View, stretches for about 0.5 miles between traditional Devon banks and leads to the property. It gives access to a large concrete hardstanding providing parking for 3 or 4 cars, and also to the:
ADJOINING GARAGE 23'10" x 11'9" (7.26m x 3.58m). Up and over door. Rear pedestrian door. Window to side. "Worcester" LPG boiler. Light and power connected.
Level front lawn enclosed by a brick built wall with particularly well stocked borders. Gate from the entrance lane onto a path leading to the bungalow, passing under a timber arch playing host to a wisteria, and continuing to either side. 2 feature circular raised beds. To either side of the bungalow, arched gateways give access to the rear garden. This again has well stocked borders. To the right hand side of the bungalow is an amenity area with a good sized timber shed, and bulk LPG tank. Tucked away adjacent to the rear lawn is a:
"BLUEBIRD" STATIC CARAVAN Used for storage and located on a paved surround.
From here, a gateway leads to a further wide grassy strip with paving slabs giving pedestrian access to the Agricultural Shed. A real feature of the front gardens is that across the lane is a well established and very picturesque copse containing a great collection of both native deciduous trees including ash and beech, complemented by a great collection of flowering shrubs with bluebells and other wild flowers on the ground.
THE LAND The good quality level/rolling pasture extends to some 17.8 acres and slopes down to a strip of stream bordered woodland, with native deciduous trees, which extends to some 1.67 acres. Farm Payments will be included with the property, and the land has been particularly well managed by a local farming family whose tenancy for the land ends in July 2018, by which time a cut of silage will have been taken.
AGRICULTURAL OUTBUILDING Some 47' x 39' (Some 14.33m x 11.89m). Quality built with a combination of block, profile sheeting, and steel framing under a corrugated roof with skylights. Large twin doors to the front give good wide access of about 12ft in width, with 11'9 clearance. Inside the shed, there is about 14ft clearance to the apex of the roof with light and power connected. Concrete floor.
Immediately to the front of the shed is an area of concrete hardstanding, and from here a gateway gives direct access to the land which also has a separate gateway from the entrance lane. On the edge of the concrete hardstanding is a:
SMALL TRADITIONAL SHED Some 10'9" x 7' (Some 3.28m x 2.13m). Stone/brick/block construction.
SERVICES Mains water and electricity. Private drainage. LPG boiler in the Garage.
