We are pleased to offer for sale this large property which was constructed in 1981 and extended a short while after, into what is now a very substantial home. Additionally, a ground floor double garage has been recently converted into a sixth double bedroom, utility room and entrance hall which could be modified for a number of purposes.

Abbotskerswell is a highly sought after village with a charming ambience and strong community. It boasts a popular inn/restaurant, general store, church and a well-regarded primary school. Approximately 5 miles from Totnes and 2 miles from Newton Abbot with a wider range of facilities including schools, shops, superstores, hospital, race course and mainline railway station. In addition, its close proximity to the newly constructed A380 bypass ensure easy access to the M5 motorway and Exeter, the local coastal areas and the Dartmoor National Park. Daily buses also serve local secondary schools including Torquay Grammar Schools.

The lower ground level has a utility room and spacious double bedroom with en suite shower room - an ideal space for a teenager, guest accommodation or could easily be modified for independent living for a relative. Stairs lead to the kitchen which also has another entrance from outside where there is a patio for alfresco dining. The impressive open plan kitchen/dining room has a contemporary kitchen with solid surface worktops and an extensive range of white gloss units, breakfast bar and spaces for range style cooker and American style fridge/freezer. Next to the kitchen is what could be a multipurpose room (currently a double bedroom) with an en suite shower room. A half flight of stairs leads to a dual aspect snug with solid maple flooring. A further half flight of stairs leads to a light and airy sitting room with a feature fireplace and two sets of French doors opening onto a south facing balcony which enjoys views over the village and countryside beyond. A superb area for further dining opportunities and sunbathing. From the living room a hall gives access to a family bathroom and 1/2 flight of stairs to 2 further spacious dual aspect bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, Velux windows and exposed beams. One of the bedrooms has an en suite shower room and access to a decked balcony. Finally, there are two further bedrooms which enjoy breath taking views and a shower room. There is also a separate office and store accessed from outside.
