Lustleigh, Newton Abbot
This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a detached 3 bedroom bungalow enjoying elevated views over Lustleigh, and across to woodland. With spacious accommodation, lovely gardens and ample parking, this property is being sold with no onward chain.
AGENT INSIGHT Little Trapstile is being offered for sale for the first time in over 30 years. Tucked away down a private lane and sitting on a plot of around 0.33 of an acre, Little Trapstile is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking for a spacious, light property in this wonderful village.
The large windows throughout offer wonderful views over the Lustleigh countryside, and whilst some of the décor could benefit from updating, the rooms are lovely and spacious. I love the fact that the property is so bright and has such a lovely view. It would be simple to put your own stamp on this home and really create something really very special.
The grounds are just as special, with private seating areas to admire the view and lawn areas bordered with mature plants and trees. There is even a gate from the garden which leads into the village orchard and on into the village centre. Something many residents of the village will be envious of I'm sure.
Little Trapstile has been a loved home for many years and it would be great to find a new owner who will enjoy it for many years too. Please call 01626 818094 or email email@example.com to arrange a viewing.
STEP INSIDE The main entrance is to the side of the property, it opens into a porch which in turn opens into the main hall. The living accommodation is all to the side of the bungalow with the views, which is perfect, so the view is always visible. The kitchen is nice and bright and has space for breakfast table. There is an oil fired AGA as well as electric oven and hob. There is a useful utility room just off the kitchen which has a door out to the garden.
The dining room is a generous size and has a nice sun lounge space off it where you can sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery. There is a door from the sun lounge out to the garden terrace. The dining room has sliding doors to the living room, so it can be kept separate or opened up as one room. The living room is 21'10" x 14'8" and has large picture window to one side and sliding patio doors on to the rear patio making it really light and airy. The room also has an open fire place which works well as a focal point for the room.
The master bedroom suite has a large window looking over the lawn and gardens, it has a bathroom ensuite which also has a shower and a good size dressing area with built in wardrobes. Bedroom two is also a generous double, with ensuite bathroom and built in wardrobes. Bedroom three has been used as an office, however, at 11'11" x 10'1" still offers a good bedroom size, this room also has built in wardrobes. Conveniently, the cloakroom, WC is right next door which also has a shower.
STEP OUTSIDE The mature gardens extend out to the side of the property, which allows those lovely views to be enjoyed, there are large lawn areas and large borders filled with mature shrubs and plants. To the lower point of the garden there is a handy garden shed and the gate which takes you into the village orchard. There is a large terrace off the back of the property, perfect for enjoying the view in the summer. It is a sunny spot too, so there is an electric awning for the hotter days. There is also a greenhouse on the upper part of the garden.
