Located on the edge of the small village of Chawleigh (just 2 miles from the larger town of Chulmleigh), Blackwalls Lane is a no through road with just a handful of individual properties so it’s tucked away, quiet and with little passing traffic, plus it’s a short level walk into the village centre.
Robin Mead is an individual detached bungalow with a surprising amount of space. As such the layout is very flexible and it’s worth pointing out that it can be used as a true bungalow or as a chalet bungalow as there’s 2 bedrooms on the first floor or even incorporate an annexe to one end if desired. The ground floor bathroom includes a wheelchair accessable shower along with a bath. There’s oil fired central heating and uPVC double glazing throughout and the plot is easy to maintain with a large parking area to the front and paved pathways and a paved rear garden looking out over the village to the countryside beyond.
The hallway has plenty of storage, a WC and separate entrances to the principle rooms including a large living room which overlooks the rear garden, a separate dining room, kitchen and study. The kitchen has the original larder and again overlooks the south facing rear garden. A useful utility room (with the usual washing machine plumbing etc) links the kitchen to the back door and into the larger than average garage. Through the study/bedroom 4 (a corridor could split the study to make a private 4th bedroom) there is a ground floor bedroom with ensuite shower room with a door to the front. This area (bedroom, shower room and study) could be utilised as a small annexe area if required. There are 2 bedrooms on the first floor and plumbing is in place to create an upstairs shower room if required.
In all, this is a great bungalow with plenty of flexibility in an enviable village edge location and being sold with no onward chain.

It stands on high ground, beyond the Little Dart and Taw Rivers. It features a historic church, fashioned from stone in the early English style, with an embattled tower containing six bells. The village has two traditional inns and a post office/ shop. Eggesford station is only 2.5 miles away, where trains run north and south overlooked by sheer wooded valleys, a prominent feature of the area.
