Full Details

Just outside of the village of Lapford lies Popes Lane, which once would have provided access directly to the village but these days is used from each end (except on foot) to access the properties along it. From the A377, a small lane leads to The Furrows, a detached and extended 3 bedroom bungalow in a superb plot with south facing views over the surrounding countryside. It’s somewhat of a hidden gem, being tucked away yet accessible and set in the large, gorgeous gardens.

Internally, there is plenty of room with 3 bedrooms and a modern shower room at one end and then the living room (with potential for wood-burner) and its large sliding doors to the garden. The well fitted kitchen provides ample space and it has been designed to fit in well with modern country living. There’s a dining room on the end which could be used as a 4th bedroom or even as an annex suite if the vestibule was converted into a shower room (stp) so there are options aplenty. There is modern uPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating (with modern tank) and mains drainage.

Outside: The amazing gardens (approx. quarter of an acre) are a real feature of the property and will suit those with green fingers. The gardens have something for everyone, pretty open areas of lawn, productive vegetable plots, fruit trees, very well established borders and beds and a fantastic south facing paved seating area from which to enjoy the gardens and views. The whole garden is incredibly well maintained and there are pathways for ease of access and year round use. There is a small stream at the bottom of the garden with a bridge over. In addition to the gardens, there are timber sheds, a greenhouse and a large garage (bigger than average) so there’s room for a vehicle and/or work space too. There is also gated off-road parking.

Note: The access lane to the property is unmade so please take care. There is turning space into the drive to be able to drive out again.

Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

LAPFORD is a large village, beyond Morchard Road on the A377 – 9 miles from Crediton and 16 miles from the City of Exeter. Like most Devon parishes, it’s not far from a lovely collection of trees – Eggesford Forest is just up the way, a regal coniferous plantation that plays host to variety of creatures including adders, butterflies, buzzards and woodpeckers (and badgers!). The village itself has a primary school with an excellent Ofsted report, sizeable playing fields (with a football pitch and kid-friendly playground) and a busy pub – The Old Malt Scoop Inn, once a 16th Century coaching inn – which now offers an à la carte dining experience, using only the best local produce.
