Hitting the market for the first time in nearly 30 years, Little Bowden is a gem in the Devonshire countryside. First to mention are the views - few houses will have such a beautiful rural outlook this close to a village. The outlook is to the south so the garden and house get plenty of sunlight. Located just half a mile from the sought after village of Tedburn St Mary with it’s shop, post office, primary school and pub, it’s a fantastic location. Add in the fact its only 5 minutes drive to the A30 and there’s secondary school transport passing the door, it’s a superb proposition for many.
The property started life as a bungalow but extensions out and up over the years have created a wonderful, flexible family home that can be used as a house or indeed, revert back to being used as a bungalow. Internally, on the ground floor, the property has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and off the farmhouse kitchen is a useful WC and utility room. It would be easy to use one of the bedrooms as a living room if an owner preferred to live on one level. Upstairs is a large living room which runs the length of the original property and offers terrific space. It maybe possible to gain permission to put a further window to the south to increase the views from here even more. Oil fired central heating and double glazing are in place, as is borehole water and private drainage.
Outside, the plot extends to approx. half an acre which slopes to the south. The driveway gives ample parking for a number of vehicles and a garage with store to the side also has a room over which would suit a number of uses. To the south side, a terrace runs along the front taking in those breathtaking views and steps lead down to the lawned garden and vegetable plots. The entire plot is bordered by fields and the country lane and the high hedges give privacy without being isolated. A rare chance to own a house/bungalow in this position.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

Tedburn St Mary is a village located a short drive from Exeter down the A30 (7 miles), and 5 miles across country from Crediton – through winding lanes. Its backdrop is that of high slopes, rounded hillforms and narrowing valleys. For everyday necessities there is a traditional village shop and for the kids a wonderful little primary school. If boredom ever strikes Tedburn presents a wide array of things to get stuck into, including: a drama group and a football club. Need to practice for the Ryder Cup? Or just unwind – ‘Fingle Glen Golf Hotel’ is nearby with an 18-hole golf course and luxurious accommodation. For some dramatic walks, ‘Fingle Bridge’ is only 6.2 miles away. Here the Teign River splashes and whirls its way over mossy boulders, through the middle of a precipitous, wooded gulley on the fringes of Dartmoor. Think: ‘The Lord of the Rings’, much of Dartmoor has been inspirational in the approach to ‘Middle Earth’ by the famous “Lotr” concept artist, Alan Lee.
