This area of Crediton is popular with a wide range of purchasers with the plots being of a generous size, terrific views and of course, the potential to create further space in the loft as many in the road have. Although a semi-detached bungalow, its orientation to the attached neighbour feels very separate and the open nature of the front aspect definitely gives a feeling of space and light, being south facing. The town bus (607 Circular route) serves Longmeadows on a Tuesday and Friday to give excellent access to the town for those not wishing to drive or walk.
The bungalow is a bit dated internally but has clearly been very well looked after and is in very good condition. This allows a new owner to create a lovely home, suitable for their tastes and needs and also offers the flexibility to extend the accommodation into the loft which has been done in similar homes nearby to create 4 or even 5 bedroom properties. There is mains gas central heating and uPVC double glazing.
The layout gives a kitchen/diner to the front with amazing views over the town and surrounding countryside and has a second WC too. There is a living room which also takes in the views and the 3 bedrooms are at the rear, overlooking the rear garden. The bath has been removed and there is a large walk-in shower (room to reinstate the bath if preferred by a new owner) and has the usual facilities.
Outside, the front garden sets the bungalow back from the quiet road and has been designed for ease of maintenance, ideal for pots and tubs to add colour. There is driveway parking for 2/3 vehicles in front of the single garage with up and over door. The rear garden has areas of lawn and paving plus a garden shed, summer house and greenhouse and it backs onto (an occasionally used) sports field although there is a good distance of “wildlife buffer” between the boundary and the higher field which gives excellent privacy and a lovely outlook.

CREDITON : An ancient market town, with a contemporary feel – only a short, 20-minute drive NW from the city of Exeter. Set in the Vale of the River Creedy, amongst gentle, rolling hills and verdant pastures. Sincerely picture postcard. Once the capital of Devon, Crediton is famed for its inspiring sandstone church and for being the birthplace of Saint Boniface in 680 AD. Its high street is a vibrant place, abuzz with trade –artisan coffee shops, roaring pubs, a farmers’ market and bakeries, jam-packed with mouthwatering delights. For those commuting it has hassle free transport links into Exeter and for schooling a prestigious community college (Queen Elizabeth’s) – with an Ofsted “outstanding” sixth form. In addition, it boasts a brilliant gym & leisure centre for New Year’s resolutions, two supermarkets for the weekly shop and a trading estate for any practical needs. All neatly held in a single valley.
DIRECTIONS : From the High Street, proceed into Market Street, into the town square and out onto Parliament Street. Continue past the library along the one way street and straight across the junction to the mini-roundabout. At the roundabout turn first left, up Jockey Hill and then towards the top, turn right into Longmeadows. Follow the road and the property will be found on the left hand side.
