Lapford is one of the larger Mid-Devon villages and has good links to the A377 and some wonderful countryside views. It lies on the south side of a hill so many of the homes here benefit from the southerly aspect with plenty of sun and some beautiful views to Dartmoor. There is a great local pub, local shop/petrol station and a railway station on the popular Tarka line with trains to Barnstaple and Crediton/Exeter.
The house is a 3 bedroom mid terrace house which has been upgraded by the current owners to create a bright, spacious family home which is energy efficient and offers terrific space for the money. As well as being neutrally decorated and leaving little for a new owner to do, there is also an energy efficient heating and cooling system installed which is run by the air source heat pump, meaning no radiators and no oil/gas consumption. This works similarly to how underfloor heating works but can also cool! There is cavity wall and loft insulation plus double glazing throughout.
The layout is traditional with a porch/hallway opening into the living room (with wood-burner) and to the kitchen/dining room which has just been replaced with modern units and appliances. There is a rear access hall with door to outside and a useful study and WC (ideal for families and those wishing to work from home). On the first floor are 3 bedrooms (2 of which take in the lovely views to the front) and a family bathroom.
Outside, the front garden is a good size with a central path/steps through the lawn to a decked seating area (south facing). Due to the location, the front garden is very useable and, being elevated, provides a great entertaining area. At the back, there is an enclosed paved area directly to the rear of the house (ideal for families and those with pets) and then a shared path runs along the back to the rest of neighbouring houses. Across the path and up a couple of steps, there is a further lawned garden with a raised seating area. There is a choice of gardens to pick from here! At the front, the parking is on the street (it’s a no through road) and there is a further area of allotment which is included in the sale and could be utilised to create off-road parking if desired (there are restrictions on materials that can be used so please be aware of this and ask agents for more details).
Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

DIRECTIONS : From the A377 at Lapford Cross, proceed up into the village and pass the church on your left. Approx 100m further on, take a right turn at Orchard Cross and immediately bear right into Moorland View. No 11 is on the higher row of houses, to the left.
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.
