Glen Nevis is a lovely and individual detached bungalow, set in a quarter of an acre, found on the edge of Newbuildings, a small village just 5 minutes from the larger villages of Sandford and Copplestone with Crediton only 10 minutes away and Exeter Central just 26 minutes.
The accommodation extends to 117sqm/1,250sqft (excluding the garage) and includes three double bedrooms with an en-suite shower room (new in 2017) to the master, plus built-in wardrobes to the master and 2nd bedroom. The owners’ favourite room is the family bathroom (also new in 2017) and it is incredible! It has a double sized Jacuzzi bath (!) with its own TV, LED lights, fully tiled walls, WC, sink and heated towel rail.
The large living room is dual-aspect with fantastic rural views over farmland to the front and double doors lead to the dining room which adjoins the kitchen (integrated AEG gas hob, Bosch oven). There is great scope to create an open-plan kitchen diner here, which would be nearly as big as the living room! A lovely conservatory which overlooks, and gives access to, the rear garden is a great addition and to the rear of the garage is a utility room with a further sink and plumbing for a washing machine. The bungalow is uPVC double glazed throughout and has LPG gas central heating.
Outside: The 0.26 acre plot includes fantastic off-road parking for up to 8 cars, plus a garage. There are landscaped gardens to the front with those wonderful views and being fully detached, there is access to the rear garden from both sides. The rear garden is fully enclosed and private with large lawned areas, a fish pond with water feature, two handy sheds and a paved seating area for outside dining.

NEWBUILDINGS is a family-friendly, peaceful hamlet with characteristic thatched cottages and farmhouses in Sandford Parish, encompassed by rolling farmland and gentle sloping valleys. It lies 3 miles north west of the market town of Crediton, 2 miles east of the village of Copplestone and 10 miles north of the regional capital, Exeter. The A377 and Tarka Line that link Exeter and North Devon are within a few minutes' drive. Residents enjoy the plentiful walks across the luscious hills and experience awe-inspiring views, spreading to the horizon; if that isn't enough, the outstanding natural beauty of Dartmoor and Exmoor are a short drive away. For convenience, there is a local supermarket at Crediton and essentials can be picked up from the Copplestone village shop – a couple of minutes’ drive away.
SANDFORD is a civil parish and village 1½ miles north of Crediton, with a historic 12th Century Church. It has an old -world feel, with slender twisting streets, flanked by antique thatched cottages – displaying a menagerie of “Beatrix Potter” style perennial gardens. At the village heart sits a 16thCentury Post House, enshrined by creepers – this is now ‘The Lamb Inn’, an award winning pub/ restaurant; with a rustic aesthetic and cheerful spirit. Featured in ‘The Daily Mail’s – 20 Best British Country Pubs’ (2015). Across the way from here is the shop/ post office, run by the local community. Community is something that underpins every aspect of Sandford, including the local sporting events. Residents have a choice of things to do: such as joining the village cricket, tennis, football and rugby clubs. For the kids, Sandford has a highly sought after pre-school and a primary school (known for its classic Greek-style architecture). Older ones fall within the direct catchment for Q.E.C.C. in Crediton (with an Ofsted “outstanding” Sixth Form). Sandford is linked to Crediton via a footpath, then runs through the Millennium Green on the outskirts of the village – past a wildflower meadow, herb garden, over a crystal stream, yonder tilled fields to a little copse at the town’s-edge.
DIRECTIONS : From Crediton, proceed up Jockey Hill as if traveling to Sandford. As you descend the other side, you’ll pass the entrance to Creedy Park on your right and then bear left on the sharp bend as signed to Newbuildings. Follow the road until entering the hamlet of Newbuildings after approx. 2 miles. As you go through the houses, notice the left hand turn signed to Copplestone, ignore this turn but take the next right into a small unsigned lane. Proceed down the lane and you’ll see the driveway for Glen Nevis on your right.
