Old Rectory Gardens is a winding residential cul-de-sac in the pretty village of Morchard Bishop. There is an active community here with clubs and societies, there’s a village shop/café, pub, church and primary school as well as sports fields and doctors surgery.
The property is a detached three bedroom bungalow on one of the larger plots in the cul-de-sac. It is in need of some cosmetic improvement but offers excellent potential to create a wonderful home. There is gas central heating via a newly fitted Worchester combination boiler and uPVC double glazing, plus room for a conservatory on the rear if desired.
The three bedrooms sit predominantly to the rear with a central corridor linking them to the bathroom with separate WC (most have been knocked into one). A kitchen/diner overlooks the front garden as does the living room with a large picture window.
Outside there is off-road parking for numerous vehicles on the long level drive which leads to the garage. There is access to the side (and through the garage) to the rear garden which measures approx. 20m x 8m (narrows a bit towards the end) and it backs onto fields. There is a selection of sheds and a greenhouse, plus planted beds and a large level garden to the front too, measuring approx. 20m x 8m, setting it nicely back from the cul-de-sac road.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

MORCHARD BISHOP is a village and civil parish set in the sumptuous hills and valleys of Mid-Devon, halfway between the North and South of the County, 7 miles west of Crediton and 14 miles from the regional capital, Exeter. The showpiece is the spectacular 16th Century Church of St Mary's, one of two churches in the village. This small but thriving community, with a population of just under 1000 has a primary school, doctor's surgery and local shops. Those who lead an active lifestyle can take advantage of the football, netball and outdoor tennis clubs as well as enjoying a game of bowls on the Green. At the centre is the friendly London Inn, loved for its generous servings of delicious, locally sourced food. Dating back 400 years, this traditional pub was once a stop for passing coaches when the main road from Exeter ran through the village. Today, the nearby railway station at Morchard Road carries passengers from Exeter to Barnstaple along the scenic Tarka Line. Dartmoor and Exmoor, areas of outstanding natural beauty are within 30 minutes' drive.
