Morchard Bishop is a pretty village, one of the larger villages locally and as such, there’s an active community and has a wonderful local shop, a recently refurbished pub, sports teams and primary school. There’s a regular bus service too with 5 buses a day to Crediton and Exeter plus a couple of miles away the train can be caught towards Exeter or Barnstaple (on the beautiful Tarka Line).
Located on a private drive (serving just 4 properties) and at the end of the cul-de-sac, is this lovely link detached bungalow (adjoined only by its garage to the neighbours garage). Unusually it sits in a third acre garden (which extends to both sides of the lane in front of the property) which is full of established shrubs, bushes and trees which adds privacy and plenty of wildlife visitors.
The bungalow itself has been well kept but is dated internally, however there is oil fired central heating and double glazing throughout. It’s worth noting that with the size of the garden, extending is a real possibility (subject to the necessary permissions) and a new owner could go out as well as up, as the neighbour has. There’s currently a generous living room with the views over the gardens, two double bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen plus an attached garage. In front of the garage is parking for 2/3 cars and further parking could be created if required.
The gardens are a real feature with lawns, well stocked and well established beds, paving and seating areas. In addition to the main garden to the rear, side and front, there’s also the further garden to the opposite side of the access lane. This means the owner has complete control of their own outlook and adds another area for those with green fingers!
The bungalow is being sold with no onward chain.

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.
