Village homes vary from the very old to the very new, this particular property covers the preferences of many buyers. It’s central village location is usually reserved for the older style property but in this case, the house was completed in 2011 as a one off design and offers fantastic character features in a modern, clean, light and comfortable way. There’s double glazing, oil central heating, a utility, ensuite, downstairs WC, all as you’d want in a family home. Combined with great levels of insulation, modern electrics and nothing for a new owner to do – it’s sure to be popular.
The house is private, being behind double gates to the parking/garden and a long established hedge. The entrance hall runs centrally with a large living room with double doors out to a paved terrace, ideal for the afternoon/evening sun and there’s an inglenook fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with a range of cupboards and appliances and a social breakfast bar provides informal eating space plus doors open onto the garden. There’s an adjoining dining room, which could also be used as an office or hobby room. A WC and utility room complete the ground floor and upstairs are 3 double bedrooms, the master having an ensuite shower room and the good sized family bathroom.
Outside, the garden sits mainly to the south with paved pathways allowing access all the way around the property. There’s lawns, planted beds and as previously mentioned, it’s very private. There’s flexibility on how to use the garden as the current owners tend to use the parking area (suitable for 2 vehicles off the road) as garden space and park outside of the gates but it depends on how it’s preferred.
In all, it’s a lovely property, in a great village with good room sizes, a great standard of finish and although modern, it’s still got character throughout.

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.
