Full Details

Hilltop offers a fantastic opportunity in the right hands. It is nestled in a quiet and secluded spot on the edge of this lovely Mid-Devon village and although it is in need of modernisation throughout, there is plenty of room to add value here by just improving the already large detached bungalow and create an annexe without needing to extend if this is required.

The extended accommodation reaches 162sqm / 1,750sqft (excludes the garages) and offers flexibility within its four double bedrooms and four reception rooms/areas. There is a main living room with open fire and opening to the conservatory with views over the gardens and a 2nd sitting room which adjoins a bedroom – ideal for a dependent wanting their own space. We also have a spacious kitchen breakfast room with opening to the dining area, plus a boot room/utility as well as a bathroom and a shower room. There is oil-fired central heating and double glazing, with many of the rooms enjoying large windows offering natural light and a lovely outlook with gardens to the South and fields beyond the garden to the West.

Outside: The plot extends to 0.74 acres in total, with ample parking for 10 cars off the private lane, plus a detached double garage (light & power) and a further single garage sized outbuilding used for the ride-on mower, garden tools and storage.

There are gardens to the front, rear and both sides with the largest garden facing South, with privacy to the lawns given by mature trees and hedges. There is also a large fishpond, greenhouse and summer house which would make a lovely garden office once improved.

PLEASE NOTE – There is a collapsed drain, a quote of £2,800 + VAT has been obtained, which can be provided to any potential purchaser.

Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

ZEAL MONACHORUM is situated 8 miles northwest of Crediton, hidden within vast and tumultuous farmlands. Its name is of Latin origin ‘Cella Monachorum’– meaning ‘Cell of the Monks’. Like many Devon villages Zeal is home to a number of period properties, and buildings that have a strict conservation status – preserving the traditional beauty expected from rural settlements. Its church is old (understatement) (1235, late Saxon) and in its yard is a yew tree rumoured to have experienced a 1000 birthdays or more (not that anyone celebrates). The village is also known for having the most family friendly inn around, ‘The Waie Inn’ – offering great food & drink, both outdoor and indoor children’s play areas, a heated swimming pool, skittle alley, large function rooms (for weddings, parties etc), an astro turf pitch, squash courts, fishing lake and B&B rooms

DIRECTIONS: Use EX17 6DL – Hilltop’s driveway is the first on your left after turning down Beer Lane.
