Description

South brent The moorland village of South Brent stands in the valley of the River Avon under the southern foothills of Dartmoor National Park and on the northern edge of the lovely South Hams, fifteen miles from the centre of Plymouth.

The village is one with a strong community with three churches, one of which dates back to Norman times, a primary school and a wide variety of shops. There are well-regarded community colleges at Totnes and Ivybridge, approximately eight and five miles distant respectively, and both towns offer a comprehensive range of facilities for the wider community. Some of the finest beaches on the south coast, along with the South West Coast Path, are all within easy reach.

Situated just off the A38 Expressway, the village is well placed for quick access to Plymouth, Torbay and Exeter for which there are regular bus services. Rail services can be found at Ivybridge, approximately five miles distant, offering services to Plymouth, Totnes, Newton Abbot, Exeter St David's and on to Bristol, Cardiff and London.

Sanctuary housing The property is freehold, but part of a Sheltered Housing Scheme. Buyers must be 60 years of age or over and potential buyers will meet the Scheme Manager who lives on site. Payable annually is a peppercorn rent of £1 and a quarterly service charge of approximately £370. This covers a management fee, maintenance of common areas, maintenance of the communal lounge and a sinking fund for emergencies. Benefits include 24 hour on-call service, for which the bungalow is equipped with pull cords in all main rooms, and use of the communal lounge.

Accommodation Located at the head of the green in Shipley Close, the property is accessed via a storm porch with a useful bin store/storage cupboard and providing shelter at the front door which leads to the Entrance Hall with a recess providing coat hanging space, a loft hatch and an airing cupboard housing the boiler. The Sitting Room is a good size and, although may benefit from some redecoration, appears generally well-maintained. An open aspect leads through to the kitchen which was newly fitted approximately seven years ago with minimal to no use in the intervening period. There is a window to the front overlooking the green and the room is fitted with a range of wall and base units with work surfaces over and cupboards and drawers under incorporating a stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, space for fridge/freezer, washing machine and cooker (all of which may be available by negotiation). The Conservatory is accessed via the sitting room and enjoys a lovely outlook onto the rear garden.

The Bedroom is a very good size has a window to the rear and is fitted with a range of built-in bedroom furniture including wardrobes, drawers and bedside cabinets. Finally, the Shower Room is also well-proportioned with a frosted window to the front, a shower cubicle, low level WC and a range of fitted cabinets along one wall providing excellent storage and with an inset hand basin.

Outside, the garden is mainly paved providing excellent low-maintenance. One border is planted with two apple trees and a range of other fruit bushes, whilst another has two varieties of clematis providing flowers at different times of the year. There is also a useful garden shed.
