Broadwoodwidger, Lifton Guide Price £875,000

An opportunity to purchase an individual new build detached house set on the edge of a popular village location with around 2 acres of land wrapping around the property with lovely views. This stylish newly build property features spacious accommodation which includes 2 en-suite bedrooms alongside extensive reception space including a impressively large living room alongside a dining room/family room and a sun room at the side.

The property is set in a popular location on the edge of this attractive village offering good access to the market towns of Tavistock, Launceston and Okehampton plus the bustling village of Lifton which is well served by local amenities. Just five minutes off the A30, between Launceston and Okehampton, which in turn provides access to the M5. The nearby spectacular Roadford Lake is surrounded by countryside and nestled amongst the beautiful surroundings of the Wolf Valley with the dramatic tors of Dartmoor as its backdrop, it’s hard to believe that the site of Roadford once housed a number of buildings and farms before it was selected as a site for a reservoir in July 1975. Completed in 1989, Roadford holds an astonishing 8,140 million gallons of water and offers great options for boating enthusiasts. The Reservoir has a surface of more than 730 acres (1.9 square miles) and is more than 130 feet deep, making it one of the largest inland waters in the South West. The water supplies North Devon and is also released into the River Tamar system which is treated and then supplied to Plymouth and parts of South West Devon.

The property is accessed via a sweeping driveway at the far end of the site, leading up to the property where there will be ample parking and turning space alongside a double garage. The accommodation features a spacious open entrance hallway which leads into an impressive living room with a window at the front, doors at the rear and a feature fireplace. The living room leads into the dining room/family room which could also be used as a home office with doors leading to the rear. The garden room is situated at the side of the property and also accessed via the living room and features wonderful views across the gardens and grounds and across the valley towards Brentor in the distance. The ground floor also features an open-plan kitchen and breakfast room and a cloakroom. The rear of the plot could be fenced to make a perfect paddock opportunity.

The first floor features a pleasant open galleried landing which has a useful recessed area idea for an office space. There are 4 generous bedrooms, 2 of which are en-suite which showers alongside the family bathroom. The property will have a new build architects certificate and there could be some scope for buyers to have some input into some of the finer details of the property, depending on at what stage of the build they are interested. There may also be potential (subject to planning permission) to possibly build a second annexed dwelling on the site and any buyers interested in that avenue are encouraged to discuss that option with the local planning authority.

Broadwoodwidger is a pretty village in West Devon with a village green and good access to the A30 with links to Plymouth and Exeter alongside Cornwall. The three surrounding market towns of Tavistock, Launceston and Okehampton all have schooling, thriving town centres and a range of facilities. The nearby village of Lifton is well served by local amenities including a shop, primary school, new village centre, doctors surgery and 3 public houses all with restaurants.
