Oakdene is a well appointed and spacious pre-war house offering bright and well proportioned accommodation with numerous very good quality features. These include an excellent modern kitchen with integrated appliances, a luxury bathroom/shower room, double glazing and gas central heating. A feature of the property is the originality such as delightful old fireplaces, picture and dado rails and original panel doors. Outside is a meticulously maintained garden with mature shrubs and gazebo, together with good sized parking area and garage.
To conclude; Oakdene is a most comfortable and appealing older style family house, extremely well cared for and much loved in a most convenient and accessible position.
Oakdene is set back from Plymouth Road, which provides close access to the A38 dual carriageway with fast links to Plymouth, Exeter and beyond. The property is a short walk from the centre of Buckfastleigh, an increasingly popular country town that has an interesting range of small independent shops, primary schooling, health centre, library and convenience stores. The larger market towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot are about 20 minutes drive and provide a wider range of shopping facilities, secondary schooling (also available at Ashburton and Ivybridge) and mainline stations to London Paddington. The property is situated on the edge of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park with fantastic opportunities for outdoor pursuits.
