A Victorian property with character and charm located in a cul-de-sac close to the centre of this delightful, moorland town
Dolbeare Road was constructed over a century ago and is located near the top of a cul-de-sac close to the Roman Catholic church. This small group of houses appear to be back to front, but when they were designed there were plans for a new service road at the front which never happened, so the main entrance to the house is at the rear and both the sitting room and main bedroom have lovely green, southerly views.
This is an imaginatively designed home full of character! Downstairs, leading off the main hall are the living room, which has a large bay window to take full benefit of the sun and a well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room with attractive stone chimney and recess for range. A door leads to a staircase and excellent cellar (we understand it is the only cellar in the road), perfect for installing a train set! The modern bathroom and separate WC are conveniently placed off the rear hall extension (with a flying freehold above them) and there is access to the large, single garage from this hall, rare in Ashburton.
On the first floor are two bedrooms, one a double and the other a single. The main bedroom has a bay window and lovely southerly views over the garden. Off this bedroom is a recessed cupboard with window which could become an en suite shower room. The little room at one end of the landing was a WC which could be reinstated. On the top floor is an attic bedroom, converted around 40 years ago and complying with the building regulations of the time. This large room is ideal for a teenager.
Outside is a lovely, long and fairly level garden. South-south-east facing, this receives the full benefit of the sun (when it is out) and has been delightfully planted with many colourful flowers, shrubs and hedges and there is also a good expanse of lawn. (The A.38 runs along the far end of the garden and is screened for the most part by a belt of mature trees).
