Sunnyville occupies a lovely situation backing onto green fields and with excellent views over Ashburton.

It is a tucked-away setting yet just a few hundred yards from the town’s excellent shop’s and amenities including post office, butchers, greengrocers, artisan bakers, fish deli, award winning delicatessen and numerous cafes/restaurants.

Ashburton lies on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park and the rugged landscape of the open moor is just a short drive away.

The A38 at Pear Tree brings the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter within commuting distance and the South Devon Coastline is around a forty minute drive away.

Sunnyville was built in around 1949 and has been in the same family ownership from new.

In more recent years the property has been enlarged and enhanced to provide spacious, well appointed accommodation.

Most rooms have views over the town or of neighbouring fields and countryside.

The windows have replacement PVCu double glazing throughout and there is a full gas fired central heating system.

Outside, Sunnyville is set at the end of a private drive, the first part of which is shared with neighbouring properties, and has plenty of parking.

From our office turn into East Street and take the first left into Stapledon Lane. Proceed for around 50 yards and the private driveway leading to Sunnyville will be seen on the right. Proceed up this driveway and the property will be found at the end on the left hand side.
