This stunning executive property offers a high-end finish and forms part of a select close of just six properties constructed around 20 years ago by quality house builder Dart Developments of Totnes.

The present owners have carried out numerous improvements during their time at the property including replacing all three bath/shower rooms and the cloakroom with superior, contemporary fittings.

At the heart of the property is an architecturally inspired staircase with spacious double-height reception hall and landing. The accommodation is perfect for entertaining with both the living room and kitchen having direct access to a large sun-deck overlooking the private rear garden.

Outside, a smart block-paved driveway gives access to an integral double garage with remote electric door. The gardens include a wide paved terrace adjoining the previously mentioned sun-deck, a good expanse of lawn with surrounding flowerbeds and access down to the River Mardle. There is also an enclosed courtyard-style garden which is an absolute sun-trap.

The River Mardle runs along the rear boundary and as well as providing a picturesque setting attracts a wide variety of wildlife.

Springfield Park is situated on the edge of the small town of Buckfastleigh, an historic mill town lying on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park. The town has a range of independent shops, cafes, pharmacy, small supermarket and good community activities combined with a primary school, health centre and easy access to the A38 for Plymouth and Exeter

Totnes lies approximately six miles to the south and has historic Elizabethan connections, a lively shopping high street, Morrisons supermarket, mainline railway station, secondary schools and the river Dart for water sports.

The Primrose Line of the South Devon Railway, a charitable trust-run organisation providing a glimpse of the past with its steam locomotives, can be seen from the rear of the property and operates principally in the summer months.
