Old Manor Close, together with Amberley Close, forms a small, much favoured, residential area of detached houses surrounding an open green, just under a mile from the town of Ashburton. It lies within the southern boundary of Dartmoor National Park and the open moor itself is just a few minutes car journey away. Ashburton is a characterful town with an interesting range of shops and good local amenities including a primary school and South Dartmoor Community College. The town is located just off the A38 Expressway, between Plymouth and Exeter, both of which are within commuting distance of the property.

The Finches is a well designed detached house built in the late 1970's and offers spacious accommodation with two reception rooms plus an excellent conservatory overlooking the garden and a kitchen and separate utility.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms served by a modern bathroom and an extension to the rear of the property has created a ground floor bedroom/studio plus bathroom which would be perfect for an independent relative or as a home office/studio space.

The accommodation has been well cared for by the current owners, who have owned the property from new, and there is a gas fired heating system plus double glazed windows.

Outside, the property enjoys a private and attractively planted rear garden, with paved seating terrace and summerhouse. There is a driveway with parking for two to three cars plus a garage.

From the centre of Ashburton, proceed along North Street and at the end of the road bear left over the bridge signposted for Widecombe. After about half a mile, turn left into Holne Cross and then right at the next crossroads (Hele Cross). Old Manor Close will be found after about one hundred yards on the right. Follow the road around to the furthest point and number 14 will be found at the bottom of the close on the right.
