This well-thought out and spacious family home with a flexible layout is located in the poplar village of Dunsford which is an easy commute of only 7 miles from the county capital of Exeter and the M5 motorway. Dunsford has an active community and is located just inside the Dartmoor National Park boundary in the picturesque Teign Valley. The village has a good range of amenities including a primary school (Ofsted: Good), pub, post office/village store, tea rooms and garage.

The surrounding area offers great opportunities for outdoor pursuits with some picturesque walks in the area including the upper Teign Valley riverside walk from Steps Bridge to Fingle Bridge and, if you still have the energy, on to Castle Drogo! The walks, pubs and Tors of Dartmoor are only a short drive away. There are several golf clubs in the area including nearby Teign Valley Golf Club. Haldon Forest provides miles of walking and cycling trails. The Devon coast and beaches are also not far away.

Dunsford has the benefit of being rural but is certainly not isolated, The village is well located for commuting to Exeter and also for access to the rest of the country via the M5 motorway at Exeter. There is a regular local bus service to Exeter where there is a mainline railway station with trains to London Paddington, around 2.5 hours distant. Exeter also has an airport flying to national and international destinations.


Built around 32 years ago Taradale is an attractive, spacious and flexible family home in its own individual level plot with accommodation extending to a generous 160 square metres over two floors. The property has a lovely rural outlook to the front and rear, especially from the first floor over the surrounding countryside.

A self-contained ground floor annexe could be created in the single storey section of the house where there is already an en suite bedroom and living room. An annexe kitchen could be situated in what is currently the study, as indeed it once was. The current layout briefly includes four bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms, a family bathroom, an open plan kitchen/dining room, spacious living room, snug, study, utility room and boot room.

Outside there is plenty of parking on the gated gravel driveway with well-maintained level gardens front and rear. The property has been very well cared for by the current owners who acquired the property when it was only a couple of years old.


A stable door opens to a hallway with doors off to the main reception rooms and from where stairs rise to the first floor. The open plan kitchen/dining room has plenty of space for a family dining table along with a comprehensive range of quality wood-effect storage units above and below granite effect work surfaces with an inset composite sink and drainer next to a window overlooking the garden, and an electric full size range cooker. There is space for an undercounter dishwasher and space for a recessed fridge/freezer. Off the kitchen is a useful utility room with further storage and space and provision for washing and drying machines and additional freezer. The central heating boiler is also here and a door opens to a boot room and the back door.

The living room can be accessed from the kitchen or hallway giving a good flow between rooms. This room has generous proportions and a triple aspect bringing in plenty of light. There is an open fireplace (currently not in use) in the chimney breast with a tiled hearth and surround and a painted wooden mantlepiece.

Off the dining room is a further reception room currently in use as a snug with a view over the front garden. Twin glazed doors open to the study where a further door opens to the back garden. Beyond these is bedroom two, a large ground floor double bedroom with en suite bathroom. Having a ground floor en suite bedroom can be incredibly useful but also, along with the snug and study could easily form a self-contained annexe (as it once was) for extended family or as an air B&B giving income potential.

Upstairs off the landing are three further bedrooms and the family bathroom. The main bedroom is a spacious double bedroom with plenty of space for wardrobes and other bedroom furniture and has a dual aspect to the front and side giving views over the surrounding countryside. A door opens to the large en suite bathroom fitted with a white suite including a P shape bath with shower over, wash basin and WC. Bedroom three is also a good size double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe, again with a dual aspect allowing for similar countryside views to the main bedroom. Bedroom four also has a built-in wardrobe and pleasant rural views to the rear. The family bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising of a bath wash basin and WC.

The front garden is mostly laid to lawn with shrub and flower boarders and a mature tree to the centre. There is a green house with a kitchen garden next to it plus two wooden garden sheds. A mature hedge to the front boundary screens the road and gives privacy, with wooden fencing on the boundary with the neighbouring property. A gate from the drive gives access to the secluded and private back garden. To the side of the house is a large fruit cage. The back garden is laid to lawn either side of a paved terrace, an ideal spot for garden furniture, with a pergola beyond. Gravel pathways run across the rear of the house. The rear boundary is fenced and lined with shrubs and mature trees with a field beyond.
