Dunchideock is a particularly popular village which is situated in the Haldon Hills, mid way between the cathedral and university city of Exeter and Dartmoor National Park. The village sits amongst peaceful Devon countryside, yet with the convenience of easy access to the city centre and the A38 and A30 dual carriageway which in turn provides access to the M5. There are sought after schools in the surrounding villages which are easily accessible. The university and cathedral city of Exeter is under 5 miles away and offers the majority of department stores, specialist shops and supermarkets. Dartmoor National Park is best known for its striking granite tors, steep wooded river valleys and heather covered moorland. Offering a wide selection of recreational opportunities such as walking, cycling, riding and fishing on the River Dart. Many of the region's finest beaches are within easy driving distance.


A covered porch leads to the hard wood double glazed front door providing access into the entrance hallway. The living room sits to the front of the house with a window overlooking the front garden. An attractive open fire with a wooden hearth with mirror over and stone surround creates a focal point and contrasts beautifully with the neutral decor and cream carpets.
