Moordown was built in the 1930s in an elevated position overlooking a valley and with super views to Hingston Rock and the surrounding countryside. The house is fully double glazed and centrally heated by mains gas. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall, a sitting room with an open fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen with a walk in larder cupboard, a utility room and a w.c. on the ground floor. Upstairs is a landing, a bathroom and one single and two double bedrooms. The gardens are on a hillside and terraced with granite retaining walls and features and various sitting spots from which to enjoy the views. Within the garden is a greenhouse, a block built shed and a single garage and a fuel and bin store built into the hillside. Fowlers strongly recommend viewing this house. It needs some modernisation but is a good, tried and tested family home.
