Available on the open market for the first times since it was built in approximately 1935 for a retired fisherman of Gorran Haven. Oakroyd is a detached bungalow tucked away off the main road, nestled in a small valley, moments away from the beach and stunning coastline of Gorran Haven. Village amenities such as a grocery shop, takeaway, hairdressers and coffee / cake shop are mere yards away. It sits in a good size plot screened by mature trees and shrubs, with ample off-road parking and lawns to the front. To the rear, which faces south, there is a lovely tranquil mature garden with plenty of terraced areas to sit and also a detached outbuilding, ideal for gardening tools. The gardens are private and not overwhelming in size so therefore easy to maintain.
