SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A former bakers shop and now character cottage in the Dartmoor National Park, built we understand in 1863 and situated in a convenient location in the centre of Horrabridge, offered with no onward chain. The property has notable character with an exposed stone fireplace with wood burning stove in the sitting room. The cottage now also benefits from a modern energy efficient Worcester combi boiler (mains gas) plus the windows are PVCu double glazed. Outside, the cottage has a courtyard garden at the rear which is ideal for table and chairs, pot plants and a rotary line. The cottage is a few yards away from the local shop/post office and the historic river bridge from where the village gets the name. There no off road parking with this home but there is ample on street parking close to the door.

We have been advised that the cottage was once a bakery shop with many locals remembering buying bread and cakes back in the day. The property is now a comfortable home comprising of sitting room, kitchen with a storage area under the stairs. To the first floor are two bedrooms (a double and a single) and a bathroom.

The village is increasingly popular with good commuter routes to Plymouth and Tavistock and an array of amenities including two pubs, village store, bakery, fish and chip shop, art gallery, church, school and plenty of outdoor spaces including parks and the moors.
