SUPERBLY POSITIONED in a RIVERFRONT location enjoying STUNNING UNINTERRUPTED VIEWS, a spacious SEMI-DETACHED CHARACTER COTTAGE with three/four bedrooms, two/three receptions and SOUTH FACING GARDENS bordering the river. NO ONWARD CHAIN
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Superbly positioned in a riverfront location on the tidal shoreline of the River Tavy estuary and enjoying stunning uninterrupted views along the river and countryside beyond, a spacious three/four bedroom two bathroom semi-detached character cottage with two/three reception rooms and a wealth of period and interesting features. The south facing gardens border the river and make the most of its fabulous position.
This charming property was originally two separate cottages, the first a much older cottage, rustic and full of character and the second Victorian in age with larger proportions, higher ceilings and sash windows, which have been cleverly combined to provide a spacious home with versatile accommodation set over two floors.
The cottage is offered with no onward chain and is peacefully situated on the river with no passing road traffic in the highly desirable Devon village of Bere Ferrers and within easy reach of the village amenities and transport links.
