IDYLLIC DETACHED COTTAGE with two bedrooms, 18ft sitting/dining room, COURTYARD GARDEN and DETACHED GARDEN, offering a perfect retreat within this historic WATERSIDE VILLAGE,
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An idyllic detached cottage providing the perfect retreat within the historic waterside village of Bere Ferrers. The village offers peace and tranquillity on the western banks of the Tavy River, while providing an active village social life, Quay, country pub and a small beautiful railway station which is part of Tamar Valley Line.
This home has been renovated in recent years and now benefits from notable character features, modern mains gas central heating and PVCu double glazing plus a wood burning stove. The contemporary kitchen and first floor shower room were replaced in 2018 which create a desirable mix between the old charm and new living space. It is understood the cottage was built originally in the 1800s and later extended, opening the ground floor up to have a kitchen, reception hall and cloakroom.
There is an attractive enclosed courtyard garden to the front of the home which has views over to the river between neighbouring properties. There is also a further secret garden a short walk from the cottage which harbours a vegetable, herb and fruit garden plus a useful 10'x 8' store and further log store. This area is again incredibly peaceful with views over the surrounding landscape and is an ideal spot to retire and unwind.
The accommodation comprises reception hall, cloakroom, sitting/dining room with an understairs cupboard, kitchen and to the first floor is a guest bedroom/study and a master bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and shower room.
Bere Ferrers is a rare village due to the fact you have to drive to it so it isn't affected by traffic passing through. A short 5 minutes drive away is the village of Bere Alston with a further connected train station, bus stops, supermarket, shops, post office, school, hairdressers, butchers, chemist and doctors' surgery.
