A DETACHED COTTAGE in a TRANQUIL SETTING, a sizeable GARAGE and gated DRIVEWAY, original garden STORE, GARDEN and PATIO with sunny aspect VIEWS down the valley. VIRTUAL 3D TOUR AVAILABLE

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Positioned on the edge of fields in a tranquil leafy lane which is away from main roads but only minutes from amenities in Yelverton and a commutable distance of 9 miles from Plymouth City. The property is offered with no onward chain and we believe the cottage was originally built in the 1700's (not listed) and later extended in the 1990 by a previous owner.

The garden of the property is to the front and to the side with a sizeable garage, original stone garden store and gated driveway along with a sunny aspect and views down the valley. The home offers potential but does require refurbishment and improvement with good size south facing elevations and character.

The accommodation comprises reception dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, large sitting room with an open fireplace and to the first floor are three bedrooms, two double and a single/study plus an en-suite shower room and bathroom. There is also a pull down ladder to the attic space which has a window and has been boarded which has potential as a play area etc. The home is warmed by electric storage heaters and PVCu double glazing. There is private drainage and mains water and electricity. There is no mains gas in the lane but there is scope for other energy efficient options. The house and grounds are private and on the edge of a small hamlet with two other substantial period dwellings.
