SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An historic cottage offering character and period features which date back to the 17th Century with a rear courtyard garden and small parking area to the front. The home is Grade II listed and forms part of the attractive village centre of Buckland Monachorum. The home benefits from a wood burning stove positioned in the heart of the main living space and modern thermostatically controlled electric radiators which are connected to a 'Nest' smart control hub. Internally the cottage is light with a south facing front aspect and has high beamed ceilings for a property of this age.

The property has been used for holiday let over the years and we have been advised that can achieve a peak income of £750 a week.

The courtyard garden to the rear has a raised section which is paved and low maintenance looking out towards the church and backs onto a small brook. The village is sought after in the area and provides a primary school, bus service and The Drake Manor pub which is yards from the door. There are also wonderful country walks and the moors of Dartmoor are just up the road from the village. Tavistock is approximately 9 miles away and Plymouth City is also a commutable distance of around 10 miles. The accommodation comprises hall, sitting/dining room, kitchen and utility/porch with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. To the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Most of the rooms have deep window sills which ideal for further seating and space.
