SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A hidden detached cottage which is positioned down a private no through leafy lane, away from near neighbours and surrounded by rolling Devonshire fields on the Bere Peninsula.
The property requires updating and improvement but does benefit from period character and an established garden that extends to approximately half an acre which also require restoring to former glory. The garden is mainly to the south and west of the cottage with views over the landscape. We understand the house was extended in the 1950/60's and the original cottage potentially built originally 250 years ago. The home benefits from oil fired central heating and a open fireplace in the sitting room plus private drainage, mains water and electricity. We have been advised that there is good and reliable broadband and mobile signal from certain networks.
The cottage is on the edge of a village called Weir Quay which offers a boat yard with excellent mooring and public slipways into the Tamar River which is a short distance down the hill. The village of Bere Alston is also a short 20 minute walk from the house via a public footpath or two minutes by car, offering a GWR railway station, shops, primary school, garage and petrol station, doctors surgery and pharmacy plus a pub in both this village and Bere Ferrers nearby.
There is a parking area to the side of the cottage plus a five bar gate into the gardens halfway down the driveway. A pedestrian gate opens to the gardens and leads to the entrance. There are steps down to the lower garden with a stone wall boundary which backs onto the fields along with a log store that requires repair.
There are further steps up to a higher garden which would make a stunning area when landscaped again with a pond and Devon bank boundary. There is a shed and a summer house which again need work. A path runs around the property to a small area of garden which is flanked by the lane with a dense evergreen hedge for privacy and a pedestrian gate. There are lovely views from the main gardens in a southerly direction across fields which normally home to sheep. The two carriage GWR train runs along the bottom of this small valley and is the only occasional break in the serenity. The entire property is very liveable and would make an exciting project for the next owner.
