SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An idyllic setting within the Dartmoor National Park on the open market with no onward chain.

An extended detached cottage believed to have dated back to the 1800's backing onto farmland with distant views over a beautiful wooded river valley nestled in a small hamlet which is only a short drive away from amenities in Yelverton, Plymouth and Tavistock.

The home offers a detached garage which was built in the 1980's which includes internal workshop with a brick paved driveway at the front providing further off road parking for two vehicles. The driveway is flanked by an attractive courtyard with a converted piggery which has potential for home office, modest ancillary accommodation and or hobby room.

The gardens are a particular feature with lawns, meandering paths, seating terrace, shed and established boundaries and shrubs. There is also currently a dog pen with a connected stone outbuilding which was once a garden toilet. At the top of the garden are some fruit trees and what was once a veg/fruit garden. There are two greenhouses and a shed ideal for further storage. The views from the rear look over the Walkham River Valley with a sunny westerly aspect and an enviable sense of space and serenity.

The cottage was also extended at the rear in the 1980's and then again by the current owner in 2010 creating a sizeable kitchen/dining/living area with doors and windows out to the rear garden, views and western aspect. Included in part of the extension was a useful utility/boot room which is also where the current owner has a small home office with storage above. The properties location is incredibly sought after and yards away from arguably one of the most attractive and historic stone bridges in the area which arches over the river.

The accommodation comprises hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining/living room, utility room, bathroom, three double bedrooms and a en-suite shower room. VT
