A well presented TERRACED COTTAGE with a tasteful blend of CHARACTER and contemporary accommodation; 3 BEDROOMS; 2 reception; ENCLOSED REAR GARDEN; village centre location; easy access to the Dartmoor National Park.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION The property is situated in the heart of the sought-after Dartmoor village of Bridestowe, within close level proximity of the village amenities.

Bridestowe is a pretty West Country village situated at the head of the Lew Valley at the north western foothills of the Dartmoor National Park and surrounded by some of Devon's finest countryside. The village centre incorporates a well patronised general store, public house, church and primary school.

The A30 dual carriageway to Exeter and the M5 is approximately 5 minutes from the property and the open moorland of the Dartmoor National Park begins just a mile from the village.

Okehampton lies on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park. It is approximately 30 miles from both the north and south Devon coasts. There are superb local beauty spots where one may enjoy walking, riding and fishing. The shopping area contains several banks and supermarkets as well as many interesting locally owned shops. Primary and secondary education is well catered for in local schools. The recreation ground and park contains, amongst other things, a covered heated swimming pool. Most sports are available including 18 hole golf course, squash courts, indoor rifle range and thriving rugby and soccer clubs.

A well presented characterful terraced cottage believed to have been built in the mid 1700's and is of predominantly stone with some cob construction. The property has undergone a number of substantial improvements in recent years including double glazed windows to the front. The accommodation, which is well appointed throughout, briefly comprises entrance porch; sitting room with stone-built feature fireplace and fitted woodburner; an excellent family style kitchen/dining room with oil-fired Rayburn. A recent addition to the property is a glazed roof sun room with doors to garden; rear porch with cloakroom and undercover utility/storage area. To the first floor is a landing with doors leading to three bedrooms, all of good proportions, and a family bathroom. There is oil-fired central heating which is powered by the Rayburn within the kitchen. To the rear of the property is a small courtyard with wood store and storage/utility area. From there are a small number of steps leading up to a further good size lawned garden with an extensive area of decking and a pergola. We are delighted to be appointed as sole agents for the sale of the property and viewing is highly recommended.
