The property has views from the front garden across the edge of the village and part of the Tamar Valley countryside. The home forms part of a small mews of historical cottages which is away from any main roads making this ideal for those who enjoy peace and quiet.

The rear courtyard is a sun trap and is not overlooked but backs into a raised field boundary. The off road parking area is yards from the front elevation and offers space for a couple of vehicles. The interior of the home is well presented and comprises porch, open plan living/dining/kitchen with wooden staircase to the first floor where there is a landing with airing/linen cupboard, single bedroom, double bedroom and a bathroom with an electrical shower over the bath.
