In a DARTMOOR VILLAGE SETTING a short walk from open moorland and village centre, an attractive COTTAGE with two bedrooms, two receptions, GOOD SIZE GARDEN and detached STUDIO CABIN. - 3D Virtual Tour Available
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A quintessential Dartmoor cottage enviably positioned away from the main thoroughfare in the heart of the village offering a South facing garden, notable character and a detached studio cabin with power and lighting.
We understand this attractive terrace of cottages was built at the turn of the century for the railway workers of Great Western Railway Line with much of the original charm still remaining. The property has been improved in recent years and now offers a further sizeable rear garden which was acquired in 2013. The cottage is a short walk from amenities and the open moorland of Dartmoor National Park with open views from both front and rear aspects due to there being no nearby adjacent properties creating a lovely sense of space.
The accommodation comprises porch, hall, sitting room, dining room and kitchen. To the first floor is a large main bedroom (which some in the terrace have turned in two bedrooms), further double bedroom and a bathroom. The cottage benefits from a mains gas boiler fitted in October 2016, partial PVCu double glazed windows and French doors, open fireplace, oak flooring, clever storage areas and scope for extension.
