SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A detached cottage located in the heart of this historic village on the Bere Peninsula with its own railway station and array of shops/amenities. The house is well presented and offers modern features alongside character. The home is warmed with a new central heating system and PVCu double glazed windows making the house perfect for everyday living and low maintenance. To the rear the house has a private garden/courtyard which could be utilised for off road parking subject to relevant permission. The property is ideally positioned for the shops in the village and is close to the primary school plus the pub and recently opened bistro café. We believe the cottage was built at the end of the Nineteenth/beginning of the Twentieth Century and has been extended in more recent years adding to the living space on both floors. There is a front door which opens to a sizeable hallway with space under the stairs. The living room opens to the dining room and in turn to the kitchen where there is a rear porch, larder which could be a utility room and a cloakroom. To the first floor are four bedrooms and a bathroom. The kitchen is a particular feature with modern appliances and fitted units along with a breakfast bar and side windows to Chapel Street.
This tranquil Devonshire village has been labelled a World Heritage Site and is perfectly positioned away from main roads. The village offers a rare local railway station which forms part of the Tamar Valley Line, connecting to the waterside village of Bere Ferrers and Calstock plus onto Plymouth City in around 20 minutes. There are also several shops including a post office stores with local bakery, two small supermarkets, butchers, hairdressers, café/restaurant, takeaway, pharmacy, doctors surgery, primary school, public house, bus services and a garage with petrol station.
Bere Alston is 15 minutes by car from both Tavistock and Yelverton and approximately one hour from Exeter. The surrounding fields of the village are peppered with public footpaths which have beautiful walks and views of the Tamar River and surrounding countryside. The Bere Peninsula is formed by the Rivers Tavy and Tamar creating a special secluded area steeped in history. Due to the rivers there are also public slipways and boat yards at Bere Ferrers and Weir Quay along with a gig club and excellent outdoor pursuit facilities.
