This charming home has been refurbished and much improved over recent years whilst retaining a wealth of period and interesting features and is a real credit to the current owners.

You enter the cottage via the light and airy conservatory which enjoys the lovely outlook towards Chimney Rock and continues open plan into a generous triple aspect dining room overlooking the rear garden together creating a truly impressive quadruple aspect reception area with exposed wooden flooring and doors leading out onto the gardens. Access from here to the good-sized sitting room with the continuation of the exposed wooden flooring and having a feature stone open fireplace with cast iron multi fuel burning stove and exposed beams. Granite steps lead to the characterful kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a bespoke wooden kitchen and a feature stone fireplace currently housing the range cooker. This room has quarry tiled flooring and exposed beams off of which is a useful utility room with space for automatic washing machine. The ground floor is concluded with the dual aspect bedroom 3/study with ensuite W.C.

On the first floor are two generous double bedrooms both enjoying the views, one with superb, vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and 'A' frames and a fireplace with exposed stone walling. There is a useful airing cupboard off the landing and the accommodation is completed with a superbly refitted family bathroom with period style four-piece white suite including a claw foot roll top bath and separate shower cubicle with both fixed and flexible heads.

Outside there is a tarmac driveway providing off road parking for 2 vehicles and leads to the detached garage which has power and lighting and currently used as a workshop. The front garden enjoys the far-reaching Tamar Valley views and is completely enclosed by wooden fencing and gravelled for low maintenance.

The rear garden is again completely enclosed and gravelled for low maintenance borders by raised beds and to one side is a wooden decked area providing an ideal space for outside dining and enjoying the sunshine.
