Milton Combe is a very attractive village situated on the edge of Dartmoor with a renowned viallage pub, some seven miles from Tavistock and eleven miles from Plymouth. The village of Yelverton, which has most facilities, is approximately two miles distant. The village is within easy commuting distance to the City of Plymouth and is within the catchment area for the very popular St. Andrews Church of England School at Buckland Monachorum.

DESCRIPTION A well presented detached barn conversion originally built we understand in the 1800's and converted in the 1990's creating an individual and contemporary reversed level living space. The current owners have installed further large velux windows filling the living rooms with extra light. A particular feature of the property is the tranquil location, level gardens and views, two large gated driveways with parking for several cars and potential for the equestrian enthusiast with a tack room and stable. There is also a useful summer house and detached double garage with electric at the end of the garden. The level south facing garden extends to approximately 1/3 of an acre following the meandering babbling brook with further views over the valley and surrounding fields. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a seating patio and specimen shrubs. The accommodation comprises a kitchen/breakfast room, living/dining room and snug/sitting room to the first floor whilst to the ground floor is a conservatory, three bedrooms, shower room and a family bathroom. This character home also benefits from oil fired central heating with a section of underfloor heating, wooden double glazed windows, Rayburn range cooker and feature dual sided wood burning stove creating a warm ambiance throughout the first floor. The current owners have also had a new roof in recent years.
