Located in a tranquil village a short distance from Dartmoor National Park, a charming and RECENTLY RENOVATED semi-detached COTTAGE, with one double bedroom and sitting room with woodburner. Successful HOLIDAY LET in 2021.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A desirable semi-detached cottage, which has been recently renovated, located in a tranquil and attractive Devonshire village, a short distance from Dartmoor National Park.

The cottage is the perfect 'bolt hole' retreat and offers a small courtyard front garden with space for seating and pot plants. This property has been a successful holiday let across last year. The home is not listed and dates back we assume to the 1800's. The property is warmed with modern electric heaters and a wood burning stove, which is sited in the original fireplace with a historic bread oven. The interior of the house has been modernised and the windows replaced with PVCu double glazing. There is no off-road parking with the cottage but we have been advised by the current owner that they have parked a small car at the front on the road. The property is entered through a porch and in turn into a sitting room with space for dining and potentially a study area by the stairs. This room has wood effect tiles and a deep sill window to the front courtyard. Stairs rise to the first floor with an understairs storage cupboard. An opening leads around to the modest kitchen which has been fitted with contemporary kitchen units, appliances and worktops and offers a further window to the front. The 1st floor feels spacious with a decent landing area and doors to both the double bedroom and shower room. The bedroom has two deep sill windows and a built in cupboard with hanging space and the hidden hot water cylinder. The shower room is a particular feature with side window and walk-in shower, stylish basin and a wc. There is also loft access from this room.

This charming cottage forms part of the historical heart of Milton Combe which has links with Sir Francis Drake who lived up the hill in Buckland Abbey. There is a bus service and the bus stop is yards from the door. The village also offers a community spirit and a renowned public house which is opposite to the house. A public footpath is also yards from the door which takes you out of the village and into beautiful areas of countryside. Yelverton is a village with a vast amount of amenities and is approximately five minutes away by car along with the expanse of open moorland within the Dartmoor National Park.
