In the HEART OF THE VILLAGE, a very well presented EXTENDED CHARACTER COTTAGE with two double bedrooms,

An extended character cottage nestled in the centre of the village with off road parking and extended gardens. Bere Alston, which is near the River Tamar, is a busy village surrounded by beautiful countryside with good walks and with adequate shopping and other facilities, including its own primary school. It is situated approximately six miles from Tavistock and sixteen miles from Plymouth. There is a regular train service to and from Plymouth and a regular bus service to and from Tavistock.

A very well presented mid terrace two double bedroomed character cottage built we understand in the early 1800's in the traditional manner and extended in later years to provide further accommodation. The current owners have lovingly refurbished the property leaving the character features such as the many beams and the fireplace with log burner and have renewed the roof with traditional slates. The property benefits from gas fired central heating, PVCu double glazing and generous loft insulation. The addition of central velux roof lights allows light to flood into central areas.

A particular feature of this property is the rear garden, larger than a tennis court, 'P' shaped and extending behind the three adjacent properties. It has been lavishly designed and planted with fruit trees, grasses, shrubs and flowers and has been the pin up garden in recent charity open day brochures. Specific areas of the garden provide for the vegetable grower, the flower arranger and the romanticist. There are several specific areas for the sun worshipper who can track the sun's rays throughout the day. There is gated parking for two or three cars.

The accommodation comprises a sitting room, kitchen/dining room, utility/cloakroom, two good size double bedrooms and a family bathroom which was once a bedroom.
