A rare opportunity to purchase a semi-detached three-bedroom character cottage requiring refurbishment with garage and garden, with a large stone barn and yard adjacent which may be suitable for development. Subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

An increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a three-bedroom semi-detached country cottage, ripe for refurbishment, with its own garden and single garage. Adjacent to the cottage, there is a large stone barn within its own yard, which may be suitable for development as ancillary or separate accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

Believed to date back in parts to the mid-19th Century, this characterful country cottage is located in a tranquil, rural setting along a private track, on the outskirts of the pretty moorland village of Peter Tavy, which nestles on the western flanks of the Dartmoor National Park and lies just four miles from the bustling town of Tavistock.

Tavistock is a thriving market town, fantastic for walking, cycling, and riding. This vibrant and friendly town hosts a wealth of restaurants and cafes selling locally produced food. Enjoy some shopping with the vast range of local independent shops, the pannier market, and award-winning farmers' market. Primary and secondary education both state and private is well catered for in local schools. The Meadows located in the centre of the town provides a children's play area, a bandstand, a sensory garden, tennis courts, bowling club and plenty of open space. Indeed, Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.

Plymouth is only 15 miles away with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol, and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.

Now requiring refurbishment and modernisation, the accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes a conservatory, spacious reception rooms, a fitted kitchen, pantry, and downstairs shower room. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and bathroom. The upstairs rooms enjoy pleasant views over the surrounding countryside.

The cottage is kept warm by oil fired central heating served by a recently renewed boiler and an open fire in the sitting room.   

Reference made to any fixture, fittings, appliances, or any of the building services does not imply that they are in working order or have been tested by us. Purchasers should establish the suitability and working condition of these items and services themselves. The accommodation, together with approximate room sizes, is as follows:


17'6” x 6'0” (5.33m x 1.83m)

Sitting/Dining Room
28'8” x 12'0” (8.74m x 3.65m)

Opposite the cottage, there is a single attached garage (one of a pair, Tanglin's is on the left) with recently replaced up and over door. Just beyond the garage, a path leads to the private, cottage garden, which is mostly level, partly walled and with a pleasant outlook, over the neighbouring fields.

Attached to the cottage, is a large stone-built barn currently used for storage but which, in our opinion, might be suitable for other uses in particular conversion for ancillary or separate residential use subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. The barn stands within its own concreted yard which provides easy vehicular access and ample space for parking and turning.

Barn 1
29'11” x 18'1” (9.12m x 5.50m)

Barn 2
24'6”x 17'7” (7.46m x 5.37m)

At present, the neighbours pay a nominal rent to the current owner allowing them to park in the yard in front of the barn, however we understand this arrangement will cease when the property is sold.

Mains electricity, mains water, private drainage. Oil fired central heating.

We understand this property is in E for Council Tax purposes.

Leave Tavistock via the A386, heading towards Okehampton. After approximately 1.5 miles, turn right towards Peter Tavy. Continue over Harford Bridge and on to the village. As you enter the village, turn left into the private track, which is on the left hand side, just behind Rose Cottage. Proceed to the end of the track and park in the yard in front of the barn.
