Situated five miles from the A30 dual carriageway allowing easy access, but still very much a rural location and set in some of West Devon's most picturesque countryside, Ashmill is a small hamlet on the outskirts of Ashwater, overlooking the pretty meandering River Carey and benefitting from a community shop and Post Office, open seven days a week. The village of Ashwater boasts an independent freehouse known as The Village Inn, village Primary School, village hall and 13th Century Church. In addition, the North Devon/Cornwall coast is approximately 22 miles away, whilst the edge of Dartmoor National Park is approximately 14 miles away. A more extensive range of amenities can be found at the nearby towns of Holsworthy, Launceston, Okehampton and Tavistock.

A fine, characterful, detached Grade II listed cottage, which is presented in very good condition and successfully combines original period features with contemporary finishings, along with a lovely cosy cottage feel.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises: a well-appointed, country-style kitchen, with a triple aspect, a modern fitted kitchen, with integrated appliances and oil-fired Rayburn. A spacious, yet cosy, open plan split-level sitting/dining room with inglenook fireplace with bread oven and housing a contemporary multi-fuel burner, limestone floor and original ceiling timbers; a generous utility room, with oil fired boiler, which provides central heating and hot water. There is a rear porch with door to the rear garden, with further door to a well-positioned cloakroom.

To the first floor is a landing; two double bedrooms and an impressive bath/shower room. There is also a useful mezzanine area, accessed via a separate staircase, which could be used as a study/playroom or occasional sleeping area.

The cottage sits in a good-sized plot, which is accessed via a double-gated driveway, providing off-road parking for 2 to 3 cars. From here, an original cobbled pathway leads to the kitchen door and front entrance door.

We are delighted to be appointed as sole agents for the sale of this excellent property and viewing is highly recommended.

To the rear is a delightful, landscaped garden with two large, level areas of lawn and pleasant patio seating areas, and a well-built garden store, with outside power points and outside water tap.

A very short distance from the cottage is a gated paddock, measuring approximately 1/3 of an acre, with river frontage, ideal for growing fruit and veg, poultry etc, or alternatively just simply relaxing and enjoying the sights and sounds of the River Carey and surrounding countryside.
