Description
Occupying one of the best positions at the heart of this picturesque west Dartmoor Village, a truly sublime period vernacular three bedroom cottage that charms in its traditional façade and its interior that opens onto a half an acre of near-level private, part-walled garden.
Believed to date from the late 19th century this detached house, was bought, at auction in 1974, and following the planning process, extended and comprehensively restored to its present layout in 1979 with the latter addition of the garden room.
The accommodation is set over two floors and entered via a small open porch with opposing benches. Here a beamed ceiling combines beautifully with stone walls and large fireplaces at either end of a 24’ living room. This leads into a dining room and that connects boldly, via a sunroom/conservatory with its garden. A large kitchen/breakfast room adjoins this space. This, in turn, leads into a utility room (with a cloakroom) and back door access to a large garage.
The accommodation upstairs is currently configured into a large master bedroom with dressing area and en suite bathroom and two further bedrooms served by a family bathroom. There is excellent potential for converting this layout to form four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The south facing garden is simply breath-taking in its views of surrounding moorland scenery and its rich plantings that define a sweeping level lawn. Further landscaped areas have created delightful spots in which to sit and enjoy beautiful view lines throughout the 0.56 acre garden.
