Description -

Standing in the heart of a quiet rural hamlet in the rich farming belt of West Devon, this double fronted semi-detached cottage has evolved from the joining of two former Duke of Bedford model cottages into one charming country property.

Built in 1858 by the Duke of Bedford to house miners at the near by quarry at Mill Hill - which is where the floor and roofing slates came from - each cottage cost £96 to construct. It's believed in the mid 1980's the cottages became one dwelling.

The accommodation now extends to over 1300sqft and is well laid out & proportioned. It also retains many period features including beamed ceilings, slate; oak & tiled flooring plus original joinery all adding to the ambience of the cottage.

The delightful gardens and grounds extend to approx. 1/7th of an acre. An enclosed rear courtyard garden with an old stone outhouse gives way to the  main garden which is level, private and  beautifully landscaped with mature trees, flower beds and patio areas stretching some 90' to a Devon hedge boardering fields.
