Whitchurch Village

Tavistock 1.5 miles

excess of 150,000 Freehold


Holly Cottage is a quaint detached village property, located on the Whitchurch Road, diagonally opposite the Post Office/ General Store. Built during the mid-nineteenth century as an estate cottage on the boundary of the former grounds of Whitchurch House, this compact property which is set over two floors requires comprehensive refurbishment.
The principal point of entry is via a stable door into a tenement containing the kitchen which enjoys a view over the garden and a bathroom/WC. Accessed from the kitchen is a sitting room which is enhanced by attractive double-bay windows, traditional exposed beams and an adjoining small glazed porch. Stairs lead from this space to two bedrooms, one double, the other single.
The property includes a 35’ level lawned garden and a stone-built outbuilding currently used as a utility space. At the opposite end of the cottage is gated off-road parking for a single vehicle and a garage which offers potential for conversion into additional living space subject to planning consent. New owners might also consider an extension over the current kitchen/bathroom tenement to enlarge this space whilst logically relocating the bathroom/wc upstairs.


The village of Whitchurch sits on the south-westerly edge of Dartmoor National Park which offers ample opportunities for lovers of the outdoors. The Whitchurch Inn is a popular watering hole with locals and visitors. There is an excellent regular bus service between Plymouth and Tavistock (a bus stop is located outside the property).
