Very pretty COUNTRY COTTAGE in a stunning RURAL setting, adjoining picturesque Flete Estate and not far from the COAST. Three bedrooms. Lots of ORIGINAL CHARACTER features. RANGE cooker and OPEN FIRE. DOUBLE GARAGE and LOVELY GARDEN. 

DESCRIPTION Bridge Park Cottage is a delightful property built by the owners of adjoining Flete Estate in the Arts and Crafts style, to a design by the well known Victorian architect Norman Shaw. The property presents excellent accommodation with much character and is particularly flexible, providing up to four bedrooms or three reception rooms, plus a super 'farmhouse' kitchen dining room. The property sits in woodland on the edge of Flete Estate and attracts abundant wildlife. There exists excellent potential for a substantial extension to the rear (as carried out by the neighbouring property). 

SITUATION Goutsford is one and a half miles from Modbury, which is a picturesque Georgian town situated in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', and is only about 4 miles from the nearest beach. Some two hundred years ago it was extremely prosperous being the local market town and a centre for the wool trade. Today there is a good range of local shops including a butcher, baker, grocers, hardware store, chemist, delicatessen and a number of gift and antique shops. Other amenities include a primary school, health centre, dentist, veterinary surgery, mobile library and Lloyds Bank. For more comprehensive shopping, Kingsbridge is to the South and Plymouth is about 12 miles to the West. Modbury is on the main bus route and is also only about five miles from the A38. Nearby there are fine cliff top and coastal walks, other beaches and coves, with sailing at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, 18 hole golf courses at Thurlestone and Bigbury and Dartmoor National Park is a few miles to the North.

KITCHEN/DINING ROOM Super 'farmhouse kitchen' with a Sandyford Classic oil-fired Range cooker (also serves central heating and hot water systems). Attractive fitted base and wall units combine with polished granite or oak worksurfaces.

Attractive tiling to the floor and hand made wall tiles complete the picture. Door to Walk In Pantry Cupboard and doors to Stairs and Sitting Room.

GUEST SUITE On the ground floor, and ideal for those with little mobility, is a super bedroom with lovely views of the garden with adjoining en-suite shower room with wc, wash hand basin and Mira Sport shower. Equally useful as a further reception room if a ground floor bedroom is not required; it has made an excellent dining room when required.
