SITUATION A truly unique period cottage situated in the Dartmoor National Park offering elevated stunning rear aspect views and gated off road parking.  

Horrabridge is an attractive village situated 9 miles from Plymouth and 5 miles from Tavistock. It provides shopping facilities and there is a primary school. There are regular bus services to both Plymouth and Tavistock. 

DESCRIPTION A period character cottage built we understand in the early 1800's which was for many years the dairy for the village. The house has beautiful light rooms enhanced from a southerly aspect with doors leading out onto a newly created sizeable balcony which overlooks the river Walkham Valley. The gardens slope down to the river for a good distance and therefore makes the cottage completely safe from flooding. The lower garden offers further seating areas ideal for entertaining and enjoying the tranquil extended views down the river. The current owner has advised there are fishing rights and has photos of some good size salmon which have passed along the river Walkham. There is also the added benefit of a gated parking area for a car flanked by a useful workshop/store on the side boundary. The accommodation comprises of entrance lobby, sitting room, sun room (occasional bedroom 3) store/utility, living/dining room and kitchen. To the first floor is a good size landing with a reading area, bathroom and two double bedrooms. The cottage is warmed by two woodburning stoves, mains gas central heating and PVCu double glazed windows with more recently fitted PVCu double glazed sash windows on the rear elevation.
