SITUATION An historic cottage approaching 300 years old located in a tranquil hamlet a short drive from Yelverton, offering approximately 2 acres of attractive gardens with paddock and annex potential. 

DESCRIPTION An enviable four bedroom detached Dartmoor cottage nestled in a small tranquil hamlet, only five minutes drive from Yelverton and a short walk to the open moors. This charming cottage, which is not listed, is believed to have been built over 200 years ago with local granite masonry and later extended on both side elevations in the 1980's. The current owners have improved the property considerably since purchasing the cottage in 1998 including installing oil fired central heating, updating the electrics, complete re-plumbing and general refurbishment. The gardens are a particular feature and extend to approximately 2 acres separated by a moorland stream called "Blackbrook" creating a lovely ambience and connected by wooden bridges. To the side of the cottage is a parking area, single garage and workshop plus further useful outbuildings in the grounds. The accommodation comprises garden room, kitchen/dining room, sitting room, hall, bedroom three/study, bedroom 4, lobby and utility. To the first floor is the master bedroom, bedroom two and bathroom.
