Believed to be built pre 1570s, Rookery Brook Cottage has been sympathetically updated to a high standard by its current owners. The generous accommodation begins with the entrance porchway via the original oak door through to sitting and dining rooms, both with gorgeous open fireplaces and slate flooring. A door leads through to the superb refurbished farmhouse kitchen / breakfast room with built-in appliances, Belfast sink, Aga and separate WC, with the conservatory completing the ground floor. Rising to the first floor, via the granite staircase, you will find the dual aspect master bedroom with a contemporary style ensuite shower room, a further three good sized bedrooms and four-piece family bathroom suite.

Rookery Brook Cottage is approached by a sweeping hand-cut granite driveway which bridges the private stream at each end. There is ample parking space to the front and side of the property where you will find the double garage with studio above providing a number of uses. A main feature of the gardens is the tumbling moorland stream that passes through via a number of picturesque waterfalls. The current owner has extensively renovated the gardens trimming back the woodland, creating a number of paths and seating areas. There is also a small level grassed area either side of the stream, greenhouse with power available and a well positioned decking area to the rear of the cottage. The property and gardens are south facing with stunning, far reaching views through the Teign Valley.
