DESCRIPTION This charming period cottage was built in late 1800's with architecture believed to have been influenced by Brunel and is constructed mainly of granite. The cottage is part of the original social club serving the village of Cornwood. The property has many character features including exposed beams, roof trusses, granite quoins and deep oak topped window sills. Having been updated with uPVC windows to most rooms and economic electric heating throughout, the property has also been extended by its current owners and now boasts accommodation on 4 floors. In addition, there is a 2 storey granite and cedar wood extension complete with vaulted ceiling at the rear of the property. This spacious home offers both flexible and adaptable accommodation. 

SITUATION Cornwood is a typical Devon village with a Post Office, primary school, pub and church as well as a variety of clubs and societies for those who wish to join. Cornwood is within the Dartmoor National Park and all that has to offer including equestrian facilities with stunning landscapes and moors within easy reach. It is within half an hour of some of the South Devon beaches and of Plymouth City Centre and is only 10 minutes from the A38 Devon Expressway, Ivybridge and the Tesco's superstore at Lee Mill. Ivybridge is an expanding town, although still referred to as 'the village' by many locals, which has a good range of shopping facilities and a large, well respected Community College. Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb watersports in and around Plymouth Sound.
