SITUATION A sublimely located country cottage bordering open moorland and the stunning river Walkham offered with approximately 18 acres, annexe, stables and outbuildings. 

Buckland Monachorum provides public house and church, whilst the market town of Tavistock, 8 miles distant and Plymouth, 13 miles, collectively offer extensive educational, recreational, cultural and shopping facilities. 

DESCRIPTION Enviably located within the Dartmoor National Park, forming part of the Walkham Valley, a modest detached cottage built we understand originally as two miners cottages in the 1800's which were extended in the 1970's creating a versatile and secluded home for a select buyer. The curtilage of land is 18.31 acres including established formal gardens with ponds, woodlands, and riverside meadow with fishing rights. The cottage is situated down a private tarmac track which crosses over open moorland and in turn leads down to this beautiful hidden location away from any main thoroughfare but a short convenient drive from Buckland Monachorum, Yelverton, Tavistock and Plymouth City.
The house provides scope for considerable refurbishment and benefits from no onward chain and we understand is not listed creating opportunity for further development. The accommodation comprises of four bedrooms in total including, in the cottage, two spacious bedrooms, one with en-suite, bathroom, study/3rd bedroom, 2 reception rooms, kitchen with an unusual cellar/larder, utility room, dining room, large conservatory and further adjoining large living room which is ideal for entertaining. There is a separate self-contained annexe with a sitting room/kitchenette, double bedroom, en-suite, garage & adjoining tack room, together with stables, workshop/garage and further outbuildings.
