Full description

Tenure: Freehold

SITUATION For those who love Dartmoor, Throwleigh is a very sought after village, easy to get to yet exceptionally quiet and close to the open moor. It has an ancient granite church with the little country inn, the Northmore Arms, and the village hall approximately 1/2 mile away. Most everyday needs can be catered for in Chagford where there is a comprehensive range of shops and other facilities including bank, inns, a primary school, medical, dental and veterinary practices, churches and a good range of sporting activities. All major requirements are catered for in the cathedral city of Exeter, approximately 18 miles away or Okehampton just 8 miles distant.
Despite the deeply rural nature of the property, access to and from other parts of the country is remarkably good with access at Whiddon Down to the A30 dual carriageway, and therefore the motorway and rail networks, about three miles away.

DESCRIPTION Beech Cottage is a single storey dwelling which was probably built in the 1920's. With dressed granite and timber elevations, the property has a warm and comfortable atmosphere usually associated with buildings of an older period. The property has a spacious entrance hall which could be used as an additional study or dining area and a central kitchen with a red Aga stove and rooms leading off for sitting and dining. There are three bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms. The gardens are level and enjoy a lovely outlook with paved seating areas from which to enjoy the views. To the front of the house is a large parking and turning area. Heating is from an oil-fired system, supplemented by a woodburner and the electric AGA.
