SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located close to the heart of the popular village of Milton Abbot and enjoying super views across open countryside.

The property lies opposite the church, close to the village hall and also within easy level walking distance of the Edgcumbe Arms Public House and the well regarded Milton Abbot County Primary School.

Milton Abbot is a small but attractive village located on the Devon/Cornwall order and equidistant from the popular market towns of Tavistock and Launceston.  

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted the winner of a nationwide survey undertaken by the Council for the Protection of Rural England involving 120 other market towns. Among the assets taken into consideration were history, architecture, community spirit, planning sensitivity, recreational facilities and individuality of shops and businesses. Additional facilities include a hospital, a bustling Pannier Market and a full range of schools both State and Private. Indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival. Plymouth is only 15 miles away from Tavistock with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.

A very pretty Grade II Listed semi-detached period cottage, sympathetically restored to provide comfortable accommodation which has a warm and cosy feel. The cottage affords modern comforts, including central heating and updated kitchen and bathroom facilities but still retains the charm and character of a typical country cottage.

To the side of the cottage lies a well tended garden with an enclosed area to the rear with a useful range of outbuildings. The private driveway provides off-road parking for one car.
