Full description


Stapledon Lane is a centrally located backwater in one of the older parts of Ashburton and contains a varied range of architecturally and historically interesting properties. To the rear of the cottage is a garden with a sunny aspect, some pleasant views over the town and backing onto green fields.

Ashburton's excellent shops and amenities are just a short stroll away yet the cottage is sufficiently distant from the hustle and bustle of the actual town centre. The high street includes two butchers, a delicassen, artisan bakers, Co-operative stores, Post Office and Lloyds Bank. There are many local clubs and societies, cultural activities and the wide open space of Dartmoor is just a five minute drive away.

The A38 Expressway provides quick and easy access to the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter.

36 Stapledon Lane dates from the 17th century and is a characterful home with features including original stud and panel screens in the hall and living room, chamfered ceiling beams, two staircases and window seats.

Modern day comforts include good quality secondary double glazing and gas fired heating.

in addition to the main rear garden there is a second nearby garden a small distance along Stapledon Lane with garage and two parking spaces (rarely found with such a centrally located cottage).
