An 18th century, Grade II listed cottage that requires some refurbishment with lots of potential. Situated on a peaceful country lane in Petrockstowe, Higher Cottage is in a quiet spot and in walking distance to the centre of the village.

The front door leads into a porch for storing coats, shoes and muddy boots! This enters into a reception room where a window overlooks the rear garden and the Rayburn is situated. Off of the reception room is a smaller room that could be used as cosy study or dining room. The galley kitchen has plenty of storage, integrated cooker and has access to the rear garden.
To the end of the kitchen is the spacious bathroom, with built-in cupboard space.

The staircase leads directly into the master bedroom, and a door leads into a single bedroom. Both rooms overlook the rear garden.

To the rear of the property is an elevated garden with greenhouse. To the front, there is a garage and the driveway. Please note the fenced area adjacent, belongs to Rose Cottage. Through a gate is the garden of approximately 0.2 acres, with far reaching views over unspoilt countryside and storage sheds at the top.

Petrockstowe itself is an historical village set in the heart of the famous Tarka countryside with the rolling Devon hills surrounding.

Dartmoor with its 368 square miles of moorland and countryside is within easy reach and highly visible from the village and the spectacular Devon and North Cornwall coastlines are accessible by car or public transport.

The village has a church, public house and village hall and it is to the market towns of Hatherleigh to the south or Torrington to the north one would look to everyday shopping needs, schooling etc.

The larger town of Okehampton is approximately 10 miles distant with a wider range of shopping facilities and amenities.
