A charming cottage in the Tamar Valley with off-road parking and a garden, ideal for first-time buyers or investors. Refurbished cottage, two bedrooms, convenient village location, off-road parking 47' rear garden, centrally heated and double glazed, available furnished, no onward chain. EPC Band: D

Situation - This charming, characterful two-bedroom cottage is situated in the heart of Gunnislake village, within reach of all local amenities. The village is positioned adjacent to the River Tamar on the Devon/Cornwall border, in the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), a region rich in history and popular for its picturesque, sylvan scenery and extensive opportunities for walking and exploring. From Gunnislake there is a direct rail service to Plymouth, for those wishing to commute or shop in the city centre, whilst the town of Tavistock is located 4.5 miles to the east by road.
 
Tavistock is a thriving market town dating back to the 10th Century and famed for being the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake. Today, the town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after private and independent school, Mount Kelly, whilst the largely 19th Century town centre is focussed around the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, in which regular farmer's markets are held. Tavistock straddles the river Tavy and borders with the Dartmoor National Park along its eastern edge, making it an extremely popular destination for lovers of the outdoors with walking, riding, cycling and exploring all on the doorstep.
 
 

Description - Purchased by the current owner just a few years ago, the cottage has been the subject of many significant improvements and now offers comfortable living accommodation, ideal for first-time buyers or investors. Amongst those works included within the refurbishment were the re-plastering and decorating of most of the internal walls, the replacement of the kitchen units and bathroom suite, engineered oak flooring throughout the ground floor, new carpets to the first floor, new oak doors, several new radiators, a new consumer unit and the replacement of the staircase in the kitchen. Complete with a good size rear garden and a valuable off-road parking space, the cottage is available with no onward chain and we would encourage a viewing at the earliest opportunity.

Accommodation - The accommodation is clearly shown on the floorplan overleaf and is accessed into the hall through the entrance porch to the side of the property, which is of uPVC construction on a half-height wall, with tiled flooring. Doors from the hall lead to the ground floor bathroom and, to the rear, out to the garden, whilst an archway leads through to the kitchen. The bathroom features a panelled bath with shower attachment and waterfall taps, an enclosed-cistern WC, a ladder-style towel rail and a sink - again, with waterfall taps - set over a low-level vanity cupboard.
 
The kitchen makes the most of the available space with wall-mounted and base-level units, the latter having work surfaces over which include, on one side, a round-bowl sink with mixer tap and drainer, and, to the other, a 4-ring electric hob with oven beneath. There is space for a fridge and a further plumbed space for an appliance. Finally on the ground floor, the cosy sitting room benefits from a gas fireplace with a decorative surround, with alcoves to either side fitted with shelving and storage cupboards. On the first floor can be found the cottage's two bedrooms. The principal bedroom is also equipped with fitted wardrobes to the alcoves, either side of a central, ceiling-height cushioned headboard with inset spotlights over for nighttime reading. The second bedroom overlooks the garden to the rear and contains the boiler cupboard.

Outside - To the rear of the cottage, accessed via the hall, is the property's garden which extends to almost 50' in length and is enclosed on two sides by natural stone walling. Steps lead from the rear of the property to an initial paved patio area featuring a timber pergola, with two further steps leading to a second paved area beyond. There are stone and brickwork raised beds and borders planted with a variety of shrubs and flowers. An outside tap can be found by the cottage's back door.

Services - Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage are all connected to the cottage. There is mains gas-fired central heating to radiators throughout. Please note that the agents have neither inspected nor tested these services.

Agent's Notes - 1. Much of the furniture within the cottage, including the white goods in the kitchen, will be available by negotiation as part of the sale, which may particularly be of interest to first-time buyers and those with an interest in holiday letting.
2. We are advised that the owner is in possession of a clear Concrete Screening Test to show that the cottage is free from "Mundic Block".

Viewings - Strictly by appointment with the vendor's sole agents, Stags.

Directions - From Tavistock, proceed west out of the town on the A390, Callington Road. After 2 miles, continue straight across Gulworthy Roundabout and continue on the A390 for a further 1.5 miles, passing over New Bridge into Gunnislake. Upon reaching the traffic lights in the village, take the sharp right into Commercial Street and turn left into King Street, whereupon the property will be found on the right as indicated by our For Sale board. Viewers may wish to park in the public car park accessible from Chapel Street, which allows two hours free parking.
