The property is offered for sale by Informal Tender on 12:00pm midday on Friday 21st October 2016, unless sold prior. Parties wishing to submit a Tender must do so by 12 noon on the Tender date, using the form available through Ward & Chowen upon request. The rights of the vendor to sell the property by Private Treaty prior to the Tender deadline, or to withdraw the property from the Tender process without warning, at any time, are reserved. Equally, it should be noted that the vendor does not undertake to accept the highest or any Informal Tender. Submitted Tenders must be for a fixed sum of money and it is recommended that odd amounts should be considered to reduce the risk of identical offers. Viewings will be strictly during allocated times and interested parties must register with Ward & Chowen prior to viewing. Failure to respect the sellers' privacy in this respect may result in your tender being rejected.

The cottage is located along a no-through road not far from the village of Lamerton, with few near neighbours and little passing traffic. The busy market town of Tavistock lies some 5 miles distant to the southeast, offering an excellent array of shopping and recreational facilities. Built of stone with a slated roof and some brick quoining in places, the property also features a characterful interior to include beamed ceilings, stable-style rear door, hardwood double glazing and a fireplace with inset log-burning stove.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and is in need of refurbishment, being comprised of an entrance hall/study, 31' living/dining room, a kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom, plus walk-in storage loft. Furthermore, planning consent has been granted for a 2-storey extension to the side of the cottage in order to enlarge the kitchen on the ground floor and create a third bedroom off the landing on the first floor. For full details of the consent and the relevant plans, please contact Ward & Chowen.

At the rear of the cottage is a private, enclosed garden with planted borders and a small pond. Situated in one corner of the garden is the detached garage and there is further parking available to the side and rear of the property.

This charming country cottage offers a superb chance to create a characterful, well-rounded rural home and we would encourage viewing to fully appreciate this.
