Tenure: Freehold

Situated in WHITCHURCH village, within easy reach of Tavistock town and WALKING DISTANCE OF DARTMOOR, this EXTENDED, DETACHED 2-bedroom COTTAGE is CHAIN-FREE and has been comprehensively and SYMPATHETICALLY RENOVATED to offer a cosy and comfortable home complete with a GARDEN, GARAGE and PARKING.

Situated along Whitchurch Road, the cottage is just over a mile from the centre of Tavistock and its extensive facilities, whilst the local Post Office/Shop and bus connection to the town centre are located just across the road. The open expanse of the Dartmoor National Park is roughly 1/3rd of a mile away, offering superb opportunities for walking, riding and exploring the great outdoors.

Built, we believe, of local stone in the mid-1800s and finished externally with hung slate, this handsome cottage has been restored and refurbished throughout over the last couple of years but has kept a great deal of character and charm, including, internally, exposed ceiling beams, some attractive ledged and braced timber doors, seated bay windows and a substantial fireplace in the sitting room.

Recent improvement works are numerous and include the replacement of the bathroom suite, the fitting of a new staircase, updating of the boiler, central heating system and electrical installation, the placement of engineered oak flooring throughout the ground floor, the installation of all new double glazed windows and the construction of a substantial extension which houses a brand new Howdens fitted kitchen/dining room with patio doors opening to the garden. Externally, the cottage has been completely redecorated, whilst the garden has been extensively cleared and landscaped to offer a beautiful enclosed space in which to enjoy the warmer weather.

In summary, the living accommodation is comprised as follows: entrance porch, with tiled floor; sitting room, featuring the open fireplace with inset log-burning stove; inner lobby; fitted Howdens kitchen/dining room, with integral 4-ring hob, fan-assisted electric oven and plumbed space for an appliance; bathroom, fitted with a new suite; two first floor bedrooms, one having a fitted wardrobe space and the other having newly fitted WC facilities en suite. There are two boarded lofts offering storage, in addition to an attached garage to the side of the cottage and a useful garden room at the rear. An off-road parking space is also provided beyond the garage.

Overall, we would highly recommend an internal viewing of this charming character property to fully appreciate the quality of the accommodation and the lifestyle on offer.
