Ivybridge is a thriving small town with a good range of shops including a butchers, delicatessen, grocers, chemist and restaurants. In the centre of town you will find The Watermark, a new state-of-the-art library, IT suite, cinema and theatre space, coffee shop and conference facilities with bar. To the north of the town is the well reputed Ivybridge Community College which proudly holds specialist sports status. Further community facilities include a sports centre with indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a tennis centre and skate park. The A38 Exeter/Plymouth Road is easily accessible with Plymouth, Exeter and Torbay within easy commuting distance. Dartmoor National Park is on the doorstep with its large open expanse of moorland, good rambling and walks such as the 'Erme Valley Trail' and the 'Two Moors Way'. To the south of the town and within a 30 minute drive are the beautiful estuaries and long sandy beaches of the South Hams. Greycot was originally a farm building, this delightful 3 bedroom period cottage with south facing garden provides scope for modernisation. The cottage is set in a very accessible position close to Ivybridge and its excellent school.

This fabulous Grade II listed Devon manor house in the South Hams, an area of outstanding natural beauty, provides a wonderful family home with its spacious living areas, five bedrooms and its setting within an acre of land. The house faces south with masses of natural light spilling in through its many windows along the front façade. These look out over a deep front garden to the extensive parking area beyond where there is a stone mounting block close to the gate into the paddock. The entrance to the house is through an open porch, with seating on either side, leading into a cross hall with the massive farmhouse kitchen to one side and the spacious living room with its wood-burning stove to the other. Beyond the living room lie the dining room, study and useful utility area. Two sets of stairs lead up to the first floor and one of these is a lovely original spiral set curving up the back wall of the house.

Although parts of the house date back some 900 years its green credentials are borne out by the eco friendly biomass pellet boiler providing the heating and hot water. To the rear is a courtyard with stable block which is a tastefully converted stone barn with 2 spacious stables, concrete floors and a slate pitched roof with door through to a tack room and a gate into the back of the paddock which wraps around the eastern side of the house.
