Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Having NO CHAIN and situated on the EDGE OF A VILLAGE, this end-terrace COTTAGE with an adjoining ANNEXE offers huge POTENTIAL, complete with a GARAGE, PARKING and rear GARDEN.

The cottage is located on the edge of Bridestowe, which is itself situated on the western flank of Dartmoor, some 10.5 miles from Tavistock to the south, 6.5 miles from Okehampton to the northeast and 12 miles from Launceston to the west. Bridestowe is a quiet and attractive historic village offering a pre-school and primary school, public house, village shop, Post Office and 13th Century church. From Bridestowe, there is quick access to the A30 dual carriageway at Sourton, just 2.5 miles away.

The original elements of the cottage date, we believe, to the Victorian era, although a more modern extension was added roughly 25 years ago which has enlarged the overall accommodation and provides ancillary space for an annexe for a dependant relative, or for those who simply want to create a larger family home. Internally, the cottage is tidy and has been well cared for, although a reasonable degree of updating and cosmetic improvement will surely now be desirable for an incoming owner.

Entered at the front via a porch, the cottage features a sitting room with open fireplace, rear dining hall and kitchen on the ground floor, with three bedrooms (including two very good size doubles) and a bathroom at first floor level. A side passage gives a secondary access from the street and leads out to the rear garden, but also provides a crucial internal access point to the extension, which has been partially utilised as a distinct dwelling in the past. On the ground floor of the extension can be found a garage, currently doubling as a utility room, which could possibly be converted to provide further living accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. A rear lobby lies behind the garage, together with a WC. At first floor level are a living room/kitchen and a bedroom/shower room, all in need of modernisation.

Outside, the cottage is joined by an enclosed rear garden which contains a greenhouse and a good size block-built garden store with a secondary lean-to greenhouse needing repair. Some attractive views of Dartmoor and the surrounding countryside are available from the bottom of the garden, where a seating area framed within a pergola can be found. Finally, to the side of the cottage is an off-road parking space.

Overall, we would encourage an internal viewing of this chain-free property to appreciate the substantial potential on offer.
