THE PROPERTY Moorlands Cottage is a much loved family home which has been looked after and updated in recent years to offer modern and stylish accommodation yet retaining those period features including a stone fireplace and exposed beams. Warmth and welcome lie beyond the front door, where painted stone walls and whitewashed beams await to create a light and bright entrance to the kitchen.

Culinary comforts greet you in the kitchen, a modern twist on the typical cottage kitchen, with high quality in frame timber shaker units - cook up a feast as your guests gather around the farmhouse table to share a story and a glass of wine.

Step through into the lounge with its lovely feel and take in all that this room has to offer. The white washed beams and period features all serve as a backdrop to the magnificent fire place. A large multi-fuel wood burner stands proud in this feature fireplace. Imagine those cosy evenings curled up in front of the roaring fire long after the sun has set.

Time to head up the stairs, take the period staircase to discover the first of the three bedrooms. Cosy, cottage charm emanates from both the front and side windows that frame the views out to towards the countryside and Dartmoor beyond.

Take a peak into the second bedroom with its feature cottage window framing views out to the garden, Head back to the third bedroom, another great sized more than double bedroom, again with cottage windows to enjoy the views.

The family bathroom has a separate shower, freestanding wash basin and a WC - Why not relax in the large panelled bath. There is also a separate WC off the first floor landing.


OUTSIDE Head back though the lounge and beyond the French doors is a fabulous stone lined terrace, a great spot for a dining table to enjoy breakfast in the morning sun. This pretty cottage garden is awash with colour with a wealth of mature plants and shrubs, small pond and with a lawn which sweeps away to the end of the garden, Designed with entertaining in mind, there is with plenty of space to accommodate patios and seating areas, ideal for capturing the last of the evening sun. Soak up the splendour of this perfectly private setting.

OUR SELLERS REFLECTIONS - WHY I HAVE LOVED LIVING HERE Moorlands Cottage has made a happy home with its thick granite walls and thatched roof creating a place of charm and character and offering warmth during the winter months, but staying cool on hot summer days.
The ease of being able to walk out from the kitchen doors up to Lustleigh Cleave and beyond has been such a joy, especially when I had a dog and young children.

In the summer the cottage garden with its terraced area provides a south facing space to have a table and chairs to enjoy a coffee in the sunshine. By the late afternoon, when the sun has moved around to the west side, the terrace provides a spot to enjoy the evening sunshine and a glass of wine with the doors wide open leading out from the sitting room.

Christmases have been memorable, cosy and almost atmospheric! The wood burner in full use, with friends and family around the kitchen table.

My connections with Lustleigh go back over 40 years - It's a very special place with a warm heart and so much going on and a strong community spirit. The village shop provides an enormous benefit for us all - well stocked shelves and a vibrant atmosphere. I am only leaving all this because my partner and I have decided it is now time to cohabit - and more space is needed with growing grandchildren to embrace.
