DESCRIPTION This Victorian 3 bedroom end of terrace cottage was originally built for railway workers on the old Plymouth to Yealmpton line. The days of trains passing the front of the cottage have long since gone and now this cottage offers a rare opportunity to buy a house with character and off-road parking, on a quiet road in this popular village. The high ceilings, typical of Victorian houses are seen throughout the property and the cottage enjoys lots of natural light with some rooms benefitting from a dual aspect.

A substantial wooden front door opens into a useful entrance porch with solid limestone flooring, off which opens the utility room/downstairs WC and the kitchen/breakfast room. The limestone flooring continues into the kitchen/breakfast room and compliments the county-style cupboards with solid wood worktops. Integrated appliances include a 4 ring gas hob with electric fan assisted oven and dishwasher. A vaulted ceiling with skylights provides plenty of light, in addition to the dual aspect windows, making it a great family and entertaining space. Beyond this is the dining room, currently used as a play/music room with a stairscase up to the first floor, and doors leading into the sitting room which has French windows to the rear patio and a wood-burner on a slate hearth. There is a garden room with a tiled floor with windows to two sides and patio doors into the main garden at the side of the house.

Upstairs there is a generous dual aspect master bedroom, a contemporary style family-bathroom with 'P' shaped bath and 2 further bedrooms. The house retains many period features such as stripped pine doors, fireplaces and picture rails. Modern features such a gas combi-boiler and double glazing have also been added.

Outside there is gravelled hard-standing for two cars and a West facing garden including a lawn, flower beds and a patio area ideal for al-fresco dining.
