THE PROPERTY Buyers looking for comfortable living with a traditional feel should be drawn to 2 Nelson Cottages. Facing south with a pleasant outlook, the ten semi-detached former Church Commissioners Victorian houses attract considerable interest when put up for sale. 2 Nelson Cottages is substantially built, with a steeply pitched roof and plenty of character.

Close to the centre of this pretty village, it is within walking distance of the church, the Sea Trout, the village cricket ground, the Dart Valley Steam Railway, the River Dart itself and North Wood. The house has been enlarged from the original and its accommodation includes a sitting room, kitchen area, dining room, conservatory, utility room and cloakroom [with room for a shower] on the ground floor and three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.

2 Nelson Cottages has some nice old features including a cast iron working fireplace in the sitting room and cottage doors. The upstairs rooms have an eavesy feel, and the house has been modernised sympathetically so that modern fittings complement a traditional feel. Heating is from a Worcester oil boiler in the utility room and windows are double glazed. An important part of the property is its good sized mature garden, which includes four apple trees and a pear tree. At the end of the garden is a stone outhouse providing two stores, one of which contains the oil tank. The garage and its workshop, at the back of the garden are approached over a lane around the back of next door. 

STAVERTON Staverton lies on the northern edge of the South Hams in the beautiful rural triangle between Totnes, Ashburton and Newton Abbot. The name Staverton or Stouretona means 'the village of stoney ford'. The ford, an ancient crossing many centuries old provided a route from the village to Dartington. In 1413 the very elegant Staverton Bridge was built. The village has a parish church, the well-known Sea Trout Inn, a primary school, St Christopher's Nursey and Preparatory School and playing fields with tennis courts. The surrounding countryside and the River Dart provide wonderful opportunities for the country enthusiast including splendid walks, riding and fishing. Close by are Dartington Hall, which has worldwide renown as a centre of excellence for music and the performing arts, and the acclaimed Riverford Field Kitchen restaurant. Together with Dartmoor to the west, the Devon Riviera to the east and the South Hams to the south, the area is host to a wide choice of recreational and sporting facilities. Both the A38 at Ashburton (3m) and the market town of Totnes (5m) are within easy reach. The sea is 12 miles away and the blue badge awarded Blackpool Sands beach is 16 miles.  

HOW TO FIND IT TQ9 6PA. Leave the A384 just north of Dartington for Staverton. Cross the bridge over the Dart at the bottom of the hill and bear right after the railway line. Continue ninto the village. 2 Nelson Cottages is on the left and opposite the entrance to Nelson Close.
