Full description


Greenhayes occupies a lovely position on the south-eastern edge of Dartmoor in the hamlet of Higher Sigford. Ilsington village with its pub, primary school, community village shop and church is within walking distance via the minor Devon lanes. The open moor at nearby Pinchford Bowl and Haytor Down provide scenic walking and riding country.

Whilst enjoying all the benefits of country living Higher Sigford is within reach of the towns of Ashburton (four miles) and Bovey Tracey (five miles) as well as being less than ten minutes drive of the A38 for Exeter and Plymouth. The market town of Newton Abbot is a twenty minute drive.

Greenhayes is one of a pair of cottages of indeterminable age but understood to have been originally farm labourers cottages. Our clients have lived at Greenhayes for more than fifty years and have enlarged the accommodation.

The living room has the original granite fireplace with oak lintel and a modern wood-burner. Three of the bedrooms have wonderful views over South Devon countryside stretching towards the coast.

The garden has even better views and is of a good size with a number of useful sheds plus summerhouse. Adjoining the garden is a gently sloping field/paddock. The garden and field extend to between three quarters and one acre and there is a further area on the opposite side of the lane with gated parking for several vehicles, double car-port and garage.

NB The sellers intend to put a covenant on the field restricting any future development.

DIRECTIONS
From Ashburton join the A38 at Linhay in the Exeter direction and take the Goodstone exit, signposted Newton Abbot/Bickington onto the A383. After around half a mile turn left signposted Exeter/Ilsington and at the bottom of the hill take the first left by the red post box (signposted Haytor). Stay on the lane for 2.4 miles and take a left signposted Sigford. Greenhayes will be found down this lane after a short distance as the first property on the right.
