DESCRIPTION A characterful detached cottage occupying a beautifully maintained and impressive plot enjoying a high degree of privacy and views across the village. Built circa 1800 originally as two dwellings, the property has since been transformed into a spacious three bedroom house with two generous reception rooms and a great family kitchen.
The living accommodation is well proportioned throughout and arranged over two levels briefly comprising, kitchen/breakfast room accessed via a PVCu stable style door and two reception rooms on the ground floor, both with open fireplaces. A first floor landing leads to three good sized bedrooms (one with built in shower enclosure) and a family bathroom.
Externally, the property is accessed off a lane via wrought iron gates to a gravelled parking forecourt with the remains of a working well and a large detached double garage with remote electric door. The grounds are a key feature of the property predominantly enclosed by stone walls with extensive lawns, orchard, mature shrubs and raised fish pond. There is also a paved sun terrace directly accessed from the kitchen along with a green house, timber storage shed and outside WC.
We are delighted to offer this unusual opportunity to purchase a delightful character cottage in a village location, yet so accessible to the excellent amenities that Plymouth has to offer. The property also benefits from PVCu double glazing, gas central heating and is being offered to the market with no onward chain.
