Property Description: DESCRIPTION
Langaford Cottage is a delightful and ancient period house, probably originally a "cross passage" former farmhouse in a delightful rural setting. The accommodation is bright and generously proportioned providing 3 excellent sized first floor bedrooms and a potential bedroom on the ground floor. There are numerous character features including beamed ceilings, rustic oak plank doors and exposed inglenook fireplaces. This is complemented by oil central heating and extensive double glazing.
Outside is extensive parking, former garage/store giving way to stunning gardens which are stream bordered and stocked with a wealth of mature shrubs. In addition, there is an area of young woodland together with a charming lodge/cabin that provides three bedroomed self contained accommodation and enjoys stunning views towards Scorriton village and the moors beyond. There is an interesting area of young deciduous woodland with its own separate five bar gate access.
To conclude: Langaford Cottage presents a rare opportunity to purchase a period family home in an idyllic setting within the Dartmoor National Park. SITUATION
Langaford Cottage occupies a secluded and private position within an enchanting stream valley. This historic hamlet is a short distance from the favoured village of Holne which has an ancient Parish Church, Public House, community shop and café/tea room. This is excellent walking and riding country with good access to open moorland that provides the best opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Ashburton and Buckfastleigh are about 5 and 3 miles respectively and offer shopping facilities, primary and secondary education and easy access to the A38 Devon Expressway with direct links to Plymouth, Exeter and beyond.
