Property Description: SITUATION
Avonwick is a charming village located on the River Avon, in the heart of the South Hams area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The A38 Devon Expressway is within a mile, connecting to the M5 and national road network. The village offers a friendly community atmosphere, a pretty Victorian church, automotive garage and a well-regarded public house and restaurant. The Avon Vale Tennis Club is reputed to be one of the oldest lawn tennis clubs in the world, and is a popular gathering place for many in the local area. There are three popular primary schools within three miles and three comprehensive schools within six miles. The delightful Elizabethan town of Totnes is just five miles away with a full range of services and facilities including a mainline train station offering services to Plymouth, Exeter and on to Bristol, Cardiff and London.
Useful facilities can also be found in South Brent with churches, a primary school, and a range of local retailers. Dartmoor is nearby offering countryside walks and some of the finest beaches on the south coast being within easy reach.
Bow Cottage is a charming stone built cottage, set back from the road up a driveway and in an elevated position providing views across open countryside from the garden. The property, whilst benefitting from some updating, does provide spacious living accommodation, a good sized garden and parking. It has some lovely character features including exposed beams to most rooms, and wooden doors with wrought iron latches. It is believed that the property could be extended, subject to planning permission. Bow Cottage provides a great opportunity for a buyer to put their own stamp on this desirable cottage, taking advantage of its great location. ACCOMMODATION
