GUIDE £425,000 TO £450,000 SITUATION
Cornwood is a typical Devon village, situated on the Southern edge of Dartmoor National Park, with a village shop and tea-room, visiting Post Office and primary school. The village also benefits from the community-owned Cornwood Inn, a church and a variety of clubs and societies for those who wish to join. There are walks out to the open moor, starting from the cottage, which provides wonderful views over the South Hams. Lee Mill is just under 10 minutes by car and gives access to the A38 South Devon Expressway and a 24h Tesco Extra. The town of Ivybridge is about 10 minutes by car and has a good range of shopping facilities, bank, leisure centre, golf club, railway station and a large, well respected Community College.
The city of Plymouth is within a 30 minute drive, itself an historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafés, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb water-sports in and around Plymouth Sound. Beaches at Mothecombe and Wembury are around a 30 minute drive. DESCRIPTION
This historic and well-proportioned semi-detached granite and stone cottage occupies an idyllic position on the edge of the South Hams village of Cornwood, within walking distance of the village amenities. Set in a plot of approx. 0.2 acres, the gardens are a real highlight of the property and offer rural views over the neighbouring fields. Inside there is a wealth of character features, such as exposed stone and timbers, stripped pine doors, stained glass windows, window seats and wood-burner. The kitchen is newly flagstone styled, while the lounge has oak flooring and the staircase and principle upstairs rooms have natural wood flooring. The property also benefits from oil fired central heating (Worcester boiler approx. 3 years old) and uPVC double glazing.
In brief, the accommodation over two floors comprises two double bedrooms (with potential to establish a third bedroom, from the family bathroom subject to consents), an en-suite shower room, family bathroom, kitchen/diner, sitting room with study area, utility room with WC, front and rear enclosed porches.
The kitchen/diner boasts granite work tops, complemented by wooden cabinets with integrated fridge, dishwasher and Belfast sink. A free-standing range with gas (bottled) hob and electric ovens is also included. A good-sized pantry is located off the kitchen. The utility room has a WC, pedestal basin and space and plumbing for a washing machine.
The sitting room has a large granite fireplace inset with cast iron wood-burner. A window seat overlooks the rear garden and there is a study area overlooking the front elevation.
An enclosed rear porch with seats and stable door opens into the garden from the sitting room.
The master bedroom has a range of quality fitted wardrobes and enjoys rural views over the rear garden. The en-suite shower room has a walk-in shower with screen, WC and heated towel rail.
The guest bedroom can accommodate a double bed whilst the generous-sized family bathroom boasts a roll-top bath with ball and claw feet, WC and pedestal basin. OUTSIDE
The property is reached via a right of way (vehicular and pedestrian), over the neighbour's drive leading from the lane. There is a lawned area with a useful outbuilding (a former piggery), possible conversion for additional uses (subject to the necessary consents), also for storing garden and leisure equipment, with a small courtyard in front with small outside timber shed. A path leads around the side of the property to the rear garden.
The rear garden backs onto a field and enjoys an open aspect. Predominantly laid to lawn, the large garden enjoys sun throughout the day and has well-stocked, landscaped rockery features with a wealth of shrubs and floral displays.
The owners have installed a fully glazed summer house, positioned on a deck which takes advantage of the well-tended garden and stunning moorland scenery.
To the side can be found a picket fence section including a greenhouse and an interesting landscaped fruit and vegetable garden with a variety of plants and specimens. There are also a number of mature apple trees. IMPORTANT AGENTS NOTE
