A rare opportunity to purchase a well presented character cottage located in a countryside position on the fringe of the popular village of Milton Combe. This family home offers a huge amount of privacy and seclusion with no near neighbours and stunning countryside views, whilst being within walking distance of the village church and public house. The property does not come with pastureland but there is potentially the option to buy an approximate three acre field which is a short distance from the property by separate negotiation (this is not directly connected to the property).
This detached property boasts five bedrooms and two reception rooms with off road parking and generous gardens being surrounded by open fields. The gardens are a real feature of the property, encompassing the house with a attractive stone walled boundary, useful outbuildings plus a gated driveway.
It is believed that this was the former game Keepers Cottage in the 1800's. The property was completely refurbished in the mid 1970's and then again by the current owners, offering a stunning garden room with a vaulted section and exposed wooden beams. The property benefits from solar panels, oil fired central heating, double glazing and a open fireplace. Milton Combe is a most attractive, small village consisting mainly of period cottages and houses within a quiet tributary valley of the main River Tavy. The 16th Century Inn “The Who’d Have Thought It” is renowned for it’s food and hospitality. Church bells can be heard from the village church on special occasions. The nearby villages of Crapstone and Buckland Monachorum, which has a school and a wonderful local 12th Century pub The Drake’s Manor Inn, are very popular locations for professional people, whilst in Yelverton, about 2 miles away, there is a thriving community spirit with a great selection of shops, sports clubs, and services.
The property is delightfully situated almost equidistant between the popular ancient Market/Stannary Town of Tavistock, which is only 8 miles away, and Plymouth. Thus, providing easy access to either the classic old style town shopping with a covered Pannier Market, butchers, greengrocers and much more or the thrust of an historic City full of attractions in Plymouth.
Derriford Hospital is approximately 10 minutes away with a large sports club next door featuring a large Gym, swimming pool, tennis courts , squash courts and classes in all manner of activities to keep you in good shape.
