This is a rare opportunity to purchase a striking and beautifully presented detached residence in Lydford. The property sits within substantial grounds with a number of outbuildings and stables. These formerly had planning permission to be converted into holiday accommodation which could be an option for the next owner (subject to the necessary consents) to generate additional accommodation & income. The property is within a short distance of open moorland, great for those who love walking in the fresh air, or if utilising the stables and outriding. The gardens are level and laid to lawn with an abundance of mature shrubs and plants providing a wealth of colour. It is a beautiful place to sit and unwind in privacy listening to the wildlife from the woods and Lydford Gorge. The original part of the property is believed to have been constructed in the 1600's, whilst during the 1700's the property was extended to its current guise. The current vendors rent the property out for short term holidays throughout the year with great success. NO ONWARD CHAIN
