Sing for joy at Nightingale Cottage

Nightingale Cottage is a charming end of terrace period cottage, situated in the heart of Blackawton with far reaching views across the village and surrounding countryside.  The property is located in a quiet ‘tucked away’ position and offers well-presented accommodation with delightful landscaped gardens and benefits from planning permission to create a single storey extension.

The ground floor provides a spacious living room, full of character and charm with exposed timber beams and a large stone inglenook fireplace housing a wood burner. Two windows overlook the front garden. The recently re-fitted kitchen has a good range units and appliances. A cloakroom completes the accommodation on this floor.

Upstairs there is a bathroom, two bedrooms, both of which enjoy pleasant views over surrounding countryside.  Bedroom 2 has exposed roof timbers and benefits from a useful mezzanine storage area. There is also a study on this level with French doors opening to the rear garden.

The pretty front garden has a timber pergola clad with climbing roses and jasmine, and provides an ideal spot for dining and relaxing.  Attractive slate and pebble pathways and well stocked flower and shrub borders lead to a timber shed. The rear garden has a raised terrace with decking and an area of lawn with steps leading down to a small courtyard off the kitchen.

Nightingale Cottage is on the market at an asking price of £250,000 freehold with sole agents Marchand Petit. For further information please contact the Dartmouth office on 01803 839190, or email

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.

In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
