About this property

***No onward chain*** This quintessentially Devon Grade II listed cottage is packed with character and charm and offers spacious accommodation with 4 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, lovely garden, single garage, off street parking and is within walking distance of sandy beaches.

This beautiful Grade II listed cottage is believed to date back to the 17th Century and has not been on the open market for almost 50 years. The property is quietly positioned in the heart of a small coastal village just moments from the magnificent South Hams coastline and sandy beaches. The property offers very comfortable accommodation and offers a wealth of period features including two inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams throughout. On the ground floor there 2 good size reception rooms, each filled with character and charm, a light triple aspect kitchen, utility room and ground floor shower room. Also, on the ground floor is a sunroom, accessed from both the kitchen and sitting room with French doors leading out to a beautiful cottage garden.

On the first floor the accommodation is again generous in proportion with 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside the pretty cottage style garden is an absolute delight and has been superbly maintained and work in harmony with the glorious rural surroundings and neighbouring farmland. The property also benefits from off road parking and a detached garage/workshop.
