About this property

Situated within the beautiful village of Cockington, a grade II listed detached property with 2/3 bedrooms, parking and southerly aspect garden.

Perfectly positioned in the desirable village of Cockington, this Grade II listed detached home offers two/three bedrooms, off road parking and a beautiful southerly facing garden.

The property, which was originally an old hay barn, was converted in 1997 and is set over three levels and features reverse level living accommodation.

To the ground floor there is a double bedroom complete with en-suite shower room, utility room, family bathroom and a main bedroom which features built in wardrobes and a shower.

The open plan living accommodation can then be found up the stairs on the first floor and boasts beautiful high ceilings with original exposed roof timbers. There is also a separate kitchen/breakfast room on this floor that benefits from a wonderful arched window feature and leads on to a Juliet balcony.

Lastly there is a mezzanine level to the third floor that leads to a study but could be used as a third bedroom. The landing area would also adequately provide a suitable space for a desk if needed.

As well as the gardens to the rear, externally this property offers off road parking for two vehicles with visitors parking available close by.

This idyllic village is hidden in a deep valley just one mile from the bustle of Torquay where there are golden beaches, cliff walks, golf courses and plenty of recreational facilities. From here narrow winding lanes give access to the beautiful chocolate box cottages, old English gardens, thatched gift shops and Cockington Forge. Nearby Cockington Court has 450 acres of parkland, woodland and lakes to explore and on the edge of the woods is the famous Gamekeeper's Cottage dating back to the 16th century. In the village is the Drum Inn where families are welcome to partake in a varied menu of food and drink and children can play in the safe gardens. A footpath through the Drum's gardens opens onto the village cricket ground which provides the venue for many open-air events throughout the year. The nearby towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot have rail networks linking the South West with London and The North together with the Devon Expressway providing road access to the A38 linking in with the M5.
