A charming, newly converted Grade II listed cottage in the heart of a popular South Hams village. Character cottage, enclosed rear garden, large kitchen/family room, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, beautifully appointed, village location.
Radfords House is located in the pretty South Hams village of Broadhempston which has a community shop with post office and stores at the heart of the village, primary school, playing fields, Coppa Dolla and the Monks Retreat public houses. It is a pleasant country village situated approximately 5 miles from Totnes and 5 miles from Newton Abbot, and conveniently located to the A38 Devon Expressway providing speedy access to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter.
The bustling and thriving Elizabethan market town of Totnes retains much of its original character, full of interest with a wide range of good local schools, shopping facilities and recreational pursuits including indoor swimming pool and boating opportunities on the River Dart. There are mainline railway stations both at Newton Abbot and Totnes with a link to London Paddington. DESCRIPTION
Radfords is a development of just three residential properties which have been exceptionally well modernised by the developers at Moorhaven and offer the opportunity to purchase a highly desirable Grade II listed property in a very sought after village. Each of the three properties are different, yet all retaining the historic feel and quality of the 18th century listed property.
All three have designated parking and small garden areas and will undoubtedly appeal to families, re-locators, retirement purchasers and as potential for holiday homes too. GROUND FLOOR ACCOMMODATION
