Tucked away in a beautifully scenic moorland position, this charming home should appeal to lovers of the outdoors as well as those seeking the quiet life. Within 500 yards are Bellever Forest, the East Dart River and Bellever Bridge, views of all of which are available from the house. Dartmoor National Park is a hugely popular destination for walking, riding, cycling and exploring. Approximately 7 miles away is the village of Princetown, offering day-to-day amenities including shops, cafés, two public houses and a community centre. The thriving market town of Tavistock is 14 miles away and offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities.

This semi-detached, ex-forester's cottage has been modernised and improved over the past two years, and now provides comfortable, versatile accommodation suitable for a variety of owners. Internally, the house has three good size bedrooms, three reception rooms and two bathrooms, all of which are bright and attractive. Externally, there are gardens on three sides in addition to a garage and off-road parking. The standout feature of this property is its location, being surrounded by open moorland and within striking distance of Bellever Forest and the East Dart River. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a freehold property offering a wonderful lifestyle opportunity.

The accommodation is shown on our accompanying floorplan, being entered on the ground floor into a hallway, from where there are doors to the living and dining rooms, plus stairs to the first floor. The dual-aspect living room has a gas fire, patio doors out to the rear garden and takes advantage of the beautiful views to the front. The dining room, which is open-plan with the kitchen, is centered around a tiled fireplace with slate hearth, housing a multi-fuel stove (used for heating and hot water). Beyond the dining room is a second reception room with patio doors, ideal as a play room/hobbies room, study or home office. Located off this room are a ground floor bathroom and a utility cupboard with plumbing for laundry appliances. This very useful addition to the main accommodation could be adapted for use as an annexe, with some alteration (and subject to any necessary consents and approvals). At first floor level are the three bedrooms, all of which are a good size and benefit from fitted wardrobe space, plus a wet room and separate WC. The two front-facing bedrooms, in particular, benefit from the idyllic outlook in front of the house towards neighbouring moorland and Bellever Forest.

In front of the house is an open parking area and the property's garage (which is within a block of 5). There is an attractive lawned garden to the front of the house, enclosed by hedging. A pathway leads around to the back of the house where there is a large wrap-around garden, laid predominantly to lawn and, therefore, suitable for both the active family and the hobby gardener, from where one can take in the beautiful surroundings. A timber garden shed can be found to one side.

Mains electricity. Private water (bore hole), private drainage (septic tank), LPG and solid fuel heating (with backup immersion).
