The property is situated in the heart of the picturesque Dartmoor village of Throwleigh. The village itself has an historic 15th century church, whilst in the nearby hamlet of Wonson, there is the well known local inn, the Northmore Arms. From the village there are many footpaths leading into the surrounding countryside and woodlands and up onto the high moor with many opportunities for riding, walking and outdoor pursuits. The popular Dartmoor town of Chagford is some three miles away offering a good range of day to day and specialised shops, primary school, public houses and hotel. The nearby village of South Zeal has a primary school, village store and two inns. The town of Okehampton offers a wider range of shops, services, education and recreational facilities. From Throwleigh, there is easy access to the A30 dual carriageway, providing a direct link with the cathedral and university city of Exeter with its M5 motorway, main line rail and international air connections.DESCRIPTION
The Forge comprises a semi detached period granite cottage offering deceptively spacious accommodation with scope for some further improvement if required. The property is extensively double glazed and oil centrally heated and was formerly the village post office. Immediately adjoining is a good sized area of garden, with a garage and off road parking. Directly across the lane, from the property is an excellent pasture paddock of approximately 0.5 an acre, with outbuildings including a granite shed, timber shed/store and a field shelter. The paddock would be ideal for keeping a pony or for general stock grazing. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a cottage with paddock in the heart of this most sought Dartmoor village.ACCOMMODATION
