This attractive cottage is situated in the heart of the village of Lydford, on the western edge of Dartmoor National Park. The property enjoys a sunny, south-east facing rear aspect and is within easy reach of the village's amenities.
The village is served by two pubs, an Ofsted "Good"-rated Primary School and a popular farm shop. Located on the edge of Dartmoor, there are endless opportunities for walking, cycling, riding and exploring within easy reach, including The Granite Way public trail. Lydford is almost equidistant between the towns of Tavistock and Okehampton which, collectively, offer a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities. Furthermore, the cathedral city of Exeter lies some 32 miles to the east, providing motorway and rail connections to London and the rest of the UK, in addition to an international airport.DESCRIPTION
This extremely handsome period cottage has been totally refurbished over the past 12 months and now provides an exceptional blend of contemporary comfort and traditional character. The property provides three bedrooms and three reception rooms, including an impressive dining room extension, plus an informal loft room. The accommodation is complemented externally by a very pretty, varied rear garden, complete with two stone outbuildings. Given the extensive nature of the recent improvements and the high quality of finish, this cottage will give its new owner complete peace of mind for many years to come.ACCOMMODATION
The cottage has been subject to comprehensive programme of refurbishment and improvement, and these works include, but are not limited to: complete redecoration and internal re-plastering; new carpets and flooring; re-covering the roof in natural slate; new composite sash windows throughout; a new kitchen and two new bath/shower rooms; new consumer unit and electrical wiring; under-floor heating; new dining room extension; re-pointing to the stonework, and; exterior re-decorating and landscape work to the garden. Briefly, the cottage is comprised of two front receptions, a kitchen, dining room extension, shower/utility room, three bedrooms, family bathroom and converted loft. The principal sitting room features an impressive stone fireplace housing a log-burning stove on a slate hearth. The second reception also has a stone former fireplace which is lined for a log burner. The kitchen has been fitted with an excellent range of cupboards and units including an integral double oven (one of which is a combi microwave), dishwasher, 4-ring induction hob and fridge/freezer. At the rear of the kitchen is the hugely impressive dining room extension which is triple-aspect and has bifold doors leading outside. This is an excellent addition to the living accommodation and flows well from the kitchen and out to the garden, making it ideal for entertaining. On the first floor are three bedrooms and the tasteful family bathroom, which is complete with a free-standing bath and waterfall tap, a walk-in shower enclosure with rain-style shower head, wash basin and WC. Additionally, the bathroom benefits from underfloor heating, a heated towel rail, plus a heated and illuminated mirror. A pull-down ladder in the second bedroom gives access to a converted loft space, which would be ideal as a study or for another informal use and makes clever use of the available space.OUTSIDE
To the front of the cottage is a small yard enclosed by stone walling. The rear garden offers an appealing mix of different areas for enjoyment and interest, including an enclosed patio, two areas of lawn, a greenhouse, several planted beds, a small feature pond and a raised bed for vegetables. The entire garden is enclosed by stone walling and at the rear of the plot are two stone-built outbuildings currently serving as tool and wood stores. Finally, there is a gardener's WC.SERVICES
