Cobblestones enjoys a corner position in Higher Dean, a quiet enclave in the village of Dean Prior on the outskirts of Buckfastleigh, close to the edge of Dartmoor. Buckfastleigh has a wide array of individual shops and amenities and well known towns of Ashburton and Totnes are only a few miles away. Buckfast is approximately equidistant to Exeter and Plymouth, and easily commutable on the A38/Devon Expressway, and a mainline railway station with direct links to London Paddington can be found in Totnes.

This charming Grade II listed cottage enjoys a wealth of original features including many exposed ceiling beams, feature painted wood panelling, a large stone fireplace and a window seat. The cottage has been updated by the current owners and is presented in a good condition. Outside there is a level, well maintained garden with outbuilding providing two stores.

This cottage, originally part of a larger house, is believed to date from the early 16th century. The cottage is accessed directly into the sitting room with dining area to the right. The sitting room is a dual aspect room with a huge 6ft wide recessed stone fireplace. The window overlooking the front of the property has a window seat. The kitchen, with a range of kitchen units, has a dual aspect with windows overlooking the garden and to the side of the property. A small step leads up into a separate utility room with access to the garden.

Upstairs there are two good sized double rooms (one with ensuite) with many character features and fitted wardrobes. Bathroom with bath, basin, WC and airing cupboard.

The front of Cobblestones has a low level stone wall and latch gate leading to a distinctive and unusual cobblestoned front area which no doubt gives the cottage its name. The garden to the rear is level well stocked and maintained with stone walls and paths and fine views of the moors in the distance. At the end of the garden there is an outbuilding which has three useful store rooms. A side gate gives access into the garden, past a parking area.

Mains electricity, mains water, mains drainage, mains gas central heating.
