The cottage is located on the eastern side of Gunnislake, close to the River Tamar and amongst the hugely scenic, verdant surroundings of the Tamar Valley which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and forms part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are numerous walks and trails on the doorstep, presenting many opportunities to explore the region's heritage. The property is within close proximity of local amenities and transport links, with Gunnislake providing a selection of shops and public houses, a doctor's surgery, primary school and Co-op fuel station/mini-market. In addition to regular bus services, there is the added benefit of a rail connection into Plymouth City on the Tamar Valley Line. Tavistock, 4.5 miles away, is a thriving market town in West Devon, rich in history and tradition dating to the 10th century. Today, the town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after private and independent school, Mount Kelly. Plymouth, with its coastal access, is 16 miles to the south. The cathedral city of Exeter lies 37 miles to the northeast, providing railway and motorway connections to the rest of the UK, plus an international airport.DESCRIPTION
This quirky and characterful home offers bright and open accommodation arranged partly in a reverse-level fashion and suitable for a variety of lifestyles. There are three bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms, in addition to a large kitchen/family room and separate snug. The property is complemented externally by an attractive walled garden to the front, lawned garden to the rear and off-road parking spaces for 2/3 cars. Situated towards the end of a no-through road, the cottage enjoys a great deal of privacy and tranquillity, as well as some incredible views of the wooded eastern banks of the Tamar Valley. Within the rear garden is a new outbuilding featuring its own bar, currently undergoing the final stages of construction, which would make an ideal workshop, hobbies room, or a peaceful and private office for those looking to work from home.ACCOMMODATION
The accommodation is presented in good condition throughout, being entered on the ground floor into a hallway where there are doors to two of the bedrooms, both of which face out to the attractive walled front garden, and a wet room. The wet room is tastefully finished in attractive tiling and contains a rain-style shower, WC and wash basin. Stairs rise from the hall to the first floor, initially into the sizeable kitchen/family room which again benefits from attractive views of the Tamar Valley at the front, with the living area centered around a log burner on a slate hearth. The open-plan breakfast kitchen features the exposed stonework of a former fireplace, and is equipped with a good range of low-level cupboards and units incorporating an induction hob and electric oven, plus a ceramic 1.5-bowl sink and drainer. Off the living area is a separate snug with its own log burner, which could also be utilised as a dining room, study or hobbies room. There are patio doors from the snug leading out to the parking area and rear garden. Finally, the property's principal, triple-aspect bedroom is found beyond the snug, together with an adjacent bathroom which functions as an en-suite.OUTSIDE
To the front of the cottage is a pretty walled garden with raised stone beds suitable for planting or use as a sheltered vegetable patch. Immediately to the rear of the cottage is a parking area sufficient in size for three vehicles although partly used at present for the siting of a polytunnel. From here, steps lead down to the rear garden which is predominantly laid to law and offers a very peaceful and private space from which to take in the wonderful views across the valley. At the garden's far end is a new detached timber outbuilding, currently nearing completion, which would be suitable as a summerhouse, home office, workshop or studio space, and contains its own bar.SERVICES
