This beautifully presented detached cottage is believed to date back to the late 17th century and was sympathetically restored in the 1990's. The accommodation at the time was extended to incorporate a wide range of modern-day benefits that work in unison with the wide range of original character features.
Located on a plot of approximately ½ an acre the property overlooks the surrounding farmland and countryside and is approached via a cobbled paved driveway that provides parking for numerous vehicles and access to the front entrance. A double-glazed stable door leads into the beautiful entrance hallway with parquet flooring and a feature stone wall which formed part of the original cottage. Stairs rise to the first-floor accommodation and a under stairs storage area which has a slate tiled floor that provides additional storage. There is a generous sized, dual aspect lounge which has a natural stone fireplace with inset log burner with a feature timber lintel. The recently fitted bespoke kitchen has slate and solid wood, work surfaces whist the Belfast sink is set within a granite work surface with grooved draining. Also, in the kitchen there is an integrated dishwasher, a range oven and a slate tiled floor with under floor heating. The kitchen then opens through to the dining/family room where you have a wood burning stove, a slate hearth and French doors that lead out to the rear of the property. Also, on the ground floor there is a cloakroom/wc, a utility and a generous sized conservatory with French doors opening to the garden, with magnificent views of the garden and surrounding countryside. On a good day you have views as far as Dartmoor National park.
On the first-floor landing there is an original feature curved stone wall which formed part of the original cottage, three bedrooms, with bedroom two having a vaulted beamed ceiling and the potential to covert or sub divide to create a further bedroom. There are two access points to a large insulated loft. The master bedroom forms part of the extension with a triple aspect, an en-suite shower room and French doors that lead out to the rear sun terrace. The family bathroom has a roll edge ball and claw foot bath, wash hand basin and wc.
Located on the outskirts of Plymouth and on the fringes of the South Hams Countryside, the property forms part of the original village of Staddiscombe and is believed to have been at some point the local post office.
On the grounds of the property are two generous sized timber-built stores both with power, a barbeque seating area and a spring fed brook running through the garden and into the adjoining paddock where you have a wide variety of mature shrubs and trees. Opposite the property there is a further stone-built store and an area of further parking.
This beautifully presented detached cottage is a credit to its current owners and offers potential purchasers the opportunity to live in a tranquil setting whilst offering easy access to the city of Plymouth and the South Hams Countryside and coastline.
