Located on the edge of this historic and popular market town is this delightful attached three/four bedroom cottage, which has been sympathetically improved and renovated by the current owners. This home would suit a range of purchasers with the adaptable layout offering a good size family home with an integral self-contained annexe, ideal for a dependant relative or could easily be incorporated back into the main dwelling. The annexe known as 'Clockmakers Cottage' has also generated an income, being successfully used as a holiday let. Parking and garden with some distant Dartmoor views.

Location and situation: This home is situated close to the centre of this historic and popular market town, which provides a range of shops, bank, primary school, doctor and veterinary surgeries, three well patronised local inns, community centre, various sports clubs/recreational facilities.
The larger town of Okehampton is approximately 7 miles to the south, providing a more comprehensive range of amenities and facilities, as well as three supermarkets, one being Waitrose. There is also direct access onto Dartmoor and the A30 dual carriageway, providing good road links west into Cornwall or east to the Cathedral City of Exeter with its motorway, rail and airport links.
The property: We believe this cottage was part of a larger period town house with the neighbouring property, 'Knights Cottage' which is also on the market with us and therefore can be purchased and potentially reverted back into one large home, (subject to the relevant planning consents). As already mentioned above 'Knights Cottage' is available to buy and has also provided an income via holiday lets and overall they provide many options to a range of buyers.
