Buckfastleigh is a small market town situated beside the A38 Devon Expressway, providing a direct link to the cites of Plymouth and Exeter as well as the M5, which makes it a great location for commuters. The town itself has a Primary school, Health centre, Post office, Newsagent and Co-Operative store, along with a variety of cafes, shops, and pubs.

The town offers a wide range of tourist attractions, such as an open-air swimming pool, the historic Buckfast Abbey and grounds, Dart Rock climbing centre, Pennywell Farm, the Butterfly and Otter sanctuary and the South Devon Railway.

The Norman town of Totnes is approximately 7 miles away providing a wide range of amenities and shops, including a mainline railway station getting to London Paddington in approximately 3 hours.

This unique grade II listed cottage has to be seen to be believed. The property has undergone a stunning refurbishment by the current owner and has been completely transformed over the last 3 years. The property now has the feel of walking into a modern city centre loft apartment, while being nestled in the quiet rural setting of Buckfastleigh Fore Street. The property also benefits from both a courtyard garden and lawned area, along with a stone outhouse. There is currently permission in place for a kitchen extension and outhouse conversion.

The property has an incredibly light spacious feel, with an impressive, vaulted ceiling, and multiple Velux windows in place, allowing light to flood in. It is currently laid out as a studio space, with the bedroom being open through to the living area. However, this can easily be divided into a separate bedroom space by just adding in partition wall if desired. There is a large amount of built in wardrobe storage in the bedroom area, along with a separate modern shower room, with a rainfall shower and modern vanity unit. This has been finished with sleek subway tiles.

The current owner has installed a new gas combination boiler, underfloor heating throughout the bedroom, bathroom and living space, and has had the property fully rewired.

There is still an element of the property that is unfinished, at the moment the kitchen is located in the original conservatory, the kitchen currently consists of free-standing furniture and appliances. In this space there is also plenty of room for a 4-seater table. There is permission for a kitchen extension and conversion of the outhouse into a home office/guest suite, complete with shower room. Planning number 0573/20 details available on Dartmoor NP website.

Outside there is both a good-sized courtyard area attached to the property, with the outhouse at the rear of the courtyard. Along with a good sized lawned garden area which sits diagonally opposite the outhouse. The property is located behind a gated entrance and has an incredibly private feel, with views out across the surrounding hills.

This property offers the glamour and luxury of a city centre property, while benefitting from the peace and serenity of a countryside location. A property like this is incredibly unique and still has the potential to put your own stamp on it. A viewing is highly recommended.
