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 a 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.
Mews Cottage has to be seen to be fully appreciated, as pictures cannot do it justice. This grade II slate hung terrace town house dates back to the 17th century.
Located in the heart of Buckfastleigh tucked away down a former cart way passage, the property benefits from a tranquil setting, being located within just a small cluster of character cottages.
The property itself is deceptively spacious set over three floors. It has five bedrooms, four of which are doubles, two reception rooms and large kitchen breakfast room and both a bath and shower room.
As you enter the property you are greeted by the generous sized kitchen breakfast room. This really is the heart of the house, with a farmhouse style kitchen and multi fuel burner, the room is incredibly inviting. There is space for a large table, allowing plenty of room for all the family. In the kitchen itself there is room for a cooker, fridge freezer and dishwasher, there is also a separate laundry/utility space on the first floor.
As you move through from the kitchen there is a separate dining room, this room is very versatile and great for entertaining, it also has a large original stone fireplace and exposed beams. The room flows nicely through to the comfortable and cosy living room at the front of the house.
The living room has a large bow window at the front which fills the room with light, there is also another original stone fireplace complete with a multi fuel burner. This room was once used as a grocery shop when Market street was part of the main town.
The first floor is accessed via the dining room, on this floor there are two generous double bedrooms, the family bathroom and the utility space. Both of the bedrooms have character features including original fireplaces and window seats.
To access the second floor there is an original wooden winder staircase. On this floor, there are a further two large double bedrooms and a single. All the rooms on this floor have exposed beams and apexes. There is also a shower room on this floor and additional storage space in the landing area.
The property comes complete with a secluded walled courtyard garden, believed to once have been a stable area or outhouse. The Courtyard has a variety of plants, including a productive grapevine which provides welcome shade in the summer, along with a beautiful Wisteria. This area has been laid to patio to allow a good sized seating area perfect for alfresco dining, as it is a real sun trap.
