*SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION!* Charming three bedroom DETACHED CHARACTER COTTAGE situated in the heart of this POPULAR MOORLAND VILLAGE, enjoying large gardens, ample PARKING AND PADDOCK, making the property ideal for those with equestrian interests as there is easy access to open moorland for those that enjoy riding out. The property is being sold with the remainder of a Duchy of Cornwall lease and generally the Duchy have no concerns with renewing the lease at the end of its term, as long as the annual charges have been paid. The property itself benefits from oil fired heating with modern external boiler and has retained a wealth of its original charm and character. There is off road parking for two cars immediately to the side of the property, at the far end of the garden is a further gated access to a larger yard providing additional parking for horsebox/trailer and additional vehicles, as well as having a two bay car port and adjoining double garage which we believe was built in the 1920's by the McAlpine family who owned the cottage as a holiday home. Postbridge itself is renowned for its beautiful stone clapper bridge and idyllic locality, and is conveniently located for easy access to Moretonhampstead, Okehampton, Princetown and Tavistock, with the cities of Plymouth and Exeter both being approximately 45 minutes' drive away. This idyllic retreat would suit someone looking for a touch of the good life as there is large former vegetable/soft fruit garden and orchard, as well as good size formal gardens to the front and rear.
