BEAUTIFULLY presented PERIOD THATCHED COTTAGE, believed to date back to the 16th CENTURY, and having been SYMPATHETICALLY RESTORED and MODERNISED, to offer a comfortable FAMILY HOME. The property enjoys EXTENSIVE GARDENS and PADDOCK, with STREAM BORDERS and PLEASANT VIEWS over the surrounding fields, beyond there is ample parking for numerous vehicles. The village of Lake, is situated in between Lydford and Sourton, and is well renowned for the Bearslake Inn public house, which is just a short walk away, as well as easy access to The Granite Way and open Moorland of Dartmoor for those who enjoy mountain biking or hill walking/dog walking. The property benefits from all bar one windows being double glazed and oil fired central heating, and the thatch has been re-newed in relatively recent years. The bathrooms and kitchens have all been extensively modernised and re-modelled. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped and maintained and are a very particular feature of the property and are enhanced by the pretty stream boarder that wraps around two sides of the garden. The paddock enclosure is currently utilised by the present owners ducks and chickens, but could be utilised for other purposes if required.


SITUATION:

This comfortable family home will appeal to those seeking easy access to the main road arterial network, the A30 corridor and either Exeter or Plymouth, both being approximately 45 minutes’ drive away and the nearby towns of Tavistock, Okehampton and Launceston are easily accessible by car. The neighbouring villages of Sourton, Bridestowe and Lydford all offer a range of local amenities including post offices, primary schools and general stores.
