FORMERLY TWO COTTAGES, the property has now been incorporated into ONE SPACIOUS DWELLING that offers VERSATILE ACCOMMODATION over two floors. The property that has been SYMPATHETICALLY EXTENDED in recent years by the current owners and retains a GOOD DEGREE OF THE ORIGINAL CHARACTER. The accommodation briefly compromises of an entrance porch, large kitchen/ dining room, sitting room, garden room, utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor. There are two internal staircases, on one side leading to two bedrooms and bathroom and on the other a further two bedrooms and a shower room. This would allow for the property to easily be divided into a house and annexe or indeed for the provision of a separate B & B or guest accommodation. The property is extensively double glazed and benefits from solid fuel heating, supplemented by solar thermal panels, together with solar PV, supplementing the electricity supply. Outside there is a driveway providing off road parking, a detached garage with workshop, summerhouse/ store and large areas of gardens with an abundance of fruit trees, two ponds and a vegetable garden. A short distance from the house and gardens and accessible via a pathway along the verge is an excellent pasture paddock of approximately 1.1 acres.


This deceptively spacious 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. The nearest secondary school is Okehampton, or one can attend Mount Kelly College in Tavistock, or Shebbear College in North Devon. From the property, the boundary of the National Park is literally across the road, as is one of several tracks leading directly onto the high moor, providing direct walking and outriding. The Dartmoor National Park is famed for its hundreds of square miles of superb unspoilt scenery, with many opportunities for riding, walking and outdoor pursuits. In addition, to access to the moor, Keasts also enjoys easy access to the Granite Way, providing miles of cycling and walking.
