UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY to acquire a three bedroom DETACHED CHARACTER COTTAGE, set within approximately FOURTEEN ACRES of LEVEL LAND predominantly laid to pasture with a USEFUL RANGE OF BUILDINGS and some REDUNDANT FORMER BUILDINGS, which could potentially be reinstated. The property has for many years been used for equestrian purposes and would equally serve as a small holding. The land is predominantly set out into four primary enclosures as well as a former top yard and former poultry shed and sheep shed. There is a large detached Nissen hut with the concrete bases of several additional former outbuildings. The property is accessed directly off the main Okehampton to Holsworthy road, with gated entrance and driveway leading past the property to a parking area, where there are two open fronted car ports, range of timber stables and a detached pole barn. To the front of the property are formal gardens with well stocked flower and shrub beds and borders. The property is in need of modernisation and refurbishment. Currently it has a spacious sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, large lean to extension to the rear incorporating study, store room and workshop. To the side of the property is a further lean to, currently utilised as a large log store and further workshop area. There is also a ground floor bathroom. To the first floor are three bedrooms. Subject to the necessary planning consents, one could potentially look at replacing the current side and rear extensions, with further single or two storey extensions to provide a spacious four/five bedroom detached family home. There is potential for direct access on the far end to the Pegasus Way which is an open bridleway, as well as a large network of bridleways that can be accessed from here, both North and South of the A3079, including Northcombe Equestrian and the Grange Equestrian Centre nearby.
