This fine residence known as Manor Cottage was previously owned by the Duchy of Cornwall and was originally two cottages. It has been lived in by our client since 2002. During this time the property has been completely renovated and in 2007 was significantly extended to compliment what is today luxuriously appointed accommodation which would no doubt suit a wide variety of purchasers. The highly flexible home has attractive landscaped gardens which amounts to some 0.75 of an acre which is adjacent to open farmland. Beneath the extension is a very useful basement storage area which could have potential (subject to obtaining all necessary consents to be expanded upon into residential accommodation). The home is positioned in the heart of this small picturesque village which is part of a conservation area with a strong community.
The following is a quotation from the home owner:
"The beautiful rural setting has been the perfect tonic for relaxing from work. The village is peaceful, the community spirit thriving with many events throughout the year. Our family have felt very close to nature and never cease to be amazed at the diversity of wildlife that visit the pond, bird table and garden. The property is ideally placed for walking and cycling and enjoying nearby woodlands and the beautiful Tamar Valley (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty)."
Beyond the most appealing stone faced exterior (which has recently been exposed from the previous render finish) lies the spacious and flexible accommodation which is full of character and charm.

The extension has really transformed the property as it provides an extra bedroom and a huge sitting room. The latter is triple aspect and again has an oak floor with a large glazed area with douglas fir frame and double doors opening out to the garden. Immediately outside of this room is a gravelled seating area which is the perfect place for outside dining and entertaining during the warmer months.

There are four bedrooms all of which are large enough to accommodate a double bed. The master bedroom has a large built in wardrobe and bedroom furniture.
