Full Details

West Down Cottage is a period detached house, found in a lovely rural position with fields to the front and rear offering a lovely outlook. Cheriton Bishop, with A30 access, and Yeoford are both found just 5 minutes drive away.

The cottage is in need of improvement throughout, but offers great potential in the right hands, either by just renovating the existing property, or even more so by extending to create something really quite special (subject to permissions).

The existing layout offers three good sized bedrooms and the family bathroom upstairs. Downstairs there is a study / 4th bedroom, a large living room with fireplace and a kitchen diner with a now redundant solid fuel Rayburn. There is also a lean-to side entrance with WC to the rear and an attached outbuilding/workshop with power. It may also be possible to remove the chimneys to give more internal space, but a structural engineer would be recommended if you were to do this.

Outside: The plot extends to over 0.4 acres with the large gardens backing onto fields, with a mature orchard to the top, there is also parking for 4 vehicles, with scope to create more if desired (again STP).

The property is vacant and so sold with no onward chain.

Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

CHERITON BISHOP is a village situated at the northern borders of Dartmoor National Park – between the City of Exeter and the town of Okehampton. The farmlands adjoining Cheriton undulate with true Devon character, gradually rising towards Dartmoor, where altitudes creep to heights in excess of 1000 ft above sea level. The village is ideally placed for hassle free access to the A30 dual carriageway, a direct injection into Exeter (10 miles) and a great route west to Cornwall. Facilities include, a parish church, two prosperous inns, a primary school and a Doctor’s surgery. Fancy sloshing a drink around and wiggling to a beat? For music lovers: Cheriton hosts two annual festivals at the Woodleigh Coach House – ‘The Gig in The Garden’ and ‘Jam in June’, the perfect opportunity to see some talented local acts.

DIRECTIONS : The property is situated next to the Evangelical Chapel, between Yeoford & Cheriton Bishop.
