Thought to date from the 17th century, 6 New Street is a grade two listed, thatched cottage, which has had a complete internal and external refurbishment including, re-wiring, oak pattress boxes and Bakelite switches and sockets, electric underfloor heating, a new contemporary kitchen with all new fitted appliances and a granite fireplace with Morsø wood burning stove. Upstairs there is a bright, light, landing with space for a study area, desk and shelves, with electrical sockets and telephone jack for internet connection and a wall light above the desk area. There are two bedrooms, one single one double (king size) and a smart new shower room with generous shower. There has been great attention to the details and this cottage really has to be viewed to be appreciated. This cottage has enormous potential as a holiday cottage investment with predicted gross earnings of between £18,000-£21,000pa, but it is currently a really lovely full time home. Outside there is a small garden of two terraced areas, both take a table and chairs for outside dining, one is cobbled and the other has flagstones and there is a potted garden with trees and shrubs. Both south facing terraces are real sun traps. From the stone terrace, there are five steps up to the car parking level where there is private off road parking for one car with potential for an electric charging point.
6 New Street is sited in a quieter spot only only 150 paces around the corner from the bustling town square in the ancient Stannary Town of Chagford in the Dartmoor National Park. It has excellent access to the amenities the town offers including a wide variety day to day and specialist shops, four pubs, cafes and restaurants. The town is surrounded by countryside, riverside and moorland walks, with good sports facilities, a football and cricket pitch, tennis club and bowling club, a skate park, children’s play park and an open air heated swimming pool in the summertime. The A30 dual carriageway is approximately 5 miles away, allowing easy access to Okehampton approximately 12 miles away and to Cornwall in one direction and Exeter (20 miles) and the M5 motorway in the other.
The double glazed panelled front door leads into a partly separated lobby with an oak screen to shield the kitchen area. There is an LED downlighter, a built in meter cupboard for the circuit breakers and smart meter, an oak topped seat and a fitted door mat. A single step rises into the living room

The other main terrace is paved with flagstones and has full width steps up to the gate and car parking. There is an outside light to the right of the back door and a water pipe for an outside tap to be fitted if needed. There is a garden shed with shelves, lighting, and double power points. The terrace is a real south facing sun trap. The stone boundary wall flowerbed is part of the property, as is the new feather board fencing on the left hand side. Some of the climbing plants have been planted along the boundary fence to the right, and there are cables to trail plants over.
There is a single parking space at the end of the garden beyond the gate. The four properties along this terrace pay for access across the tarmac driveway of the village hall property beyond. The village hall issues a licence each year, and this is granted at their discretion. The licences help towards the maintenance of the village hall.
