A gem of a house hidden behind the lively small high street of Chagford concealing a lovely large walled garden. The house can be used in many ways. The current owner sleeps on the large top floor which has a separate shower and w.c., and her visiting grandchildren use the ground floor with its adjoining bathroom and small sitting room. The large drawing room with a fireplace overlooks the garden and Dartmoor, and the large cosy family kitchen with an Aga is alongside. There is a large double garage with electricity installed which is suitable for two medium sized cars but which would be an ideal workshop or storage area, and it has an integral staircase leading up to the kitchen. The house has been completely renovated with a new boiler, central heating and a new roof. There is available by separate negotiation a lock up garage in the town. The owner has only been in residence for two years and is regrettably selling for family reasons.
