Cherry Tree Farmhouse is a semi detached Victorian home built in 1894. Typical of the time it has generous rooms and high ceilings and being in a rural setting it enjoys views across the Dartmoor countryside. Adjacent to the house, on site and detached, is an annexe with garaging and there is plenty of off street parking. The accommodation in the house comprises an entrance hall, a spacious sitting/dining room, a walk-in pantry, a kitchen and a cloakroom on the ground floor. On the first floor is a bright landing and two generous double bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower above the bath. On the top floor is a landing/work station, a double bedroom and a great ensuite shower room with rural views. The adjacent annexe has a very large garage on the ground floor which would be ideal as a classic car garage or workshop and the upper ground floor accommodation has an entrance hall, a shower room, a study/nursery, an open plan living room with a kitchen and a separate double bedroom. The front garden is elevated and has rural views and the generous garden at the back has space for raised vegetable and fruit planters, a large grassed area and a large timber outbuilding with planning permission for a garden office. There is space for two cars at the front and at least two more alongside the annexe on a slope that leads to the back garden. This is a really attractive family home with flexible accommodation which can provide for multi-generational living or working space. Fowlers very strongly recommend viewing this lovely home.
