To the rear is a garden with a lawned area and an upper terrace. On the ground floor the accommodation comprises an entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen, dining area , utility room and a downstairs w.c. On the first floor is a landing, two double bedrooms and a bathroom and on the top floor is a lovely big double bedroom. Fowlers very strongly recommend viewing this home to truly appreciate it.



Pethybridge is set in the outskirts of lovely Lustleigh and Highcroft is in an elevated spot enjoying gorgeous, far reaching views over the village and valley.
