This property has not been on the market for over 60 years. It is a bright and surprisingly spacious town centre cottage just off the Square with three reception rooms and a kitchen and garden room on the ground floor, whilst upstairs there are three double bedrooms, a bathroom, w.C. And box room. It has a charming cottage garden with a 'pit' greenhouse and rear pedestrian access. It is supremely convenient for access to Chagford's superb amenities and Fowlers very strongly recommend viewing this rare opportunity.
No 22 The Square is just off the lower part of Chagford's bustling traditional town square and as such is in a surprisingly quiet spot with a view up the Square, but little of the noise. It is just a few moments walk to all the shops and amenities and just ten paces from the lych gate entrance to the parish church. Chagford has a wide variety of day to day and specialist shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants, surgeries for doctor, dentist and vet and a primary school, pre school and Montessori school. The town is surrounded by countryside, riverside and moorland walks and there are good sports facilities with a football and cricket pitch, bowling club, tennis club, skate park, play park and an open air swimming pool in the summertime. Exeter is approximately 20 miles and the A30 dual carriageway approximately 5 miles.
