No. 17/02805/OUT - Teignbridge District Council - see plans online or request a copy from us. The land is being sold separately with a Guide Price £150- £200,000 but can be purchased together with the Cottage with a Guide Price £350-£400,000.

From Exeter proceed out of the city centre, over Exe Bridges and take the second exit into Cowick Street. Carry on through this road and up and over Dunsford Hill turning right at the bottom of the hill towards Tedburn St Mary, carry on along this road into the village of Tedburn St Mary where Chapel cottage can be found on the left just after the mini roundabout.

Chapel cottage is situated in the heart of the popular village of Tedburn St Mary. This nestles in attractive Devon countryside and benefits from a village shop/post office, two pubs, primary school and various leisure facilities. The village is approximately 7.5 miles to the west of the university and cathedral city of Exeter which has an impressive range of amenities befitting a centre of its importance including excellent dining, shopping, theatre and sporting and recreational pursuits. There are two mainline railway stations on the London Waterloo and Paddington lines and Exeter International Airport lies a few miles to the east of the city.
Tedburn St Mary has excellent access to the A30 dual carriageway linking to the M5 motorway in the east and Cornwall in the west. The village lies a few miles outside the northern boundary of the Dartmoor National Park which has many thousands of beautiful unspoilt moorland acres in which to enjoy a range of outdoor pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and fishing etc.

This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a delightful village cottage which is coming to the market for the first time in over 60 years now with fantastic potential for modernisation and improvement throughout. Standing in its own good sized garden the cottage occupies a lovely position with some pretty views over parts of the village and beyond to fields and hills beyond.
The accommodation is full of character and includes on the ground floor an entrance porch leading to a small lobby area with doors off to the sitting room on one side and a dining/family room on the other. There is a tiny kitchen with very basic fittings. A door from the dining room leads to a staircase which provides access to the upstairs rooms. There is a pretty landing and 3 bedrooms plus a bathroom with a 3 piece suite.
Outside, the cottage is accessed by a pair of wonderful old iron gates which provide access to a driveway and on to an attached good sized garage attached to the rear of the cottage. To the side of the garage there is a useful store room. The gardens which are a good size are in the main laid to lawn being mainly level or gently sloping and very pretty. - The adjoining orchard has outline planning consent granted for up to two dwellings and so some of/all of the current old outhouses will probably be demolished and a new boundary fence erected as appropriate by the developer.
