Newtown, Cornwood, Ivybridge

Newtown Cornwood Ivybridge PL21 9QL
  • Guide price £285,000


Christopher’s are pleased to present this spacious 3 bed semi-detached home set in this highly sought after rural village on the southern fringes of the Dartmoor National Park.


Newtown is within walking distance of the village centre and offers light and airy accommodation that has already been subjected to some renovations to include replastering upstairs and a newly fitted luxury bathroom. Downstairs has been redecorated but there is certainly scope to take advantage of the great work already started and enhance this space with your own touches. Downstairs is currently configured with an entrance hall and cloakroom, large sitting room with open fireplace and doors to the conservatory which is currently used as part of the kitchen/diner. The conservatory certainly lends itself to re-imagining and subject to the relevant consents (strc) could benefit from a replacement rear extension and overall re-design. Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and a large single with a family bathroom (newly fitted) completing the accommodation. Outside there is parking for 3-4 vehicles at the front with a pedestrian gate leading to the side path. This area houses a number of sheds and log stores beyond which is the delightful south facing garden with level lawn and separate sitting area ideal for sharing time with family and friends.
PLEASE NOTE: This property has a Devon Local Occupancy Restriction and would make a superb home for a first-time buyer or those looking to downsize to this charming village setting.

Situation & Amenities

Cornwood sits in open countryside on the edge of Dartmoor, yet only four miles from the greater facilities of Ivybridge and eight miles from the Waterfront City of Plymouth. The main part of the village sits above the River Yealm valley and was once part of an important trading route which carried tin, wool and cattle between Tavistock and Totnes giving it a rich South Hams history.
The village has a population of around a thousand people and a strong community spirit with everything you would want on your doorstep. The local village shop and tearoom/café supports many local producers stocking fresh local milk, meat, honey, vegetables and locally baked bread. The Cornwood Inn is also community-owned serving food and drinks and acts as a focal point for activities that bring people together. It is a hub for outdoor activities, such as walking or cycling, with somewhere to store your equipment and meet up before setting out or a warm welcome on your return. Alongside the ever popular and successful Cornwood Cricket Club, the village is also home to the church of St Michael and All Angels. The Church of England Primary School is currently rated good by Oftsed with a pre-school on the same site and it feeds into Ivybridge Community College with its World Class Quality Mark Award and fantastic sport facilities. Further community facilities such as Health Centres, Dentists, Libraries, Supermarkets, Leisure Facilities and Transport Links can be found in nearby Ivybridge and Plymouth beyond.
