Waterman House occupies a bold corner site within the small South Dartmoor town of Buckfastleigh with local shops and amenities an easy level walk away.

Buckfastleigh is situated roughly at the mid-way point between the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter and the A38 provides quick easy access to both. The town has a health centre, primary school, post office, heated outdoor pool, parks, tennis courts, football and rugby clubs, along with numerous cultural clubs and societies.

Totnes is around a twenty minute drive and as well as offering a wide range of shops and facilities, has a mainline railway station with London Paddington connection.The spectacular wide open landscape of Dartmoor is just up the road and the South Devon coastline less than half an hour by car.

Waterman House is believed in parts to date back several centuries and was superbly refurbished around 8 years ago. It has up to 9 bedrooms in total, including a self-contained 2 bedroom annexe, and could readily suit an extended family or for generating income from letting (subject to the required consents).

The accommodation is beautifully maintained and presented with attractive modern fittings whilst retaining much of its original period character and charm.

To the rear of the building is a garden area and off-road parking, which is a rare find in the older part of the town.

This large family home provides the potential, if required, to split informally or formally, subject to the required consents.
