Stover Cottage is a semi-detached property which was converted around 15 years ago from one of the original farm barns of the Stover Estate and offers a bright, spacious contemporary family home.

It has underfloor heating throughout, a contemporary wood-burner in the living room, reception hall with double height ceiling/galleried landing leading to four double bedrooms (one en-suite), and a fabulous family room-kitchen. There is an array of PV panels supplementing the electricity supply.

Included with the property are three excellent modern outbuildings, two of which are currently used as studio space and the largest as storage. These buildings could be suitable for a variety of uses, subject to any required consents. The gardens are private with a south-facing patio and raised lawn, stone-chipped areas with raised shrubbery beds, polytunnel, summerhouse and a full-sized hard tennis court. The garden and surrounding countryside attracts much wild life including an abundance of bird-song.

Staplehill Road is situated on the outskirts of Liverton, south of the A38. Local amenities within walking distance include two pubs, the excellent Blackpool primary school, Liverton Post Office/general stores and Trago Mills shopping centre.

The A38 provides quick access to Exeter and Plymouth, and Dartmoor is just a few minutes drive away. Public paths/bridle ways give access to good walking country including to the Stover Nature Reserve.
