Within a stone's throw of the River Dart, a lovely cottage in need of modernisation with nearly an acre of garden, garage and parking.
Yew Tree Cottage is situated in the heart of the village of Dittisham and is within a stone's throw of the River Dart. Parts of the house are over 200 years old, including some of the stone walls and the inglenook, but mostly it dates from work that was carried out in the 1950s, and has been a well-loved home for the current family for over 60 yearsDuring the 1960s, part of the neighbouring Pink Thorn's Orchard was purchased by the family so they could expand their market garden in the village, hence why the garden is one of the largest in the area. The house which is now in need of modernisation throughout, offers a wonderful opportunity to create a beautiful home, complemented by 0.81 acres of well established gardens, parking, a garage and of course, beautiful River Dart views. Yew Tree Cottage sits in the Conservation Area but is not listed.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors with a fully boarded attic (not inspected). The entrance lobby leads through to the main sitting room with an open fireplace (not used) and two large windows offering beautiful views of the River Dart. The second sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace and exposed stone wall. The kitchen is fitted with units and provides access to the utility room, pantry and cloakroom. On the first floor are five bedrooms and a shower room and from four of the bedrooms, gorgeous river views can be enjoyed.
Outside, the gardens extend to 0.81 acres and are quite simply a hidden delight, being largely lawn with an abundance of spring bulbs, and well stocked with trees, shrubs and plants. There is driveway parking for two cars and a garage.

The garden is a wonderful surprise, being far larger than expected and perfect for making dens! Also being able to walk to one of the best waterside bistros in the South Hams is a real advantage!Sarah-Jane Bingham-Chick
