3 Boohay Cottages represents a rare opportunity. This traditional stone built 2/3 bedroomed former estate/farm workers cottage backs onto unspoilt farmland. The property benefits from oil central heating and extensive double glazing, but leaves potential for updating and improvement. A particular feature is the lovely mature garden, well stocked with shrubs and timber garden stores. Parking available for two vehicles with separate access close by.
3 Boohay Cottages occupies a highly attractive and secluded rural setting, set back from a tiny country lane, in the historic farmstead of Boohay. The surrounding countryside of rolling Devon hills is particularly scenic and unspoilt, offering excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits. The nearby village of Kingswear is about 1.5 miles and lies on the east bank of the River Dart. It has a small and interesting range of shops, cafes and restaurants and is home to the Royal Dart Yacht Club and the final stop for the Dartmouth and Paignton steam railway. There is a ferry link to historic Dartmouth, famous for its Naval college and wonderful shops and hotels. Dartmouth also offers good primary and secondary education. Brixham and Paignton are also both within easy reach with further extensive shopping facilities and convenient road and rail links.
