This “enchanting” cottage for sale sits beside an historic viaduct and has panoramic river views. 

Railway Cottage, in Calstock, sits next to Calstock Viaduct, which is an Edwardian construct built as part of the Plymouth, Devonport and South West Junction Railway in 1908. 

The property itself is thought to date back to the mid-1800s, much like the Grade II listed cottages that surround it. 

The cottage spans three floors, with the ground floor comprising an open plan living area with a fireplace and log-burner, a kitchen and an adjoining utility room.

On the top floor of the cottage, there are two large bedrooms, both with fireplaces, and a bathroom.
