A stunning village house with an amazing interior that needs to be viewed, located in the ever popular village of Sampford Peverell.
Situated in the heart of the sought after village of Sampford Peverell, this cottage holds a real treat within. The vendors have spent a great deal of effort in creating a modern family home from this historic cottage, which at one point in the past was a village haberdashery.
The accommodation is surprisingly spacious with over 1300ft² of living space. The main door is to the side of the cottage, accessed through the courtyard garden and entering into the reception hall. Your eye is instantly drawn through the entire length of the cottage, through the kitchen, the dining area and into the sitting room. The sitting room can be cleverly closed off from the rest of the cottage with double folding doors, or left open to create a large sociable space - great for keeping an eye on the children and what an incredible space for Christmas Day!
A large utility room is found just off the reception hall, and steps lead down into the beautifully appointed kitchen. The central island dominates the kitchen, with its integrated ceramic hob and provides an excellent work station and has six deep drawers which are perfect for pots and pans. The beech work surface dark blue base contrast well with the rest of the Shaker Style kitchen with its composite working surfaces. A double Belfast sink is very useful but there is no need to do the washing up as you will find an integrated dishwasher on hand! The eye level twin ovens are self-cleaning and there is space for a fridge freezer. The laundry goods are catered for in the utility room, where there is also plenty of storage for all the unsightly necessities such as hoovers etc...
A step drops down into the dining area where there is plenty of space for a large dining table and chairs and here you will find additional storage including a built in wine cooler. The sitting room is separated from the dining room with double folding doors, making this a most adaptable space. With the doors open, the ground floor is impressively spacious and makes for a family friendly area. In the evenings, with the doors closed, the electric multi fuel effect stove glowing, the room becomes very cosy.
From the kitchen, a door leads through to an inner hall which has stairs to the first floor and a door giving access to the rear of the property. The first floor landing is light and spacious and has room enough to provide an additional seating area - perhaps a peaceful space to take time to read. Bedroom one is a large double room with a dual aspect. Bedroom two is another large double room with a front aspect. Bedroom three is a good size double room with front aspect. Bedroom four is a single room with front aspect, used by the current vendors as a home office. The bathroom has a beautiful matching white suite comprising a separate glass corner shower with power shower, WC, and wash basin. An additional shower room is newly fitted with a modern suite, with a double walk-in power shower, WC and wash basin.
Outside, there is a small courtyard garden but quite frankly who needs more, when you have wonderful walks alongside the canal within a stone's throw, and the children's play park in the centre of the village along with tennis courts. The local pub also has a garden with a children's play area and what better an excuse than to pop to the pub to keep the children entertained? Within a short drive there are plenty of country walks and rural Devon is right on your doorstep.
Sampford Peverell has long been a very popular village, with a great community, and many village amenities and clubs. It also falls within the Uffculme School catchment, which is a very popular local school and many look to move into the area to secure a place for their children. The village also provides excellent access to the Parkway train station and J27 of the M5. The Grand Western Canal, which is a 'Country Park', also runs through the village and there are some very pretty walks to be enjoyed along the tow path.
From Junction 27 of the M5, take the North Devon Link Road, leaving at the first exit, signed for Sampford Peverell. Drive into the village and just after passing The Globe Inn on the right, the property will be found a short way further on, on the right.
