Words cannot define the beauty of this cottage!
Standing in glorious well-tended and sizable grounds this beautiful grade 2 listed, three bedroom, semi detached thatched property is indicative of an iconic Devon chocolate box cottage.
This beautiful secluded cottage is positioned within an idyllic but not isolated rural setting, surrounded by glorious quintessential Devon countryside.
Accessed from a private drive, shared with the neighbouring property, a double garage provides ample space for secure and dry parking with lighting and power supply. A gate opens up into the wonderful and sizeable landscaped gardens with an attractive path leading you to the front door of the cottage.
Immediately, the cottage gives you a warm and welcoming feel with a wealth of history and period features.
The living room is a good size with a classic inglenook fireplace and multi-fuel burner, that instantly draws the eye and makes a superb focal point to the room. A traditional bread oven sits to the side and the fireplace is finished with a large timber lintel. Two separate windows allow natural light to flood in whilst also providing views over the lower garden.
The kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted with bespoke Shaker style cupboards, that are finished with solid oak worktops complementing the property. A double Belfast sink sits beneath the window where views across the grounds can be enjoyed. A Rangemaster 90 cooker, that includes LPG gas hobs with double electric ovens complete the suite. A pantry cupboard provides further storage space for additional kitchen essentials.
Adjoining the kitchen is a handy utility room with additional worktop space and room for white goods to be positioned.
A separate dining/sun room is positioned to the rear of the property which provides ample space for family dining. French doors lead out onto the garden terrace and outdoor dining area, making it a great place to entertain. Adjoining the dining room is a cloak/shower room that has a modern suite, including a corner shower, w/c, wash basin and heated towel rail.
The first floor landing continues to impress with character features and includes a useful full height built-in storage and airing cupboard.
The master bedroom lies to the front of the property and overlooks the garden and surrounding countryside. It is a well-proportioned room that easily accommodates a king size bed. It also benefits from an unusually high ceiling and exposed beam.
The second bedroom is also south facing with a high ceiling. It has lovely views of the garden and has a useful built in wardrobe that provides plenty of storage.
Bedroom three is a double room that is positioned to the rear of the property and enjoys views of the surrounding grounds.
The bathroom was sympathetically upgraded in 2018. It has an attractive modern suite that includes a bath with stylish mosaic tiled surrounds, w/c and wash basin, large heated towel rail and a useful cupboard for storing towels and bathroom accessories.
Sat in approximately half an acre, the south facing gardens catch the all-day sun making this the perfect garden for those wanting tranquillity and relaxation. The grounds have been well planned with a variety of areas to enjoy, such as a fantastic pond which has its own ornamental stream that rises from underground and cascades down through the garden returning to the source.
Large areas of lawn are ideal for family life and are home to several fruit bearing trees such as Apple, Pear, Quince, Medlar and Walnut. Additionally, there is a productive vegetable garden and greenhouse. There is also an outbuilding with ample space for garden implements and machinery. The gardens and outbuilding also have the convenience of an external power supply.
In 2021, the sellers invested a significant sum of money to install a new high quality and modern sewerage treatment plant and drainage facility. This will allow buyers to feel assured that the system conforms to current legislation and will last for many years to come.
