Full Property Details

A delightful semi detached, period cottage with rural views, pretty cottage gardens, ample parking and garage set in approx a third of an acre.

1 High Bolham is situated in a rural, yet convenient location just outside the pretty Devon village of Oakford and within easy reach of Bampton, a charming country town offering a good range of amenities including shops, pubs and doctors surgery. The larger market town of Tiverton lies 10 miles to the south with dual carriageway access to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway mainline station which provides regular intercity services to London (Paddington 2 hours). The whole area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty with the Exmoor National Park only a few miles to the north with its beautiful deep wooded valleys and heather moors ideal for a wide range of country pursuits.

Believed to date from the 1920's, 1 High Bolham is a charming, semi-detached property with delightful cottage gardens and lovely rural views.
The cottage has been well maintained by the current owners to provide a most welcoming country home with stripped pine doors and wooden flooring upstairs. On the ground floor is a spacious kitchen/dining room with a woodburning stove, teracotta tiled floor, fitted kitchen units with a Belfast sink, space for electric cooker and washing machine, a useful understair pantry cupboard with light and power, as well as a shelved storage cupboard. The cosy sitting room benefits from an open fireplace and wooden flooring. Leading off the entrance hall is the garden room with a sink and patio doors to the garden, next to the garden room is a smart family bathroom including a bath with electric shower over. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, the principal bedroom is double aspect with views and a built-in hanging cupboard. The landing has an airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and there is a hatch to the roof space which is insulated and part boarded.

The gardens are a particular feature of the property with a pretty cottage garden to the front with well stocked flower and herbaceous borders, a small pond and a patio area leading off the garden room. In addition, there is a further area of ground which is currently used as wild meadow, and attracts an abundance of wildlife.

The garage has doors to the front and a pedestrian door to the rear, with light and power connected. The property benefits from ample parking with a driveway suitable for two cars and the wild garden area can be used for additional parking.

Please see the floor plan for the dimensions. The internal photos have been taken with a wide angle lens to show more of the rooms.

From Bampton proceed out of the town on the B3227 in the South Molton direction for about 1 mile. At the Black Cat Junction proceed over the bridge which crosses the River Exe, following the signs for South Molton and continue up the valley passing the turning for Oakford on the left and on the bend just before the T junction for approximately 2.3 miles along the entrance driveway to 1 High Bolham will be seen on the right hand side marked with a For Sale board.
