Pure Devon! A spacious, late Victorian cottage with a panoramic view over the Exe Valley, four acres of pasture and a beautiful garden. A perfect rural location, ideal for commuting to Exeter.
Ravens Cottage, believed to have been built c. 1900, is a classic rural cottage, lying in a secluded position on the flank of the Exe Valley and enjoying enviable views, with a fine sunny aspect.
Typical of its era, the accommodation offers well-proportioned, principal rooms, with a large dining room and adjoining sitting room, both with fireplaces. A sunroom has been added in more recent years to one side, to make the very best of the southerly aspect and rural outlook, and beside this, there is a perfect home office or hobbies room. The kitchen, at the north end of the cottage, is smaller and dated, with an adjoining utility area and bootroom. This could be remodelled significantly, as could it all, with scope for updating and plenty of space around the cottage for extension.
From the entrance hall, there is a cloakroom. Upstairs, via a wide turning staircase, there are three generous double bedrooms and the family bathroom, fitted with a fine primrose suite from the seventies, very tidy and more than functional!
One of the prime features of the property is the mature garden, which has been lovingly tended by the owner over the last 50 years. For any keen gardener, there is beautiful range of established flowers, shrubs and trees, ensuring interest and colour throughout the seasons. Also, a large vegetable, soft fruit and herb garden, a pretty, wildlife pond, greenhouse, two sheds, lawn, and a small orchard with wildflowers.
Beyond the garden, there is a paddock of approximately 4 acres, laid to pasture and fenced, with a water supply, and gateway access from the lane.
The property has the following services:
Private well water supply with UV filtration plant. Private sewage treatment plant.
Private oil tank for central heating.
Whilst offering the best of rural Devon, Ravens Cottage lies only 1.5 miles from the large and popular village of Silverton with a good range of local amenities, including a primary school, village shop and post office, doctor's surgery, pubs and churches. The cathedral city of Exeter, 9 miles to the south, offers a full range of shopping, education and recreation facilities and is a thriving city, and the market town of Tiverton lies to the north and offers good amenities.
