Full Property Details

Ivy Cottage is located in a wonderfully private situation, quietly tucked away just off one of the town's historic streets and yet being within easy walking distance of the town centre.

The cottage, believed to be a former weavers cottage dates back to the 1800's, with a later extension now providing surprisingly spacious and well-maintained accommodation.

At the rear of the cottage is a delightful and secluded south facing walled garden that is not overlooked at all, and enjoys views over the adjoining River Exe to the countryside beyond.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and contains many charming character features with a lovely wood burning stove in the sitting room, a dining room with French doors out to a patio, an interesting inglenook in the kitchen, with an inset bespoke cupboard shaped to the soldier arch of the old fireplace, but most importantly, the feeling of seclusion just off the town centre is quite a surprise!

The kitchen is complimented by a utility room / rear porch and a cloakroom, a door from here leads to the rear garden. The kitchen has space for a breakfast table, and there is space for a dining table in the living room.

On the first floor, the master bedroom is dual aspect and has lovely views over the River Exe and built in wardrobes and drawers provide plenty of storage. The second bedroom is a double and the third is currently used as a study but would certainly make a very good single bedroom. The bathroom now offers a large walk-in shower cubicle, with attractive flooring and tiling.

The garden is delightful - you just would not expect such a secluded spot in the centre of Tiverton. The sound of the river is hypnotic and despite it being the middle of winter, being south facing, the sun was streaming in.

Tiverton has a good shopping centre and an excellent range of facilities including a modern hospital, sports complex, bowling clubs and an excellent 18-hole golf course. Junction 27 of the M5 motorway lies about 7 miles to the South with its adjoining Parkway Station from where one can reach London Paddington in about 2½ hours.
