This classic period cottage offers very comfortable accommodation, perfect for those seeking a fine village residence, a short step from the local amenities and bus services. Quick access to M5/Tiverton Parkway station.
The Lodge, lies in the Victorian, Grantlands Estate, dated 1864, which has been divided into a small number of private residences, in the centre of Uffculme. As the name suggests, the cottage is the first property on the left on entering Grantlands and as you enter its own private, gated drive, you immediately feel nicely tucked away, then the enviable view hits you! This extends over rolling countryside towards the wooded ridge of Gaddon and can be enjoyed from all the principle rooms of the cottage and the garden.
The Lodge has been very well-maintained over the years and provides very clean and tidy accommodation, which is ready to occupy, yet some may wish to update and refurbish to taste.
On approach, the drive leads to a generous parking area, with a large garage and adjoining carport, ideal for any car enthusiast or someone wishing to have a workshop. Behind these, there is an enclosed, walled courtyard garden with raised beds and a potting shed, perfect for keen gardeners, and a useful laundry room. The main garden lies to the side of the cottage with a gently sloping lawn surrounded by established flower and shrub beds.
The Lodge lies a short step from the local amenities, including a doctor's surgery close- by, Co op and mini market, hairdressers, a post office, local pubs, a church, village hall, recreation field and veterinary practice. The primary school is popular and the secondary school, Uffculme School, is OFSTED rated 'Outstanding'.
The nearby towns of Tiverton, Cullompton and Wellington provide more extensive services and both the cathedral city of Exeter and the Somerset county town of Taunton are readily accessible via the M5 motorway and regular bus services from the village.
