Looking to move to a Devon village, or seek an Ofsted rated 'Outstanding' secondary school? This could be the one! Offering extensive accommodation with a home office and adjoining self-contained, two-bedroom annexe. Popular location with quick access to the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway Station - perfect for commuting.
Copper Cavern is aptly named as it was built by the current owner, a local plumber, for his own occupation in 2000. Carefully designed and built to a high specification, with lots of extras, the house offers very comfortable and well-appointed accommodation, ideal for both a family or retired folk alike. In fact, with the adjoining two-bedroom annexe for grandparents, it would ideally suit extended family, or this space could be used for older children or perhaps be let as an Airbnb.
To help save energy costs, there are some thermal solar panels on the roof, which help heat the domestic water during the spring and summer months.
The main house offers plenty of living space with a large kitchen, fitted in oak, with a moveable island dining bar, and an Aga, giving a lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere and used for cooking. The adjoining sitting and dining rooms both have gas fires and underfloor heating, and the tiled flooring extends through to the conservatory. These rooms can be used as one, with folding doors opened, and are ideal for parties as there is as even a purpose-built bar in the corner! The versatile, downstairs accommodation also has a study, for home working, a utility room and cloakroom.
Upstairs, there is a large master bedroom, with a dressing table with lighting over, and an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms, including a guest, double room with vanity unit, and a family bathroom, fully tiled with a spa bath and large shower cubicle included in the white suite.
A paddle staircase leads from the landing to the second floor and the ultimate games room (or large bedroom), with a wide screen TV, pool table, pinball machine and table football, all of which may be included in the sale, under separate negotiation.
Copper Cavern has a secure, gated entrance with a keypad and telecom security, leading to the brick paved drive and parking area, in front of the garage. Above which, there is a luxurious, self-contained annexe with an open plan kitchen, dining and living area, two double bedrooms and a shower room. The loft room of the annexe, accessed by ladder, has windows, light and power and is currently used for a 'Scalextric' set.
Further parking with 'Astro-turf', and easy to maintain garden extend across the front of the house to the side, where there is a secluded patio, with raised beds, a hot-tub and garden shed to one side.
To conclude, this spacious home is nicely tucked away and would work very well for anyone wishing to own an impressive village residence, perfect for homeworking and partying at the weekends!
