A stunning detached cottage with recovered thatch offering tastefully modernised accommodation with much charm and character, large gardens and situated in a picturesque East Devon village.
The subject of an extensive programme of modernisation and refurbishment in 2017, this charming cottage now offers remodelled and extended accommodation, giving a contemporary feel yet retaining charm and character throughout. There is a sympathetic combination of modern fixtures, fittings and décor combined with exposed ceiling beams, bespoke timber framed double glazing and panel doors.
Off the spacious hallway is a most impressive 40’ kitchen/dining and living room. The kitchen area is fitted with a good range of units, having polished granite worksurfaces, integrated appliances, a large preparation island with breakfast bar and tri-fold door opening into the rear garden. The room
extends into a dining area, beyond which is a stunning living space with double height vaulted ceiling and floor to ceiling glazing to the rear, overlooking the south facing garden. The separate sitting room is double aspect with a south facing bay and tri-fold door. There is a delightful Inglenook fireplace, whilst recessed bookshelves hide a secret doorway opening into the study.
On the first floor, the master bedroom has double aspect windows, built in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, both with built in storage and a well appointed main bathroom.
There are timber framed double glazed windows throughout, central heating, via an LPG boiler. The thatch was recovered in June 2020.
The cottage stands on a generous plot in all offering approximately one and a quarter acres, with formal gardens surrounding the cottage, predominantly laid to lawn. The rear enjoys a south facing aspect, good size level lawn with two foot bridges leading over a culvert to further garden and grounds. Steps rise to an elevated area of garden where there are fine views over the surrounding area. To the front, a gravel driveway leads to parking, turning and a garage.
The property stands in a beautiful setting, close to the centre of the village with amenities including regular bus services to Sidmouth and Honiton, convenience store/butchers, public house, village hall and primary school. Glorious countryside walks are close by, whilst the coastal town of Sidmouth is approximately three miles away.
