Located in a semi-rural location yet still within striking distance of Ilfracombe town, Haverstock Cottage is a Grade II listed, three bedroom detached cottage benefitting from countryside views, a splendid rear garden and a detached garage/workshop. With records dating the property back to the late middle ages, the property has some real standout character features such as two inglenook fireplaces and original doors.
Upon entering the property via the timber stable door, the entrance hall provides an ideal space to house shoes and coats before going through an original door complete with doorbell into the dining room. It is here you first notice the historic charm of the property via the first inglenook fireplace and thick window openings. Going directly through to the lounge, the second inglenook fireplace gives this room an impressive charm alongside the exposed wood ceiling beams. A downstairs office leads through to a modern four piece bathroom.
The kitchen is full of country charm from the solid wood worktops through to the stable door spilling out to the garden. In length totalling 22ft, the second half of the kitchen could house a dining table allowing the dining room to be utilised as an additional reception room.
To the first floor a window seat overlooks the nearby country side and has three double bedrooms and WC leading from the landing area.
The garden to the rear of the property really does has something for everyone. From lawned sections, summer houses, patio areas and pergolas, the real surprise is the wooden hut tucked into the corner of the garden. Here lies the potential to become an office, art studio or an Air BnB.
To the side of the property is a block built timber doored garage which is currently used as a workshop. The structure is of a considerable size allowing for multiple uses i.e. housing cars alongside being a workshop.
Attached to the property is an original store room where the oil tank and boiler for heating of the property is kept. The area is perfect for storing wood for the fireplaces and storing large items as well.
