Property Description

Owning this cottage is owning part of Devon’s rich history. In fact, this is the second time the current Vendor has owned it in the past 20 years!

There is a cobbled area at the front to either side of the thatched porch which provides for parking. This Grade ll listed detached cottage offers painted elevations over principally cob all under a thatched roof which was redone at the front and ridge about 2 years ago. There are many features throughout this delightful home and stepping though the fine front door you realise you are in something quite special. One of the biggest surprises is the size of the reception area now open plan and forming both a sitting room and dining room at a slight difference in height with both allowing for big furniture, a feature not often found in cottages.

Without doubt a major feature and aptly described in the Official Listing of Historic England is in their words “a very large open fireplace virtually the width of the room with roughly chamfered wooden lintel and granite jamb to the left”. A modern style coal effect stove sits proudly within. Also mentioned in the listing is the bench seat set against the rear wall of the sitting room beside the stable door that leads to the rear porch. The dining room is a delightful area and currently set up with a well proportioned refectory table and side board which shows the available space. The kitchen has a bespoke designed and made range of units with extensive wood work top with a large butler sink with wooden draining alongside. A 4 ring electric hob with extractor and light above and inset oven are also in situ. There is a free standing dresser sat upon the quarry tiled floor that the Vendor will be including in the sale. There is appliance space for a larder style fridge freeze and washing machine. Rounding off the accommodation on the ground floor is a bedroom with en suite bathroom.

A straight run of stairs lead from the kitchen to a galleried landing which has a magnificent wide plank flooring. (At the top of the stairs there is reduced head height due to the slope of the roof). On this floor are two double bedrooms (one with low door height), a single bedroom with built in cupboards and a good sized shower room with corner shower, pedestal wash hand basin, WC and linen cupboard with hot water tank.


Attached on one end of the cottage and subject to planning more accommodation could be created is a store room accessed from both the front and back which provides very useful storage for surfboards, long boards, canoes etc.

This is simply laid out being on three levels at the back enjoying predominantly an east and southern aspect a small area of lawn, stocked beds with Camelia, rambling rose, clematis, rosemary, spring bulbs and such. On the top level is a summer house, garden store and gravel seating area ideal for whiling away the moments!
