Property Description

Osborne Cottage is a beautifully presented and surprisingly spacious, bright and airy characterful detached cottage situated very conveniently in the heart of the popular working village of West Down. The property offers accommodation arranged over two floors, perfect as a family home and has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and generous sized reception rooms, including a cosy yet spacious 16ft x 13ft lounge as well as an 18ft x 11ft kitchen/family room and a separate conservatory. There are delightful, well-stocked private sunny gardens to the front and rear with scope for off-road parking, as well as further parking options within the very close by free village residents car park.

West Down is a small working village situated approximately 10 minutes’ drive from the North Devon coastline. Village amenities include a village community shop, pub, church and an excellent primary school which continues to maintain its ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted. There is also a community play park and allotments. The unspoilt village is situated within equal distance from the coastal town of Ilfracombe and the larger village of Braunton. Woolacombe Bay with its fabulous 2 1/2 mile long golden sand surfing beach is approximately 4 miles away. The region’s main town, Barnstaple, being just 8 miles away, has a vibrant high street with both big name and independent retailers. Barnstaple train station links to Exeter, allowing direct access into London. Barnstaple also has direct access onto the A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at junction 27 (Tiverton).

The entrance hall has the stairs to the first floor and a door opens into the bright and airy yet cosy and characterful lounge which has a feature fireplace with a wood burner that provides a focal point to the room. There is a beamed ceiling which further adds to the characterful feel. The lounge leads around to a ground floor 4th bedroom which would also be ideal as an office/study. The heart of the home is the delightful 18ft x 11ft kitchen/family which is a great daytime living space, perfect for modern day family life and entertaining. Within the room there is an extensive range of fitted cupboards and storage including a dresser style unit. There is provision for a range style cooker, an extractor canopy and spaces for all the usual white goods. There is also ample space for a family sized dining table and chairs. Leading from the kitchen is a separate conservatory which is a great feature and direct access from there onto the rear gardens.

Moving to the first floor, there are three further generous sized bedrooms with bedroom 1 having its own en suite shower room. There is also a spacious bathroom with a modern white suite.

Outside, at the front of the cottage there is an area of level lawned garden with colourful shrubs and bushes. At the rear, double wooden gates open onto a gravelled area which provides scope and potential for off-road parking. There is a paved and enclosed patio area with plenty of space for outdoor furniture. A pathway leads along the rear of the cottage and onto a handy covered storage area, perfect for wheelie bins and garden equipment. A gate beyond leads into an attractively laid out private, enclosed, colourful and well-stocked area of garden which is paved for ease of maintenance and has delightful flower bed borders around providing a backdrop of colour. There’s a wealth of plants, shrubs, bushes and flowering trees.

Osborne Cottage truly is a delightful family home with excellent facilities and proximity to amenities and it was also provide an excellent holiday home/holiday let as well. We fully advise an early internal inspection to appreciate all that is on offer.
