Property Description

Priest Cottage is a beautiful Grade II listed Devon longhouse with a rich history, believed to date back to the 17th century. The property features remarkable historic carpentry and includes five bedrooms, three reception rooms, stables, and several outbuildings, all set within approximately three acres of land.

Throughout the property, the careful preservation of its original features ensures an ambiance of historical significance typical of its era. The house features an open porch leading into a cross passage with original oak plank and muntin screens. To the left of the hallway is the dining room, which boasts exposed ceiling beams and a dual-aspect design, making it light and bright.

To the right of the hallway, a step leads up to the spacious living room, which features ceiling beams, exposed stonework, and an inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove. From this room, a semi-circular head doorway with chamfered edges and an old plank door leads to a second sitting room/snug and a secondary staircase to the first floor.

Positioned at the rear of the home is the spacious kitchen/breakfast room, well-equipped with matching wall and base units, granite work surfaces, a Belfast sink, and an Everhot oven. From the kitchen, there is access to a rear porch, which includes a separate utility room and a downstairs WC.

On the first floor, there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom is extremely spacious and features fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom, which includes a bath, separate shower, WC, and wash hand basin. Bedrooms two, three, and four are also double rooms, all with fitted storage. Bedroom five is a good-sized single room or would make a convenient home office.

The grounds surrounding Priest Cottage are equally captivating. The gardens are well-established with a mix of shrubs, flowers, and trees. The rear garden includes an attractive wildlife pond and various seating areas, making it a haven for abundant wildlife visible from the moment you arrive.

A five-bar gate leads into three additional areas of land separated by post and rail fencing, consisting of two smaller paddocks and a larger paddock with separate access from the road.

A five-bar gate with a cattle grid welcomes you into the property. To the left, you'll find a stone garage and workshop, with a stable block behind. At the far end of the garden, a gravel drive leads to a further outbuilding which was formerly a Shippon with an attached carport.
