Full description


This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a very well presented detached Grade II listed thatched Cottage which stands within its own good size gardens. The property is in a tranquil tucked away position within the sought after village of Knowle which offers virtually complete seclusion and privacy and is offered in very good condition throughout with extremely comfortable accommodation. We understand that the back slope of the roof and ridge were replaced in 2012 whilst there was an electrical report completed in 2013. The property offers many character features which include exposed beams, stonework and latched doors. The accommodation comprises entrance hall with door to lovely double aspect sitting room with inglenook fireplace, ceiling and vertical beams. There is a separate dining room with access to a well fitted galley style kitchen which has further access to a utility room. To the first floor there is a master bedroom with built in wardrobes and en suite shower room, whilst there is a good sized second bedroom and family bathroom. There is the benefit of gas fired radiator central heating with a boiler changed in 2013 to the main house. To the side of the house there is a very useful studio which would make for an excellent office.


The gardens are delightful and surround the property and offer a very good degree of seclusion. These are arranged on different levels with a sweeping drive leading to parking, double garage and open lawned area. There are steps leading down to a further garden area and kitchen garden. We understand that planning permission was granted in the late 70's but has since lapsed. There is, therefore, good potential (subject to planning permission) to reinstate this if required.


Knowle is situated only a few minutes drive from the larger village of Braunton. There is a good pub/restaurant, garage and convenience store/post office within the village and Braunton offers an excellent range of amenities including local shops, library, medical centre, primary and secondary schooling and is connected by a regular bus service. A short distance from Braunton are the sandy beaches at Croyde and Saunton, where there is also the renowned Saunton Sands Golf Club with its two 18 hole courses. Barnstaple, the regional centre of North Devon is approximately 5 miles to the south east of Braunton and a wider range of amenities can be gained here. There is also access to the North Devon link road which leads to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway.


From Barnstaple and at the centre of Braunton carry on over the traffice lights towards Ilfracombe.  Knowle is the 1st village & when you pass the garage then take the third right into Church Hill Lane. This is just before where the main road bends to the right. Continue up this hill passing Briary House on your left where there is a large stone on the left beyond which is the access to Ridge Cottage with the nameplate clearly displayed.
