Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Demelza Cottage is a charming 2 bedroom property located in a rural location, close to Merrifield Farm, near the village of Bridgerule on the Devon/Cornwall borders between the thriving towns of Launceston, Bude and Holsworthy.

The quirky and highly individual cottage is full of character with unusual features including a triangular window in the kitchen and a lounge/dining room which wraps around a central staircase. The character and charm can be enjoyed throughout the accommodation with slate floors, exposed beams, timbers and doors, a fantastic fireplace housing the wood burner, and little nooks and crannies all add to the feel of the property. There is an oil fired rayburn in the kitchen which is used for domestic cooking, to heat the hot water and to fire the radiators if need be. The present owners very rarely use the radiators as the rayburn and wood burner provide as much warmth as is needed. The majority of windows are Upvc double glazed and the internal accommodation is well presented with a cottage style kitchen boasting a built in hob and a modern bathroom.

The generous gardens surround the cottage and they are a real treat, being well stocked with shrubs and perennials providing colour throughout the season. The garden offers almost total seclusion with mature trees and hedges providing privacy. The pretty gardens are a real joy, with a paved patio area screened by a trellis with a climbing large clematis offering a more sheltered sitting area ideal for al-fresco dining. The tandem style double garage is very useful for storage and parking with the drive offering further off road parking and turning. There are just a handful of properties located at Merrifield with Demelza Cottage enjoying the most tucked away spot. The location gives good access onto the B3254, south to Launceston and the Main A30 trunk road to Exeter, the M5 and beyond and north to Bude, the coastal walks and the nearest supermarkets and schools. The village itself has a shop and a County primary school.
