Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This delightful cottage is set within extensive mature gardens of 0.46 acres and is believed to date back to the early part of the 18th century.

It is full of charm and character features and offers a deceptive amount of space, not usually associated with a cottage of this period. The property has combined what once were three cottages into one substantial home with a beautiful outlook over the surrounding area. Chale is a quaint coastal village and also in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, ensuring your family home in the country retains its delightful feel.

The current owners have used the rooms in many ways over their 14 years of occupation as, due to its layout, the rooms offer many possibilities.

Should buyers need it there is enormous potential for a one bedroom self contained annex or holiday let, with its own kitchen / diner, lounge, smart modern shower room and first floor double bedroom.

The gardens surround the home and include numerous mature trees, and specimen shrubs including multiple apple trees, two pear trees and a greengage. A stunning patio area has been created to the side of the home, ideal for summer barbecues and al fresco dining, being within short walking distance of the kitchen.

The first floor can be accessed via three separate stairwells. Bedroom 1 was once two rooms that have been opened up into one and, from here, there is access to the main family bathroom, which also leads to the main central landing. Many of the rooms still offer character features such as exposed beams and original-style windows.

The outbuildings include a boiler house, a piggery that is now used as a workshop, an insulated summer house, a greenhouse and a large timber shed currently used as a summer children’s playhouse.

The detached double-length garage is situated at the end of the gravelled drive where there is ample parking even for modern families.

The property is a real gem to discover in this quaint village location and really may be your next dream home in the country.

What the Owner says:


When we moved to the island 14 years ago, this property was the first and only property we viewed. Although it was not the type of property we thought we were looking for at the time, we were captivated by its charm and quirkiness and have never regretted buying our ‘special’ house.

We love the way the house opens up into the garden like an extra room and faces the sun throughout the day. On a sunny day, even in winter, it is warm enough to sit in the porch with the door open and enjoy the fresh air.
