Great potential to extend or develop! This village edge semi-detached cottage enjoys wonderful views and includes 3 double bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms and numerous outbuildings including a car workshop and a former stable.

Situated on the North Eastern edge of this wonderful village, Livingshayes Cottages enjoys some fantastic far reaching rural views towards Exeter, yet is within walking distance of Silverton’s amenities (see village description) and only 20 minutes drive from central Exeter.

The three double bedroom accommodation has been very well looked after by the current owners and is also spacious and flows nicely inside.

The main garden for the property is lawned and found to the front (measuring approx. 16m x 15m (53ft x 50ft).  It is west facing to enjoy the sun from midday right into the evening and surrounded by mature fir trees giving it much privacy. There is a huge amount of parking available too, suitable for 10+ cars a motorhome, boat and caravan if desired!

OUTBUILDINGS – See Floorplan

There are 3 outbuildings which each offer a unique opportunity and a great deal of potential, subject to the necessary permissions being obtained.

Outbuilding 1 – Linked to the main house via a lean-to, this could be incorporated into the main accommodation or to create an annexe (STP).

Outbuilding 2 – Car Workshop - The current owner was formally a mechanic and ran his business from here, we understand that this type of business use is no longer available, however it still offers a wonderful opportunity for someone looking for the ultimate “mans cave”. Other forms of business use may be available.

Outbuilding 3 – The Former Stable offers potential for a holiday cottage conversion (STP)

DIRECTIONS:  From the roundabout in centre of Silverton proceed into School Road (signed Killerton), at the next roundabout, turn left into Coach Road (as signed Community Hall). Take the 2nd right hand turning into Livingshayes Road. Follow this lane for about 0.4 of a mile, the driveway for Livingshayes House and Livingshayes Cottage will be found near the end of the lane on your right.

Silverton is a large village and parish, one of the oldest in Devon – dating back to the first years of the Saxon occupation. Its location is ideal for commuting to Exeter (8 miles south) and for speedy access to the M5 at Cullompton 5 miles away. The church, in honour of ‘St Mary’ is a striking building, with a full set of bells, often heard ringing out. The centrepiece of Silverton is a regal, and gnarled oak tree more than 1000 years old. There are two inns, ‘The Lamb’ and ‘the Silverton Inn’ – both do hearty pub lunches, and pull popular pints of ale, cider and beer. The shop is a ‘Spar’ mini-mart/ post office, with an adjoining old-fashioned butcher’s shop – delivering select cuts of meat and homemade pastries. There is also a hairdresser, for those wanting to spruce up their locks. Annually, Silverton hosts a vibrant street market, in deep summer, with a spectacular spread of local produce, arts and crafts and games for the kids – no childhood is complete without tiger face paint! The C of E primary school is a good one too, with the Ofsted report to prove it. 5 minutes drive down the road (past Ellerhayes) is Killerton house and gardens, an 18th Century manor, reminiscent of something from a Brontë novel. Owned by the National Trust - it has been immaculately kept, and inside features elegant displays of period costumes. Furthermore, the surrounding estate, of secret pathways and mottled woodland glades is a magical place to take a stroll.
