Full description

Occupying a quiet secluded spot with no near neighbours, this is a traditional Grade II listed Devon cob thatched cottage on the east facing slopes above the village of Sidbury. Lavenders offers surprisingly spacious oil centrally-heated accommodation with immense character. Most rooms have low ceilings and exposed timbers and there are impressive views over the grounds or across the valley. There's a large farmhouse-style kitchen-breakfast room and two cosy reception rooms on the ground floor, one with a large inglenook and bread oven, the other with a woodburning stove. To the rear is a useful utility room and a ground floor cloakroom.  Two staircases lead up to the three double bedrooms.  The master bedroom has a handy en-suite and there's a second bathroom too.  This is a charming period property and whilst it's been carefully maintained by the present owner, there's the opportunity for the new owners to stamp their own identity on it.  We understand the thatched roof was repaired and refurbished two years ago.

The cottage is well-placed on it's plot, which we estimate is c.1 acre.   Approached by a five bar gate and a tarmac driveway, the cottage has a traditional floral front garden with numerous shrubs, perennials, climbing roses and a Wistaria.  Much of the grounds are left as wild meadow that doesn't require much looking after.   There's a recently planted orchard with productive fruit trees.  A winding pathway leads up through a small wood at the top of the garden and a fence surrounds a pretty natural pond, bordered by a mature Weeping Willow.   There's ample opportunity to create a kitchen garden and the available space would even support livestock or poultry.  Perhaps one of the most unique features of this fine property is the190m2 detached single storey studio building.  It provides bright and airy workspace and it would be wonderful for someone wishing to work from home.  It even has annexe or holiday letting potential.  Lavenders offers very special rural living space indeed, call us now to book your viewing!   The good life beckons....
