2 bedroom cottage for sale

Kentismoor Cottages, Kentisbeare, EX15

Sold STC £200,000

Property Description

Full description

A fabulous opportunity to purchase a Grade II listed period country cottage in this most sought after setting on the outskirts of the tiny hamlet of Kentismoor. Having been owned by the same family for many years we understand that the cottage was purchased by the owners parents for the princely sum of 100 and is now reluctantly being sold due to the owners ill health. Updating is required and the accommodation comprises a kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and bathroom on the ground floor with two bedrooms on the second floor. The grounds extend to approximately 0.3 acre, the majority of which has been cultivated as a vast and productive kitchen garden. There is also a useful, if somewhat dilapidated small range of sheds/garaging/workshop. An early inspection is strongly recommended to those seeking an enviably located tranquil country home.

Facing south on the outskirts of the rural hamlet of Kentismoor and about half a mile from Kentisbeare village with its post office stores, thriving primary school, pub, church and village hall. The nearby country town of Cullompton offers a more extensive range of shopping, schooling and transport facilities, whilst the cottage is within catchment for Uffculme Secondary School. The surrounding countryside offers a wealth of rural pursuits with the nearby Blackdown Hills being designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The parish of Kentisbeare offers an impressive network of footpaths and bridalways with the cottage being ideally placed for the country loving dog walker. The comparatively central Mid Devon location places the picturesque National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor together with the north and south Devon coastlines all within a modest car journey.
