SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An historic detached character cottage offering off road parking and sizeable grounds with wonderful views from the garden over the village and valley.

A two bedroom detached cottage which has undergone extensive refurbishment and landscaping creating a desirable character home in a village setting. The cottage we understand was originally built in the 1600's with connections to Buckland Abbey and was once two dwellings. A particular feature is the off road parking for two small cars and large rear gardens which are approximately a 1/3 of an acre. The gardens have been cleverly landscaped creating level lawns, seating terraces with views and large open grassed areas with established trees and colourful shrubs. There are also useful outbuildings including a hobby shed with mains power, green house and a 1950's caravan located at the very end of the garden. The cottage is warmed by a Heritage Duette range cooker/boiler which is oil fired, wood burning stove, radiators and contemporary aluminium double glazed windows. The character of this cottage is real joy with large exposed beams, deep original stone walls and exposed fireplace with bread oven. The charming accommodation comprises of entrance lobby, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, larder/utility and to the 1st floor is a landing with a door to the garden, bathroom and two double bedrooms with elevated views. The cottage is ideal for a buyer who wants to be part of village life and a few yards from the local country pub!
