A charming double fronted period character cottage with single garage and views over the Axe Valley within the popular and picturesque village of Musbury.
Situation - The historic village of Musbury is conveniently situated between the bustling market town of Axminster with its main line rail station and the coast at Axmouth and Seaton. The village hosts a range of facilities including a primary school, pre-school, church, garage with shop, post office, a local pub and village hall. The revered Colyton Grammar school is just c 3 miles distant. Axminster provides a main line station on the London Waterloo line and good road connections to the M5 and the A303.
The Jurassic Coast is readily accessible at nearby Axmouth, Beer and Branscombe as well as the larger towns of Seaton, Lyme Regis and Sidmouth. This region of the coastline was designated England's first World Heritage site and there are a wealth of public footpaths from which to enjoy the stunning coastal scenery.
Description - With origins we believe in the latter part of the 18th century, Wisteria Cottage is a pretty double fronted stone built cottage infused with a wealth of historic character providing a charming village home or holiday/second home retreat.
Beneath a central entrance canopy set into the wisteria clad front elevation, a stable entrance door with glazed diamond shaped window opens into the flagstone floored Sitting Room, a cosy and welcoming space with impressive inglenook fireplace housing a gas fired grate with traditional canopy over. To one side of the chimney breast is an arched shelved alcove with a neighbouring window seat beneath newly installed PVCu double glazing. Open plan to the Sitting Room is the Dining Room, also with PVCu double glazed window to the front and with stairs rising to the first floor featuring an original batten plank door to an understairs storage cupboard. A glazed panelled door from the Sitting Room opens into the Kitchen, spanning the rear of the cottage with twin PVCu double glazed windows enjoying far reaching views across the Axe Valley. With character beamed ceiling the kitchen is fitted with a range of cupboard and drawer units with worksurfaces and tiled splash backs and is also home to the wall mounted gas fired boiler serving domestic hot water and central heating systems.
From the first floor landing, there are period batten plank doors to two double bedrooms and a panelled door to the Bathroom and Laundry Room. Bedroom 1 incorporates the character chimney breast above the inglenook downstairs with feature alcove and a batten plank door to a built in wardrobe. Both bedrooms feature PVCu double glazed windows with seats to the front and wall lighting. The Bathroom with its white washed floorboards has a fitted suite with electric shower over the bath, pedestal basin and w.c.
A PVCu double glazed window enjoys panoramic far reaching views to the rear over the Axe Valley whilst a braced door opens to the Laundry Room with space and plumbing for automatic washing machine and built in cupboard housing both hot and cold water tanks.
Outside - The front of the cottage is adorned with a beautifully mature Wisteria from which the property derives its name. A short distance along the village road to the South (approximately 40 metres) is a detached single garage with up and over door fronting onto the road.
