Tenure: Freehold

An opportunity to purchase a beautiful cottage, nestled in the heart of the Devon countryside. A four-bedroom family home, with an annexe, a garage and large garden.

Located in the peaceful hamlet of West Ogwell, it is surrounded by rolling countryside, yet only a ten-minute journey to the market town of Newton Abbot and major transport links. Originally a traditional cottage with three bedrooms, semi-detached, but joined at the rear, it has the appearance of being detached, the adjacent property unseen, it has been extended to more than double the ground floor area, and to create a self-contained annexe.

A gated entrance and a gravel path leads through the well-maintained garden, to the entrance. Inside, the property feels warm and welcoming and is beautifully presented throughout. The snug, as the name implies, feels cosy and has wonderful, stripped and varnished floorboards. There is an abundance of light from dual-aspect windows and a decorative fireplace, fitted with a wood-burning stove, makes a lovely feature and focal point for the room. This room would also make a grand dining room with space for twelve around a dining table, perfect for family celebrations. The kitchen/breakfast room is a good size, with a country-kitchen style, bespoke fitted kitchen. There are solid beech worktops to four sides with a wide range of high and low-level cupboards, a built-in fan oven with a halogen hob above, and a separate two-burner gas hob in a corner. There is space and plumbing beneath the draining board for a dishwasher, and floor space in an adjacent larder cupboard for an upright fridge/freezer. A table fits nicely by the window, making a great informal dining space.

A family room has a slate-tiled floor, and is filled with light from sliding patio doors, with innovative, integral Venetian blinds, and a skylight above the dining area. A fireplace is fitted with a large wood-burning stove, which also provides the hot water for the central heating, and the domestic hot water along with solar panel-powered immersion heaters; an eco-friendly system that reduces the running costs of the property. The dining area has plenty of space for a table and seating for six, ideal for most occasions.

A door leads into the entrance lobby for the annexe, with a door to the garden, to a cloakroom/utility, with a worktop, space beneath for a washing machine, and a WC. Another door leads to the large double bedroom, with added light from a Velux window, and there is a separate ensuite shower room, with a corner shower, WC and a basin. To complete the self-contained annexe, the WC/Utility could be opened up to create a kitchenette, with a minimum amount of work; perfect for an elderly family member or a rental income perhaps.

Upstairs, on the first floor, there are two bedrooms, a spacious double and a single, the double, filled with light from dual-aspect windows providing unspoilt views over rolling countryside, to Denbury Down, and there is a lilac bathroom, with a bath, shower and screen above, a WC and a basin.

A second staircase leads up to the master bedroom, a light and airy double, with a vaulted ceiling, and plenty of light from four Velux windows that provide superb views of the surrounding countryside.

Outside, the garden is large, level and well-maintained. A crazy-paved patio, makes a lovely venue for outside dining or a family barbecue, overlooking the extensive lawn bordered by beds of mature plants and shrubs, and a tree with a swing. There are several raised beds, perfect for a vegetable patch, a greenhouse, two log stores, a garage, with lights and power that has been divided to create a workshop. A gated gravel driveway provides parking for two cars, and plenty of additional parking is available.

A viewing is essential to appreciate all that is on offer.
