The Property
Tom Putt Cottage is a handsome, attached (via a garden wall) Grade II Listed property which takes its name from the 'Tom Putt' variety of apple tree planted in its garden. The property itself sits in a rural location and takes full advantage of the stunning countryside views. Tom Putt Cottage has been the subject of an extensive programme of restoration and extension by the current owners, which has included the addition of the slate roofed extension to the south which has created a good sized kitchen/dining room to the ground floor and beautiful vaulted principal bedroom suite to the first floor. The property has also recently been re thatched and the interior decorated with great care and attention given to the overall finish and fittings. Worthy of particular mention is the oak flooring to the sitting room, tiled floor to the kitchen/dining room complete with Oil fired Rayburn and Halogen hob and slate flooring to the family bathroom. All of this has added to the creation of the handsome and beautifully presented home we find today.

Tom Putt Cottage retains a wealth of character features which include the inglenook fireplace and window seats to the sitting room and exposed ceiling timbers to some of the rooms. Beautiful far-reaching views are gained from its principal rooms over the gardens to the countryside beyond.

Tom Putt Cottage offers a wonderful opportunity to acquire a fairly low maintenance character property situated in some of East Devon's most picturesque countryside.

Situation
Tom Putt Cottage is situated in a delightful, rural location in the pretty hamlet of Westhay, which in turn sits on the fringes of the desirable and attractive village of Hawkchurch. Hawkchurch is a popular village and has a Public House, Hotel and Primary School and is located in some of East Devon's most attractive countryside.

The property is situated approximately 5 miles from the market town of Axminster with its range of shops, schools, leisure centre, swimming pool and main line rail link to London (Waterloo). The World Heritage Coast at Lyme Regis lies approximately 7 miles away and the small town of Chard is some 6 miles to the north.

The Cathedral City and County Town of Exeter is approximately 33 miles to the south west and has an excellent shopping centre, theatres, cinemas, main line rail link to London (Paddington), international airport and M5 access. Taunton, the County Town of Somerset, with its full range of shops and main line rail link to London (Paddington) lies approximately 18 miles to the north. Delightful countryside walks emanate virtually from one's doorstep.

Outside
Tom Putt Cottage is approached off the lane via a gravelled driveway which leads to a turning area providing parking for several vehicles. The gardens lie to the front of the property and consist mainly of a good sized area of lawn with borders containing a variety of plants and shrubs. The property is surrounded by mature hedging to the front which provides a high degree of privacy. There is also a useful stone and brick open fronted outbuilding which has in the past been used as a car port.
