Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached cottage of great character set in superb gardens and grounds extending to just over 4 acres.

The Property.
Newlands is a particularly attractive detached Grade II Listed cottage which has origins dating back as far as the 17th century with a later Victorian extension, and is of traditional construction with principally stone and limewashed elevations under a thatched and turnerised slated roof. Newlands itself retains a wealth of character features, all of which create a delightful period ambience and all of the rooms take advantage of the lovely views over the grounds to the countryside beyond.

Worthy of particular mention is the large sitting/dining room which has a fabulous inglenook fireplace with open fire and existing bread oven, as well as flagstone floors, window seats and a heavily beamed ceiling. The principal bedroom is also worthy of note and this is a spacious room with exposed cruck beams and a feature fireplace. The accommodation is found in good order, and has been the subject of a continued programme of restoration and improvement.

Gardens and Grounds.
The property is approached from the lane to a tarmacadam driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and gives access to a run of buildings which incorporates two garages and a potting shed. The gardens surround the property and are in the main, laid to lawn, and interspersed with profusely stocked flower and shrub beds, as well as many mature trees which include a superb American Red Oak. There are also two areas of vegetable garden and a greenhouse. To the north of the property is a beautiful wild area of meadow and orchard where there are a many fruit trees as well as Beech, Oak, Ash and Sycamore.

To the east of this is an area of paddock where there is a pony shed, whilst to the south of the gardens lies a second field which extends to about two acres. In total, the gardens and grounds extend to just over four acres.

Situation.
Newlands sits in a delightful country location on the very fringes of the picturesque community village of Dalwood, which in turn is located in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amongst some of East Devon most attractive rolling countryside. The village offers a range of amenities including the popular Tuckers Arms public house, ancient Church of St Peter's, village hall and community run shop and post office. Dalwood lies between the market towns of Honiton (about 9 miles) and Axminster (about 4 miles). Both towns offer a wide range of amenities such as schools, banks, supermarkets and sporting facilities, as well as many independent shops and galleries. They both also have main line rail links to London (Waterloo).

The beautiful World Heritage Jurassic Coastline at Lyme Bay is a short drive away, with the town of Lyme Regis being about 9 miles distant. Lyme Regis has a famous harbour including The Cobb and a very good range of independent shops and eateries which include The Oyster and Fish House, owned by the renowned chef Mark Hix.

The renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top mixed state schools, is situated about 7 miles south of the property. The Cathedral City of Exeter is about 25 miles to the west with excellent shopping facilities, main line rail link to London (Paddington), M5 access and international airport.
