A very appealing and well presented period cottage with much charm and character. Living room, dining room, kitchen, utility, bathroom and 4 bedrooms. Attractive gardens, useful courtyard of buildings with potential (stp) and off road parking. EPC Exempt.

Situation - Culverhill House is set toward the edge of the sought after small town of Chulmleigh. The small town is set on the eastern side of the highly attractive Taw valley amongst some of Devon's most unspoilt countryside. The town offers excellent day to day facilities including post office, shops, public houses, banking, church and chapel, excellent senior and junior schooling and popular 18 hole short hole golf course.
The local market town of South Molton is about 8 miles via country lanes via Kings Nympton or 12 miles via the A377 and B3226 and offers a further range of amenities.
About 20 miles to the east is Tiverton and Junction 27 on the M5 is a further seven miles where there is also a station on the Paddington line at Tiverton Parkway. To the south, the Cathedral City of Exeter, about 24 miles, also offers direct access onto the M5 motorway as well as an airport. There is a sprinter branch line service running along the Tarka Line from Exeter to Barnstaple through Eggesford or Kings Nympton station within a short distance of the property.
To the north the North Devon regional centre of Barnstaple is approximately 18 miles and offers an excellent range of shopping and recreational facilities and from there to the west, a further seven miles, is the renowned North Devon coastline with extensive sandy beaches. Both Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks are within easy reach by car.

Description - Culverhill House is a well presented Grade II listed property with much character and appeal. Attractive features include beamed ceilings, window seats and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a sheltered and south facing cottage garden.
There is a courtyard of useful buildings to the side which formally had the benefit of planning consent for the creation of a further dwelling (application number 40092 dated 11th July 2005 at North Devon District Council) but this has now lapsed. Currently the outbuildings are used for storage, car ports and workshops and form two sides of a courtyard with parking for a number of cars.

The KITCHEN has a high vaulted ceiling, tiled floor and fitted base unit with Belfast sink and timber worktop/drainer to the side. Electric cooker point. Off the kitchen is a UTILITY AREA with Belfast sink, and a further room with plumbing for washing machine and shelving.

The south facing GARDEN enjoys an excellent degree of privacy with a lawned area bordered by many mature shrubs and plants.
