*** VIRTUAL VIEWING TOUR *** Fancy a chocolate box Devon thatched cottage? An EXTREMELY SPACIOUS 4 double bedroom detached period cottage set in a beautiful rural location, yet only 4 miles from Crediton and 9 miles to the cathedral city of Exeter. Living room with woodburner, 2nd sitting room, dining room, garden room, 2 detached double garages, level large gardens – a lovely family home!

Chilton Fold is an extremely spacious 4 double-bedroomed period thatched cottage, situated in a lovely rural location, yet just 4 miles from the popular market town of Crediton and 9 miles from the cathedral city of Exeter.

Formerly a 16th century passage house and well house with a rich architectural history, Chilton Fold today benefits from state-of-the-art fibre optic broadband access. The property retains much character, including exposed ceiling beams, a stone inglenook fireplace, deep window sills and impressive oak plank and muntin wood panelling.

It offers light, well-proportioned rooms throughout, with the ground floor offering very flexible living accommodation including 4 reception rooms: a sizeable living room with woodburner, a 2nd sitting room, dining room and a lovely garden room as well as a downstairs bedroom. There is a kitchen/breakfast room, useful cloakroom and shower room also on the ground floor.

The first floor contains a master bedroom with en-suite shower and basin, two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and spacious landing area.

Outside, the front garden benefits from a lovely private lawned area, well stocked flower beds and a collection of trees. There is a second lawned garden at the rear of the property with a beech hedge border, apple trees and beautiful views over adjoining countryside. There is a large tool shed/store and two detached double garages, one of which is currently used as a games room, as well as ample driveway parking.

CREDITON : An ancient market town, with a contemporary feel – only a short, 20-minute drive NW from the city of Exeter. Set in the Vale of the River Creedy, amongst gentle, rolling hills and verdant pastures. Sincerely picture postcard. Once the capital of Devon, Crediton is famed for its inspiring sandstone church and for being the birthplace of Saint Boniface in 680 AD. Its high street is a vibrant place, abuzz with trade –artisan coffee shops, roaring pubs, a farmers’ market and bakeries, jam-packed with mouthwatering delights. For those commuting it has hassle free transport links into Exeter and for schooling a prestigious community college (Queen Elizabeth’s) – with an Ofsted “outstanding” sixth form. In addition, it boasts a brilliant gym & leisure centre for New Year’s resolutions, two supermarkets for the weekly shop and a trading estate for any practical needs. All neatly held in a single valley.

DIRECTIONS : From Crediton High Street, head down the road and onto the A3072 towards Tiverton. Stay on this road for approximately 2.5 miles. At the bottom of the hill you will see Westwood Farm. Just before the farm entrances, turn left, there is a small signpost to Chilton. Follow this road for approximately 1 mile and Chilton Fold is the second thatched cottage on the right. The driveway and entrance is just behind the property, accessed via a five bar gate.
