A charming detached 4 bedroom, 3 reception room cottage including a self contained annexe together with a large garden/building plot on high ground enjoying pleasant views on the fringe of this favoured village & close to Exmoor. EPC Band E.


Situation And Amenities - On high ground, commanding fine views to open countryside in the distance. Bratton Fleming offers local shop, village school, sports centre and garage. The village is on the fringe of Exmoor National Park, which offers many miles of beautiful walks and excellent riding. Barnstaple, the regional centre for North Devon is easily accessible and offers a diverse shopping experience, together with a broad range of amenities, further schooling, entertainments and a railway station providing regular services to Exeter, with connecting services beyond. The market town of South Molton is also within easy reach, to the east. Tiverton Parkway Station and Junction 27 of the M5 are both within about 40 minutes by car. The dramatic North Devon Coastline with its expansive sandy beaches at Saunton (also offering a championship golf course), Croyde and Woolacombe are also easily accessible, all between 15 and 20 miles away.

Description - Sentry Cottage comprises a detached, two storey, character cottage which presents elevations of stone and colourwash render, beneath a slate roof with double glazed windows virtually throughout. The original property is of period origin but an in-keeping extension was added around 2008. Internally the accommodation is deceptively generous and versatile incorporating a potential self-contained annexe which also interconnects at both ground floor and first floor level with the main house. This is considered ideal for dual occupation by parts of the same family, or for some sort of home and income use, such as renting out on assured shorthold tenancy basis or holiday let.
To the right of the cottage is a garden building plot. This has consent for a detached, two storey, new dwelling. Planning consent was granted on 12/11/15 by North Devon Council under reference 57459. All associated documents & plans can be viewed on the NDC Planning Tracker Website. Access to both properties will initially be shared but then becomes private, leading to each dwelling accordingly. Part of the existing front garden of the cottage will need to be redeveloped as drive to the existing garage. The layout of accommodation with approximate dimensions comprises:

Ground Floor -
