Full description

Tenure: Freehold


This charming character cottage, believed to date from the early Eighteenth Century, is idylically situated in the hamlet of Whitnage; just one mile along quiet country lanes from the popular village of Sampford Peverell and under a mile from the smaller village of Uplowman.

The grounds extend to just under three quarters of an acre with pretty gardens, plenty of parking and a paddock of just under half an acre. From the garden and paddock there are some far reaching views with the 'Sidmouth Gap' in sight towards the south coast.

The cottage has been extended on the ground floor to provide spacious living accommodation, the sitting room is full of character with a large inglenook fireplace with an inset wood stove and a view to the front; beyond the sitting room is a spacious study which would equally suit as a children's playroom or similar. The kitchen is as expected in a property of this type - a good country kitchen with a tiled floor, plenty of space for the family dining table, an electric Aga, a double sink unit, integrated dishwasher and plenty of working surfaces and storage. In addition is a large utility room space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, additional store cupboards, room for coats, boots and dogs! The rear hall functions as another utility space, just off of which is a cloakroom. The rear hall opens to the rear garden.

On the first floor is a spacious master bedroom with built in wardrobes, having a dual aspect both being very private. There is a further double and a single bedroom, both with built in storage. The bathroom is an excellent size and includes a separate shower cubicle.

The cottage fronts on to a very quiet lane in this small hamlet but the vendors rarely use the front door as the parking is at the rear. Large solid gates open to the parking area which is suitable for several vehicles beyond which is a timber garage. A further drive drops gently away to a large timber workshop which has double doors for vehicular access. A footpath leads through the pretty garden to the back door of the cottage. Within the garden is a pretty fish pond and a summer house faces south, towards the Sidmouth gap in the distance.

The paddock which amounts to approx. 0.4 acres is good, solid well drained ground, fully enclosed and again enjoys a southerly view to the hills in the far distance. To the corner of the paddock is a timber store, currently used for chickens and ducks.

This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a lifestyle property that is in a beautiful semi- rural position yet so easy to access. There are lovely country walks right on the doorstep and superb access all over Devon with road and rail links nearby.

Junction 27 of the M5 lies only two miles away with its adjoining Parkway station from where one can reach Paddington in about two and a half hours. There are village amenities in Sampford Peverell and Holcombe Rogus and the busy market town of Tiverton lies 5 miles away where can be found a good shopping centre, a hospital, East Devon College and Blundells Independent school for boys and girls, together with its own preparatory school. The property also lies within the catchment of Uffculme comprehensive school, which has such a good reputation that many parents specifically move to this area. There is an excellent primary school in Uplowman and the the primary schools at Sampford Peverell and Holcombe Rogus are also reputed to be very good.


Please see the floor plan for the dimensions. The internal photos have been taken with a wide angle lens to show more of the rooms.
