Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The village of Woodbury remains one of East Devon's most highly sought after locations, offering excellent amenities including two public houses, post office, general store and chinese/fish and chip shop. There is an excellent local primary school, church, doctors surgery and a frequent bus service, all combining to create a thriving community. The village is close to all major routes including the M5 motorway.

Tucked nicely away off the road and with a rear garden facing approximately south and enjoying a lovely sunny aspect, this delightful character home has to be viewed to be fully appreciated. The property is at the end of a small terrace and easily the largest in the row. The sitting room boasts a multi-fuel burner, the kitchen/breakfast room has hardwood worktops, feature lighting and two good size windows. There is a most useful second reception room. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a stylish period style modern bathroom. Outside to the front and rear, are pretty and well planted cottage gardens (the latter enjoying a sunny aspect).

From Topsham follow the B3179 from Clyst St George, follow the road to Woodbury. As you enter the village turn left before the post office through the Arch into the main square. Continue up through the village passing the Malsters Pub on the right hand side. After approximately 500 metres there is the village green on the left and virtually opposite is a small thatched cottage. Walk down the little lane to the front of this cottage and the row of Thorns Cottages is in front of you. Take the path along the front of the cottages and Number 5 is at the far end.
