Full description

A charming 4 bedroom spacious semi-detached cottage set in the popular Exmoor village of Winsford with garden, garage, parking and far reaching rural views. Suitable for holiday or full time occupation. EPC band E.

Situation - Eastercote is very well positioned in Winsford, one of the three villages comprising what is known locally as The Golden Triangle of Exmoor. Winsford is an attractive village in the Exe Valley where the River Exe and the Winn Brook meet and there are eight bridges and a ford. It is only a short walk to the parish church, village hall, garage (not fuel) and the famous Royal Oak Inn. There are also tennis courts and a cricket pitch in the village.
Dulverton, 7 miles away, is a delightful small town nestling in the Barle Valley within the Exmoor National Park and is well known as The Gateway to Exmoor. It provides good day-to-day shopping together with two churches, a post office, chemist, doctors, dental and veterinary surgeries and a well supported town hall. There are also good restaurants and recreational facilities including squash courts, all weather tennis courts and football and cricket pitches.
Tiverton, 20 miles away, is an old market town and has several supermarkets, a wide range of shops, modern district hospital, sports centre/swimming pool complex and 18-hole golf course as well as schools for all ages including Blundells public school. There is easy access along the A361 North Devon Link Road to the M5 (Junction 27) and Tiverton Parkway Station providing mainline connections to London Paddington. Exeter airport is approximately 39 miles to the south.
The property is ideally located to take advantage of the wonderful walking and riding opportunities on Exmoor, in particular Winsford Hill, which is only a short distance away. Wimbleball Lake is 7 miles away and offers sailing, fishing and walking as well as many other recreational pursuits. The coast to the north is within easy reach and provides a wealth of water sports such as surfing and windsailing.

Description - Eastercote is a delightful semi-detached cottage of traditional construction with rendered elevations under a slate roof. There is a good sized garden, parking and a garage. Sitting in an elevated position with views over the village to the countryside beyond, this lovely cottage would be equally well-suited to full or part time occupation and would benefit from simple modernisation.

Accommodation - As illustrated on the floorplan, the front door leads into an enclosed porch which leads into the hallway with stairs to the first floor. The light and airy sitting room has a central fireplace with brick surround and has glazed double doors to the front garden and views to the countryside beyond. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has a feature fireplace with Rayburn inset, fitted with wall and base units, free standing appliances and space for a 6 seat table. The useful rear utility/boot room has a cloakroom, a shower cubicle and a door to the downstairs double bedroom. From the utility room, doors lead to the side entrance path and to a small sheltered courtyard at the side.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a third bedroom which is only a small single room. Lovely views are enjoyed to the front and side of the property. The bathroom is fitted with a bath, wash basin and airing cupboard, with a separate WC. The property benefits from oil fired central heating.

Outside - The garden is to the front and side of the cottage and is level, of a good size and mainly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs and trees. There is a patio area adjoining the front of the cottage and a timber summerhouse in the garden with raised patio from which to enjoy the sun and views. Two separate vehicular gated entrances off the quiet village lane lead to two separate parking areas and the single garage. To the rear of the property is a pedestrian gated access from the lane.
