Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully presented semi-detached Grade II Listed cottage with delightful countryside views to the south and west. Sympathetic renovation was carried out early 2014 and the property has been successfully let for holidays since then. On offer is a fully furnished, ready-to-go business with website and repeat custom should a new owner wish to continue with the letting (this element would be by separate negotiation). On the other hand, anyone looking for a charming home and garden should consider this beautiful house. The accommodation comprises two double bedrooms with a beautifully appointed Jack and Jill bathroom and spacious landing on the first floor, whilst the ground floor is slightly larger comprising spacious sitting room with fireplace and multi-fuel stove, dining room with lovely views, kitchen, entrance hall and shower room. Outside, to the front is a parking space and at the side, an enclosed sunny garden, which enjoys lovely countryside views. Many of the windows have shutters and all are double glazed. There is oil fired central heating to stylish radiators throughout.

The cottage is situated in Musbury village, which offers many facilities within a short walk of the property, including a shop and post office, petrol station and car repairs, village pub, Church, primary school and regular bus services. The village offers easy access to nearby towns, the railway station at Axminster, 3 miles away, (with trains to London Waterloo and Exeter) and good road links. For those who enjoy walking, Musbury is well positioned with some very good walks from the door step, in particular the walk up to Musbury Castle, an Iron Age Hill fort from where there are great views over the Axe Valley.
