Situation - For sale by Auction on Tuesday 15th November 2016 (unless sold prior).
East Galliford is very well positioned in the village of Winsford, one of the three villages comprising what is known locally as The Golden Triangle of Exmoor. It 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 bank, post office, chemist, doctors, dental and veterinary surgeries and a well used 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, and in particular Winsford Hill, which is only a short walk away. Wimbleball Lake is 7 miles away and offers walking, sailing and fishing 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 - East Galliford is a delightful semi-detached cottage of traditional construction with rendered elevations under a slate roof. 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. There is a good sized garden to the front and the side of the property.

Accomodation - As illustrated on the floorplan, the front door leads into a hallway with a tiled floor and stairs to the first floor. The cosy sitting room has a fireplace with period tiled surround and enjoys views over the front garden to the countryside beyond. The living/dining room is a lovely spacious room containing a fireplace with Rayburn inset (currently not in use), parquet flooring, space for a 6 seat table and views over the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units and is light with two windows and a large Velux. The useful rear hall has a door to the cloakroom and a door leading out to the side path.
Upstairs there are two good sized double bedrooms both with period fireplaces and the third bedroom is suitable as a twin room. Lovely views are enjoyed to the front and side of the property. The bathroom is fitted with a bath with electric shower over, WC, wash basin and airing cupboard. The property benefits from double glazing and electric storage heaters.

Outside - The cottage is approached from the quiet village lane via a pathway which leads to the front door. 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 plants. There is a south west facing timber summerhouse from which to enjoy the sun. A shared pedestrian access leads to the rear of the cottage from the lane.
