Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Lower Coombe Cottage is a lovingly maintained Grade II Listed detached cottage, believed to date from the 1700’s with quintessential aesthetics, having rendered elevations beneath a Devon thatch. The cottage is built in the “cross passage” style and set in a lovely wooded valley, giving a sense of country life and yet being on the fringes of the town. The property has been extended and lovingly restored and melds period charm with comfortable modern living to include underfloor heating throughout much of the ground floor. The detailing throughout is exceptional with many charming additions and a wonderful sense of craftsmanship. The welcoming entrance hall has maple flooring and a wonderful caved oak staircase, along with a feature oak plank and muntin screen. Many of the internal doors are timber and latch; there are character beams and superb mullioned oak-framed double glazed windows. The sitting room is a wonderfully large room rich in character, with oak flooring, an inglenook fireplace with log burner and the separate dining room has similar appeal. The hallway opens to the excellent atrium area, this
being a part glazed extension at the rear, providing a good focal point for the house with bi-fold doors opening to the rear terrace and garden. To the left the atrium area opens to the lovely bespoke kitchen, and to the right to a useful utility/hobbies room, which could easily serve as a ground floor bedroom suite, as it in turn opens to an attractive modern shower room. To the first floor the landing has a vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses and currently serves as a large study area. The master bedroom is rich in charm and has views over the gardens as well as opening to a modern en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has similar appeal and has an en-suite area with a three-piece suite to include a recessed shower. The cottage-style gardens are a true delight at both the front and rear, with the plot extending to around 0.21 of an acre. The cottage and front and rear gardens are set beside a charming stream approx. 2 metres below the house and are stocked with a profusion of variety and colour with terraces, many specimen shrubs and small trees. There is parking for 2 cars with potting shed, greenhouse and small orchard. A great deal of privacy and seclusion is enjoyed within both the cottage and grounds.


Lower Coombe Cottage has a pleasant leafy lane approach, being set within the Coombe Valley area of Teignmouth, about a mile from the town centre and promenade. Local amenities include schools, the Coombe Valley Nature Reserve, shops and sports clubs. A nearby country lane meanders through a rural valley to the nearby village of Bishopsteignton with its vineyard and village amenities. Teignmouth itself is set on the lovely South Devon coastline astride the SW Coastal Path. The town is approximately 13 miles from the Cathedral city and County town of Exeter. There is a fine promenade with sandy beaches backed by a classic crescent of imposing Georgian buildings. There are boating opportunities in the estuary and the "back beach" has a selection of pubs and restaurants in a superb marine setting. The town has a wide variety of independent shops and cafes, along with a Waitrose supermarket and Wetherspoons hostelry. There is a further superstore on the west side of town. Teignmouth has several schools. Teignmouth Community School is an "all-through" from 2-19 and is well regarded. There are two other Primary schools and a private school, Trinity, which offers both primary and secondary education. There is an 18-hole golf course set on the hills outside the town, the Teign Corinthian Yacht Club on the estuary and "Alive"; a membership fitness centre. There is a lively Arts quarter of exhibitions and artists studios along with "Pavilions"; a purpose-built theatre/Conference Centre. The main-line railway station offers a direct link between London Paddington and Penzance. There is also fast access to the A380, the A38 and the M5, making for an easy commute to Exeter and beyond.


From Teignmouth, exit the town in the direction of Newton Abbot on Bitton Park Road. Turn right into Coombe Vale Road, continue for some distance until a No-Entry sign forces you to take a left. Continue down the hill and to the T-junction. Turn right past the Primary School on the left, before turning right by the Football Club into Headway Cross. Proceed down the hill, turning left into Coombe Lane. Lower Coombe Cottage is about 200 yards on the right hand side.
