Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A traditional two bedroomed attached cottage, now in need of some updating, set in pretty private gardens, occupying a delightful position within the quiet rural village of Twitchen on the edge of the beautiful Exmoor National Park. EPC=E

The sale of Old School House affords prospective purchasers the rare opportunity to acquire a traditional two bedroomed stone cottage occupying a delightful position in the small rural village of Twitchen. As the name suggests, the property is originally believed to have been the school masters/mistresses house attached to the former primary school, which is now used as a small village hall. The property enjoys lovely countryside views towards Molland Common and, despite now requiring some updating and modernisation, undoubtedly offers the potential to create a character home set in charming gardens.
The well proportioned two bedroomed accommodation benefits from double glazing to the majority of window and door openings and a solid fuel stove for cooking and hot water. Situated on two sides of the property are delightful enclosed private gardens with stone paved areas, a lawn and vegetable patches. A small stream runs along the edge of the garden creating a most attractive feature. The property is accessed via a private double gated entrance, which may afford the potential to be widened to create sufficient space for car parking, subject to obtaining any necessary planning/highways consent.

The property occupies an outstanding position in the small and very pretty rural village of Twitchen, situated in picturesque rolling Devon countryside lying on the southern edge of the Exmoor National Park overlooking the open expanse of the beautiful Molland Common.
Despite its peaceful rural location Old School House is conveniently situated for access to the surrounding districts and main routes of communication. Molland provides a popular public house whilst the larger village of North Molton offers a well-regarded local primary school, general store/post office, two public houses, a sports club, hairdresser's and garage. The bustling North Devon market town of South Molton provides a good range of local services, including shops, banks, recreational facilities, primary and secondary schooling, whilst the larger centre of Barnstaple to the north west affords a more extensive range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities befitting those of an important regional centre.
The Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths and the stunning North Devon coastline, whilst to the west are the popular sandy beaches of Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe.
The A361 North Devon Link Road to the south provides access to South Molton, Barnstaple, Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27). Main line rail services are available at Tiverton Parkway and Exeter, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.
