Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Appletree Cottage is conveniently situated in the heart of this popular East Devon village with all the excellent local amenities within walking distance including the highly regarded primary school, convenience store and railway station which connects Exeter and London Waterloo. The surrounding countryside creates an idyllic setting and offers excellent walking/horse-riding facilities. The A30 dual carriageway is also within easy reach providing swift access to the Cathedral City of Exeter, M5 and the coast.

The property itself is beautifully presented and has been refurbished whilst being sympathetic to the age of this wonderful home, highlighting the character and charming features including exposed beams, feature fireplaces with bread ovens, etc. The light and airy, well-proportioned and spacious family-sized accommodation is also highly versatile and could easily adapt to accommodate an independent relative with ground floor accommodation/annexe.

The reception hall has a fine and welcoming first impression with flagstone flooring, oak doors and beams, setting the theme throughout the rest of the property. There is a large office and ground floor double bedroom, both of which adjoin a well-appointed shower room and provide flexible uses. The cosy sitting room has feature inglenook fireplace with woodburning/multi-fuel stove and bread oven, and a very impressive kitchen/dining room which is certainly the heart of the home, fully fitted with an extensive range of oak cupboards and drawers, both at base and eye level, enhanced by solid granite worktops and attractive tiled splashbacks. There is plenty of room for a family-sized dining table and chairs in front of the second inglenook fireplace with woodburning/multi-fuel stove and bread oven. This is a superb room for families to cook, dine and socialise together and will not fail to impress!

The garden room and music room are open plan, again creating a nice, light and open feel with pleasant garden views - another large, adaptable room.

On the first floor are four double bedrooms, the master benefitting from beautiful country views and an en-suite facility. Most of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and there is a family bathroom fitted with a white suite, and has both bath and separate shower cubicle. The property benefits from a modern gas central heating system.

The property is approached via a substantial gravelled driveway providing off-road parking for several vehicles including boats, caravans, etc. and access to a large double garage with light and power. The gardens and grounds are a sheer delight and would please any keen gardener whilst allowing plenty of room for children to run and play.

The gardens extend to three sides of the property, each creating a different purpose. The rear and principal garden is predominantly laid to lawn and dispersed by mature plants and shrubs with a very large kitchen/vegetable area bordered by mature hedging, and a side garden is bursting with a variety of specimen plants and shrubs and in a cottage design with an interesting show of colours throughout the year. There is a further lawned area for children's trampolines, etc. The gardens enjoy an excellent degree of privacy and there is a large paved patio area providing plenty of room to enjoy outdoor dining/entertaining in this idyllic setting.

The property enjoys a south-westerly aspect taking full advantage of the sun throughout the day. The total plot area is approximately 0.375 of an acre.

This is a superb opportunity to acquire a substantial characterful home in the King's School catchment
with country views and beautiful gardens and grounds. Viewings are strongly advised!
