Tenure: Freehold

Dormer House is a most attractive olde worlde character cottage with a wealth of original features and charm and is thought to date back over 500 years. The property is located in the centre of the award winning village of Berrynarbor which has amenities including a Primary School with 'Outstanding' rating from Ofsted, a community shop/Post Office, Public House serving food and a Church.

Berrynarbor has won several awards over the years for the "Best Kept Village" from Britain in Bloom and every spring and summer the village is awash with colour with attractive hanging baskets and neat and well-kept gardens throughout. The coast is just a short distance away, only about a mile or so and there is plenty of nearby walking along miles of meandering footpaths which enjoy the best of North Devon's spectacular countryside and coastline. There is a bus service which comes into the village and has links to neighbouring towns and villages including Barnstaple, which is North Devon's main trading centre and is approximately 14 miles away and has many of the big name shops, a rail link to Exeter which then allows a direct route to major Stations within London. Barnstaple also has direct access onto the A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at junction 27 (Tiverton).

The cottage is ideal as a spacious family home which has been tastefully and sympathetically modernised by the present owners and with accommodation arranged over 2 floors. The main entrance for the property is from the front leading into a small entrance lobby. There is a pleasant characterful dining room which has a feature stone fireplace, Brazilian slate floor and a beamed ceiling. The 17' cosy lounge is a particularly charming room and has a large imposing fireplace with bread oven and fitted log burner. There is a built in dresser unit, Brazilian slate floor and a beamed ceiling. At the rear, the 17' kitchen is fitted with a range of pine base and wall units. There are 2 integrated fridges, 2 integrated freezers and an electric Esse Oven and tiled floor. A door opens onto an enclosed gravelled court yard. There is a further 17' reception room which used to be used as the tea room and which has its own separate access door from the side of the property. This room would be ideal for use as a sitting room or study. The ground floor also has a useful cloakroom/wc.

Moving to the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms and a good sized modern bathroom/wc. witch has a white suite including a hand basin set in a vanity unit with cupboard under, vanity light and shaver socket over and a low level W.C. with concealed cistern. In addition there is a panelled bath and a separate walk-in shower cubicle.

The property is beautifully presented throughout and has the benefit of electric heating, some of which has been updated recently with an efficient German system.

At the front of the property there is an enclosed walled court yard which has room tables and chairs and provides a pleasant area to sit out. At the rear of the property a stable door leads from the kitchen onto an enclosed gravelled courtyard which has an outside tap and access into a further W.C. There is a rear pedestrian access gate leading from the courtyard to the rear. The neighbouring property also has a right of way across the rear court yard although this is rarely used.

The property has the benefit of a large double garage which is currently utilised for storage but could comfortably house 2 cars.

This spacious and attractive character cottage must be viewed internally to fully appreciate the size and quality of the accommodation on offer and is ideal for purchasers looking for a family home or holiday cottage/holiday let.
Applicants are advised to proceed from our offices in an easterly direction heading out of town on the A399 sign posted Combe Martin. Continue along this road for approximately 4 miles and turn right into the village of Berrynarbor immediately opposite the Saw Mills Public House. Follow this road for approximately half a mile to the centre of the village passing the Old Globe Inn on the left hand side.
