Tenure: Freehold

A most attractive Grade II listed character detached cottage enjoying a lovely village setting and superb large gardens, benefitting from ample off road parking, a garage/workshop, log store, office and greenhouse, the whole extending to about 0.18 Acres.


Fir Cottage represents a quintessential Devon cottage enjoying a delightful position in a sought after village, with wonderful private gardens. The house, which is Grade II listed and believed to date in part from the early 18th century with later extensions to the rear, has been sympathetically improved by the present vendor to provide comfortable two bedroomed accommodation exhibiting many period features, benefiting from LPG central heating and part double glazing.
Set back from the village road the property is accessed over a private driveway providing ample off road parking and access to the single garage. Beautiful large enclosed gardens form a particularly attractive feature, ideal for children and pets. The property also benefits from a useful range of outbuildings including a greenhouse, office, workshop, log store and a partly built store. In total Fir Cottage and its associated gardens extend to about 0.18 Acres.

The desirable village of Chittlehamholt lies in gently undulating and unspoilt North Devon countryside between the valleys of the Rivers Taw and Mole. The village has a thriving local community and boasts an historic public house, The Exeter Inn, a village hall, community shop and the Highbullen Country House Hotel, offering an 18 hole golf course, swimming pool, gym and excellent leisure facilities.
The nearby B3226 affords an easy link to the market town of South Molton providing a good range of everyday services including shops, banks, recreational facilities, primary and secondary schooling. From South Molton the A361 North Devon Link Road provides quick and easy access to the regional centre of Barnstaple to the north-west and Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27) to the south-east.
