EPC=Exempt
Woodpark Cottage represents a quintessential link detached Devon country residence enjoying a delightful rural elevated position on the edge of the pretty and peaceful village of West Worlington overlooking the superb surrounding countryside and the Little Dart River. The cottage, which is Grade II listed, is constructed of stone and cob elevations beneath a thatched roof which was re-timbered, felted and thatched in the mid 1980's. It has been sympathetically refurbished by the current vendor to now provide comfortable and well appointed two bedroomed accommodation exhibiting many period features whilst benefiting from a modern oil fired central heating system in 2013, electrical rewiring in 2014 and insulated floors with underfloor heating in the kitchen, study, bathroom and shower room.
Accessed over a private gated driveway providing ample parking, the property is set in beautiful enclosed south facing large gardens forming a particularly attractive feature. The property also benefits from a useful adaptable outbuilding divided into four rooms with drainage connected. It is thought that this building may offer scope for the creation of an annexe/accommodation subject to obtaining any necessary consents. In total, Woodpark Cottage and its associated gardens extend to about 0.25 Acres.
