Full description

Gardens and grounds of approx. 1.2 acres with this detached stone 3 bed house, outbuildings including a self-contained “Smithy” to use as an annexe or rental, stables, barn and open fronted double garage.

Sawmills Cottage is just 3 miles from the popular rural town of Chulmleigh with its health centre, dentist, shops, restaurants, public houses and schools for all age ranges. The house is also a short distance from Eggesford Station, on the well known 'Tarka' line which provides main line connections at Exeter. The property is only 19 miles from the regional centre of Barnstaple, 20 miles from the city of Exeter, 15 miles from the busy market town of South Molton and 13 miles from Crediton. The area provides a wide range of outdoor pursuits including fishing on the Mole and Taw, horse riding, cycling, walking and golf at Libbaton and High Bullen.

It is one of a handful of properties in this small collection of stone built houses, formerly forming part of the Eggesford estate. A sweeping drive gives access to the private parking, gardens and orchard of the house. Extended in 2001 by the present owners, the accommodation is generous and offers 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 reception rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the gardens and the surrounding valley down towards the Taw. There is oil fired central heating, modern fittings to the kitchen and bathrooms and very little for a new owner to do.

Outside are gardens and orchard extending to approx. 1.2 acres, ample parking and a large open fronted double garage. A stone “Smithy” has been tastefully conserved in the garden, ideal as additional overnight accommodation or it even has income potential, the Smithy is complete with wood burner, a small kitchen and bathroom and is council tax A.

If the Smithy isn't required as a letting unit, a planning application could be made to request that the Council Tax and permissions to use for habitation are removed.

Note: The driveway from the main road is owned by Sawmills Cottage and neighbouring properties have a right of way.

DIRECTIONS From Crediton, proceed on the A377 towards Barnstaple, pass through the villages of Copplestone and Lapford and upon passing Eggesford station, you will see the entrance to the Fox and Hounds Hotel on your left, procced past the first entrance to the hotel and take the second turning into the drive of the hotel and bear immediately right down the unmarked gravel track. Follow the track and when you pass the first pair of semi-detached stone houses on your right, take the middle driveway into Sawmills Cottage.
