Full description

A charming, spacious and versatile period cottage with an adjoining annex and large gardens in a sought after and peaceful village close to the Jurassic Coast.

Yew Tree House is a beautifully presented, charming and spacious period cottage together with an adjoining converted barn which forms a lovely 2 bedroom self -contained annex.

Believed to date back to the 16th century, formerly a farmhouse and later the village post office, this pretty stone and rendered Grade 11 Listed cottage has in recent years been the subject of extensive modernisation with improvements including a bespoke hand crafted kitchen, new bath and shower rooms, installation of mains gas central heating and the conversion of the barn to form an annex.

The cottage retains a wealth of original character features including an inglenook fireplace with a Woodwarm Firegem stove and former bread oven, exposed beams and stonework, window seats, cottage doors and a principle bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and exposed A frame.

The cottage stands in a delightful extensive ½ acre south facing garden with plenty of space to construct a garage (subject to the necessary consents being obtained). Immediately adjoining the cottage, and with doors opening from the annex is a sheltered, sunny courtyard beyond
which there are lawned gardens interspersed with a wide variety of trees and shrubs bordered by a small stream. For the keen gardener there is a separate large vegetable garden, sheds and a greenhouse. A gated driveway to the side of the cottage leads to parking for several cars.

Enjoying a picturesque setting within the beautiful Axe Valley the sought after village of Musbury has excellent local facilities including a garage, incorporating a shop and post office, public house, primary school and bus services. It is also within the catchment area for Woodroffe and Axminster schools plus Colyton Grammar School.

The coastal resort of Seaton and the beautiful Jurassic Coast is within about 3 miles and the historic town of Lyme Regis with its iconic Cobb Harbour is about 6 miles. The market town of Axminster is about 4 miles and offers a variety of shops and facilities and a main line station
with services to Exeter and London Waterloo. The city of Exeter with its regional airport and access to the M5 are all within easy reach.

Local Authority - East Devon District Council.
Council Tax Band - E
Services - Mains gas, water and drainage.

Directions.
From Lyme Regis take the A3052 towards Seaton. At Boshill Cross turn right onto the A358 signed posted Musbury. On entering the village turn right just before the garage then right again at the cross roads into Combpyne Road. Yew Tree House will be seen after a short distance on the left.
