Full description

Delightful Grade II listed cottage with plenty of character and a large and well maintained garden. 2 bedrooms. Large garden. Off road parking. Semi-rural location.

Situation - Positioned in an accessible location on the edge of the small village of Alfington, the cottage is well placed for access to the B3177, which links to the A30 and Ottery St Mary, along with a regular bus service.
Alfington has a church and a small village hall, whilst Ottery St Mary, home to the well-respected Kings School, has a host of independent shops, pubs, restaurants, a large Sainsbury store, a sports and leisure centre and a doctors surgery.
Honiton offers a wider selection of shops and facilities, as well as a train station on the Exeter to London Waterloo line. The Cathedral City of Exeter lies some 14 miles to the West. The coast at Sidmouth, a World Heritage site, is to the South.

Description - 6 Summerlands Cottages is a Grade II Listed thatched cottage enjoying a sunny aspect with a large garden. Over recent years the property has served as a successful rental property/holiday home but would equally make a charming character home. It has been well maintained by the current vendors, having recently been decorated throughout, whilst retaining the charm and character of the original cottage, including an inglenook fireplace and exposed beams.
A stable door opens through to the entrance lobby with built in floor to ceiling cupboards providing ample space for storing outside wear. A panelled door opens through to the kitchen comprising solid wood worktops over a comprehensive range of fitted cupboard and drawer units, Belfast sink, integrated dishwasher and washer/dryer with space for a fridge/freezer, fitted double oven and inset hob with granite splashback and extractor over. There is also a good sized larder cupboard for additional storage.
The generous reception room is comfortable with plenty of character, including an impressive inglenook fireplace with exposed brick and window seat, along with an oak floor, which continues through to the conservatory providing plenty of space for dining or a further reception area overlooking the garden.
On the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom, accessed via painted plank doors from the landing with exposed beams. Both bedrooms are to the rear enjoying views along the length of the gardens and adjoining fields; bedroom 1 is a spacious double and bedroom 2 includes a linen cupboard. Both bedrooms are served by a family bathroom comprising a Villeroy and Boch white suite incorporating a shower over the bath.

Outside - To the front is a slab and gravel parking space edged by picket fencing, whilst the extensive rear garden is a fantastic feature, landscaped for easy maintenance, predominantly laid to lawn with flower beds, borders, mature shrubs and trees, along with patios to enjoy the surroundings.

Services - Mains electricity and water. Private drainage.

Directions - From Honiton head west on the A30, turn off left to Ottery St Mary, under the Iron Bridge and turning left again after a short distance to Alfington. Stay on this road entering the small village and the property will be found on the left hand side, identified by a Stags for sale board.
