Compton is a picturesque small village with easy access into Marldon where there is a range of facilities including a well respected primary school, public house/restaurant, post office and general stores. There are large well serviced towns in all directions with Newton Abbot, Torbay and Totnes all possessing a wide range of shopping outlets, eateries/public houses and recreational/cultural facilities. The South Devon Highway provides good access to Exeter, where there is an international airport and the M5 Motorway. There are also local bus services and railway stations in all the major nearby towns.
The cottage itself, once part of the Compton Castle estate, offers spacious and characterful accommodation. It has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of restoration by its present owners including a renewed roof, re-rendered exterior and the installation of bespoke double glazing.
The versatile outside space is a particularly noteworthy feature of the cottage. It measures approximately one third of an acre in all and is a mixture of sloping woodland, courtyard, lawned areas and a parking area with an adjacent shippen/workshop.
The asking price has been set at a competitive level and we highly recommend an internal inspection to fully appreciate the standard and level of accommodation provided.
