A beautiful, Grade II listed, double fronted cottage, dating back to 1793, offering beautiful period features throughout and an attractive cottage garden to the rear, offering countryside views and benefitting from an agreement for parking. Located in the sought after village of Lower Odcombe, this property is a must-see.

Thought to date back to 1793, Franklin Cottage is a beautiful, Grade II listed cottage, constructed of local Hamstone under an attractive slate roof.

The part-glazed wooden door to the front of the property leads into an entrance hallway with tiled floor, providing a neat space to store coats and shoes with a further door beyond leading into the stunning living room, with wooden flooring, mullioned window seat to the front aspect, exposed beams and remarkable Hamstone inglenook fireplace with a large wooden mantle. Inset into the fireplace is a gas fire.

Steps from the sitting room lead up to the snug, providing a peaceful spot to sit and read and where the gas fired central heating boiler is located and further stairs lead to the first floor.
Beyond the sitting room is a small hallway leading to the utility room, with skylight and fitted with some wall mounted cupboards along with space for a fridge/freezer and space and plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble dryer. A part-glazed door from the utility room leads out to the garden. Beside the utility room is a cloakroom with low level WC and corner basin.

To the rear of the property is the fitted kitchen, with window to the rear aspect, tiled flooring and a range of wall and base units with quartz worktops over and tiled splashbacks, one and a half bowl sink with drainer routed into the worktop, space for a gas cooker with extractor hood over and space for a fridge.

At the front of the property is a lovely dining room, with wooden flooring, mullioned window seat to the front aspect, open fire place and exposed beams, providing a superb entertaining space.
The attractive wooden staircase from the snug leads up to the first floor landing, beautifully lit by a ceiling fitted skylight, carpeted with loft access and an airing cupboard. The landing provides access to all of the first floor accommodation.

The master bedroom is a generous room with mullion window to the front aspect, decorative Hamstone fireplace and former window seat fitted to the rear. The bedroom is carpeted and also benefits from fitted storage.

Bedrooms two and three to the front aspect are both carpeted and benefit from mullion windows to the front aspect, one of which has fitted storage.

Completing the first floor accommodation is the family bathroom, part-tiled and fitted with a white suite of bath with shower over, low level WC and pedestal sink.
