Tenure: Leasehold

Lease Cottages is situated in an idyllic location surrounded by glorious Devon countryside owned by The National Trust creating a haven for wildlife and would delight any keen walker or wildlife enthusiast. This wonderful rural setting is only 8 miles from Exeter and the M5 is also within easy reach, providing swift access to both the north and south. The nearby village of Silverton has a good range of local amenities including convenience store, church, schools and public houses.

The property itself has been sympathetically extended and refurbished in recent years by the current owner, creating a superb character cottage with a stunning kitchen/dining room; fitted with a traditional range of cupboards and drawers both at base and eye level, whilst allowing room for modern appliances with chimney recess space for a Rangemaster style cooker. There is plenty of room for a family sized dining table and chairs creating a wonderful environment for families to cook, dine and socialise together. The sitting room is another spacious dual aspect room with feature inglenook fireplace and multi fuel/wood burning stove. The large family bathroom is fitted with a modern period style suite with roll top bath and ornate feet. It also benefits from a separate walk-in shower cubicle.

On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a landing space that is large enough to possibly use as an office area. The master bedroom has glorious countryside views and en-suite toilet. Most of the rooms have exposed beams adding to the charm of the home. The property also benefits from a modern LPG central heating system.

To the side of the property is a substantial driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and access to the garage with light and power.

The gardens and outside space are superb and a particular feature of this property, being a fantastic size, south facing and adjoining National Trust land. Immediately outside the back door is your own private well and then a large expanse of lawn borders well-established flowerbeds which are bursting with a variety of specimen plants, shrubs and trees.

A range of outbuildings include a workshop with light and power and a brick built outhouse/shed. There is a chicken run and a feature archway leads through to a large expanse of decking including a BBQ area, a treehouse, pergola and wood store.

This truly is an idyllic setting enjoying an excellent degree of privacy and seclusion.
