A rare opportunity to purchase a charming, quintessentially English, Grade II Listed, thatched cottage with two bedrooms and a superb one bedroom barn conversion providing ancillary accommodation, in a prime location within the heart of the picturesque Dartmoor village of Lustleigh.
This fabulous, thatched cottage has picture postcard looks, is beautifully presented inside and out and it simply oozes character and olde worlde charm with its exposed beams, casement windows set into the thick walls with seats beneath, and a wonderful stone inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove that makes the whole property feel warm and cosy.
A thatched storm porch shelters the entrance and leads into an entrance hallway which has a tiled floor that continues throughout the ground floor. The kitchen is modern and is in a country-kitchen style with plenty of worktop space on three sides and a range of cream fitted base and wall units providing ample cupboard space complete with under-cabinet feature lighting and tiled splashbacks. There is a built-in fan-oven with a ceramic hob and an extractor hood above, a stainless-steel sink and mixer tap, floor space for an upright fridge/freezer and space with plumbing beneath the worktop for a washing machine and slimline dishwasher. There is also a handy heated towel rail for drying the tea towels.
The living room has underfloor heating and is filled with light from a south facing window with a seat beneath. There is a handy under-stairs cupboard, integral display shelving and a fabulous stone Inglenook fireplace with a chunky oak lintel, fitted with a wood burning stove, making a wonderful feature and focal point for the room. There are low-level cupboards built into the recess on one side of the chimney breast and plenty of space for a dining table beneath the window, ideal for mealtimes.
Upstairs, there is plush carpet underfoot and two good-sized bedrooms, a twin room with a wardrobe and a window overlooking the quaint thatched tearoom opposite and a double with a fitted wardrobe built into the thick stone wall and an airing cupboard with an insulated hot water cylinder above the stairs. A modern bathroom has a vinyl floor and part-tiled walls containing a P-bath with an electric shower and glass screen above, a pedestal basin and a WC, all in white.
Also with this property, there is ancillary accommodation in the form of a fabulous one bedroom barn conversion, tastefully converted in approximately 2007 and located a few yards away beside Wray Brook and fronting onto woodland.
Accessed from a footpath, a gate leads into the garden, and rustic external doors open to reveal double-glazed hardwood inner doors to the property. Inside, it immediately feels warm and welcoming. A wonderful living area has a high vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers, and a durable tiled floor which continues throughout the ground floor. There is a wood burning stove which makes it feel cosy despite its high ceiling. This room flows through into a kitchen/dining room which has plenty of space for a dining table, and a modern, well-equipped fitted kitchen with a comprehensive range of integrated appliances including a fan-oven, with a ceramic hob and extractor hood above, a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge. A staircase leads up to a fabulous mezzanine double-bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and a hardwood balustrade overlooking the living area.
Beside the living area is a modern bathroom with a white suite comprising a centre-fill bath, with an electric shower and glass screen above, a pedestal basin, a WC, a chrome heated towel rail and a medicine cabinet with mirror doors. There is an airing cupboard with a hot water cylinder and immersion heater on a timer and, accessed via a vertical ladder there is also a second mezzanine area providing plenty of storage space, with a gate and hardwood balustrade.
Outside the garden is superb, private, south facing and bordered by Wray Brook. A footbridge crosses to the protected woodlands opposite, which is managed by the Wildlife Trust. The garden is low maintenance with a large terrace of paving dissected by gravel paths, creating an outside space perfect for entertaining, be it a barbecue or alfresco dining. A timber summerhouse provides useful storage, there is a lean-to log store for the wood burner and an outside tap for convenience.
Please note – Both the cottage and the barn offer fantastic potential for holiday lets. All contents, carpets and whitegoods etc. are available by separate negotiation.
