A seamless blend of traditional with modern, it is a quintessential, English thatched cottage. With looks straight from a chocolate box or picture postcard, the property has been sympathetically refurbished to create a spacious and light family home, set in delightful gardens with super tranquil views.

The main entrance leads into the entrance hall with access to the sitting room and boot room/utility which was previously the main kitchen, with lots of storage and drying space and benefitting from a Belfast sink with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

An inner hall gives access to the shower room and the family kitchen, which is spacious and light with glazed doors overlooking the gardens to countryside beyond. There is a range of traditional painted units with wooden worktops over. With a corner fireplace housing the wood burning stove and a large Velux window bringing additional light into the room, this really makes a perfect place for routine meals, family celebrations or dinner parties.

The sitting room is a beautiful room with a peaceful ambiance and houses a large fireplace with a wood burning stove and lovely views of the garden and far reaching countryside can be enjoyed from the three windows.

The ground floor is complete with a door leading into the annex which offers a dual aspect open plan living room with doors leading out into the garden. There is a small kitchen area ideal for day to day needs and on the first floor is a cosy double bedroom and bathroom. The annex is ideal for those with a dependent relative or those looking for a country retreat with income potential.

Back in the main house, there are two double bedrooms on the lower ground level and on the first floor is the master bedroom, with a delightful dressing room and bathroom and a landing with stairs leading down to the ground floor.

Walking through the wooden gate to the property is like going back in time. A path leads through the garden with a pretty painted summer house to the many seating areas from which to enjoy alfresco dining or just drinks with friends whilst taking in the stunning Devon countryside.

Enjoy an amble over tended lawns, past scented borders of mature trees and shrubs to the extensive vegetable garden. This lovely home is ideal for those looking to live the good life with enough space for chickens and other animals.
