THE PROPERTY

An enchanting 16th century country cottage, Listed Grade II, with Three Bedroom Cottage Annexe, set in a tranquil East Devon Valley. This very special quintessential country cottage has provided a happy home for a number of owners who have lived there over the years. The original cottage, believed to date back to the 16th century, has been cleverly extended and now exquisitely decorated by the present owner, a much acclaimed interior decorator, resulting in a pleasing blend of character features together with modern fittings and amenities. A thatched entrance porch with flagstone floor has further timber door leading into a charming sitting room, originally two rooms with an inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove and bread oven, recessed shelved cupboard and shutters on the three windows. A door leads into a staircase and a further door through to the dining area of the light and spacious kitchen/dining room arranged on two levels. The kitchen area has a two-oven electric AGA with an electric module and a range of bespoke and hand painted cupboards with wooden surfaces. A door leads through to the utility / rear entrance with a sink and ample space for large American style fridge freezer. From the dining area a door leads down to a study/playroom, in turn opening out into an inner hall with a cloakroom with a cupboard providing space for washing machine and tumble dryer. A snug/tv room has two walls of bookcases and recessed shelves ideal for a television. A door from the inner hall leads up to the principal bedroom, which is beautifully decorated, has high vaulted ceiling with exposed painted ceiling timbers, two walk-in cupboards and an en suite bathroom. An original staircase leads from the sitting room up to two further double bedrooms, both having good cupboards and a family bathroom with wash basin, wc and panelled bath with shower. The cottage annexe was converted and extended from an original barn and provides an entrance hall, three good-sized bedrooms all beautifully decorated and are served by a bathroom with a shower. At the end of this building is a wood shed.
