This absolutely charming and well-presented, three-bedroom cottage dates back to 1650 and is Grade II listed. It is ideally located just off the centre of Colyton and is a short walk away from a wide variety of shops and cafes.
The characterful cottage is quite spacious and has been well maintained, with a re-thatch in 2012, followed by an installation of a new kitchen and bathrooms.
Inside, the dwelling has been modernised tastefully. In the large lounge/dining room the focal point is a delightful stone and brick fireplace with a slate tiled hearth, while the bright and airy kitchen has an authentic country look with cream fitted units and a dual aspect. Conveniently, there is also a ground floor bathroom.
On the first floor, there are three bedrooms with built-in cupboards or wardrobes, and a shower room.
The outside space is a lovely surprise with a small courtyard off the lounge which initially appears to be the only garden. Steps from here lead up and around to a delightful higher garden area, where there is a lawn and planting beds. This area is quite private and very sunny.
Unusually, for a property of its age and location, it benefits from a garage and the ability to park two cars right outside. Just behind the garage there is a snug that would work well as an overflow bedroom.
The property is currently let for holidays and private use, and comes with no onward chain.
