This three-bedroom, Grade II listed detached cottage occupies a highly prized corner plot measuring a quarter of an acre, on Cotmaton Road in Sidmouth.

The original part of the house is believed to date as far back as 1740, and over the years it has been subject to several updates and enhancements. The property that exists today has retained its original character and has been tastefully updated throughout by the current owners to an extremely high standard.

The reception hallway makes quite the first impression with its lovely parquet and access to natural light. This leads to the large sitting/dining room that also has parquet flooring and a charming inglenook fireplace that houses a wood burning fire.

A second reception room, currently being used as a ground floor bedroom has lovely views over the garden and benefits from an adjacent modern shower room.

The modern, classic kitchen is a bright room with natural light streaming in through the leaded windows. It has been recently installed and is fitted with quality pale-blue units, quartz worktops and has several integrated appliances and a handy breakfast bar.

Exmouth Journal: There is a substantial patio and summer house in the garden

On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms and a spacious shower room with good quality fittings.

Outside, the rear garden is a highlight of the property. The current owners have thoughtfully landscaped this outside space to create a tranquil environment that can be enjoyed all year round. There are areas of lawn, a substantial patio, and a wealth of ornamental shrubs, trees and plants. The large summer house is a wonderful place to relax and two garden sheds and a gardener’s WC are handy additions. A brook runs along the foot of the garden with a bridge across to a further area featuring fine specimen trees, shrubs, and plants.

The property can be accessed by foot through a pedestrian gate from Cotmaton Road, while from Bickwell Valley there is a gate and driveway that leads to the property. The driveway provides ample parking space for several vehicles.
