This individual, Grade II listed property occupies a prime position right in the heart of the pretty and highly desirable estuary village of Lympstone.

The centrally located period property, named Osborne House, has a rich and interesting history as a former carriage works with a shop. Accessed from The Strand into the garden via double wooden gates, the property is formed of two parts, with the main house on one side and a one-bedroom former coach house and stable on the other side.

Exmouth Journal: The spacious hallway makes quite the first impression

The main property has been converted into a four-bedroom dwelling, with its old shop front still intact, while inside it has been renovated and upgraded by the current owners to create a family home with a variety of potential uses.

Beyond the spacious hallway, there is a cosy snug and a light and spacious kitchen/dining room with a classic look, featuring a u-shape of wooden units, glossy grey worksurfaces and an Aga. From here, patio doors open to the garden. A games room now accommodates the former shop at the front of the house. This could easily be converted back into a shop again or used as another reception room.

Exmouth Journal: The family bathroom is well-appointed

On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Two further bedrooms can be found on the second floor.

Next to the main house, the former carriage builders workshop and stable was converted into a one-bedroom annexe in 2005. On the ground floor is a spacious reception room with a vaulted ceiling and a wood-burning stove, a kitchen and a large wet room with underfloor heating. On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to a double bedroom.

Outside, the rear garden offers a good degree of privacy and features a decking area, an expanse of level lawn and a large shed. A pathway leads to the village car park where it is possible to obtain a permit for parking.

The property comes with no onward chain.
