A charming listed semi-detached thatched cottage with approximately 0.25 acres of garden in a beautiful rural location and only 10 minutes from Exeter City Centre. Offering 3 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms and a walled garden with running stream.
This picturesque 17th century, listed semi-detached thatched cottage was built around 1650 by the Bampfylde family of nearby Poltimore House. The original cross-passage longhouse was subdivided in the 19th century to form two separate dwellings of which number 1 retains the principal features. Ancient and modern blend seamlessly together in this special cottage. In addition to the enduring character of thatch, cob, sandstone and old oak, a substantial extension (added in more recent years) has created a new level of comfort and modern amenities. The current owners have further enhanced the quality of the interior with bespoke oak joinery and solid bronze fittings throughout.
Outside, the generous front garden and parking area for up to 4 cars are bordered by an attractive stream and separated from the lane by a red sandstone wall. The rear garden is fully enclosed and is completely private with lawn, flowerbeds, paved sun trap area for eating 'al fresco' and a lovely thatched children's tree house.
