Poltimore, ExeterSemi-Detached Country Cottage

£1100 PCM

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.
