Property description

A Grade II Listed cottage with delightful gardens in the heart of the desirable village of North Whilborough. Easy access to amenities, well stocked gardens, spacious reception rooms, light, open kitchen and utility, 2 bedrooms. Off road parking. EPC Band: E.


Situation


Gas Lamp Cottage sits in the centre of the favoured Teignbridge village of North Whilborough with easy access to amenities and communications at Torbay, Totnes and Newton Abbot. Torbay covers the three major towns of the bay - Torquay, Paignton and Brixham - collectively known as The English Riviera. Torquay is the largest and offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational, recreational and sporting facilities. There are plenty of beaches within the bay, including some beautiful more secluded ones, which are slightly off the beaten track. Torquay has a theatre, Paignton has a cinema complex and Brixham is a traditional fishing town. Totnes is a town full of historic interest, which has narrow streets and a Norman castle, today a bustling and thriving market town, that retains much of its original character, with a wide range of good local schools, shopping facilities and recreational pursuits including indoor swimming pool and boating opportunities on the River Dart. There is a mainline railway station at Newton Abbot with links to London Paddington and access to the motorway network via the A380.

Description


Gas Lamp Cottage is an attached 2 bedroom cottage that we believe has origins in the 17th century and was once the local bakery and/or smokehouse. Period features include original wooden beams, a circular stone former smokehouse, now the dining nook and a large walk-in bread oven on either side of a large central fireplace and chimney. For those seeking period character and charm, you won't go far wrong with this cute village cottage.

Accommodation


A solid timber stable door leads from the cottage garden at the front into the main reception room, with a further timber door to the kitchen, a metal spiral staircase up to the first floor accommodation and two arches into the dining nook and the 'computer room'. The dining room, fashioned from a former smokehouse, has high leaded windows over the front and side of the property, space for a round table and has been fitted with a semi-circular bench, creating the perfect cosy dining area. The computer room is fashioned from a former walk-in bread oven with space for a bar stool, a computer and some stationery storage. The sitting room has period wood beams and a large central stone fireplace and hearth with an inset Dean Forge wood burner. Several windows and a timber door lead into the kitchen which is fitted with modern base and wall units and a breakfast bar with rolled edge wood effect surfaces, a stainless steel sink-and-a-half unit with chrome mixer tap over, space and plumbing for washing machine and under counter freezer and has a 4-burner electric hob with electric oven under.
The utility room has a timber door out to the back garden, windows over the back and side, the gas boiler and space and electrics for further appliances. Up the cast iron spiral staircase, the landing has doors to the two bedrooms and the family bathroom, which is fitted with a pedestal wash hand basin, a panelled bath with electric Mira Sport shower over, WC and multi-paned windows overlooking the charming rear garden. Bedroom 1 stretches from the front to the back of the house and has two built-in wardrobes, period style exposed woodwork and a multi-paned window overlooking the front of the property, as is found in Bedroom 2, as well.

Outside


The front of the property is accessed through a small timber gate into a charming cobbled cottage garden with raised beds, well stocked with herbs, specimen shrubs and flowering plants. The rear garden is accessed via the parking area through large, double wooden gates onto a level decked area that runs the full width of the property. The garden is laid out in three distinct levels; the lowest lawned area being the former drive to the single garage at the back of the property; a raised lawn with stone walled borders, burgeoning with specimen flowers and shrubs and a further terraced area with the vegetable and soft fruit patch, a large pond and water feature and further bountiful flower beds and borders.

Services


Mains electricity, mains water, mains drainage and mains gas with gas fired central heating.
