Description

A unique and well finished cottage on the edge of the town with large flexible living spaces, 3 or 4 bedrooms, parking and large gardens with stunning views bordering onto fields.

Located in an ideal western town edge position, close to both primary and secondary schools, doctors, bus route and within walking distance of the town centre and its amenities, this is a unique family home with a lot to offer. There’s a mix of underfloor heating and traditional radiators plus the wood-burner. The carpets were replaced in 2019. It is also worth nothing that the boiler was upgraded at the same time and comes with a warranty. In 2019 the roof over the kitchen was replaced, again with a guarantee. A new bathroom was installed in early 2018 and the whole house has been rewired so there really isn’t anything for a new owner to do except enjoy!

The cottage has been stylishly renovated to make the most of the character and space on offer, internally and externally. As expected with a family home, there’s plenty of flexibility with the accommodation and storage throughout plus off-road parking and a generous garden which backs onto fields. The layout gives a large living room with wood burner, a separate dining room with plenty of exposed timbers and a bespoke kitchen which makes the most of the character of the home. The kitchen island was designed specifically for the space with storage, Smeg hob and circular sinks and is a real feature of the house. Further larder style storage provides more hidden storage and houses the oven and spaces for a dishwasher and microwave. To one end is a studio or bedroom with it’s own access to outside plus plumbing for utilities. This room can be used for a host of different uses to suit including those working from home or a games room (note the snooker table!). The stairs can be accessed from both the front and rear rooms and are exposed timber and a feature of the house. They lead to a landing including more storage with 3 bedrooms (one with WC), the family bathroom and a 4th room (including airing cupboard and boiler) which could be a study/nursery or is currently a useful laundry room.

Outside, there is a carport and further parking to the front with direct access to the front door or to the studio. From the kitchen are double doors leading to the garden which is initially a courtyard with block built store and steps leading up the garden. There’s a lovely private BBQ area and the garden continues to lawns and towards the very top is an area previously used as a vegetable plot and chicken run. There’s a playhouse, garden shed and the views over the rooftops to the surrounding countryside are beautiful.

Crediton An ancient market town, with a contemporary feel – only a short, 20-minute drive nw from the city of Exeter. Set in the Vale of the River Creedy, amongst gentle, rolling hills and verdant pastures. Sincerely picture postcard. Once the capital of Devon, Crediton is famed for its inspiring sandstone church and for being the birthplace of Saint Boniface in 680 ad. Its high street is a vibrant place, abuzz with trade –artisan coffee shops, roaring pubs, a farmers’ market and bakeries, jam-packed with mouthwatering delights. For those commuting it has hassle free transport links into Exeter and for schooling a prestigious community college (Queen Elizabeth’s) – with an Ofsted “outstanding” sixth form. In addition, it boasts a brilliant gym & leisure centre for New Year’s resolutions, two supermarkets for the weekly shop and a trading estate for any practical needs. All neatly held in a single valley.
