Situated on the edge of the small Mid Devon village of Stockleigh Pomeroy, this gorgeous Grade II listed thatched cottage is not only pretty but has plenty of space inside and out. Dating back hundreds of years, the thick cob walls and thatched roof are typical of the area and this cottage is one of just three in a row. Being next to the church, it is a pretty location and with the rolling Devon hills to look out over, it is a slice of Devon without being too remote. Crediton is just a 10 minute drive, Tiverton is 20 minutes, meaning transport and amenities are nearby.
The layout of the cottage is somewhat traditional but the room sizes are generous. The living room and dining room both have wood-burning stoves but there is oil fired central heating as well. Off the living room is a useful study/office with door to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room makes the most of the rear aspect and looks over the garden and onto the surrounding fields and a useful utility/shower room/WC completes the ground floor. On the first floor, the 3 bedrooms are served by a good-sized bathroom which was updated not too long ago.
Outside, there is a parking area to the front which is common land and been used, for as far as living memory serves, by these cottages and the garden sits predominantly to the side and rear. It is mainly level and has amazing views to enjoy at all times of the year. There are lawns and pathways, established plants and shrubs and plenty of room to grow your own vegetables. A large greenhouse, block-built store and summer house are also included. See notes below regarding access over the garden.
The house is being sold with no onward chain.
