Located in the pretty village of Thorverton, with its village stores, pubs and active community, this end of terraced thatched cottage is a super home. With excellent links to Exeter, Thorverton has long been a desirable location for those seeking a relaxed village whilst only being 10-15 minutes from the city centre.
The cottage is Grade II Listed and is of cob construction with a thatched roof. Many of the original features have been preserved with the large fireplace to the living room, characterful beams to the kitchen and the large master bedroom on the first floor, all acting as reminders of the past. It has the modern conveniences of a fitted kitchen to the rear and a shower room to the ground floor as well as a bathroom on the first floor. The second bedroom could alternatively be used as a study but offers the flexibility. The cottage is heated by electric (storage heaters).
Outside to the rear, accessed from the kitchen, is a pretty courtyard approx. 3m x 4m providing a private place to sit out, plus there is a raised covered area approx. 3m x 2m giving further options. Parking is on the street to the front and there is a village car park (free) less than 100m from the cottage.
Agents note: As in many older cottages, there are a couple of lower beams in the kitchen to be aware of, the rest of the ceiling heights are very good.
