Amaury Cottage is a surprisingly spacious L-shaped terraced cottage, found in the heart of the wonderful village of Morchard Bishop, yet tucked away from the road in a nice and quiet position.
It is believed to have been two cottages previously, hints of this are apparent with the two staircases serving the first floor. The accommodation reaches approximately 145sqm / 1,546sqft and includes four double bedrooms. To one end is the master and 2nd bedroom, served by a bathroom with shower and screen over the bath and his and hers sinks. To the western end are two further double bedrooms, served by a shower room.
Downstairs we have a kitchen diner, with a brand-new Wren kitchen fitted in 2022, including a centre island, with space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is also a wood-burning stove and an attached utility room with a 2nd sink and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The huge living room extends to over 6m x 4m and features a large wood-burning stove. There are Solar PV panels (owned outright) which provide free power to the cottage while it’s being generated, but do not receive money back from the grid. The whole property has oil-fired central heating and uPVC double glazing. In addition is a new garden office which is double glazed, insulated, has light, power and wired-in broadband, with its own outside WC attached.
Outside: To the front is off-road parking for 3 cars, a garage/workshop with light and power points, a wood-store and the oil-tank. To the rear from the utility we head over a small leat and proceed up 5 steps to a very pleasant paved seating area. Paths lead to the main, south-facing and largely lawned garden (16m x 14m) which backs onto fields offering a lovely outlook and the feeling of space. There is also a fishpond, greenhouse, shed and productive veg beds and borders growing runner beans, tomatoes and onions.

MORCHARD BISHOP is a village and civil parish set in the sumptuous hills and valleys of Mid-Devon, halfway between the North and South of the County, 7 miles west of Crediton and 14 miles from the regional capital, Exeter. The showpiece is the spectacular 16th Century Church of St Mary's, one of two churches in the village. This small but thriving community, with a population of just under 1000 has a primary school, doctor's surgery and local shops. Those who lead an active lifestyle can take advantage of the football, netball and outdoor tennis clubs as well as enjoying a game of bowls on the Green. At the centre is the friendly London Inn, loved for its generous servings of delicious, locally sourced food. Dating back 400 years, this traditional pub was once a stop for passing coaches when the main road from Exeter ran through the village. Today, the nearby railway station at Morchard Road carries passengers from Exeter to Barnstaple along the scenic Tarka Line. Dartmoor and Exmoor, areas of outstanding natural beauty are within 30 minutes' drive.
