7 Fore Street is a superbly presented and character filled Grade II Listed cottage, it was rethatched in 2018 and forms one part of the longest row of thatched properties in Devon & potentially England! It is found in a lovely village with a fantastic community and within walking distance of the local shop, foody pub, church, primary school and doctors surgery.
The accommodation includes two double bedrooms and a 2019 fitted shower room upstairs (double shower, Mira electric shower, heated towel rail, sink & wc). Downstairs there is a spacious living room with wood-burning stove and open bread oven, plus a window seat. The kitchen diner offers integrated washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, plus an electric hob and an oil-fired Rayburn which provides central heating and hot water (plus an electric immersion).
Outside we have a south-facing garden (13m x 5m) which is level and enclosed with a lawn, seating area, apple tree and with flowers and strawberries growing in the borders. The rear garden (9m x 4.5m) is low maintenance and again is level and enclosed with a modern oil-tank. To the back is a two-storied outbuilding with a garage / workshop (numerous power points and double doors to rear lane with parking in-front). The staircase leads upstairs which has been plaster boarded and decorated and offers a great study / studio / gym.
POTENTIAL: There is scope to obtain planning permission for the outbuilding to be converted into a self-contained one bedroom annexe / holiday let (subject to permissions). Power and light is already in place and access could come from the lane behind. Water/drainage would also need to be extended to the outbuilding, a large cupboard on the 1st floor could easily become an en-suite shower room and the ground floor is large enough for an open-plan living, kitchen and dining room.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes (Outbuilding / Potential Annexe excluded from floor area).

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.
