Originally, the house on this plot would have dated back to the 1700s and remained there until it fell into disrepair in the 1990s. A huge rebuild in the late 1990s produced what you see today, and it’s fair to say that only some outside walls and the chimney stack remain of the original building. That said, the character of the original was retained and you’d be forgiven for not realising on first glance that the majority of the property is much newer than you’d think. Great for a new owner, there’s lots of character throughout but with the ease of maintenance and creature comforts of modern living.
The house occupies a tucked away position in the town and is somewhat of a rarity being detached in this location. There’s also a level plot, parking and a garage, again not what you may expect from a cottage like this. There is mains gas central heating and wood-burning stoves too.
The front door brings you into a dining room with wood-burner and tiled flooring. There is a cosy living room, again with a wood-burner and the kitchen/breakfast room gives a secondary eating area. Beyond the kitchen, a door leads to a covered area where there is a utility room, WC and boiler room. On the first floor are 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room and in the 3rd bedroom, stairs lead to a large light loft room with its own shower room and WC.
Outside, a pretty front garden and pathway lead to the front door and a pathway links to the rear garden. South facing, the garden is level with lawn and paved patio area with a pretty wall creating a courtyard style seating area. The aforementioned covered area is great for all year round use and steps lead to the parking area and garage. The garage is only used as a store but a garage door could be re-installed. There is off-road parking beside the house too.
Agents’ note: The courtyard to the front of the garages is owned by Ivy Drum with each of the garages having right of way at all times for access.

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.
