Frost Cottages offers fantastic potential to the next owner. It is set in 1.79 acres in a quiet village edge location and although renovation is required, there is scope here to create a very special home, especially if the attached two-story outbuilding was incorporated into the main home with potential for a building plot too (subject to permissions)!
The Grade II Listed detached cottage dates back to the Mid to Late 17th century and has been owned by the same family for well over 50 years. The current accommodation extends to 164sqm / 1,770sqft and includes two spacious reception rooms and 3-4 bedrooms, plus an attached double garage.
The incredibly mature gardens largely lie to the south and west of the main home, offering a real retreat in calm and peaceful surroundings, especially amongst the trees. There is an approximately 10m x 5m fishpond with Koi Carp gently coasting around. To the rear and side of the driveway (suitable for 3 or 4 cars, but space for far more) is a ‘secret garden’ which many decades ago had planning for a detached bungalow, which the next owner might want to explore once they’ve taken ownership.
Aside of the attached outbuilding there is a detached garden studio (4.78m x 3.49m), a block-based outbuilding for the ride on mower and gardening tools, plus a further timber outbuilding.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes (total floor area excludes double garage & workshop/studio).

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.
