Hare Cottage is a charming Grade II listed property thought to date back to 1800, originally an Inn on what was the Crediton to Barnstaple road, situated within the quiet village of Newbuildings.

The property is in lovely order and abundant in character and charm throughout. The accommodation is extremely well proportioned and spacious, extending to some 3,000sqft.

From the welcoming reception hall, latched doors lead to a series of rooms, including a lovely sitting room with fireplace & gas fire, an elegant dining hall, perfect for formal entertaining, with the afore mentioned rooms enjoying parquet flooring throughout. In keeping with the principal reception rooms, there is a very large farmhouse style kitchen diner, once again a lovely room with high, exposed beams, and a 4 door Aga set within a large former fireplace with bread oven. Further ground floor accommodation includes the utility room and a separate cloakroom. On the first floor a large landing, which could make for a suitable study area, provides access to four double bedrooms, served by a modern shower room. The master enjoys a modern en-suite bathroom with shower & curved screen over the P-shaped bath. There is oil-fired central heating throughout.


An attractive cobbled courtyard to the front provides parking for three to four cars, while remote electronic double doors provide access to a garage 6.38m x 3.33m (20'10" x 10'1").

The whole garden is south-facing, with the plot reaching between a fifth & a quarter of an acre in total. Immediately behind the property there is an enclosed courtyard which is excellent for outdoor entertaining. From here, a pathway leads to the main garden which is secluded and very well kept. It is arranged principally as lawn, with an array of mature flower beds and a vegetable plot to the far end. Within the courtyard there is a spring fed well while in the garden there is a useful workshop and implement shed.
