Located in an ideal western town edge position, close to both primary and secondary schools, bus route and within walking distance of the town centre and its amenities, this is a unique family home with a lot to offer. There is a mix of underfloor heating and traditional radiators plus the wood-burner, and the carpets were replaced in 2019. It is also worth noting that the boiler has been upgraded and in 2018 the roof over the kitchen was replaced. A new bathroom was installed in early 2018 and the whole house has been rewired so there really isn’t anything for a new owner to do except enjoy!
The cottage has been stylishly renovated to make the most of the character and space on offer, internally and externally. As expected with a family home, there is plenty of flexibility with the accommodation and storage throughout plus off-road parking for 3 cars and a generous garden which backs onto fields. The layout gives a large living room with wood burner, a separate dining room with plenty of exposed timbers and a bespoke kitchen with new flooring having been added in 2022 which makes the most of the character of the home. The kitchen island was designed specifically for the space with storage, Smeg hob and circular sinks and is a real feature of the house. Further larder style storage provides more hidden storage and with spaces for a dishwasher and microwave. To one end is a studio or bedroom with its own access to outside plus plumbing for utilities. This room can be used for a host of different uses to suit, including those working from home or a games room. The stairs can be accessed from both the front and rear rooms and are exposed timber and another feature of the house. They lead to a landing with further storage, with three bedrooms (one with WC), the family bathroom and a 4th room (including airing cupboard and boiler) which could be a study
ursery or is currently a useful ironing room.
Outside, there is a carport and further parking to the front (space for 3 cars) with direct access to the front door or to the studio. From the kitchen are double doors leading to the garden which is initially a courtyard with a block-built store and steps leading up the garden. There is a lovely private BBQ area and the garden continues to lawns, with three vegetable beds. Towards the very top is a wildlife garden and chicken run. There is a tree playhouse, garden shed and the views over the rooftops to the surrounding countryside are beautiful.

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.
