As we approach Rose Cottage, it's clear that this is a property that truly embraces its rural location. The brand new water reed thatched roof, completed in 2021, sits atop the charming detached Grade II Listed 1600s cottage, which is tucked away in a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
This gorgeous cottage boasts over 170sqm/1,950sqft of accommodation, including three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a family bathroom, and an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom with its own dressing area and walk-in airing cupboard. The large study/2nd sitting room serving the third bedroom, offers great potential to be adapted to create an internal annexe.
The living room is a particular highlight, with a beautiful inglenook fireplace featuring a wood-burning stove and a cosy window seat, perfect for relaxing with a good book. The kitchen has beech worktops, a Rangemaster cooker with hood, an integrated dishwasher and fridge, and an adjoining dining area.
There's also a handy utility room and a downstairs cloakroom with WC.
This property boasts approximately 0.84 acres of land, including a large, well-maintained garden with meandering lawns, mature trees, and numerous flower beds and borders. The garden is truly breath-taking, offering a perfect spot for outdoor entertaining with a barbecue area or for peaceful relaxation. The gently flowing stream with two foot bridges adds to the tranquil ambiance, and beyond the boundary fence, you'll find stunning farmland views.
You'll also find generous off-road parking in front of the former stable block, now used as a garage and workshop with light, power, and water in place. This building offers potential to create ancillary accommodation to the main home (subject to permissions) or to keep a horse, as the previous owners did.
Across the lane, you'll find a separate paddock, fully enclosed and grassed with mature trees to the top. With the addition of a shepherds hut or similar (subject to permissions), this space would make for an amazing get-away retreat.
Rose Cottage is a must-see property, this could well be your dream home and the owners have found an onward purchase so are ready to progress swiftly.

Kennerleigh, near Woolfardisworthy, is a village truly undisturbed by modernisation, sitting in an exquisite and rural part of Devon, on the verges of a shady, forested valley. It lies on the road to Black Dog and Thelbridge, 4 miles north of the market town of Crediton. Kennerleigh has a traditional style village shop/ post office – that stocks a diverse range of items and local produce. In addition, it features a wonderful example of a Norman church. A short drive away finds the larger village of Sandford, and one of finest pubs in the county; The Lamb Inn – with many accolades, mouth watering food and ales (and an open fire with the odd Jack Russell trotting about). For a modern selection of facilities Crediton is the place, with superb schools (both primary and secondary), a regular farmers market, a leisure centre, a host of interesting shops and two supermarkets.
