This characterful chocolate box thatched cottage, situated in the pretty village of Otterton, has origins dating back to the late 17th Century. Over the years, this delightful four-bedroom dwelling, which is Grade II Listed, has been enhanced and extended, yet it retains much charm and character.
Exposed timber beams and plasterwork are key features and have been restored beautifully. Indeed, the property has been well maintained and is presented in excellent decorative order throughout.
The uncontested highlight of the sitting room is the clutter-free inglenook fireplace with a log burner, that despite its simplicity makes a strong impact. The separate dining room is equally pleasing with low, beamed ceilings and clean floor tiling. The kitchen/breakfast room has an authentic country look to it and benefits from a Rangemaster oven and three south-westerly windows that draw in plenty of natural light.
An inner hallway leads to a study and an en suite ground floor bedroom, that when combined would work well as self-contained accommodation.
On the first floor, the main bedroom is double aspect, with delightful views over neighbouring fields in a south-easterly direction. There is a high ceiling with exposed beams, built-in wardrobes, and an en suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom.
Outside, there is a raised, lawned garden that offers a good degree of privacy, and its south-westerly aspect invites plenty of warm evening sun.
