The best of country and coastal life can be experienced at this delightful cosy cottage right in the heart of the picturesque village of Branscombe. Close to the church and the Masons Arms, the two bedroom stone cottage is not only well located but it is as charming on the inside as it is on the outside.
The property is perfect for those who like hiking as the long beach at Branscombe is a stone's throw away and a vast choice of coastal and countryside walks are right on the doorstep.
Inside, the cottage is warm, welcoming and cosy, and is beautifully presented. The interior has been sympathetically restored and boasts a wealth of character features.
Its layout is topsy-turvey with the bedrooms on the ground floor and the main living area on the first floor, but this arrangement works well and makes better use of the natural light that streams through the windows on the first floor.
On the ground floor, there are two good-sized bedrooms, each with a fitted wardrobe, and there's a quality fitted bathroom, plus separate cloakroom suites.
On the first floor, the main living space has a particularly pleasant open plan layout. The U-shaped kitchen is fitted with warm oak units, cream worksurfaces and integrated appliances. This flows into the space used as the main living and dining area. The whole room has a timeless look and benefits from chunky exposed beams, a beautiful vaulted ceiling and is finished off with traditional oak flooring. A small balcony can be accessed from this level.
The property is currently rented out as a successful holiday let. Should a prospective buyer wish to buy the property with its existing furniture intact, the current owners are open to a separate negotiation.
