An exceptional example of old meets contemporary, located in a desirable South Hams village. Beautifully renovated throughout and cleverly extended with generous garden and separate studio. Garage available by separate negotiation.
This superb and enchanting Grade II listed thatched cottage, offers far more than meets the eye with its pretty chocolate box façade. In our client’s ownership, the property has undergone a thorough renovation programme with an exciting, innovative, contemporary twist. The pretty porch opens into a spacious living room with exposed painted ceiling beams, staircase and oak flooring, which continues into a cosy sitting room with ceiling beams and fireplace. From the living room you enter a showstopping 27ft kitchen/ dining room with bi-folding and French doors opening to the private and extensive rear garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a comprehensive range of units whilst still retaining a cottage feel and incorporates a central island with integrated appliances and granite worktops. From the dining area two steps rise to a contemporary glazed side entrance with doors to a cloakroom and separate utility/ boot room.
The first-floor accommodation is again generous in proportion and is divided into two parts with the landing providing a glass transition area from the old to the new extension at the rear of the property.
In the older part of the cottage there is a double bedroom, with built in wardrobes and storage, and an open plan family area currently used as a music room which could easily be utilized as a fourth bedroom, if required. In the newer part of the property there are a further two double bedrooms including a master bedroom with French doors, Juliet balcony and an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom has a feature glazed corner, with sliding doors providing an outlook over the garden with distant sea views. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower.
Outside there are planted borders with a side gate leading to the side entrance. To the rear is a private and sheltered stone paved patio with steps to the detached timber clad studio with zinc roof. A versatile building, which needs to be completed, with planning permission to be used as a home office or studio. The large garden extends to approx. 0.28 of an acre and is mainly laid to lawn with planted shrubs. There is an air source heat pump which provides underfloor heating to the majority of the property.
Mains electricity, water and drainage. Air source heat pump providing central heating and hot water. Studio's drainage is via a private septic tank.
