Set a short distance outside the historic and popular village of Gittisham, Coign Cottage was built close to the site of The Rectory for the village. Gittisham is a picture post card village with a wonderful sense of community with a village hall, church and village green which is central to the village activities, alongside the popular The Pig at Combe. Nearby Honiton offers a range of day to day amenities, schools, recreational facilities, independent shops and cafes as well as a railway station on the Exeter - London (Waterloo) line.


Built in the early 60s this individual chalet style home was designed to make the most of the wonderful views with large picture windows looking down across the land and as far as Dartmoor on a clear day. Improved over the years with uPVC double glazing throughout, bathroom and en suite, cavity wall insulation and a recently resurfaced driveway.


On the ground floor is a lovely L shaped open plan sitting/dining/garden room featuring a cosy open fire place and with large windows which frame the views over the rolling countryside. The kitchen has a range of units with integrated dishwasher, fridge, freezer, electric cooker and LPG hob. A large utility links the house with the garage.


The master bedroom is entered via a separate sitting room and also has an en suite bathroom and large dressing room. A door leads through into the family bathroom and back to the hall giving a flexible arrangement should more bedrooms be required. There is a ground floor guest bedroom.


On the first floor is a large study area and double bedroom with en suite bathroom and access to the large loft space.


To the front of the house and on the site of the former rectory are the main gardens. Specimen shrubs and trees, with well stocked borders, surround the level lawns of the old tennis court sheltered by a tall brick wall. The lawns and shrubs continue behind the house with a ha-ha giving an uninterrupted view across the field and view.


With outside WC.



One timber loose box, tack room and adjoining small barn with post and rail yard.


West of the house a sheltered paddock slopes away to a stream on the far boundary. Along the Southern boundary a path winds gently through a parcel of deciduous woodland home to a variety of flora and fauna including Spring Blue Bells. A stone wall and fence encloses a further paddock interspersed with trees, including Apple, Plum and Ash.


Mains electric. Private water rising on the land. Private drainage.


From Honiton, head south on the A375 towards Sidmouth. Climbing the hill out of Honiton, turn right signposted to Gittisham. Stay on this lane mile through the woods and as the road bears right and then left, the drive can be found shortly on the left (before you get to the centre of the post code).
