Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A three bedroom detached home situated in an idyllic rural location with 2 acres of land and benefitting from breath taking far reaching views.

If you are looking for a property with huge potential, peace and tranquillity and you love the outdoors, then this is the property for you.

Pound Cottage is a 1930's three bedroom detached house sat in a commanding elevated position. All of the principal rooms take full advantage of the far reaching, southerly country views. The property, although well looked after would now benefit from cosmetic improvement and offers huge potential for extending (subject to planning). Downstairs the property has a lounge with wood burning stove, a dining room, a WC, a double aspect kitchen with an oil-fired Rayburn cooker which also provides hot water and some heating. There is also a large conservatory. Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower over the bath. Pound Cottage stands well within its mature gardens which change with the seasons. This delightful space offers the potential to be self-sufficient and there is further potential to keep livestock in the paddock below.

This property is set in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, commanding far reaching views southwards over the Otter Valley. Pound Cottage sits in mature gardens of approximately 1 acre. There is also the benefit of a small separate paddock and orchard opposite the property which again, sits in about an acre.

Although rural with delightful country walks that emanate from the front gate, the property is readily accessible to the village of Luppitt with its village hall and ancient parish Church of St Mary and the market town of Honiton some 4.5 miles to the south. Honiton has a range of independent shops as well as the common multiples, sports centre and a main line rail link to London Waterloo.

The city of Exeter lies some 20 miles to the west with excellent shopping facilities, theatres, arts centre, main line rail link to London Paddington, international airport and M5 access. The World Heritage Coastline, colloquially known as the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Bay is approximately 12 miles to the south. Pound Cottage is within the catchment area of Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top mixed state schools.

The property is approached from the lane through double timber gates to a concrete driveway area with ample parking. Adjacent to this is a detached garage with light and power. Steps lead up to the gardens, which have been very well maintained containing many rare and unusual flowers, shrubs and trees. They are bordered to the north-west by natural woodlands and there is also a garden kitchen area and useful timber shed.

On the opposite side of the lane is a one acre paddock in which there is a pond and a small fenced area with a young orchard. The gardens at Pound Cottage are a real feature to the property and are ideal for keen gardeners and lovers of wildlife alike. The property and gardens also benefit from its spectacular elevated views.
