Bedrooms: 4
A delightful detached four bedroom period home that offers character accommodation in an outstanding private and rural setting of about 3.1 acres.

This delightful stone cottage offers flexible accommodation in a wonderful location and benefits from many original features.

The accommodation includes a large open plan breakfast kitchen on the ground floor with steps down to a sitting room. A door off the sitting room leads to a utility room and the family bathroom. Another door from the kitchen leads into the lounge which has a beautiful inglenook fireplace with inset wood burner. From the lounge, steps lead up to a double bedroom and a further door leads to an inner hallway which gives access to a single bedroom and a stair case to the first floor which leads to two more double bedrooms.

Attached to the house is a corrugated out building which houses the oil fired boiler, hot water tank, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a chest freezer. From the utility room a covered area leads to another outbuilding which has been used for many years for entertaining and extra accommodation. This building offers huge potential.

The property further benefits from oil fired central heating, part double glazing and solar panels (with a solar boost that heats the water). These give a feed in tariff of about 18.02 per KWH.

Situated in a rural hamlet about a mile and a half outside the sought after village of Stockland, which is on the edge of the Blackdown Hills, conveniently located between the market towns of Honiton, Chard and Axminster. There is a thriving, sociable community, which is also home to The Stockland and Yarcombe pre-school. The village hall has a cricket pitch, tennis courts, children's play area and public house. The Stockland primary academy school (Ofsted Outstanding) and the Church of St. Michael and All Angels are also nearby.

A real feature of this lovely home is its outside space. The cottage sits in about 0.96 acres of beautifully presented garden which wraps around the property and is surrounded by woodland. It includes areas of grass, an array of ornamental trees, plants and shrubs, an orchard, a spring fed pond and a growing area which includes a large polytunnel. The garden attracts all kinds of wildlife. Within the garden are several sheds.

To the front of the cottage there is a garden area which leads to the front door and a covered area. To the front of the separate outbuilding is a timber deck area with a gravel patio both overlooking the garden, the woodland beyond it and a spring fed pond.

Across the lane from the cottage a five bar gate and separate pedestrian gate gives access to a paddock of about 2.14 acres giving equestrian potential.
