Why You'll Like It
This charming character cottage is thought to date from circa 1830 and was originally two cottages which have been later connected. The property is tucked away down a private driveway and occupies a generous garden plot with copious parking and has two useful outbuildings. There is a recently converted office / gym (PA22/08107) and a former piggery (thought also to have been the village post office at one time) which makes a great surf store / bike store. Both outbuildings have plenty of further future potential for other uses subject of course to gaining any necessary consents. The cottage itself has an abundance of character intact including beamed ceilings and pretty fireplaces. The everyday entrance is now to the rear of the cottage into a useful utility room / boot room where the oil fired boiler is located along with space and plumbing for a washing machine. There's a ground floor cloakroom / WC also. From the utility you step into a spacious playroom / snug with attractive fireplace and villager wood burner (not currently in use). The beamed ceiling and deep window reveals add bags of charm. The living / dining room also has beautiful stone fire places with three in total (one in use with a Herald wood burning stove and two decorative). The kitchen is towards the rear of the cottage with a range of cream shaker style base and wall units with solid beech block work surfaces and a 1.5 bowl stainless steel sink. There is space for a range cooker and LPG bottle gas connection along with space and plumbing for a dishwasher and space for a tall fridge / freezer. Heading upstairs the primary suite is a large double bedroom with built-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom with a shower over the bath, white WC and basin and a chrome ladder style towel rail heater. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom with shower bath and white suite. From some upstairs windows you can even glimpse the sea in the distance beyond Penhale sand dunes. Outside, the property has its own private driveway and a large relatively level enclosed garden plot. There is ample driveway parking for a number of vehicles and the garden has a large lawn, vegetable patch with beds and a sunny patio. Through an arched gateway in a pretty stone wall there is a sheltered courtyard garden where the sellers have considered installing an outdoor kitchen. There are two useful outbuildings, the surf store / bike store is a very old stone building which has been a piggery in the past and the village post office we understand. In addition there is a recently created office / gym / games room which has been built by converting the former garage (under planning reference PA22/08107. Both of these outbuildings perhaps offer further future potential for other uses subject to gaining any appropriate planning consent of course and are the ideal place to work from home.
