Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6
A delightful rural property package including a 4 bedroom detached cottage, a 2 bedroom detached holiday cottage/ granny annexe, all set in 0.4 acres and benefitting from stunning rural views.

This much loved home has been in the same ownership for over 20 years. The main house has been much improved in that time, which included the conversion of an existing outbuilding to create a very well presented 2 bedroom detached annexe. This was originally done to home an elderly relative but in recent years, the cottage has been used as a holiday cottage, which provides extra income to the household.

Crislands Cottage

The main house, which originally dates back, a couple of hundred years, has been extended over time creating a generous family home. This includes on the ground floor a large entrance hallway with stairs off to the first floor and doors off to:

Lounge, with triple aspect windows, patio doors outside and a freestanding wood burning stove.

Kitchen/ Breakfast room. A truly great space with dual aspect windows, room in the centre for a large kitchen table, wall and base units with work surfaces over, double sink and drainer with mixer tap over, oil fired Rayburn, fitted oven, hob, extractor fan and plumbing for a dishwasher.

Utility Room, housing the water filters, a Belfast sink, plumbing for the washing machine, floor mounted oil fired central heating boiler and door outside.

Study. A useful space that could also been used as dining room or extra bedroom.

Downstairs cloakroom, with WC and wash hand basin.

On the first floor a landing with a large cupboard, has doors off to a second inner landing and doors to:

Master bedroom. This generous room benefits from dual aspect windows taking in the amazing views and a door to a well presented en-suite shower room.

Family bathroom, which includes a shower cubicle with shower over, WC and Bidet , inset a vanity unit, bath and wash hand basin.

The inner landing has doors off to three further double bedrooms, which all benefit from views and two bedrooms include fitted wardrobes.

The main house further benefits from oil fired central heating with radiators throughout and double glazed windows and external doors.

Crislands Wendy House

Originally created as an annexe for an elderly relative, this dwelling also has permission as a holiday cottage, which it has been for some time. This provides a decent extra income.

The extremely well presented accommodation includes on the ground floor an entrance porch with stairs off to the first floor, two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

On the first floor there is an open plan lounge/diner with triple aspect windows, taking in the wonderful views, a wood burning stove and access to a fully fitted kitchen.

Attached to the outside of the building is The Boiler House, which also contains the water filter system and the oil fired central heating boiler.

This property also benefits from oil fired central heating with radiators throughout and double glazed windows.

The property occupies a delightful rural position lying within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a predominantly agricultural landscape primarily comprising pasture and arable land interspersed with an abundance of woodland.

The village of Yarcombe affords a thriving local community and home to a parish church, village hall and a pub.

The town of Honiton offers a good range of everyday shopping and banking facilities whilst the larger centre of Taunton lies approximately 13 miles distant affording an extensive range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities befitting those of important regional and administrative centre, together with a wide range of primary, secondary and further education facilities include three noted public schools.

Despite its rural position the property enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and further afield with access to the M5 motorway available at Taunton (J25). Main line rail services are also available at Honiton (London Waterloo) and Taunton (London Paddington).

Access to the A30/303 trunk route at Devonshire Inn provides an easy link to London and the South East, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

To the south lies the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, with pretty coastal towns and villages such as Lyme Regis, Seaton, Sidmouth, Branscombe and Beer.

Both properties are set within a beautifully presented plot of about 0.4 acres. The properties are approached via a double 5 bar gate with gravel driveway leading to a central parking area between the two properties. Down the side of the main house there is access to a large timber garage with work shop, a stone wood store a shed and a dog kennel with a fenced run.

There are areas of lawn, with tree and shrub borders. In front of Crislands Wendy house there is a large patio area with steps down to the main lawn area. There is a pond, two timber sheds and a greenhouse.

All around the outside space are some quite incredible rural views that further add to the charm of this delightful package.
