Cott Lane, Croyde, Braunton
Wonderful character home believed to have been one of the village's original farmhouses (Cott Farm) and more recently has been run as a B&B together with an annexe.
Believed to have dated back to the early 19th Century this charming home has been in the same ownership for nearly 23 years and now offers the opportunity for someone to make it their home.
Being both close to the coast and countryside this will appeal to those who enjoy the outdoors and those keen gardeners as the garden is a true delight.
There are two entrances as the vendors recently let the left side of the property out as an annexe and this side comprises of entrance lobby with door on the left to a WC, in front of you is the utility which flows through to the kitchen and from the kitchen a door leads through to the bedroom and bathroom.
A door on the right hand side of the entrance lobby also leads through to the formal entrance hall with turned staircase to the first floor.
The main house has an appealing stone porch with door leading to the atrium which is a fascinating room a real surprise and is a very good sized room with tiled flooring and raised stone feature which houses a large cheese plant, this room also has 2 electronically operated Velux windows. A door on the left of the atrium leads through to the living/dining room, again a good sized room with log burning stove inset into the wall with a vent into the atrium to provide additional heat during those winter months.
Beyond the living room you reach the formal entrance hall which in turn leads through to the annexe.
Opposite the front door (in the atrium) a door leads through to the modern kitchen which is fitted with a range of wall and base Magnet kitchen units and integrated fridge, built-in double oven and warming drawer. On the left of the kitchen is the office with door through to the annexe bedroom and door to the garden.
A door to the right of the atrium leads through to the attached double garage which has a pitched roof and remote controlled electronic door so that you can drive straight in, there is power and light available in the garage and plenty of eaves storage.
An additional door to the rear of the atrium leads through to a utility, shower room and to the ground floor bedroom which has French Doors onto the garden so you can watch the birds from your bed!
Moving to the first floor, the lovely wood turned staircase leads from the formal entrance hall to the landing. On the far left is the family bathroom and in front of you is a bedroom with en-suite shower room, there are 2 additional generous double bedrooms and a single bedroom on this level, along with the airing cupboard where you will find the Worcester boiler which was installed circa October 2017.
Outside there is a cobbled area to the front and parking to both sides of the property. There are gates on both sides leading to the attractive and generous garden which is mainly laid to lawn with many flower and shrub borders, ornamental pond with water lilies, summerhouse with power and light, greenhouse, fruit trees including fig and damson as well as eating and cooking apples. There are many different areas to the garden and would be a great place for the growing family or those who love their garden. The garden offers a good degree of privacy and is planted with so many interesting and colourful flowers and plants.
In all this is a wonderful home which has been looked after and has the scope to add your own stamp. Both the accommodation and garden are sizeable and it would make a perfect family home or indeed for those looking for their coastal retreat with a country feel.
Cott Lane is a no through road which has access onto a scenic walk and is also perfectly placed to walk to both the village and beach.
