Situated in the RURAL Devonshire village of Iddesleigh, is this SPACIOUS TRIPLE FRONTED Grade II listed, THATCHED COTTAGE. The property REQUIRES COMPLETE RENOVATION throughout and gives any perspective purchaser the opportunity to really make it their own. Although in need of work, the thatch roof was redone in 2016. The property offers spacious and versatile accommodation, with two entrances and staircases, the garage could be converted and incorporated and the property split into two cottages. This has the potential to create a three bedroom cottage and a further one bedroom cottage or ancillary accommodation, subject to necessary planning permissions and listed building consent. Or the property could be kept as one and would make a delightful family home. The current accommodation comprises a living room, dining room, snug, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor. On the first floor, accessed via the staircase in the kitchen are three double bedrooms. The second staircase from the snug leads to another double bedroom. Outside there a 22 ft. long attached garage, a further outside toilet and store room and the rear courtyard garden offers a good degree of privacy and has an attractive stone retaining wall and a thriving apple tree.


SITUATION:

Situated within the sought after Devonshire unspoiled village of Iddesleigh with its famous pub, The Duke of York as well as it connections with the Parson Jack Russell. The property is in the heart of 'War Horse' country made famous by local author Michael Morpurgo and benefits from having easy access to the nearby former market town of Hatherleigh that offers a traditional range of local amenities including county primary school, doctor's surgery, range of public houses, newsagents/post office and supermarket. The nearby town of Okehampton is about 20 minutes’ drive away offering several supermarkets, a bank as well as many interesting locally owned shops. Primary and secondary education is well catered for in local schools. By the town's park is a leisure centre with an indoor heated swimming pool. Most sports are available including 18 hole golf course, squash courts and thriving rugby and football clubs. At Okehampton you are able to join the A30 for an easy commute to Exeter or into Cornwall or to join the M5 motorway.
