Property Description

Additional Information

Where do I begin with this fantastic property located in the beautiful coastal village of Bucks Mills? Perhaps the location is a good place to start. Bucks Mills is a small and quaint village leading directly to the cliff face with tranquil views over Bideford Bay and Lundy Island. St. Anns Cottage is pleasantly and conveniently positioned half way up the village hill which is just a short distance from the village hub offering fantastic views and scenic walks and a short walk from the local shop which is positioned at the top of the village. This ideal location also leaves the property with no immediate neighbours, giving it a feeling of seclusion and privacy.

As you stand outside the property for the first time it would be near-impossible to imagine a more picturesque, quaint and fitting cottage embedded into the North Devon hillside. The property is surrounded by pretty forestry which is owned by the Woodland Trust giving some peace of mind that this natural surrounding will not change. There is a small stream which trickles alongside the property, not only giving visual appeal but also creating a calming feel from the very offset. The cottage sits on approximately two thirds of an acre plot and has to be one of the finest examples of an English wild flower garden the area has to offer. There are far too many flowers on display to list them all but to name just a few; rhododendrons, bluebells, hydrangeas, foxgloves, primroses and daffodils. The property has its very own nature trail that leads through the gardens from where the wildlife that habitats it can be observed. This trail does not only provide a vantage point over the property but also a good source of exercise for a morning stroll.

In addition to the wild gardens, there are two sizeable lawned areas with a number of feature cherry trees as well as a large patio directly from the property. These areas provide a great space to unwind and relax with a glass of wine in the evening or the perfect place to host summer barbecues and gatherings. The gardens enjoy most of the day's sun and it is difficult to express into words how peaceful and relaxing it is when sat at the patio table with the sun shining down as you take in the beautiful setting. At the far end of the garden there is plenty of parking as well as a Single Garage.

Moving onto the cottage itself, it somehow encompasses a warm, cosy feeling yet provides spacious living accommodation. The Kitchen has a separate Utility Room and enjoys a view of the garden – perfect when doing the dishes. The Lounge takes centre stage of the property being a large, light and airy room with an impressive inglenook fireplace and having ample space for both lounge and dining furniture. The Conservatory is accessed via the Lounge and has a fishbowl effect as you observe the panoramic views of the neighbouring hills and woods. This is a great space to enjoy the outside beauty even on the rainiest of days. There is even a small Office located on the Ground Floor - perfect for those who now work from home. On the First Floor are two spacious double Bedrooms, a further single Bedroom and a recently installed Shower Room.

Another thing to note is the Outbuilding which is currently used as an Art Studio. This additional space is an asset to the property and could be perfect for running a small business out of or other potential investments such as AirBnB. Due to the size of the plot, additional extensions or expansions are perfectly doable (subject to the necessary planning permissions.
