Hole Cottages is a one of a kind property. Situated in a plot of 2.98 acres, with nearly 2.3 acres of stock fenced ground, boasting front and rear gardens, plentiful parking as well as characterful features in abundance, it really has so much to offer.
Perfectly situated tucked away from the centre of Whiddon Down, this previous old laborers cottage offers spacious accommodation and a real sense of security and privacy.
The property has a wide variety of personalities, from the period style appearance from the rear garden, to the substantial family home from the parking area to the dwarfed cottage sitting within its own ground.
Approaching the property, you travel down a concrete driveway with tall hedge rows either side for roughly 170 meters! This allows the property to be set out of sight, with amazing views of the local farmland. As you arrive in the parking area, there is space for multiple vehicles as well as a single garage made from timber, suitable for a small car or storage!
1 Hole Cottages has a terrific homely feel from the get go. The slate flooring throughout the hallways and through the kitchen into the utility area really does add to the cottage and period feel! The large kitchen / dining room offers a huge amount of space, with potential for a table and chairs or if you wish to have an island to generate more worktop space. We have labeled the middle room on the ground floor as the hobbies room, but it would make a superb dining room, reading room, home office as well as many other possibilities. The hobbies room also provides double doors that lead us into our rear garden. The living room is the perfect place to relax in the evenings in front of the large fireplace, with granite surroundings and exposed timber beams, its fits the bill of a Grade II listed cottage.
On the first floor are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom, all with their own individual identities and values. Bedroom 1 is around the back of the open and generous landing space, and big enough to currently offer a double bed, home office and space for wardrobes too! The family bathroom is next bedroom 1, with a shower over the bath tub and a window that provides huge amounts of light and has views over the front gardens and towards the 2.3 acres too. Both bedroom 2 & bedroom 3 are double bedrooms with views towards the read garden. The fourth and final bedroom is again, a double bedroom but this time with views towards the front of the property and overlooking the front gardens, but offers a beautiful exposed beam in the far right hand corner.
The front of the Hole Cottages is on two tiers, the upper tier being a concrete area that provides parking for multiple vehicles as well as joins into the 170m drive from the A3124. On the lower tier is the front garden measuring roughly 400m². This also provides access to the acreage via a five bar gate or to the current stable block to the right hand side.
The acreage itself is very well maintained and is a mixture of stock fenced paddocks, natural woodland and wildlife ponds. The two paddocks are in total 1 acre of slightly sloping ground. The remainder of the 2.3 acres is a mixture of mature wildlife, wooded areas and the benefit of two ponds. The ground is perfect for all potential buyers due to the versatility that the land itself has to offer. It fits perfectly for a couple of ponies due to the current stable block a stones through from second five bar gate. If you like to enjoy the natural environment, and watch the day go by then this is also a perfect setting for you, or if the land would act as a glorified garden for one half of the family while the other half take advantage of the more manicured garden to the read of the property. Endless potential.
The rear garden can be access via the hobbies room or from the side gate on the driveway. A perfect seating area is 4 steps away with many mature shrubs surrounding the already established garden. There is a concealed decking area which takes advantage of the sun as it circulates around the property throughout the day. The garden itself is majority laid-to-lawn on a slight gradient, with views of the neighboring farmland which normally are full of local livestock.
