Property Description

Additional Information

Beautifully nestled in an ancient wooded enclave known as Owlacombe Valley or valley of the owls and listed in the Domesday book is this fully restored and extended millers cottage. Dating from the seventeenth century this exclusive home offers the perfect blend of modern contemporary living with all the benefits and welcoming features of a period home.

You approach the home at the end of a wooded lane where it and one other dwelling exclusively enjoy this secluded position. Owlacombe cottage sits in around half an acre of predominately lawned gardens with a wooded bank to one side complete with a stone built outbuilding offering further storage or potential to develop into something like a home office. The other side of the gardens is a recessed stream, the sound of which will help you further unwind and enjoy the surroundings even more. Views of the adjoining countryside are evident from all parts of the garden, you will often catch a glimpse of grazing cattle from time to time.

The house itself is by no means over shadowed by the position and has been sympathetically restored and renovated to a very high standard. You will find yourself immediately falling in love as you enter the house into the farmhouse kitchen, a wonderful space to entertain friends and family especially as you can overspill through the two sets of French doors onto the garden terrace. An all in one open plan living space occupies most of the rest of the ground floor and whilst vast provides a real cosy feel, especially with the log burning stove at the living end. If that doesn’t make you feel cosy enough you could even flick on the under floor heating to keep your toes nice and toasty on the beautiful and practical flag stone flooring. A handy wash / utility room with adjoining cloakroom then completes the ground floor. Moving upstairs the wow's keep on coming. Particularly impressive is the bathroom with its four piece white suite including a claw foot, role edged bath and separate shower. There is a lovely light and airy "L" shaped landing providing views over the garden and access to four double bedrooms the master of which boasts an ensuite shower room.

Moving back outside there is ample off road parking and double car port with ev points. Through the five bar gate is further parking that leads to an oak built storage shed. All in all, this is one of those dream homes that you promise yourself you will own one day (a bit like the present owners). Whatever you do, don’t procrastinate as I am sure you will not be the only people that will be chasing this stunning home.

The vendor informs us that the property is predominately of stone and cob construction under a slate roof, although the more recent extension is of block and render. Your surveyor or conveyancer may be able to clarify further following their investigations. The property is serviced by oil fired central heating powering both radiators and under floor heating. Other forms of heating include a multi fuel burning stove in the living room. The water is supplied by a bore hole whilst the drainage goes to a modern water treatment plant.

Broadband: Standard speeds available up to 4 mbps although the vendors are connected to the star link satellite system which provides much faster speeds (Information taken from Ofcom checker)
