A very appealing and well presented 3 bedroom, 3 reception room village cottage occupying a delightful position in the old part of the village which is full of character and with the benefit of a modest easy to keep, private courtyard style garden and a large single garage with workshop/store plus parking for 2 cars. Spacious, interesting cottages like this very rarely come for sale in Kennford and so early inspection is very much recommended. Note: There is no chain with this cottage and so early possession can be given if required.

Delightful period cottages like this rarely very come to the market, this particular one hasn't been for sale for over 15 years! Very nicely presented and with good sized period accommodation. This property and its lovely enclosed private courtyard garden is an absolute delight. The site too is great, you won't find too many like this being tucked away and with lovely outlooks from upstairs, particularly ones where you can walk to the shop and be back in just a few minutes! and be out on the fast road to Exeter and Plymouth in a couple of minutes!

The property is situated in a tucked away position close to the centre of the delightful village of Kennford, a short distance from the Haldon Hills and close to the Devon Expressway which provides easy access to the M5. The village has several important amenities including village store and post office, pub, primary school, petrol station and the beautiful church of St. Andrews, a short distance away, in Kenn. The nearby Haldon Forest offers 3,500 acres of woodland with beautiful walking, cycling and horse riding trails as well as the impressive sensory trail at Mamhead designed to stimulate the senses of visitors of all abilities. Kennford lies about 4 miles from the centre of the university and cathedral city of Exeter which boasts a wide range of shopping, amenities and schooling as would be expected of a city of its importance. There are good rail communications to Paddington and Waterloo as well as an international airport with daily flights to London.

This is a fantastic and extremely rare opportunity to purchase a delightful village cottage in Kennford which has been lovingly look after and still has more scope . The property is full of charm and character with numerous features all of which have been skillfully blended with a modern living style. Of particular note is the lovely kitchen with marble tops and the Aga in the breakfast area which provides a lovely background heat for the whole house and from where a pretty staircase rises to the first floor bedroom accommodation.

The accommodation flows beautifully straight from the front door which leads into a lovely sitting room which has double doors out to the patio and garden and then easy stairs down to a small inner hall from where there is access to Snug and then on to the excellent kitchen/breakfast room. From the kitchen breakfast room there is an access way leading to the excellent conservatory a utility room area and a ground floor WC as well as a pretty staircase leading upstairs to the bedroom accommodation. There are 3 bedrooms altogether, two of which are excellent double rooms and the third a good single. The master bedroom has a pretty en-suite shower room and there is an additional small separate shower room too. Both bedrooms two and three also enjoy lovely open country and neighbouring garden outlooks.

It is not just the internal features that set the scene for this delightful cottage as outside, the very private, enclosed courtyard style garden area is also an absolute delight and a wonderful place to relax and potter. Unusual for older village cottages this property also has an excellent larger than average garage which has an electric door plus parking for 2 vehicles! Attached to the rear of the garage there is a good store/workshop and at the side a gate leads to an area where there is an oil storage tank.
