A great opportunity to purchase this 2 bedroom end terrace cottage in popular Kennford which comes to the market for the first time in approximately 90 years with enormous potential for restoration and complete modernisation. The cottage has a good sized level garden and the excellent bonus of a garage too. This is a cottage with fantastic scope to create a lovely village home of character with plenty of room to extend (STPP)
The property is situated in a great 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.
The cottage is easy to find being the last cottage on the main street just before the village school on the left.
This is a very rare opportunity to buy a cottage which is full of character and believed to have originally been the old Village Forge over a hundred years ago but altered to form an interesting dwelling. Having been in the same family ownership for over 90 years, the cottage is now in need of complete restoration and modernisation but the potential for the creation of a delightful village cottage is enormous. The accommodation includes 2 good sized reception rooms and a long kitchen on the ground floor as well as a rear hallway with store cupboards and a separate w.c. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a small bathroom. Outside the cottage stands on a good sized triangular level site which provides enough space for a potential extension to the cottage at the side or rear (STPP) and in addition there are two old timber store sheds and most importantly there is a detached garage too. Although this cottage does need updating and restoration, the scope it tremendous.
