Property description

Cherry Cottage is tucked away yet conveniently situated close to the heart of this prestigious woodland village with all its excellent amenities within walking distance, including the convenience store/Post Office and the highly regarded primary school. The A30 dual carriageway is within easy reach providing swift access to the Cathedral City of Exeter, M5 and the coast, meaning commuting is a viable option from this idyllic setting. The Colyton grammar school and the renowned King's School are both in catchment which is another appealing feature of this handsome family home.

The property itself has been thoughtfully extended and modernised in recent years creating a 'ready to move into' home. The light and airy and equally well-proportioned accommodation comprises reception hall with cloakroom WC and a ground floor bedroom which is such a size that it creates a versatile room for an office, playroom, etc. The kitchen/breakfast room is certainly the heart of the home being comprehensively fitted with an extensive range of cream-fronted cupboards and drawers, both at base and eye-level, with integrated quality appliances and a central workstation/breakfast bar. There is plenty of room for food preparation allowing families to cook, dine and socialise together. This is a wonderful multi-aspect room with French doors leading through to a dining room for more formal occasions. The sitting room is another lovely room with feature focal fireplace and a utility room offers additional storage and appliance space.

On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms with the master benefitting from an en-suite facility. The family bathroom and en-suite are both fitted with stylish white suites and most of the rooms boast built-in wardrobes. The cottage also benefits from a modern gas central heating system and extensive PVCu double glazing, creating an efficient home to run.

The property is approached via a substantial gravel driveway leading to a large parking area providing plenty of off-road parking for several vehicles and access to a large car port and a double garage with light and power. An attractive paved pathway leads through to the delightful gardens and grounds creating a fine first impression. There is a large expanse of lawn providing plenty of room for children to run and play whilst being bordered by deep, well-established flowerbeds bursting with a variety of mature specimen plants, shrubs and trees creating an interesting range of colour throughout the year.

To the side of the property is a large feature garden pond and a secret garden with fruit trees as well as a greenhouse which will please any keen gardener. There is a large shed/workshop and there are several paved patio areas providing plenty of room to enjoy outdoor dining/entertaining in an excellent degree of privacy.

Area West Hill is an appealing and individual village with a mini-supermarket at its heart which is open long hours and includes a post office. There is also a pretty church, high achieving modern primary school, village hall, garage, hairdresser, dentist and bus services. The town of Ottery St Mary is about 2 miles away with the well-known Kings School, medical centre, Sainsbury's supermarket and other shops/amenities. Exeter and the M5 (about 8 miles) is easily reached along the A30 dual carriageway. Honiton with station (Waterloo-Exeter) is about 8 miles and the coast at Sidmouth about 6 miles.
