1920 character cottage will take your fancy
A charming character property in about two acres of ground, and within easy reach of Modbury and only a short distance from Wonwell beach, is sure to take your fancy.
The detached Fancy Cottage, built around 1920, was formerly a pair of semis. The owners undertook a substantial renovation and improvement programme and in 2000 a significant extension was added creating a five-bedroom family home.
A sunny aspect adds to the appeal of the property. The accommodation includes a kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, snug/study, utility room, workshop/boiler room, cloakroom and bathroom.
There is a parking for up to seven vehicles and a double garage. Dual aspect with patio doors leading to the garden, this bespoke kitchen has a comprehensive range of cupboards, mainly with granite worktops. and an oil-fired three-oven Aga.
There is plenty of space for a dining table although the dining room (which is being used as a snug/study) is not a room to leave just for special occasions. The spacious lounge is full of natural sunlight and has an attractive fireplace.
On the first floor, a galleried landing with oak balustrades leads to the dual-aspect master bedroom. There is an en-suite bathroom with exposed oak floorboards. A further four bedrooms with a family bathroom completes the first floor.
At the rear is a well-maintained private garden predominantly laid to lawn with blossoming flowers and shrub borders. The garden leads to the paddock which is about one acre. The remainder of the garden includes a small woodland, vegetable garden, and double garage.
