Property description

A charming three bedroomed traditional detached cottage enjoying a delightful edge of village position with the benefit of superb far reaching countryside views, an adjoining garage/workshop, ample private parking and lovely large gardens. EPC=E

Azes Cottage is a charming three bedroomed traditional detached cottage occupying a delightful position on the edge of the sought after village of Atherington, enjoying superb far reaching rural views over both the village and surrounding countryside.
The cottage, which comprises rendered elevations beneath a slate roof, provides accommodation of considerable charm and character benefiting from oil fired central heating and double glazing. The ground floor provides an entrance porch, a lovely living/dining room with an attractive inglenook fireplace inset with a multi-fuel stove, a large kitchen/breakfast room, a side entrance hall and cloakroom. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The property has the benefit of an attached single garage/workshop, which may afford potential for the creation of further accommodation, subject to obtaining the appropriate planning consent.
A smart brick paved entrance drive leads into a large car parking and turning area situated adjacent to the cottage. Useful fuel/log stores, a garden shed and greenhouse are situated adjacent to the parking area, with a pretty brick paved courtyard creating a summer sun trap, adjoining to the rear of the cottage. The beautiful gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property, with lawned areas flanked by well stocked flower and shrub borders and interspersed with ornamental and native tree species creating a gardeners delight.

The property enjoys a delightful and yet readily accessible position, situated on the edge of the pretty village of Atherington, enjoying far reaching views over glorious North Devon countryside towards the distant hills of Exmoor. Atherington provides a post office, village shop and ancient parish church, with primary schooling and further local facilities available at nearby High Bickington and Umberleigh. Umberleigh also has a station on the Tarka Line with a regular sprinter train service to Barnstaple and Exeter.
The bustling North Devon market town of South Molton provides a good range of local services, including shops, banks, recreational facilities, primary and secondary schooling, whilst the larger centre of Barnstaple affords a more extensive range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities befitting those of an important regional and administrative centre. To the north east the Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery and the stunning North Devon coastline has popular sandy beaches at Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe.
From South Molton and Barnstaple the A361 North Devon Link Road provides easy access to Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27) with mainline Intercity rail links available at Tiverton Parkway (London, Paddington approx. 2 hours) and international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

The property is approached from a council road via a smart brick paved private entrance drive providing access to the Single Garage with up and over garage door, concrete floor, power and light connected. The drive continues through a timber gateway to a large brick paved car parking and turning area with a circular raised flower bed.
The side entrance door leads out to a covered walkway to an open fronted bulk oil tank Store and further Log/Coal Store with block bunkers. The covered walkway also provides access to a very pretty enclosed rear courtyard area with raised borders containing a variety of flowers and shrubs. Useful Store Cupboard.
On one side of the car parking area is a raised border, well stocked with a variety of ornamental and flowering shrubs, adjacent to which is situated a timber and felt roofed Garden Shed 11'7" x 7'6" (3.52m x 2.29m). A pedestrian access leads through to a paved walkway with an aluminium framed Greenhouse approx. 12'3" x 8'4" (3.73m x 2.53m) with power connected. Adjoining the greenhouse is a Patio/Sitting Out Area overlooking the beautiful well stocked gardens.
The gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property enjoying superb countryside views towards the distant hills of Exmoor and are laid mainly to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders interspersed with ornamental and native tree species, and containing a timber framed and wire Fruit Cage approx. 16'5" x 12'10" (5m x 3.9m). A lovely walk can be experienced down through the gardens which run adjacent to the road, with a thick hedge providing a good degree of privacy. Ornamental Pond with raised stone borders.
