Property description

An absolutely splendid Character Cottage with a whole host of authentic period features offering spacious 4 Bedroom and 3 Reception Room Accommodation, potential for dual occupation and featuring beautifully kept lawned Gardens with stream bordered orchard and walled rose Garden.

The property is located within Old School lane, a conservation area in the heart of the sought after village of Fremington. Traditionally constructed of local stone and cob, the property has a natural slate and part thatched roof and is being offered for sale for the first time in 40 years. The present owner has retained many original features and in fact discovered the previously hidden Inglenook fireplace which with its bread oven, beam and gas fired wood burner is now a central feature of this lovely character home.

The extended accommodation currently provides 4 Bedrooms with En Suite and Family Bathrooms, 3 large Reception Rooms, Study, Utility Room and Conservatory. It would easily lend itself to dual occupation as there are two staircases and the accommodation is capable of providing a Semi Separate Annexe perfect for those with older children waiting to fly the nest or Granny Annexe.

An internal inspection will reveal an extensive range of impressive period features including the many old planked doors with original ironmongery exposed beams and roof trusses with pegged joints. There are also some fine Yorkshire casement windows and window seats.

Externally the large Rear Garden is another undoubted feature beautifully kept and landscaped with an expanse of lawn, patios and honeysuckle clad arbour with door leading down to tucked away stream bordered orchard. 16ft Greenhouse, large walled rose Garden & pergola.

Fremington is an increasingly popular village located just 4 miles from Barnstaple, North Devon’s regional shopping and employment centre. The village as an excellent range of local facilities including a post office and store, hairdressers and some local pubs and restaurants. There is a medical centre and bowling green and easy access to the Tarka Trail with its fabulous estuary walks and cycle path.
