The hamlet of Furley, within the Yarty Valley, is amongst the beautiful East Devon countryside, designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Being close to the Devon, Dorset and Somerset borders the property is conveniently situated for a number of pretty unspoilt villages, including the small village of Membury about 1.1 miles away with its Church and primary school academy. The market towns of Axminster and Honiton offer good day to day amenities including main line railway stations on the Exeter to London Waterloo line.

Exeter to the west and Taunton to the north both provide a comprehensive array of retail and leisure facilities and access to the M5. Exeter International Airport offers a number of domestic and international flights. The beautiful Jurassic Coast is within an easy drive and includes the popular towns and villages of Sidmouth, Branscombe, Beer and Lyme Regis.


Martins is a quintessential thatched Grade II Listed cottage enjoying a beautiful country setting appreciating a glorious outlook over the gardens and grounds and surrounding unspoilt farmland. The original cottage has been sympathetically extended to provide spacious accommodation with all the rooms having their individual character.


A stable door leads into the kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of wall and floor units, red LPG AGA set within a reclaimed brick inglenook fireplace and a reclaimed flag stone floor which continues into an inner lobby. From here steps lead up to the dining room with a terracotta tiled floor, exposed beams and a wide opening into a pretty octagonal garden room with French doors leading to the garden. The attractive sitting room has a heavily beamed ceiling and an impressive inglenook fireplace housing the wood burning stove. A further door leads into a side lobby with a front door to the house and a door leading into a store, originally a cloakroom (plumbing still in situ).

To the first floor are three double bedrooms, all of which have fitted/built in wardrobes and a modern family bathroom with separate shower cubicle and extensive tiling. There is also an en suite shower room incorporated within the principal bedroom.


The gravelled parking area gives access to the detached double garage which has an electronically operated up and over door, loft storage space, utility area and a useful office/studio. A planted terrace extends across the front of the property with steps leading to a pond. There are areas of gently sloping lawn surrounded by well stocked shrub beds. The paddock adjoins the garden and is accessed by a pedestrian gate and a separate access approached from the adjoining lane. In total the property extends to 1.8 acres.
