A charming period cottage in need of modernisation with a range of outbuildings and gardens and grounds of about 2.25 acres.

Wakleys is a detached, Grade II Listed cottage which possibly dates back to the late 18th century, and is of traditional construction with flintstone elevations under a thatched roof.

It is positioned on a country lane within its gardens and grounds of about 2.25 acres, with views over stunning countryside.

Although the cottage needs, some updating it retains a number of character features, which include ceiling beams and an inglenook fireplace to the sitting room.

This property package offers the perfect opportunity to those looking to put their stamp on a very handsome country set up.

The property includes an entrance porch, hallway, lounge, dining kitchen, conservatory and shower room on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor

Wakleys is situated in a sheltered sunny and nicely tucked away location about 2.5 miles from the small country village of Cotleigh and has direct access to some of East Devon's most glorious lanes and countryside. Cotleigh is located approximately 6 miles east of the market town of Honiton with its selection of shops, main line rail link to London (Waterloo) and sports facilities.

Sidmouth, East Devon's premier coastal resort and the "Jurassic" Coast is some 15 miles to the south-west. The county town, Exeter, lies some 25 miles to the west with its cathedral, excellent shopping facilities, M5 access, international airport and main line express rail link to London Paddington.

One of Wakleys main features is its amazing setting, which has a model lay out with its gardens, land and courtyard of buildings. It is approached from the lane over a cattle grid and through a 5-bar gate onto a granite set driveway which provides parking for several vehicles. Adjacent to this is a detached timber outbuilding providing garaging and workshops. To the other side of the driveway is an attractive stone and tiled barn which provides stabling and storage.

The gardens lie principally to the rear and side of the cottage and have been well planted over the years. There are areas of lawn interspersed with shrub beds and a pond.

To the west of the cottage is a paddock whilst to the south is a larger field which runs down to a copse. In total the gardens and land extend to approximately 2.24 acres.
