  • Bedrooms: 4
An elegant detached 3/4 bedroom period home with many fine original features in an attractive, quiet village setting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Pinewood Cottage is of traditional flint and stone construction with a pitched tiled roof, originally a pair of semi detached cottages which became one house in the early 1990s. The accommodation is well planned and proportioned and offers a versatile living opportunity with two lovely reception rooms, both with impressive traditional inglenook fireplaces, a large study room which could make a ground floor bedroom, separate office, utility and a magnificent kitchen breakfast room extension. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room was added in recent years and has been beautifully appointed with custom built oak units in a French style with solid oak worktops, complemented by lovely limestone effect flooring. There is plenty of natural light, with a vaulted ceiling fitted with three conservation Velux windows and being dual aspect with French doors connecting to a Mediterranean style courtyard. There are integrated appliances including a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a modern two oven electric Aga running on economy 7 electricity. The first floor accommodation offers a principal suite separate from the rest of the house, accessed via an independent staircase with a large dressing room and en-suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, family bathroom and WC accessed via a separate staircase.

This lovely home has been much improved by the current owner including double glazed hardwood windows and the addition of PV panels and immersun system giving a buyer free hot water and very low to neutral heating and electric costs.

Pinewood Cottage is situated in a peaceful setting on a quiet countryside lane, in this popular East Devon village, 2 miles from the market town of Honiton. From Cotleigh there is easy access onto the A35 which leads East towards Dorchester and West to Honiton where there is access onto the A30 dual carriageway, which in turn leads to the cathedral and university city of Exeter.

Honiton provides a useful range of shopping facilities including supermarkets, specialist independent shops and primary and secondary schooling. From Honiton and the nearby town of Axminster are train stations on the Waterloo line.

Exeter & Taunton offer the majority of leading department stores expected of a county capital, hospitals and an excellent range of cultural opportunities together with state and private education. A short distance to the east of Exeter is an international airport.

The beautiful East Devon Coast is easily reached and offers wonderful recreational opportunities with walking on the coastal path and sailing clubs at Axmouth and Beer.

Outside, the gardens are a feature of Pinewood Cottage, with a beautifully paved courtyard lying to the South East of the house, finished in attractive Indian stone. A fence divides the courtyard from a gravelled parking space with space for two/three vehicles. Pathways extend around the front and rear of the house, with lawned gardens bounded by flower bed borders and stone boundary wall against the lane. A mature Wisteria has been trained across the front elevation. Lying to the west are formal gardens, laid to lawn in the main, with a mature eucalyptus and divided from the lane by a stone boundary wall. There is a further patio area of Indian stone paving alongside which is an attractive covered seating area. On the opposite side of the lane and to the east of Pinewood is a further, grassed, parking bay with space for 2/3 vehicles.
