Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A well presented four bedroom detached period cottage which has been significantly improved by the current vendors set in a stunning rural location.

This fabulous property has been a much loved home for over 11 years. In that time the current owners have made some significant improvements. These include the purchase of an extra piece of land to the side and rear of the garden increasing the plot size to 0.24 acres. Total reconfiguration of the property has taken place to enlarge the kitchen and replacing it, a downstairs WC, moving the staircase to create more room in the lounge, enlargement of the bathroom and a new bathroom suite including a bath and separate shower cubicle, new plumbing and rewiring throughout. A new oil fired boiler (May 22), new double glazed windows, and french doors, total re-decoration and new floor coverings. Outside, the garden has been landscaped and the addition of a raised deck area to take in the magnificent views.


The stone cottage which we believe was built in the 1800's also includes many period features such as flagstone flooring in the lounge, an inglenook fireplace which has a multi fuel stove put in it and there is even an original bread oven in the downstairs WC. For room layout and dimensions please refer to the attached floor plan.

Red cottage is situated in an elevated position commanding far reaching views over the Corry Valley. The location in the Blackdown Hills AONB is exceptional for such a property and although rural with delightful country walks from the front gate, it is only 4 miles to the A30/303. The pretty villages of Stockland and Dalwood are equidistant providing good facilities including an outstanding primary school, pre- school, play areas, tennis court, parish churches, a popular pub (The Tuckers Arms, Dalwood) and a community shop/post office.

The property sits in an elevated position with absolutely breath taking views from all rear rooms of the property and the outside garden.


A five bar gate from the lane takes you down one side of the cottage (used for additional parking) into an area of pasture with steps up to the main garden. This includes an area of lawn, well stocked borders with the elevated deck area for outside dining and taking in the view. Directly behind the cottage is a large patio area with access to the house, access to a coal shed which now houses the boiler and access to the side of the garage. There is also power points to the outside and water taps.


Worthy of note, at the rear of the cottage is a grate over what was the cottages water well which could be used for a secondary supply or for use on the garden. At the front of the property is a driveway leading to a single garage and there is also access to a storm porch leading to the front door.
