Oldborough Cottage is an absolutely charming Grade II listed semi detached cottage located in the hamlet of OIldborough, just outside Morchard Bishop.
The cottage is offered in superb condition throughout, having been totally renovated, and rethatched in 2015, but still retaining many of its original character features. The thatched porch leads into the living room, with a dual aspect, inglenook fireplace and exposed ceiling beams. The kitchen is a spacious and sociable room, with an oil fired Rayburn providing heating and hot water, and plenty of work surfaces. Upstairs are three bedrooms, and a white bathroom suite with shower above.
Outside the property is approached from a quiet country lane to a stone chipped driveway via double wooden gates, which leads to a spacious detached garage. The garage itself is sizeable and provides scope to convert (subject to the necessary consents) into a home office, gym or studio.
The gardens in all extend to approximately 1/3 acre, with a range of planting, pathways and separate ‘rooms’, making a real gardeners delight and a fantastic space to explore. There is a well, currently covered over with a circular patio, a pond with an abundance of water planting, a productive vegetable garden, and a range of lawns linked with shingle pathways. Patio and seating areas have been put in to capture different areas of the garden, as well as the beautiful countryside views that look towards the village of Morchard Bishop.
Oldborough Cottage really is a fantastic example of a property of this age, and a delight to explore and we would wholeheartedly recommend a viewing to truly appreciate what is on offer.
