A very rare opportunity to purchase a fantastic family home in a rural location, yet within easy reach of the town, being just over a mile from Crediton, and benefitting from extensive gardens, and annexe potential.
Rose Cottage is a superbly presented five bedroom detached house, once forming part of the Downes Estate. The house has been extended over the years and now provides spacious and versatile accommodation with scope to create a ground floor annexe for a dependent relative, or supplementary income very easily, subject to the necessary permissions being sought. The property does still retain much of its original character, with high ceilings and large window openings, allowing a high level of natural light in, and has been sympathetically modernised.
From the front aspect, the property enjoys fantastic rural views towards the Western edge of Crediton, whilst the rear is surrounded by open farmland. Outside the gardens form a real feature of the property, extending to just under three quarters of an acre, and separated off to provide two small paddock areas, a large and productive vegetable bed, and a secluded patio close to the kitchen. An ideal opportunity for those wanting to benefit from ‘The Good Life’ style of living. There is a large double garage with electric up and over door, as well as off street parking for two or three cars.
from Crediton High Street head west, bear left after the traffic lights at the green and follow the road down the hill, at the bottom take the sharp left turn opposite Westernlea on your right. Follow this road for just under a mile, go over the railway bridge and after 500 yards turn left and the property will be found on your left hand side.
