CHULMLEIGH | £80,000


A character MID TERRACE COTTAGE situated in a quiet off road location adjoining the Churchyard but still only a short walk from the centre of Chulmleigh offering ONE BEDROOM and ONE BATHROOM accommodation with open plan Kitchen Living Room. Partially renovated but in need of some finishing work.
SITUATION Chulmleigh is a small but busy town set in the heart of rural Devon. It is the centre for an active and friendly community and offers a good range of local shops including a butcher, bakery, dairy, newsagent, florists, hairdressers etc, along with the excellent Chulmleigh Academy offering schooling from the ages of 3 to 16 years of age, health centre, dental surgery, Post Office, churches, library, two public houses and a community run Sports Centre and a short 18 hole golf course. The market town of South Molton to the north and Crediton to the south both offer a more comprehensive range of facilities and the local railway station at Eggesford, 2 miles, provides a rail link between Exeter and Barnstaple. Road link is via the A377 or the North Devon Link Road, which can easily be accessed at South Molton. Barnstaple, North Devon's regional centre, and the Cathedral and University city of Exeter both offer the wide range of shopping, amenities and facilities one would expect from the county's principal town and city. Tiverton, the M5 motorway at Junction 27 and Tiverton Parkway station, which provides a fast Intercity rail link to London Paddington, are both approximately forty-five minutes drive. There is also an international airport at Exeter.

There are excellent recreational and sporting facilities in the area with a range of Leisure Centres at South Molton, Tiverton, Crediton and Barnstaple, near-by tennis courts and clubs, local rugby, football and cricket clubs, fishing in the rivers Taw and Torridge, further near-by golf courses at Libbaton, High Bullen and Down St Mary, excellent walking and riding in all directions, racecourses at Haldon Exeter and Newton Abbot, and sailing and watersports on North Devons scenic and rugged coastline, being approximately three-quarters of an hours drive.


DESCRIPTION Ivy Cottage is a pretty mid terrace cottage situated in a quiet off-road position adjoining the churchyard a short walk from the centre of Chulmleigh. The property, of traditional stone construction under a slate roof with uPVC double glazed windows throughout, has been the subject of much improvement by the current owner including damp proofing the whole of the ground floor, re-wiring the house including making it ready for under floor heating and a lift (wiring included), and installing new 'Residence 9 uPVC' double glazing throughout including creating a new picture window at the front. All this work has been done with the correct planning permission and under architectural advisement. Ivy Cottage is now ready for a new purchaser to add their stamp to the property with some internal completion work required including installing the under floor heating, installing a new Kitchen and Bathroom, re-fitting the stairs (or lift as proposed in the plans), redecorating and re-carpeting throughout. The current accommodation briefly comprises an open-plan Kitchen/Living Room, a Bedroom and a Bathroom. (Agents Note: The property previously benefited from a spiral staircase which accessed the first floor and the roof space - which is a former loft conversion spanning the width of the cottage and being dual aspect with 2 dorma windows, allowing lots of natural light - however the staircase was removed by the current owner who planned to install a lift, so access to the first floor is currently only available by a ladder.)
