The current owners of this charming two-bedroom cottage have invested heavily in its transformation and the results are certainly impressive. When the owners originally bought the property, it had been let for many years and was in need of a good overhaul. All ceilings and walls had to be replastered, along with some essential roof and chimney maintenance before any cosmetic work began. Yet, the property had a complete facelift both inside and out, that also included a refurbishment of the kitchen and bathroom. The result is a very comfortable home styled to a show home standard.
The property is situated centrally in the pretty village of Whitford, just a mile and a half from Colyton. Inside, there is a stylish sitting room featuring a beautiful inglenook fireplace with a new wood-burning stove and exposed brickwork that combine to create a delightfully cosy environment. The separate dining room has a similar layout and design with an equally alluring appeal.
The kitchen has a cool, modern and sleek look and is fitted with high gloss units topped with smooth grey work surfaces. Natural light fills the room from the Velux windows above. The beautifully appointed bathroom is also on the ground floor. Now, this is a room that you want to spend time in! Boasting a broad range of high spec fittings, soothing lighting, electric underfloor heating and pleasing neutral tones, it's a room that drips with class and comfort.
Outside, the private front garden is a welcome suntrap being on the southerly side and has a good-sized seating area offering plenty of space for outdoor dining.
