A very attractive, character, mid-terrace cottage situated in an idyllic country location with delightful far-reaching views. Extremely well presented and extended with 3 bedrooms, attractive gardens, car port, garage and parking.
Hillside Cottage is a delightful mid-terrace property, one in a row of four cottages, which is located on the outskirts of the lovely small hamlet of Combpyne. Lovely far-reaching views are enjoyed from its elevated location over the surrounding countryside. The property which formed part of William Peek’s Rousdon Estate dates from 1913 and as such has many character features including latch doors and stripped wooden flooring. The cottage has been sympathetically restored over the years and more recently our vendor who purchased in 2021, has further improved and updated the property. Recent works include a new roof, new septic tank, some new damp proofing, Quantum electric heaters, new patio laid at the rear and a new front door. The property further benefits from some double-glazed windows and secondary double glazing. The property is approached via the lane and steps lead up through the front garden to the front door which opens to the entrance hall. To the left, a door opens to a double aspect living room with large window to front looking out over the garden and towards the countryside views. There is a large red feature wood burner with shelving either side. The kitchen/dining room is an open plan room with wooden strip flooring flowing throughout. The kitchen has a matching range of sage green coloured base and wall units with wooden worktops with inset white enamel sink, induction hob and tiled splashbacks. In additional there is a built-in oven, space and plumbing for slimline dishwasher, washing machine and a window to the front which enjoys the lovely views. There is also a feature blue electric Aga and space for an upright fridge/freezer and fitted bench seating along one wall with shoe storage beneath. Three Velux rooflights give plenty of light to the room over the kitchen/dining area and a stable door gives access to the rear garden. An arch leads from the dining end to an understairs WC and further door to the living room. Stairs rise to the first-floor landing with doors off to three bedrooms with lovely views from Bedroom 1 and 2 and fitted wardrobes in all bedrooms with a large additional walk-in cupboard in Bedroom 1. The family bathroom with stripped wooden flooring, has a white suite with panelled bath with shower over, pedestal wash basin and WC.
Outside:The steps from the lane, lead up to the front of the cottage and gives access to the enclosed, attractive garden with balustrading and decked seating area at one end with raised beds, and a lawned garden area with pretty flower beds surrounding. A gravelled pathway and steps to one side, lead up to the front door with further pathway which runs along the front of the property (with pedestrian rights of way for this cottage and neighbouring cottages). Delightful far reaching countryside views are enjoyed from the raised vantage point of this garden. The rear courtyard is paved and gives access to a studio which measures approximately 12’ x 8’ and is currently used for storage and an office but could equally be utilised as a gym, hobbies space or store. To the rear of the studio is a further garden store. Either side of the courtyard are pedestrian gates with rights of access from the neighbouring properties. There is a covered car port at road level for one vehicle outside the property. Accessed from a driveway adjoining the neighbouring property, is a detached garage (measuring approximately 14’ x 9’) with a small parking space in front.
Services: Mains electricity and water. Septic tank drainage (shared with the neighbouring properties).
