With origins stretching back centuries, this charming detached cottage is set in the heart of the Blackdown Hills region of outstanding natural beauty and, as you would expect from such a location, offers unobstructed panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
The cottage is less than two miles from the popular village of Churchinford and Honiton is approximately eight miles. The property began life as two chalets before being converted into a single dwelling in the mid-1900s.
Yet Windmill Cottage has retained a wealth of period charm and original features can be seen throughout. Traditional features include beamed ceilings, window seating, exposed stone walls and two impressive inglenooks, one with a stunning Dovre wood-burning fireplace and the other with a wood-burning stove.
On the ground floor there are two well proportioned reception rooms divided by a good sized kitchen / diner, and a practical office making working from home a feasible option. Upstairs there are three bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and a family bathroom.
Outside there is a picturesque and perfect garden which has been beautifully landscaped to blend in with the natural surroundings.
Abundantly filled with colorful plants, well-established shrubs and trees, including a magnificent magnolia and fruit trees. The garden also has a “hidden” gravelled seating area which offers a splendid view.
The property and the garden are protected from the road by a high flint wall allowing complete privacy.
