4 bedroom Cottage located at Uplyme - Guide Price of £ 765,000
Full Description:A BEAUTIFULLY REFURBISHED DETACHED PERIOD COTTAGE WITH ATTRACTIVE CHARACTER FEATURES, GENEROUS ACCOMMODATION, EXTENSIVE GARDENS AND COUNTRY VIEWS
Rest Harrow is a substantial detached property principally built of exposed natural stone walls beneath thatched and slate roofs.
Thought to have originally been two individual workman s cottages, the property is believed to date back to around 1650. Whilst in recent years the property has been comprehensively modernised and extended, great care has been shown throughout this process in order preserve the attractive character features such as inglenook fireplaces, exposed ceiling beams and joists, crossed and braced doors and exposed stone walls. The thatch was replaced about three years ago.
A particular feature of the cottage is its bespoke oak framed conservatory which has been expertly crafted with an emphasis on early modern architecture whilst incorporating modern features such as double glazing and under floor heating.
A significant amount of detail has also gone into revitalising the extensive gardens which includes an excellent French oak decking area beneath a cedar shingle gazebo supported by oak pillars and beams. There is also a traditional Linhaye outdoor seating area and a serene lower garden with further oak decking. The plot is informally estimated at 0.3 acre.
The cottage occupies an elevated position with lovely countryside views, towards the edge of the village yet within an easy walk of local amenities.
Uplyme is a popular East Devon village with a thriving local community and a good range of facilities including a post office and general store at the petrol station, excellent village hall, primary school, public house, parish church, tennis courts, cricket and football clubs etc. The Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis is some 1.5 miles and inland at Axminster (about 5 miles) is a main line railway station.
