A picture postcard detached cottage in the heart of the village with beautifully presented accommodation of great character and a stunning contemporary kitchen.
Palmers Cottage is a particularly attractive detached cottage which has origins dating back to the late 18th century and is of traditional construction with colourwashed stone elevations under a principally thatched roof. It retains a wealth of character features, hence it is Listed as Grade II. The accommodation has, in more recent years, been the subject of a comprehensive programme of improvement and enlargement, which has included the installation of a stunning vaulted contemporary kitchen, superb family bathroom, as well as a thorough programme of decoration. It is found in beautiful order with great care and attention having been given to the fittings and finish, which is light, neutral and works particularly well in a cottage of this type. Period features include beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, window seats and fireplaces to the reception rooms.
Palmers Cottage benefits from three bedrooms to the first floor which are accessed via two staircases, and the principal bedroom is a beautiful double aspect room which benefits from its own staircase.
Gardens & Grounds.
Palmers Cottage is approached from the village lane over a gravelled area which provides parking for four vehicles. A canopied entrance leads through to the gardens which lie principally to the front and side of the cottage and are laid to lawn with borders containing a variety of well-established plants and shrubs.
There is a gravelled terrace and summerhouse, whilst to the side of the property there is a further area of lawn and a second summerhouse.
Palmers Cottage sits in the heart of the picturesque community village of Dalwood which in turn is located in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amongst some of East Devon's most attractive rolling countryside. The village offers a range of amenities including the popular Tuckers Arms public house (only a short walk away), ancient Church of St Peter's, village hall and community run shop and post office.
Dalwood lies approximately midway between the market towns of Honiton and Axminster. Both towns offer a wide range of amenities such as schools, banks, supermarkets and sporting facilities, as well as many independent shops and galleries. They both also have main line rail links to London (Waterloo).
The beautiful World Heritage Jurassic Coastline at Lyme Bay is a short drive away, with the town of Lyme Regis being about 9 miles distant. Lyme Regis has a famous harbour including The Cobb and a very good range of independent shops and eateries which include The Oyster and Fish House, owned by the well respected chef Mark Hix.
The renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top mixed state schools, is situated about 7 miles south of the property. The Cathedral City of Exeter is about 25 miles to the west with excellent shopping facilities, main line rail link to London (Paddington), M5 access and international airport.
