A superb 4 bedroom residence with beautifully presented accommodation of great character. Located in a peaceful country position close to the village of Hawkchurch
Tom Putt Cottage is a handsome Grade II Listed property which takes its name from the 'Tom Putt' variety of apple tree planted in its garden. The property, which is attached via a garden wall, sits in a picturesque rural location and takes full advantage of the stunning countryside views. Tom Putt Cottage has been the subject of an extensive programme of restoration and extension by the current owners, which has included the addition of the slate roofed extension to the south which has created a good sized kitchen/dining room to the ground floor and beautiful vaulted principal bedroom suite to the first floor. The property has also recently been re thatched and the interior decorated with great care and attention given to the overall finish and fittings. Worthy of particular mention is the oak flooring to the sitting room, tiled floor to the kitchen/dining room complete with Oil fired Rayburn and Halogen hob and slate flooring to the family bathroom. All of this has added to the creation of the handsome and beautifully presented home we find today.
Tom Putt Cottage retains a wealth of character features which include the inglenook fireplace and window seats to the sitting room and exposed ceiling timbers to some of the rooms. Beautiful far-reaching views are gained from its principal rooms over the gardens to the countryside beyond.
Tom Putt Cottage offers a wonderful opportunity to acquire a fairly low maintenance character property situated in some of East Devon's most picturesque countryside.
