A detached beautifully presented refurbished village cottage with stylish accommodation.
Little Tencery started life a small detached cottage but has recently been the subject of extensive redesign, improvement and enlargement. This work has resulted in creating the most appealing home of charm and character we find today. The improvements have been carried out with an eye to detail and the property offers style and a high quality finish.
The accommodation is adaptable in its layout there being a study on the ground floor and a wet room, giving the property a great deal of flexibility. The large country kitchen is comprehensively fitted and equipped with a Range, dishwasher and 2 built in fridges. The utility room has plumbing and space for a washing machine, a vented dryer and freezer.
Little Tencery is traditionally built with rendered and colourwashed exterior elevations under a slated roof, and has the benefit of handmade wooden double glazed windows throughout.
Further points worth mentioning are the log burner, slate floor in the kitchen/dining room which has underfloor heating, as does the living room with its freestanding log burner, study and wet room, hand made oak doors and many other small details which sets Little Tencery above other properties, and creates a lovely ambience as well as being beautifully presented both inside and out.
Little Tencery is situated in the heart of the village of Dunkeswell in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The old established village of Dunkeswell, a designated Conservation Area, has a pretty parish church and there is a shop as well as several other amenities in the nearby 'new' village. There is also a bus service that provides regular access to Honiton and Taunton.
Little Tencery, although situated close to the centre of the scattered village of Dunkeswell, offers a surprising amount of privacy as it stands in delightful gardens extending to just over 1/4 of an acre which adjoin the church of St Nicholas to the east and the property has a sunny southerly front aspect.
Honiton lies about 5 miles to the south and is particularly well known as an antique and book centre, as well as having most of the usual multiples such as Smiths, Boots, Tesco and a variety of independent shops, restaurants, schools, sports centre/swimming pool, golf club and main line rail link to London (Waterloo). Honiton has excellent communication facilities with a dual carriageway to the Cathedral City of Exeter, the county town, some 22 miles to the west. Exeter has an excellent shopping centre as well as schools, sporting facilities, theatres, main line rail link to London Waterloo and Paddington, international airport and M5 access. The county town of Taunton is approximately 16 miles to the north where direct access to the M5 can be gained, together with express train to London Paddington. Express trains to London can also be found at Tiverton Parkway some 10 miles distant. The coast at Lyme Bay is about 14 miles to the south.
The property is approached from the lane through a 5-bar gate to a gravelled parking and turn around area with space for a number of vehicles. Adjacent to this is a purpose built timber open fronted garage with log store and Cloakroom. The gardens are level, particularly well maintained and create a most attractive setting for the property. There are areas of lawn including a raised lawn and to the rear are further areas of lawn with a sunken gravelled terrace area with sleeper steps leading up to the main garden which is bordered by profusely stocked colourful plant and shrub beds, there is also a substantial, productive vegetable plot. There is also a new large aluminium framed greenhouse and a large workshop which is approximately 30' x 12' recently renovated and improved, which would make an ideal Studio or even a Home Office with little adaptation. In all the grounds extend to approximately 0.27 acre.
