A stunning, recently refurbished cottage in the heart of the village with formal gardens and grounds of about an acre.
Beech Cottage is a particularly attractive detached Grade II Listed residence which has recently been the subject of a comprehensive programme of renovation and improvement. It is now found in beautiful order, with great care and attention given to the fittings and overall finish. It retains a wealth of character features, all of which aid in creating a wonderful period ambiance and there are some stunning rooms such as the heavily beamed dining room and the vaulted principal bedroom with its wonderful exposed timbers and beams. Also worthy of note is the drawing room which is of generous proportions and has shuttered windows and French doors to the terrace and gardens.
The accommodation is adaptable in its arrangement and there are three reception rooms, whilst the first floor could provide five/six bedrooms, two of which have en-suites.
Gardens & Grounds.
The property is approached through timber electric gates to a parking area, adjacent to which is an attractive detached barn with a cedar shingle roof. This comprises and open store and implement store/workshop. The gardens to the front are mainly laid to lawn and there is an attractive pond and profusely stocked flower beds, as well as a magnificent Magnolia and Copper Beech, from which the property gets its name.
The rear formal gardens have recently been planted and are beautifully laid out in the Tudor style with hedged borders containing a mass of colourful plants including lavender and many roses. There is a large gravelled terrace and a fabulous detached garden room with adjoining store. There is also a timber pavilion which overlooks the gardens and a level lawn which doubles up as a croquet court. To the east is a sheltered orchard with greenhouse and there is also a beautiful natural garden, which runs behind the village primary school, where there is a pond and views over the countryside.
Beech Cottage is situated right in the heart of the attractive and active village of Plymtree, which has a range of amenities including a public house, pretty Parish Church of St John the Baptist, primary school and community shop. This in turn is located amongst some of the county's most picturesque countryside and although semi-rural, has very good road links being only a few miles from the A373. This gives access to the larger towns of Cullompton (4 miles) with M5 access, and Honiton (8 miles) with main line train station. There is also Tiverton Parkway station about 11 miles away which offers the express route to London Paddington. The Cathedral City of Exeter lies about 12 miles away and has an excellent shopping centre with many restraunts and eateries, as well as an international airport.
Beech Cottage can be found in the heart of the village and is next door to the primary school. With the church and public house on your left hand side, follow the road around to the left and the property will be found after a short distance on the left.
