Clematis Cottage is situated in a splendid country location within the small active village of Luppitt, which in turn is located in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village of Luppitt nestles amongst some of Devon's finest rolling countryside and the property itself is just a stones throw from Luppitt Common, a private landholding of some 200 acres and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The village has a beautiful early 14th century church, public house and a thriving village hall. Clematis Cottage sits in an elevated position, thus taking full advantage of the panoramic country views and there is excellent access for walking, riding and other country pursuits in the area.
The nearby busy market town of Honiton is approximately 6 miles distant with a main line rail link to London (Waterloo). An express rail link can also be found at Taunton, some 17 miles distant. Exeter, the County Town, lies some 24 miles to the west with excellent shopping facilities, theatres, arts centre, main line rail link to London (Paddington), international airport and M5 access. The World Heritage Coastline know as the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Bay is approximately 12 miles distant.
The well-proportioned accommodation has a welcoming large entrance hall which could be used as a dining room, this leads to the spacious triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room to the rear which has plenty of storage and ample space for a table and chairs. The charming double aspect sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace with a solid fuel burner and oak flooring. Also on the ground-floor is a good-sized utility and a cloakroom. On the first-floor are the two large double bedrooms (formerly three), the principle room has built in wardrobes and a Juliet balcony with views towards Luppitt Common. The family bathroom has a white suite with a corner bath, a shower over and electric under-floor heating.
GARDENS & GROUNDS
Worthy of particular mention are the wonderful grounds which extend to all four sides of the property and measure approximately 1/3 of an acre. They consist of many mature trees and shrubs and are in the main laid to lawn. A patio area at the rear provides a great space to sit out during fine weather. A detached studio is situated to the side, this has been used as a study and has heating and power. The detached double garage at the side has the potential to be classed as an annexe (subject to the necessary planning permission). A private driveway leads to the parking area which has space for several vehicles.
