Full Property Details

This fine cottage is believed to be a few hundred years old, with the original part built of cob and stone and re-rendered recently with a lime-based render. In recent years, our clients have extended the cottage significantly, adding a large kitchen/breakfast room and second sitting room. The kitchen is fitted in a classic Shaker style, with extensive cupboard storage and work surface, a cooking range, with extractor canopy over, and space for appliances. Underfloor heating completes this room, and this has also been installed in the hallway, downstairs shower room and en suite shower room, with all of these areas heated by individually controlled electric mats.

The sitting/dining room has attractive original features, including beams and ceiling joists, a stone fireplace with wood burner, and a most unique, oak window with lattice panes, which is believed to have originated from a historic naval ship. The second sitting room is decorated in a warm, red colour and is the perfect place to relax quietly.

Also downstairs, there is a useful study and adjoining this, a uPVC double glazed garden room, overlooking the pond and rear garden.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms with the principal suite a good size, with a large bedroom, adjoining dressing area, with fitted wardrobes, and an en suite shower room, fitted in a contemporary style with a large shower cubicle. The main bathroom is fitted with a white suite and has a feature, stained glass window.

On approach to Store Cottage, there is an open fronted garage with steps beside, leading to the raised, paved forecourt and front door. To the rear, there is a large, established garden, principally laid to lawn with a large fish pond, flower and shrub beds and borders, a vegetable garden with small poly-greenhouse and sheds. The garden enjoys a southerly, sunny aspect.

Services: mains water and electricity. Private sewage treatment plant. Private oil tank for the central heating boiler. Propane LPG gas bottles for the gas hob.
Tenure: Freehold
Council Tax: Band E
Local Authority: Mid Devon District Council

Agent's note: the position of the sewage treatment plant in the rear garden is less than the recommended distance from the rear extension of the property and as a consequence, Building Regulation Control have not issued a completion certificate for the building. However, Seddons understand they have confirmed they are not going to take enforcement action and in addition, a structural engineer has provided a reassuring report to confirm the structural viability of the extension, a copy of which is available from Seddons on request.

Whilst there is no direct access to the rear garden, other than through the cottage, the neighbour allows access for a pipe for periodic emptying of the treatment plant.

Brithem Bottom is a small rural village offering peace and seclusion, yet lying less than ten minutes' drive from either Junction 27 or 28 of the M5, with the former close to Tiverton Parkway station, with regular intercity services; London Paddington in about two hours.

Cullompton is the closest town, with a range of shops, including an award-winning butcher's, and popular coffee shops and cafes, 'The Bakehouse', 'The Lime Tree', 'Nosh' and a Costa. Tesco is close by and there is an Aldi supermarket and a Home Bargains store the other side of the town. Other amenities include a contemporary health centre and doctor's surgeries, a library, community centre, veterinary practice, churches, sports clubs, pubs and recreation facilities.

Cullompton is ideally placed for commuting, with quick access to Exeter via the motorway or the B3181 main road through Broadclyst and Pinhoe. There are regular bus services through the town and the 'Falcon' coach service also stops in the town, providing economic travel between Plymouth and Bristol, with stops in between, including Bristol Airport.
