A charming Grade II listed character detached cottage enjoying a delightful village setting with lovely large gardens, benefitting from ample private parking and a useful range of adaptable outbuildings, the whole extending to about 0.18 Acres.

Fir Cottage represents a quintessential character thatched cottage enjoying a delightful position in a popular and sought after North Devon village. The cottage is Grade II listed and believed to date in part from the early 18th century, with later extensions to the rear. Providing comfortable two bedroomed accommodation the property exhibits many period features whilst also benefiting from LPG central heating and part double glazing. Beautiful large enclosed gardens form a particularly attractive feature, containing a useful and adaptable range of outbuildings. In total Fir Cottage and its associated gardens extend to about 0.18 Acres.
The accommodation is accessed via a pretty thatched entrance porch with a stone tiled floor and heavy oak studded door leading into the entrance hall, with stairs rising to the first floor. From here an opening leads into the sitting room, a character reception room containing a large inglenook style fireplace recess with original bread oven and beam over, inset with a wood burning stove on a stone tiled hearth. A window seat enjoys views to the front with a further shelved display recess. The dining room contains a small fireplace recess with shelved display recesses to either side with ornate glazed doors. Doors from both the dining and sitting rooms lead into an inner hall, with an understairs recess, and hence into the double aspect kitchen/breakfast room. The well appointed kitchen area boasts an excellent range of recently installed fitted base units with work surfaces over and stone tiled splashbacks. Inset 1??bowl sink and Rangemaster electric cooker providing a six ring ceramic hob, double oven and grill, with extractor hood over. The breakfast area contains a further range of base units with a work surface over and matching wall cupboards with under cupboard lighting. Attractive wood effect tiled flooring runs through the kitchen and breakfast area and continues into a charming garden room, enjoying lovely views through double glazed patio doors over the gardens to the rear, with a well appointed downstairs shower room off. On the fist floor are two good sized double bedrooms, each benefiting from en-suite facilities, and a further boiler room with plumbing for a washing machine.

The desirable and sought after village of Chittlehamholt lies in gently undulating and unspoilt North Devon countryside between the valleys of the Rivers Taw and Mole. The village has a thriving local community and boasts an historic public house, The Exeter Inn, a village hall, community shop and the Highbullen Country House Hotel, offering an 18 hole golf course, swimming pool, gym and excellent leisure facilities.
The nearby B3226 affords an easy link to the market town of South Molton providing a good range of everyday services including shops, banks, recreational facilities, primary and secondary schooling. From South Molton the A361 North Devon Link Road provides quick and easy access to the regional centre of Barnstaple to the north-west and Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27) to the south-east. Mainline rail services are available at Tiverton Parkway, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

Situated to the front of the property is a charming cottage style garden enclosed by low walls topped with iron railings, with a front gate and stone paved pathway flanked on either side by gravelled areas with well stocked raised flower and shrub beds. To the side of the cottage a gravelled area adjoining the road leads into a private gravelled drive providing parking for three cars and access to the detached garage, with an electric up and over garage door. Adjoining to the rear of the garage is a log store, with double glazed patio doors, and a useful workshop.
A pedestrian gate leads from the driveway into a lovely large paved patio area affording a courtyard style feel to the rear of the cottage. Situated adjacent to the patio is a further range of outbuildings containing a former office, now used as a utility room with a fitted work surface. Adjoining is a greenhouse/potting shed with a glazed sink on a low brick plinth, a tiled floor and glazed double doors with side panels. This range of outbuildings may have potential for alternative uses, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consent.
The rear patio enjoys lovely views over the gardens which have been divided into two principle compartments. The main upper section is laid to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders contained within shrub and tree borders, affording a good degree of privacy and seclusion. A further gate and laurel covered timber arch lead into the lower garden which is primarily dedicated to vegetable and fruit growing with paved walkways, a large raised vegetable/fruit bed, apple trees and a fig tree. Also situated in this area is a timber framed and part profile steel roofed poultry run and a small garden shed, with a private lawned sitting out area adjoining.
