Have a 'nose' around a village cottage in Abbotskerswell this Saturday 20th June - 9:30am to 10:30am

We invite you to view:

Yeomans Cottage, Slade Lane, Abbotskerswell, TQ12 5NP

Saturday 20th June - Between 9:30am to 10:30am

No appointment necessary - Just turn up & view


Offers In Excess Of: £300,000

Yeomans Cottage probably dates back around 350 years. It has been variously used as a single dwelling and at least 2 workers cottages. This is evidenced by the two substantial Inglenook fireplaces with bread ovens and substantial beams, situated at opposite ends of the property. These currently form fantastic focal points for both the living room and dining room. The unusual shape of the thatch, which dips at the front almost forming a nose, and the windows and panels beneath which also harp back to a time when the property had two front doors. Built of stone and cob the thick walls make the property cool in summer and warm in winter.

The layout for a period property is very usable, with good sized entrance, cloak room and utility on the ground floor in addition to a Farmhouse style kitchen opening to the enclosed cottage style rear garden and the two well sized reception rooms.

A winding staircase at either end of the property provides access to the first floor accommodation. “The West Wing” comprising good sized double bedroom with an en-suite. This would benefit from a little updating but provides the ideal lair for a teenager or great guest accommodation. “The East Wing” provides the majority of the bedroom space, including landing, family bathroom and two good sized double bedrooms, one of which has a further en-suite. Both of these rooms have characterful beamed ceilings and windows with window seats. From the landing a further short flight of stairs climbs to the final single bedroom/study.

The property is set back from the road, behind attractive raised flower borders which are well stocked with mature plants. There is also a substantial hard standing which can accommodate several cars. Beyond this and accessed via a gate is the attractive rear garden which offers a good degree of privacy and comprises lawns and patio areas along with mature borders. 

The agent’s opinion is that the property is in fair order throughout but could benefit from a little investment and updating. We do however feel this would pay financial dividends for the new owner. The beautiful grade II listed cottage is open to view between 9:30am and 10:30am on Saturday 20th June. No appointment necessary, so if you are looking for something a bit different then come along.
