This is a delightful and most attractive Grade 2 Listed Detached Cottage believed to date from the mid 1600's and offering deceptively spacious accommodation. There are lovely far reaching country views to the rear whilst a regular bus service provides easy access into Exeter some 5 miles away. The village itself has a wide range of amenities with a historic Church, village hall, school and inns. The cottage has been the subject of sympathetic improvement including a rear extension and conservatory whilst retaining a wealth of original features including an inglenook fireplace and exposed beams. There is room for some updating and external maintenance will be required. There is a master bedroom suite on the ground floor with en suite facilities whilst outside there is a detached outbuilding that has been converted to a studio or guest room. There are spacious and level gardens on three sides which benefit from the excellent views. The cottage needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.
DIRECTIONS: From Exeter follow the road towards Crediton through the village of Half Moon. Shortly after the cottage is on the right opposite a lay-by with a bus stop
