An utterly charming and immaculately presented Grade II listed cottage with a fabulous garden in the heart of a beautiful and thriving village.
Stonecross Cottage has been completely refurbished by the current and is part of an original Devon longhouse, some of the structures and features are believed to date back to Medieval times. Understood to have been built by wool farmers, the animals would have walked through a passage which is now the most stunning of kitchens and in the stables at the rear of the garden.
Inside, the interiors and feel of this charming cottage are quite superb and the attention to detail is exceptional throughout. The kitchen/breakfast room is clearly the heart of the home and is centred around the Aga with the breakfast area enjoying the most wonderful outlook over the lovely village green. There are concertina doors that open out onto the front terrace which is the perfect spot for alfresco dining.
The double aspect sitting room is brimming with period charm and wonderful views over neighbouring countryside, there is a stable door that provides side access alongside a luxurious fireplace creating a lovely cosy atmosphere. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes the snug with its attractive décor and impressive feature fireplace and a downstairs cloakroom.
The original staircase rises to the first floor landing to three magnificent bedrooms all enjoying their own identity, an exquisite double vanity bathroom with a roll top bath and vies over the garden and a further shower room..
Stonecross cottage has recently been used as a highly successful holiday cottage; figures can be provided upon request.
