A glorious detached Grade II listed thatched cottage in the South Hams village of Rattery, a short distance from Totnes. This picture postcard cottage is in immaculate order, oozes with character and offers flexible accommodation with 3 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms and a large kitchen/dining room. It has a large tiered rear garden within which is a detached studio.
The property is entered via a porch into a cosy sitting room with original beams, a window seat that looks out over the front onto the lane and a large inglenook fireplace fitted with a wood burner. To the side is an enclosed staircase to the first floor. A doorway leads through to the large light and bright kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has a Belfast sink, range and attractive fully fitted units finished off with wooden worktops.
A light and airy glazed passageway leads through to a glorious extension with a large double bedroom with French windows and a fully tiled shower room on the ground floor, and upstairs a stunning living room with vaulted ceilings, a wood burner and French window onto a small paved terrace with gorgeous garden views.
Back in the main cottage, the staircase in the sitting room takes you up to the master bedroom with lovely village views, a further bedroom and an immaculate bathroom with painted tongue and groove woodwork and attractive tiling around the bath.
To the front of the property is a small seating area, perfect for a morning coffee. The main garden is approached through a 5 bar gate to the side, where there is gravelled parking, a woodstore, and steps up to the garden under which is a large storage area with tap. In the garden, there is a small terraced area created from railway sleepers, from which paving stones lead across lawns up to the detached studio.
