This recently re-thatched charming semi-detached Grade II Listed cottage is beautifully located on the outskirts of the pretty Mid-Devon village of Newbuildings, in a quiet backwater position enjoying much privacy and seclusion being well away from main roads, yet accessible for Crediton.
The cottage has lovely three bedroom accommodation presented in a good condition throughout, being full of old world charm and character with a wealth of exposed beams, open fireplaces and a gas stove in the living room. There are modern conveniences too, with gas central heating (LPG) and an en-suite shower room. The large gardens are a lovely feature of the property, being well established, and extending to over 100′ (30.48m). There is an adjoining vegetable/soft garden of approximately 80′ (24.38m) ideal for someone looking to be more self-sufficient, plus a paddock of approx 100’. There are various outbuildings including a summer house office/studio which is fully insulated and lined, and having 13amp power, telephone line & lighting, and several useful timber store sheds. The cottage has ample off-road parking to the rear plus a garage. The whole outside is believed to extend to just over half an acre.
The present owner of Mortimores had successfully obtained planning permission to create a new accommodation building in the grounds. The proposed building had an internal ground floor area of 50m2 which will provide a double bedroom, bathroom / wc, living area, services, storage and an open mezzanine above the bedroom for an office. This planning has now lapsed, but could be reapplied for if desired.
NEWBUILDINGS is a family-friendly, peaceful hamlet with characteristic thatched cottages and farmhouses in Sandford Parish, encompassed by rolling farmland and gentle sloping valleys. It lies 3 miles north west of the market town of Crediton, 2 miles east of the village of Copplestone and 10 miles north of the regional capital, Exeter. The A377 and Tarka Line that link Exeter and North Devon are within a few minutes’ drive. Residents enjoy the plentiful walks across the luscious hills and experience awe-inspiring views, spreading to the horizon; if that isn’t enough, the outstanding natural beauty of Dartmoor and Exmoor are a short drive away. For convenience, there is a local supermarket at Crediton and essentials can be picked up from the Copplestone village shop – a couple of minutes’ drive away.
DIRECTIONS : Leaving Crediton toward the village of Sandford after half a mile, turn left at West Lodge Cross as signed to Newbuildings, and follow this road for just over 2 miles until arriving in Newbuildings. Proceed into the village, and take the first right hand turning at Newbuildings Cross. Proceed down the lane for about 80 yards and take the 3rd driveway on the right. Proceed to the end of the driveway and swing around to the left and park in front of the right-hand garage of a pair of garages, and Mortimores will be found down on your right.
