    Located in one of Mid-Devon’s most sought after villages, a semi-detached 2 bedroom cottage with gardens, parking and views. Viewing advised!

    Sandford is a lively village just over a mile north of the market town of Crediton and has an excellent community with various clubs and societies meeting regularly. There are two pubs, a community shop and a primary school, churches and a sports field including a tennis court.

    This semi-detached house is tucked away in the heart of the old part of the village, just off The Square and has off-road parking which is a real rarity for character properties in this price range in the village. On the ground floor, the kitchen/dining room is well fitted with modern yet in keeping units and working surfaces plus a built in oven and hob and a sink with a view. There is room for a table and 4/6 chairs too. The living room has a lovely inglenook fireplace housing an Efel oil fired stove, useful under stairs cupboard and is full of character. The ground floor benefits from Travertine floor tiles. On the first floor, a landing gives access to the shower room and 2 bedrooms with the master bedroom being large and dual aspect overlooking the village rooftops to the surrounding countryside and out over the garden.

    Outside, the part cobbled access lane gives rise to the parking area in front of the house. There is a paved seating area with stone fish-pond and a variety of planting creates a private space close to the house. The garden is an irregular shape but with plenty of space over many levels. Some steps lead up to a pathway with a large shed, further seating area and planted borders. The garden could be further enhanced to give more useable space.

    Agents Notes: The property’s history suggests a connection to the traditional rural craft of stripping wood for manufacture of small items and this cottage has been known as “Strippers”. As it backs onto the orchard to the rear, a new owner could run with the official name or change to suit with the post office. Orchard Cottage was chosen as a marketing name.

    Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

    SANDFORD is a civil parish and village 1½ miles north of Crediton, with a historic 12th Century Church. It has an old -world feel, with slender twisting streets, flanked by antique thatched cottages – displaying a menagerie of “Beatrix Potter” style perennial gardens. At the village heart sits a 16thCentury Post House, enshrined by creepers – this is now ‘The Lamb Inn’, an award winning pub/ restaurant; with a rustic aesthetic and cheerful spirit. Featured in ‘The Daily Mail’s – 20 Best British Country Pubs’ (2015). Across the way from here is the shop/ post office, run by the local community. Community is something that underpins every aspect of Sandford, including the local sporting events. Residents have a choice of things to do: such as joining the village cricket, tennis, football and rugby clubs. For the kids, Sandford has a highly sought after pre-school and a primary school (known for its classic Greek-style architecture). Older ones fall within the direct catchment for Q.E.C.C. in Crediton (with an Ofsted “outstanding” Sixth Form). Sandford is linked to Crediton via a footpath, then runs through the Millennium Green on the outskirts of the village – past a wildflower meadow, herb garden, over a crystal stream, yonder tilled fields to a little copse at the town’s-edge.
