A charming detached Grade II Listed thatched cottage with outbuildings at the heart of Bickleigh.

Formerly two cottages and dating in part from the late 17th century, Church Green is a plastered cob and stone residence offering flexible accommodation arranged in an L-shaped configuration over two floors and benefits from additional outbuildings, one ripe for conversion into additional living or office space, if required (subject to planning permission). The property combines the amenities of modern living with a wealth of retained character features including casement windows and exposed beams.

The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming entrance hall briefly comprises a spacious rear aspect sitting room with feature corner fireplace, a well-proportioned dual aspect office and a large rear aspect kitchen/breakfast room with a neighbouring fitted utility room with Belfast sink. The kitchen offers a range of wall and floor units, a window seat, space for a good-sized table and double doors to a glazed rear porch/boot room.

The first floor is accessible over two separate staircases from the entrance hall and the kitchen/breakfast room and offers a generous master bedroom with built-in storage. There is a second dual aspect bedroom with built-in storage and an en suite bathroom, one further rear aspect bedroom and a family bathroom.

Outside

Church Green enjoys a prominent village site and an unspoiled exterior with gardens. The property is approached over a private roadway offering private parking with a pedestrian path leading to a paved terrace and seating area bordered by an area of gently-sloping lawn screened by mature hedging. To one side of the roadway lies a generous detached outbuilding offering a workshop and one further room, ideal for conversion into office or further living accommodation if required (subject to planning permission). The rear garden features areas of terraced lawn, a rockery with garden pond and a second outbuilding incorporating a store and a converted timber-lined garden room with full-height glazing to two aspects and French doors to a large paved terrace with pizza oven, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. The whole garden enjoys far-reaching views over surrounding countryside.
