A charming three-bedroom Grade II Listed cottage at the heart of a sought-after village near to Exet

One of a row of three late 16th century cottages, 3 Craigs Cottages is a sensitively-extended cob family home offering over 1,200 sq. ft. of light-filled attractive accommodation arranged over two floors, combining the amenities of modern living with retained period features including some exposed beams and original fireplaces. Featuring exposed wooden flooring throughout, the ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall and briefly comprises a large sitting room with feature woodburning stove and open-sided stairs to the first floor, a generous kitchen with a range of bespoke units, Belfast sink and space for a breakfast table, a front aspect dining room with bi-fold doors to the garden and a contemporary fully-tiled cloakroom/shower room.

On the first floor the property provides a generous principal bedroom with feature inset fire surround, two further well-proportioned bedrooms and a modern family bathroom.


Set well back from the village street in a delightful pedestrianised position, the property is approached through a pedestrian gate over a low-maintenance front garden with a gravelled path bordered on one side by an area of level lawn and on the other by a paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining.
