Dating from around the 17th century, Gauntlet Cottage is a plastered cob thatched house offering flexible accommodation arranged over two floors and combines the amenities of modern living with a wealth of retained character features including exposed beams, cottage-style glazing and open fires.
The ground floor accommodation is accessed from a glazed porch opening into an entrance lobby and briefly comprises a large dual-aspect sitting room with an inglenook fireplace, a substantial dual-aspect dining room with an inglenook and wood burning stove, plus a dual-aspect kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen offers a range of bespoke units with integrated appliances, while there is also a breakfast room, family bathroom and a fitted utility room with garden access. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a well-proportioned bedroom, also ideal for use as an office/study or family room. The first floor accommodation offers three good-sized bedrooms, two with large built-in wardrobes, together with a study/bedroom five and a family shower room.
A paved path from the lane gives access to the porch and to a large paved terrace to south and east aspects. The good-size gardens are laid mainly to level lawn, bordered by pretty well-stocked flowerbeds and mature shrubs. There is a large Cedar of Lebanon tree dating from the 1930s, together with garden sheds and a private gravelled parking space accessed via double iron gates.
Gauntlet Cottage occupies an enviable position at the heart of the popular mid-Devon village of Silverton which offers an excellent selection of day-to-day amenities including an award-winning butcher/delicatessen/village store, two public houses, a community hall, church, health centre and popular primary school. The village has a thriving community and a number of societies and sporting clubs. The nearby historic city of Exeter, the regional capital of the South West, offers great business facilities together with open air markets, restaurants, cafés and wine bars. The city is well served with a good range of leisure and cultural amenities, including theatres, museums, galleries and cinemas and substantial shopping facilities including John Lewis and Waitrose.
