This charming cottage occupies an enviable tucked away location in the charming coastal town of Exmouth on the East Devon coast. Believed to have originally been built in the early 1900's for the butler of the Bystock Estate there are many traditional design values of the time evident throughout, from the deep square bay windows to the tall ceilings and feature fireplaces, the wonderfully proportioned rooms and practical facilities such as a boot room and utility, formal dining room and dual aspect sitting room.
The first floor boasts three double bedrooms and a large bathroom/WC while the landing areas enjoy natural light and a generous amount of beautifully fitted built-in storage cupboards, some of which we imagine were originally built to house the butlers own attire.
Cedar Cottage has been lovingly lived in for over 20 years by the present owner, updating the property over time while remaining true to the character of the original house. Enhancements include handsome oak floors, a modern gas boiler and a modern kitchen with comfortable breakfast area ideal for family gatherings.
Outside the cottage is approached either from the private off road parking area to the head of the garden affording space for at least two cars or alternatively through the gated entrance within the mature established hedgerow to the front. This approach across the front footpath provides visitors with an undeniable perspective of the charm and character of Cedar Cottage, from the twin gabled roof and well balanced bay windows flanking the covered entrance porch to the subtle nod to the Arts & Crafts movement in the tall brick chimney stacks above.
The gardens surround the North, East and West elevations and represent the quintessential English country cottage garden while enjoying tremendous privacy from the mature hedgerows that surround the boundaries. Predominantly laid to lawn with various patio areas ideal for summer dining and a feature rockery and pond to attract the local wildlife. To the rear is a large timber built potting shed while the gardens also enjoy external power points and water.
