SITUATION

Combpyne is a beautiful hamlet situated in a sheltered East Devon valley with a medieval manor house, a 13th century church and a village pond known as The Harbour . There is a village hall, a social club shared by the neighbouring village of Rousdon and various regular activities. The village is in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just a 5 minute drive from the popular coastal town of Lyme Regis, the gateway to the stunning Jurassic Coast and less than 2 miles to the South West Coast Path and Axmouth to Lyme Undercliffs National Nature Reserve. Being by the coast on the borders of Devon and Dorset affords access to the larger towns of Bridport, Sidmouth and Honiton and is within easy reach of Dorchester and Exeter, with its regional airport, some 20 miles distant. The mainline rail link to London (Waterloo) at Axminster is six miles away. The village is within the catchment areas of excellent local schools, including Colyton Grammar and Woodroffe School in Lyme Regis.

THE PROPERTY

A very attractive and substantial semi-detached character house, a converted barn which formed part of the medieval Manor Farm, with stone and flint elevations under a slate roof. The characterful property retains the traditional features of a barn with exposed timbers visible in all the upstairs rooms, thick walls offering deep wooden windowsills, internal ledge and brace cottage doors, and in the attic room exposed A frame timbers.

 

The well presented property is composed of entrance hall, spacious sitting room with multi fuel burner, dining room, kitchen, utility room, downstairs wetroom with three double bedrooms upstairs, an ensuite to the master bedroom and a large family bathroom. There is a further room in the converted attic with Velux windows.

 

The property is well proportioned and has recently been extensively updated by the current owners with the addition of the wetroom, a refurbished kitchen, utility and ensuite, new unvented hot water and heating system repiped with stunning column radiators. The entire upstairs flooring was replaced with traditional reclaimed wooden floorboards. A Worcester boiler and uPVC windows were replaced in the last 5 years. There is still the opportunity to put your own stamp on the place as while in full working order, the bathroom would benefit from upgrading.

OUTSIDE

The setting is pretty and secluded, with the cottage nestled between the church and the former Manor Farm. It also overlooks the Harbour .

 

To the front of the property is an easy care south facing garden and an off road parking space. To the rear of the property the garden has at times been used to create further off road parking.

SERVICES

Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil fired central heating.
