Rose Cottage West nestles at the end of a tiny lane in the small hamlet of Smithincott about half a mile from Uffculme with its renowned Uffculme Secondary School. The cottage has been skilfully and sympathetically extended and updated incorporating gas central heating and double glazing. The ground floor offers a conservatory entrance leading to a generous hall, sitting room with impressive fireplace, bathroom and superb country kitchen/dining/family room. The first floor is slightly split level and offers three bedrooms and shower room. Outside the front garden leads to the large garage/store whilst the landscaped rear garden offers a safe and secure environment for both children and pets. Unusually for a country property the cottage is connected to both mains gas and mains drainage and an early inspection is strongly recommended to those seeking a well presented characterful semi detached cottage.
Tucked away at the end of this tiny country lane serving just five or six properties. The tiny hamlet of Smithincott lies a short walk from the River Culm and Uffculme Village with its post office stores, one stop shop, primary and secondary schooling and frequent bus service. A more extensive range of shopping facilities is to be found at Cullompton with its range of High Street shops, two supermarkets, doctors, community centre, library and sports centre. The surrounding countryside offers a wealth of rural pursuits with the nearby Blackdown Hills being designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The nearby M5 facilitates rapid commuting south to the cathedral city of Exeter and north to the county town of Taunton. The comparatively central Mid Devon location places the picturesque national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor together with the north and south Devon coastlines all within a modest car journey.
