South Milton, renowned for its friendly community, is just over a mile inland from a National Trust beach, the South West Coast Path and the popular Beach House Cafe. The larger village of Thurlestone with its 4 star hotel, together with pub, post office/general stores, church, 18 hole links golf course and highly regarded primary school is close by.
Collacot is believed to be the oldest house in the village, dating back to the early sixteenth century and at one time was a school. This charming cottage has an abundance of character and some truly wonderful period features.
On the ground floor is a spacious sitting room with wood burning stove. The kitchen dining room has an AGA and the current owners fitted a Treyone kitchen with Fisher Paykel dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a utility room and shower room. There are three bedrooms on the first floor and a family bathroom.
At the side of the house is a two storey building, currently arranged with an office on the ground floor and bedroom with WC on the first. It would however make a perfect self-contained annex, subject to any necessary consents.
The pretty cottage garden is well stocked and an absolute delight, a gate provides access onto a path that leads to the lower part of the village and hall where there are regular events. There is a garage with driveway parking in front for two cars and an additional space to the left of the house.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a historic home not far from the coast.
Mains water, drainage and electricity. Oil fired central heating.
