East Church Cottage , situated in the desirable village of East Lydford, is a wonderfully restored property recently renovated to an incredibly high standard. The current owners have triumphantly created a home with all the history and charm of a period property coupled with the benefits of modern technology for low maintenance and easy living in complete comfort. The property dates back several hundred years and is a picture-perfect cottage with a well maintained thatched roof and a delightful rear garden. The open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room is a fabulous space to cook, entertain and relax whilst overlooking the pretty back garden with three sets of French doors. The deep window seats, beautifully curved walls and handcrafted kitchen, coupled with the sophisticated and sympathetic interiors, shows off the highest level of attention to detail. A second reception room, currently used as a snug, could equally work well as a study with its original fireplace and aged oak flooring. A downstairs loo, a generous utility room and a useful boot room can also be found on the ground floor.
Upstairs are four double bedrooms all with vaulted ceilings exposing the original beamed structure overhead. The master bedroom has a beautiful en-suite furnished with Fired Earth tiles and high-end fittings. A separate family bathroom is again furnished beautifully with a claw foot bath and views overlooking the surrounding countryside.
The garden is mostly laid to lawn with beautiful planting of shrubs and trees with a terraced area, perfect for dining al fresco. An attractive green oak car port provides shelter for two cars and an adjoining garden room could be used as a gym, home office or a space to simply recline and unwind.
