Forming part of a small complex of barn conversions converted approximately 20 years ago, this attractive property offers good sized accommodation, a double garage and workshop. Situated along a quiet lane just two and a half miles from Honiton, the location is rurally peaceful and yet offers easy access to trunk roads and nearby towns. The accommodation has been upgraded throughout and comprises three bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, family bathroom, (both of which have been re-fitted), entrance hall, wc, L shaped living/dining room with multi-fuel stove and a most attractive kitchen/breakfast room which has been re-fitted with hand-made units. Outside, at the back is a small courtyard area housing the boiler, oil tank, bin storage and greenhouse, whilst at the front is a pretty enclosed courtyard style garden, which offers plenty of space for Al Fresco dining etc. Just outside the garden gate is a good size workshop with power and light. A short distance away from the house, is the garaging and parking area. The property benefits from ownership of a double garage, also with light and power connected. The tarmac parking and turning area is generous. The house has undergone a programme of improvements in recent years to include re-fitted bathrooms and kitchen, a new oil fired boiler, new windows, fascias and doors and general redecoration. Residential only.

The property has been refurbished during the last seven years, to include new uPVC double glazed windows and doors, plus a new boiler. The barn conversion retained some of the barn features including the beams. This barn was originally where the cows were kept. Wooden latch doors, deep sills, stone walls, certainly enhance the character and ambiance of this lovely home.
The residents are members of Cotleigh Manor Residents Association. Residents do share the cost of cleaning the courtyard of leaves and weeds, cleaning the car park, repairs to tarmac as and when necessary. There is a sewage treatment plant that is run by an electric pump and emptied and serviced annually. The cost for this is approximately £45 per quarter per household. Other costs for the maintenance of communal areas is shared as and when required.
