A charming detached house with a self-contained two bedroom annexe, driveway parking and a large garage set in pretty gardens in the village of Musbury, just 3 miles south of Axminster and 3.5 miles inland from the coast and pretty Axmouth Harbour. The versatile accommodation comprises: (in the main house) three double bedrooms, family bathroom, entrance hall, sitting room with open fire, dining room, kitchen, utility room, ground floor shower room and a beautiful, large garden room overlooking the pretty garden and with views to the south and west. The annexe offers two large bedrooms, bathroom, generous lounge with doors to the garden, kitchen/dining room and ground floor cloakroom. There are two block paved parking areas, one in front of the large garage and the other in front of the annexe, both of which offer parking for at least two vehicles. There is a very pretty front garden bounded by a stone wall, which provides good privacy. The ground continues to the side of the property and around to the back where there is an attractively landscaped garden and lovely views to the far countryside. The property is very well presented with double glazed windows and all mains services including gas central heating.
The cottage is situated in Musbury village, which offers many facilities within a short walk of the property, including a shop and post office, petrol station and car repairs, village pub, Church, primary school and regular bus services. The village offers easy access to nearby towns, the railway station at Axminster, 3 miles away, (with trains to London Waterloo and Exeter) and good road links. For those who enjoy walking, Musbury is well positioned with some very good walks from the door step, in particular the walk up to Musbury Castle, an Iron Age Hill fort from where there are great views over the Axe Valley.
