With a wonderful, elevated position enjoying lovely views over the village to the surrounding countryside, this property was extended and renovated in 2017/2018, mixing old with new with a real 'wow' factor. Being just a 5 minute drive from the surfing beach of Putsborough, this property is also located within easy reach of three other surfing beaches namely Woolacombe, Croyde & Saunton.
The accommodation at The Cowshed has been throughtfully arranged and offers great flexibility, providing either a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom home or two completely separate 1 bedroom properties (as currently let - The Cowshed & The Studio).
The ground floor accommodation is entered via a fabulous, part-glazed atrium joining the extension with the original farmhouse. The spacious sitting room with wood burner is located off the entrance hallway which also gives access to the kitchen/dining room, shower room and, via a clever 'pocket door' (which slides into the adjacent wall), allows access to an inner hallway. It is here that the accommodation can be divided to create The Studio which has a separate entrance porch and entrance from the Putsborough Road.
There is a kitchen or utility room, dependent on how the accommodation is being utilised, with stairs leading up to a large double aspect bedroom with a large bathroom with both shower & bath. This bedroom enjoys lovely south facing views over the village and the surrounding hillsides. (This bedroom & en suite are located above the 2nd kitchen/utility and the sitting room, within the farmhouse part of the house).
Returning to the glazed atrium entrance hallway, doors lead to a shower room and into the impressive part-vaulted kitchen/dining room which has a well fitted kitchen and bi-fold doors opening on to the south facing garden which is decked with an area of artificial lawn.
From the kitchen/dining room, stairs lead up to a light and airy, vaulted double bedroom with two velux windows and feature window to the south elevation, making the most of the lovely views over the village.
Currently the property is arranged as two 1 bedroom holiday lets with The Cowshed entered via the glazed atrium hallway and The Studio entered via a separate entrance porch accessed from the Putsborough Road.
Steps lead to an attractive, landscaped pathway to The Cowshed garden and main entrance. The property has virtually maintenance free gardens planted with grasses, flowers and structural planting through gravel and pebbled beds with a natural sandstone patio area by the main entrance door. The private garden is part decked and has part laid to artificial lawn also for ease of maintenance.
The property is approached through a pillared entrance leading to a large parking area where there is parking for 2 vehicles for The Cow Shed. There is also a storeroom and shed. This parking area is to be conveyed to The Cowshed. Cowslip Cottage (semi-detached to The Cowshed) also has designated parking for two vehicles within the parking area together with a small shed.
Within this parking area there is an attractive home/office/gym/garden room (7m x 2.5m), clad in Siberian Larch, fully insulated and with the benefit of power and light. This was built in early 2019 and is a great addition to the flexible accommodation this property can offer.
There is unrestricted parking in Putsborough Road & also alongside Cowslip Cottage wall where it abuts Netherhams Hill.
Originally The Cowshed & The Studio formed part of West End Farm which was built in the 1850's. Purchased in 2016 by the current owners, the property was sub-divided in 2017/2018 to create both this accommodation and the adjoining semi-detached Cowslip Cottage (marketed separately by taylor underwood). These two properties could combine via openings to the ground and first floor, to return to one property with annex or holiday let if required.
All necessary planning permissions and building regulations were obtained for the works undertaken in 2017/2018.
Oil central heating & hot water, part underfloor heating to ground floor. Woodburner in sitting room. Dual electric towel rail in ground floor shower room.
Mains electricity, water & drainage.
