A charming detached bungalow occupying a lane side location in the small popular village of Cotleigh.

The property has been a much loved family home for over 30 years. The property is now in need of modernisation but offers the potential of taking this great home to the next level.

The main property has had (in the past) planning for a magnificent first floor extension. The bungalow benefits from a good sized entrance hallway, 3 good sized bedrooms, a lounge with open fire, a fantastic dining room with triple aspect windows and patio doors, good sized kitchen with multi fuel Rayburn, family bathroom and conservatory.

The property further benefits from UPVC double glazing and multi fuel heating.

Jesters Forge is situated in the scattered village of Cotleigh, which in turn is located in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amongst some of the county's most attractive rolling countryside. Cotleigh has a Village Hall and pretty Parish Church of St Michael, and has access to some beautiful walks over the myriad of footpaths in the near vicinity.

Jesters Forge is readily accessible to the bustling market town of Honiton which lies approximately 3 miles away and which has an extensive range of independent retailers and shops, banks, schools, sports centre/swimming pool, hospital and main line rail link to London (Waterloo). Exeter, the County Town, is about 21 miles to the west with an excellent shopping centre, theatres, sports and leisure facilities, M5 access, international airport and rail link to London (Paddington).

Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top mixed state schools, is some 8 miles to the south west, and the stunning World Heritage Jurassic coast at Lyme Bay is about 12 miles distant.

To the front of the property, there is dual exit driveway with ample parking for several cars, with a path leading to the property's front entrance through a garden area. To the side, there is access through the plot to the field beyond the property.

The land is level and lies mainly to the rear and side. It is currently divided into separate areas, which include a formal garden, vegetable garden, duck pond, chicken runs and a paddock. A wide variety of flowering shrubs, plants and trees are planted throughout and the effect is to create an ideal eco system for native insects and animals.

Within the grounds there is a hay barn, and space for a polytunnel, as well as a large barn, currently used as a workshop and vehicle storage. There is a further wooden outbuilding, which could be used as a study or summer house. In total the property extends to approximately 1.47 acres.
