An Amazingly Characterful Cottage In An Equally Charming Setting. Tranquil Countryside Views, Fantastic Garden, And Parking Directly Outside.

Weeke Hill is a symphony for the senses. Birdsong and the sound of gently flowing water. Foliage in every shade of green, the expanse of bright blue sky and a glorious mixture of delicate scents from the wealth of blossom trees all combine to give a wonderful sensation of peace and tranquillity.

Amid this halcyon scene lies Gothic Cottage. Perfectly in keeping with its surroundings, this pretty and distinctive three-bedroom Victorian cottage is a wonderful escape from modern life, yet is only a mile and an easy and pleasant walk from the bustling town centre of Dartmouth.

The Gothic revival architecture is something to behold at the aptly named Gothic Cottage. Admiring the cottage from the country lane in which it is situated, it is little wonder this beautiful property is Grade II Listed as a fine example of its special architectural interest. The gables and ornamental zig-zag bargeboards, finials and pendants combined with triangular arch-headed windows really are something to behold.

A few steps lead up to the front door but first, take a moment to note the sweet cottage-style front garden hidden behind the stone wall. A wonderful spot to enjoy the tranquillity of the setting.

A handy porch way greets us as we enter the property with a door off into the living room as well as into the characterful kitchen. Vaulted ceilings with roof lights and a small lancet window add charm and the feeling of space to this welcoming room.  Fully fitted with timber cabinetry and tiled worktop and flooring, and room for a large fridge freezer, it is the splendid double range though, that takes centre stage.

Drift through the back of the kitchen to the living room. A delightful, open-plan living and dining room. A fantastic oak column acts as a natural divider of the space creating a dining area - elegantly crafted antique furniture serves to highlight the beautiful triangular arched oriel windows maximising the verdant vista.

An oak fireplace with wood burning stove creates a great focal point as well as a wonderfully cosy feel to the room. To the right of this space, we find a great study, as well as a handy ground-floor WC.

Climb the stairs. At the top, we are drawn into bedroom 2 a spacious dual-aspect room laid with two single beds. Next door the Master bedroom is equally as big. Both rooms have amazing countryside views through their distinctive period windows. Across the hallway a newly renovated bathroom. Navy furniture topped with marble counters compliments the period of the house whilst adding a modern twist. From the characterful window, we notice the magnificent garden. Wind back down through the house to explore this magical piece of land.

At the rear of the property, the garden is set on several natural terraces. The first is a large terrace directly at the back of the house - complete with two handy storage sheds. Wind your way through the wildflowers to the second terrace. Here we find a barbecue and dining area and with good reason. The views from this elevated spot are unbelievable.

Right over the treelined lane to the fields beyond. The abundance of light and space here is sensational and quite unexpected so close to town. Further up there is another private terrace laid amongst mature planting and the opportunity for so much more. The land would easily accommodate a garden room or further storage. Parking is easy at this property too - the lane directly outside is unrestricted and spaces are always available.
