Boldbrook Cottage, Exmouth, is a period, detached cottage with good quality thatched roof that has been within the same family for several generations and there is no record of the property having been offered for sale in living memory.

The accommodation comprises reception hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, conservatory, three bedrooms and bathroom.

The gardens are an exceptional feature, best described as an oasis, in respect of the location in relation to the town and the nearby facilities in Withycombe Village Road. However, the immediate surroundings complement the style of a rural dwelling, without the isolation.

The property is for sale at an asking price of £425,000 through Bainbridge’s Estate Agency, tel: 01395 225303; web:
