This delightful property lies in an enviable position enjoying a fine outlook over its own extensive grounds sloping down to the river, it's boundary, and the valley beyond. The original cottage was sympathetically renovated to provide very spacious, well appointed accommodation with the majority of the bedroom accommodation on the ground floor and the master suite upstairs. The extensive sitting room is on the first floor, taking full advantage of the views and opening onto a large decked terrace, ideal for entertaing.
Many of the original timbers of the property have been carefully used throughout to give plenty of character to the accommodation, notably in the sitting room and kitchen. The inherent charm is enhanced by many other natural wood features and in the farmhouse kitchen, which has plenty of dining space, an Aga gives a lovely warm, welcome atmosphere. The bathroom and en suite shower room have been fitted in a contemporary style and there are wood burners in each of the reception rooms, full double glazing and oil fired central heating.
Outside, Hackpen Mill Cottage caters well for entertaining, with a superb decked sun terrace set into the hill in the lower area of the grounds, overlooking the river and taking full advantage of the seclusion and peace of the setting. Within the grounds there are two barns, ideal for storage and a car port for two vehicles, as well as plenty of parking. One of the barns (7.3m x 8.17m), a short step to the west of the Cottage, may have annexe potential, subject to relevant consents.
The property lies about half a mile from Ashill, a quiet village with a popular local pub and chapel. Located on the flank of the Blackdown Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are many fine walks, bridle paths and mountain biking opportunities locally. The larger village of Uffculme is nearby, with a more extensive range of amenities including the renowned secondary school, Uffculme School.
To conclude, the quick access to the M5, rail links and Exeter International Airport, make the area very popular with commuters seeking convenient travel options whilst living in the tranquil and beautiful Mid Devon countryside.
