From Exe Bridges in Exeter proceed on Okehampton Street on the south side of the river and up over Redhills. At the mini roundabout go straight over and in 1.2 miles enter Whitestone. Within a third of a mile, turn right signposted Halsfordwood and the property can be found down the hill on the right.
Connetts is situated in a sheltered valley with views of unspoilt countryside and woodland, tucked away off a quiet country lane. The small hamlet of Nadderwater is close to the village of Whitestone, which offers a range of clubs and societies for everyone including a book club, pilates and table tennis. Nearby, there is a village hall, church, two local pubs and a bus service. The wonderful Cathedral City of Exeter is just two and a half miles away.
This delightful detached cob cottage has a wealth of character and is set in 1.1 acres of gardens and pasture land with stunning views over woodland and neighbouring countryside. A peaceful setting yet only 2.5 miles from Exeter. Features include exposed beams, an Inglenook fireplace and a conservatory which is used as a dining room with a lovely outlook over the gardens. Outside, and a real asset to the cottage are the gardens, views and surrounding countryside. An enclosed fruit garden has pear, apple and plum trees with various fruit bushes. The majority of the land is pasture with a detached barn, ideal for storing hay and lambing as the current owners have sheep. There is a garage, an off road parking area and a modern detached studio, perfect for art or music.

|AGENTS NOTE|| The vendor advises that the property has the benefit of a WPL Diamond DMS sewage treatment plant which was installed in 2009. The Environment Agency consent to discharge number is NPSWQD007688. The system was last emptied in November 2017 and was serviced in April 2019.|
The vendor advises that there is a bees nest in the chimney, which has been surveyed by camera, by a chimney sweep. We are told that they do not enter the stove, do not affect the flue and are not a fire hazard. Furthermore, their nest is in too awkward a position for a beekeeper to collect the swarm and the only way to remove them would be to destroy them. They have consulted beekeepers and a pest controller who are of the opinion that the bees will swarm to a new home when the Queen bee dies.
|SERVICES|| Mains water and electricity. Private drainage.|
