Located in the centre of Lympstone village, Osborne House is a substantial and versatile Grade II Listed property with an interesting history. This 4 bedroom period property with old shop front, along with a one bedroom converted former coach house & stable. The property was renovated in previous years by the current owners to create a family home with a variety of potential uses. Accessed from The Strand into the garden via double wooden gates, the property is formed of two parts, with the main house on one side and the former coach house to the other having been converted into an annexe or holiday let.
In the main house, a glass front door leads into a hallway with WC and storage cupboards and to the rear there is a good-sized kitchen/dining room with AGA and patio doors opening into the garden. There is a snug and to the front the former shop, now used as a games room although it could be easily converted back to a shop again or simply as another reception room.
On the first floor, at the front is a large double bedroom with period fireplace, a second double bedroom looking out over the rear and a family bathroom with WC. Stairs rise again to the top floor where there are two further double bedrooms, one with lovely views along The Strand towards the village centre and estuary beyond.
Converted in 2005 is the one bedroom annex, originally a carriage builders workshop and stable. On the ground floor is a spacious reception room with vaulted ceiling and a wood burning stove, a kitchen with Belfast sink and concealed pipework for a gas hob. There is also a large wet room with underfloor heating and a WC. Upstairs there is a galleried landing plus a double bedroom.
The garden is private and a good size for the centre of the village with a decked seating area, level lawn and a large shed with power. A gate and path at the rear lead to the village carpark where it is possible to obtain a permit for parking.
Agents Note: The Land Registry title documents indicate that there is a Quit Rent/Rent Charge of 2 shillings p.a. dated September 1901, and as far as the owners are aware this has not been collected in the last 30 years.
