The perfect chocolate box property, in the quaint village of Loxhore, complete with super fast broadband for modern living.

Full of character, quirky, charming and idyllic with little touches of yesteryear in an undeviating world of planning permission restricted uniformity.

Formerly the village blacksmith's dwelling, Two Chimneys is a detached, two storey 3 Bedroom stone cottage beneath a slate roof and of period origin. There are also two detached stone outbuildings (one of which is believed to be a former toll house), and large detached timber garage, plus additional parking and approximately three quarters of an acre of garden.

All buildings have undergone sympathetic and loving renovations by the owner over the last couple of years.
The house, buildings and main garden area are being sold FREEHOLD. Whilst Two Chimneys is being offered FREEHOLD the garage and land immediately around it is to be offered, as part of the sale, on the remainder of a 99 year lease assignable only to the owner of Two Chimneys.

Loxhore is made up of three hamlets, including Loxhore itself, Lower Loxhore and Loxhore Cott. Two Chimneys is situated within the latter, which comprises a small community adjacent to the Arlington Court Estate, now in the ownership of The National Trust. The National Trust own quite a number of the properties in the hamlet and others are in private ownership. Loxhore offers a village hall, church and chapel. The nearest village store is at Bratton Fleming, about 3 miles. Barnstaple, North Devon's regional centre is about 6 miles, and houses the area's main business, commercial, leisure and shopping venues. North Devon's rugged coastline, including the popular resorts of Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton and Woolacombe are all within about half an hour's drive. Blackmoor Gate, providing access to Exmoor is about 8 miles. At Barnstaple, the North Devon Link Road provides access to Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway in about 45 minutes, where there is also access to Tiverton Parkway (London Paddington in just over 2 hours). We understand that there is a school bus pickup point close by and that free access is available nearby to roam part of the Arlington Estate, ideal for rambling or dog walking.
