Jaspers & The Smithy are a delightful pair of period properties situated in the sought after Devonshire hamlet of Eastleigh, enjoying fabulous countryside views. The property has been sympathetically renovated and extended over the last 14 years by the current owner creating a spacious period family home that would suit those seeking for a property with separate accommodation, either for a family member or to simply holiday let or full time letting providing a helpful income. The property presents stone and rendered elevations beneath a slate tiled roof with a pair of wooden double gates to the extensive parking area and beautiful gardens to the rear. The accommodation, with approximate dimensions, is more clearly identified on the accompanying floorplan.
Internally, the property has all the period features you would expect from a cottage of this era such as exposed beams, stonework and original wood stripped latch doors, now combined with some fantastic modern refinements such as UPVC double glazing, new boiler, contemporary kitchen and bathroom to name a few. Within Jaspers there are two cosy reception rooms with a wood burner in the sitting room, a long 20ft kitchen/breakfast room and WC with four double bedrooms, a 'Jack and Jill' en-suite and family bathroom on the first floor.THE SMITHY
Linked to the property is 'The Smithy' a completely self-contained barn conversion comprising open plan living room/ kitchen/ dining area with vaulted ceilings and original beams. The hallway leads to two decent sized bedrooms, modern shower room and large storage area. There is also the potential, subject to planning permissions (STPP), to extend into the roof space of the barn which is currently used as storage to create additional accommodation.
The Smithy would be ideal for a dependant relative, young adult, home office or to let out for additional income, if required.OUTSIDE
