The property

Primrose Cottage is a beautiful Grade II listed terrace nestled in a row of nine, opposite the church in the picturesque village of Kenton.

Ideally located on the Exe Estuary, with access to the delights of Dawlish and Exeter, this redbrick, former workers' cottage offers an immaculate interior, as featured in TV's 'Homes Under the Hammer'.

The cottage is full of character, dating back to the 19th century, with many original features retained in the framework.

Entrance is gained from Church Street into the first sitting room, which is uplifted by the exposed brick wall and woodburner resting within the inglenook.

Relax and unwind in either lounge, with the warmth of the fire to keep you company.

There is a dining area in the second living room, which leads on to a quiet sun room overlooking the sunny courtyard.

This is a lovely spot to enjoy a cup of tea or take your book for a read.

The skylight brings in lots of welcoming natural light.

Two steps take you down to the kitchen, which is fully equipped and adds style to the property, with under cupboard lighting and sleek wooden worktops.

There are two bedrooms upstairs; a double and a single, followed by a bright and sunny family bathroom.

A back door leads from the kitchen, down a gravelled lane, to an enclosed garden at the rear.

There is a shed storing all the garden essentials, including patio furniture and a barbecue for alfresco dining.

Kenton is nestled on the fringes of the stunning 95-mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, with many family-friendly attractions adding much appeal.

Powderham Castle, set in the outskirts of the village, hosts many family events during the summer months and is open all-year-round to the public for tours of the grounds.

Dawlish town and beach offer a lovely day out, as do Haldon Forest, with its cycle hire and Dartmoor National Park with its vast moorland and rich history.

Exeter has its imposing cathedral and historic quayside and there is plenty of fishing, birdwatching and watersports in the surrounding areas.

A wonderful retreat in a region of wild, natural beauty!
