"Thatched Cottage on outskirts of picturesque village"
Grade II listed Nelsons Watch comes with a story of its origins plus all that you would expect of a quintessential thatched Devon cottage. The cottage was named by an elderly lady who sold what was believed to be a watch belonging to Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson and she subsequently bought the cottage with the proceeds. This romantic tale fits the charming two bedroom cottage in Galmpton, sitting behind its white picket fence, only three quarters of a mile from the sandy coves of Hope Cove.
The much loved family holiday home is coming to the market just in time for this year’s holiday season and whilst the vendors have many fond memories of holidays spent here they feel it is now time for someone else to enjoy all that it offers. The cottage comes with an option on the carefully selected furnishings chosen to fit the dimensions of the interior.
The love and attention lavished on the cottage to bring it into the 21st century is evident in the choice of oak used for recessed cupboards, ceiling beams and staircase. Not to mention the inclusion of an extensive and thorough damp proofing, updated flue and cowl to the log burner, new electrics and even the thatch received a tender touch.
Character features greet you from the thatched porch and stable front door to deep window seats, Inglenook fireplace, ceiling beams and quarry tiles in the kitchen. As for enjoying the outside of the cottage, a roof terrace offers a sitting out spot to glimpse the sea and sit long into the night under the stars.
If it’s a cosy cottage you’re hankering after then Nelsons Watch on the market at £390,000 is ship-shape and ready to go.
