Olive House, Sands Road, Slapton

Olive House is a beautifully presented cottage situated in the heart of the village of Slapton. The deceptively spacious property is bursting with many character features throughout including fireplace features, beamed ceilings and stained glass windows. The property is currently being used as a holiday let, and would also be an ideal lock up or main family home.

On entering Olive House you begin at the entrance hallway with cloakroom. From here you can access the beautiful lounge with wood-burning stove inset in a stone fireplace with wooden lintel, wooden panelled alcove with shelving and painted beamed ceiling. Following into the dining room there is a feature stone fireplace with bricked alcove and a wooden panelled alcove with shelving. From the immaculately presented dining room there is a doorway to the handmade wooden cottage style kitchen with sink and drainer, integrated dishwasher, cooker, grill, electric hob and extractor above. The is also an alcove for a fridge freezer. The sun room with handmade wooden cottage style cupboards houses the tumble dryer and washing machine with a built-in wooden bench providing storage beneath. Sliding doors open to the low maintenance garden, a great outside space to sit and relax.

From the main hallway, steps lead down to a secondary front entrance door with a boot room area providing storage for shoes and coats. The current vendors have converted the basement area into a fourth double bedroom with quirky recessed shelving areas and an en-suite shower room and an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank and oil fired boiler. Upstairs is the third double bedroom affording a double aspect with sink and stained glass feature window, a family bathroom with bath and blue painted wooden panelling and a shower room with shower cubicle. Four steps lead up to the second double bedroom with storage cupboard, wooden panelled cupboard housing sink, bay window with feature stained glass, part wooden panelled wall which also provides a feature shelf. Main bedroom affording countryside views and an en-suite shower room.

The property benefits from a private rear garden with sunny patio area and raised grassed area with mature shrubs. There is a store to the rear of the garden along with the location of the oil tank.

Slapton has a thriving community, and is home to two Public Houses, an independent community shop, the village Hall and the Church. Less than a mile away the beautiful pebble beach of Slapton Sands can be found along with the freshwater nature reserve of Slapton Ley.
