Osborne Cottage Lower Street West Alvington Kingsbridge
Nestling in a sheltered corner of the popular village of West Alvington this quintessential English Cottage has such charm with features bringing a warmth of character which include a fine inglenook fireplace and side stone stairs to a more recent addition of a magnificent Library/Living Room flowing effortlessly to the private south facing garden. Each room has an individual appeal from the lovely snug Sitting Room through the cottage Kitchen with Aga and room for a family table to the spacious bright Library/Living Room. The ground floor continues off a side Hallway to a really charming wood panelled Study, an excellent hideaway for a writer to gather inspiration. The charm continues to the first floor providing two excellent Bedrooms and a superb Bathroom in which to quietly soak up time. In the garden though there is the most amazing round stone built office featuring beautiful timber features and woodburner which simply has to be seen to be appreciated as does the cottage as a whole.
The original cottage is of traditional stone construction with later modern additions, the whole being under slate roofs. Painted wooden double glazed windows are fitted to the original cottage to maintain the period integrity with the Library/Living Room having coated aluminium bi-fold doors. The immaculately presented centrally heated accommodation comprises:

Energy Efficiency & Environmental Impact
The rear fenced private south facing garden is a delight with stone terrace leading onto a lawn surrounded by flowers, flowering shrubs in beds and central tree. Off to the side is a circular stone water fountain feature in a pond surrounded by decorative slate chippings, flowers and climbers. The garden continues to a vegetable area with timber shed and raised beds behind the garage.
From the rear terrace steps lead down to a walled pathway taking you to a round building under a slate roof forming an amazing Office, which in itself is a work of art having a diameter of 2.71 (8’10”). The roof is boarded with all timbers exposed and the elm floor of narrow boards in the design of sunburst out from a central ‘log’ is an example of the attention to detail. This theme of the warmth of wood continues with a built in desk and bookshelves. There are spotlights, telephone point and from under the desk a pull out shelf for a computer keyboard. Don’t worry about chilly winter days or evening for there is a Yukon Woodburner.
Charming cottage, original features of warmth and character combining modern bright living in village location. Energy Rating - D.
