The Property.
Castle Hill Cottage is a detached period residence, standing in an elevated, yet sheltered position, with south-easterly views over the village to the field beyond. The property is thought to date back to early-mid 19th century, when it formed three cottages. In the early part of the 20th century, the cottages were converted into one house. Interestingly, it has not been on the open market since 1896, when the three cottages were sold at auction in The Masons Arms and bought by the owner of the popular public house!

Castle Hill Cottage is traditionally built from local stone, with a particularly handsome mellow Beerstone front elevation. The property is not listed, but sits within a Conservation Area and has been meticulously restored, improved and creatively extended under its current vendor's lengthy ownership. Whilst retaining a wealth of character features - including a large stone fireplace with wood burner and window seats in the sitting room - all the windows have been replaced with handmade wooden double-glazed units and the kitchen fully refitted. Extra accommodation has been created in the extension, which is designed across two levels, with a mezzanine and en-suite shower.
This room, which is currently being used as a bedroom, has a range of potential uses depending on one's needs.

The house has a feeling of lightness and airiness, unusual in a period cottage property, owing to its hillside position and large windows. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, the principal of which also has access through to the large family bath and shower room.

Gardens.
Castle Hill Cottage's south-easterly aspect and mature gardens, falling away from the house, create an attractive and colourful setting. The cottage has a pedestrian right of way, which leads through a wooden gate to a large paved terrace immediately in front of the house. A path leads down through the garden, which is laid principally to lawn with a splendid old apple tree, to a second, sheltered terrace leading from the extension.

Further down, there is a raised deck area for catching the last of the evening sun, a kitchen garden with espalier fruit trees and a number of useful timber sheds. At the bottom of the garden there is a studio, with heating, telephone, and internet connection.

Situation.
Castle Hill Cottage is situated in the picturesque village of Branscombe and lies at the easterly end of its long village street, a short, easy walk from its glorious wide pebble beach. Branscombe is undoubtedly one of East Devon's most charming coastal villages, nestled within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and located on the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline, famous for its walks, high cliffs and dramatic scenery.
The village benefits from two popular public houses, a tennis court, playing fields, an ancient and very pretty parish church, and an Ofsted-rated Good primary school. The renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top mixed state schools, is just 4 miles away.
Branscombe has the dual advantage of lying in one of East Devon's most sought after and unspoilt areas, whilst still enjoying easy access to all the region's amenities. The market town of Honiton is 10 miles away and has an extensive range of shops, schools and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline train station on the Exeter to London Waterloo line. The premier coastal resort of Sidmouth, with its handsome Regency front and esplanade, is 6 miles along the coast, whilst Exeter, Devon's County Town, is 19 miles away and also provides a range of shops and facilities, as well as access to the M5 and an international airport.
