Guide price: £250,000-plus for this five-bedroom thatch cottage in Lower Ball, Cadeleigh
Lower Ball, Cadeleigh, Tiverton EX16
Guide price: £250,000-plus
A whitewashed five-bedroom thatched Devon cottage located in the beautiful Exe Valley is the stuff of summer dreams – and with a guide price of £250,000-plus, this is sure to attract a flock of dreamers to the auction room.

Ball Green is a Grade II-listed detached cottage offering a generous 2,028sq ft of internal space. In need of modernisation, the cottage offers great potential for a new owner to bring to life the period features with a twist of the modern.

While a thatched roof oozes character and charm, it’s worth remembering the upkeep required. Part of this thatch may need some attention and so it would be worth getting an expert opinion.

Outside the quaint cottage look continues with almost half an acre of mature, attractive gardens and a range of brick stores which may offer future potential, subject to consent.

The property is well located near to the popular village of Bickleigh with its excellent school, popular drinking establishments and close proximity to the beautiful River Exe. The M5 offers easy access into London and Tiverton Parkway Railway Station has regular services to Paddington taking about two hours.
