DESCRIPTION Beautifully converted 18th Century Threshing Mill and adjoining Medieval Linhay in a lovely rural south facing setting. A fabulous large five bedroom home, currently used as house plus holiday cottage. Lovely gardens and grounds, pasture paddocks, garage block, artists studio and workshop.

Lower Torr Mill and Little Barn have been extensively and very sympathetically rebuilt by the current owners over 17 years. Although the property can be occupied as one large and very comfortable home, it is currently used as two residences, one of which is let as a holiday cottage providing a useful income. The property sits within its' own land, extending to just under three acres. As well as the residences, a large stone built garage block with artists' studio above has been developed, in addition to a workshop in a further stone barn. The gardens are very well stocked with a number of specimen plants and trees. A vegetable garden, orchard and stream bordered wild garden and woodland add to its' charm. The two pasture paddocks are well fenced and provided with water and would be ideal for equestrian or smallholding uses.
 

SITUATION The property is located off a very quiet Parish road just outside the village of Kingston, with its pretty winding streets and old Inn. In many ways it occupies an ideal location between Kingston and Modbury. Kingston is an unspoilt picturesque village situated close to the South Devon coast. The village has a thriving community centred around the delightful Dolphin Inn and Parish Church of St James. As well as being wonderfully rural, Kingston is just a short drive from the golden sands of Wonwell Beach situated at the mouth of the truly beautiful Erme Estuary.

The Georgian town of Modbury some four miles away is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is well supplied with many independent food shops to include a butchers, delicatessen, florist, post office together with art and gift shops along with warm and inviting inns and restaurants. The town has a health centre, opticians, dentist, pharmacy and veterinary surgery as well as a parish church and an exceptional primary school. Bigbury Golf Club is 2 ½ miles away.

A further entrance with lots of parking gives access to the Parish road and would very easily accommodate stables or agricultural sheds.
