Churchstow is a pleasant village with its own general store, village inn and church. It is just a mile or so to the north west of Kingsbridge - the Capital of the South Hams which itself lies at the head of the Salcombe estuary and offers an excellent and varied range of shops and local facilities which include a health centre/ cottage hospital, an outstanding secondary school and a sports centre. It is only some 6 miles or so from Salcombe and is also within easy reach of the seaside villages of Bantham, Bigbury, Thurlestone and South Milton.


We understand that the property was built in the late 1970's using traditional methods and it is finished with smooth-rendered and whitened external elevations beneath a tiled roof. Extended in the mid-1990's, it has since been updated and refurbished by the current owners and it now provides a stunning home with superbly presented accommodation

The overriding feeling throughout the property is one of space and light, derived from the fact that most of the principal rooms have large windows which allow them to take advantage of the south-westerly rear aspect.

The stunning living room is a particular feature of the property: measuring nearly 40' in length, this open plan, triple-aspect room would be a joy for families, or for entertaining. The kitchen area is fitted with an extensive range of bespoke units having black granite worktops as well as an Aga and a module which provides an additional two ovens whilst the sitting area has a fireplace with wood-burning stove.

There is ample scope to provide a dedicated dining room, if required, by converting bedroom 3 from its current use. All five of the bedrooms are doubles, with the master of course having its own facilities (dressing room and well-appointed bathroom) as well as direct access to the terrace.

Externally, the property sits well within its own extensive grounds which are predominantly lawned for ease of maintenance but also nicely landscaped with a wealth of mature plants and shrubs.
