Situation And Description: - Chillington is a thriving village with its own pub, post office/general stores and centrally-located health centre. There are excellent primary schools in the neighbouring villages of Stokenham and West Charleton. It is some 4 miles from Kingsbridge, a market town at the head of the Salcombe estuary with an excellent range of shops and local facilities which include a health centre/ cottage hospital, an outstanding secondary school and a sports centre. The sailing town of Salcombe, with its wonderful beaches and many shops and boutiques, is just a 20 minute drive away, the beach at Torcross is just 5 minutes to the east and there is a slipway one mile away at Frogmore, which is situated at the head of a tidal creek off the Kingsbridge estuary.
We understand that the oldest part of the house was originally known as Holly Cottage. In the 1920's, it was extensively enlarged to provide a Gentlemans residence and has been used since then variously as a small country house hotel and then a large family home.
In 2001, The White House was painstakingly and sensitively restored to its original purpose, creating a truly exceptional family home of beautifully proportioned rooms, quiet garden views, and spacious living areas and in 2009, it was established by the vendors as a boutique Bed and Breakfast. It now affords impeccably-presented and particularly well-proportioned accommodation of exceptional character which really has to be viewed internally in order to be fully appreciated.
The property fronts onto a delightful mature garden of manageable proportions with sheltered sun terraces and wide lawns, complimented by well-stocked herbaceous borders and shrubs and many specimen trees. There is a separate carport and garaging as well as a detached stone/slate which affords much scope for many uses.

Please Refer To The Attached Floor Plan And The Accommodation Briefly Comprises: - The property is accessed via an entrance porch which leads to the RECEPTION ENTRANCE HALL which, in common with much of the ground floor accommodation has Oak flooring.
Off to the left is a delightful SNUG, which has a period marble fireplace and a bay window which overlooks the front walled garden, whilst on the other side of the entrance hall is the DINING ROOM/TV/CHILL OUT ROOM and adjoining en-suite GROUND FLOOR BEDROOM.
The DRAWING ROOM is a beautiful dual aspect room with moulded ceiling cornices and a splendid marble fireplace with ornate grate and hearth. Arched windows allow light to flood in whilst French doors open onto the terrace.
Located centrally is an INNER HALL with a bar and CLOAKROOM, which has a two-piece suite in white with a Duravit hand wash basin. Doors lead out from the bar on to the terrace whilst further doors lead to the superb triple aspect GARDEN ROOM which has a vaulted ceiling with exposed roof trusses and timbers and four sets of glazed French double doors which open onto the terrace and garden.
The KITCHEN has a slate-bed floor and will be sold fully equipped for commercial use. A central island unit has a marble worktop. Space and plumbing for dishwasher, space for fridge/freezer. Windows to side aspect. WALK IN LARDER with storage cupboards and shelving.
Accessed from the kitchen is the UTILITY ROOM and walk-in larder and there are further doors to the office and outside to the rear courtyard.

A staircase with a wonderful oak balustrade around the stairwell rises to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING which has south-facing windows overlooking the garden. Built-in storage cupboard and large airing cupboard with factory lagged hot water cylinders, slatted shelving.
All FIVE BEDROOMS on this floor are extremely well-proportioned and have their own facilities, with white Duravit suites whilst the two front-facing rooms enjoy delightful views over the terrace and garden.
Also on the first floor is a good-sized LAUNDRY ROOM, with space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer.
A spiral staircase leads up to the SECOND FLOOR, which comprises a small FLATLET with bedroom, beautifully fitted bathroom and sitting area.

A DETACHED STONE/SLATE STORE has a bathroom and offers obvious scope for conversion (subj to pp).
The GARDENS are truly beautiful and a real feature of the property. South-facing and extensively walled, they are laid predominantly to lawn but with beautifully stocked borders and mature trees including a magnificent copper beech. Immediately adjoining the property and accessed also from the principal reception rooms is an extensive stone-paved terrace which also extends to the side of the house.
