Situation & Description: - Kingston is a delightful village, off the beaten track but with its own well-known 16th century inn, church and vibrant community.

St Anns Chapel, with its general store/Post Office is only 2 miles away whilst excellent shopping is available at Modbury and Kingsbridge, some 4 and 9 miles distant respectively.

We understand that the property was built for the vendors in the mid 90s. It has a timber inner frame - with all of the heating/insulation benefits associated with it - and is finished with part rendered/ part slate-hung external elevations, off-set by attractive faced Cornish stone features, the whole beneath a slate roof.

The accommodation is fully double glazed with uPVC frames and K glass units and oil-fired centrally heated with radiators throughout. The property occupies a splendid, elevated position on the fringes of the village from where wonderful, open views are enjoyed over the surrounding countryside.
