Located just a mile or so from Churchstow, and within easy reach of the golden sandy beaches of Thurlestone and Bantham, The Coach House is ideally placed to enjoy the best of the lifestyle available in the South Hams. Nestled in a peaceful end-of-lane position, the property looks out over rolling countryside and is in what is truly a special location.

The property has been in the same family ownership since conversion in 1992 and, having undergone a program of improvements during that time it is now offered in excellent order throughout. Of particular note is the superb contemporary family kitchen, and character 23' sitting room with imposing feature fireplace with woodburner, perfect for cosy winter evenings.

The four bedroomed accommodation is adaptable, spacious, and ideal for growing family, with the addition of a superb detached home office offering further scope for working from home, or possible income potential subject to consent.
