SITUATION The land is situated on the south-west side of the town of Modbury in the South Hams area of South Devon. The centre of the town itself is about half a mile away and the magnificent South Hams coastline at Kingston (Wonwell beach and Bigbury Bay) being about 3 miles distant. The larger town of Kingsbridge is about 8 miles to the east and the A38 dual carriageway expressway, connecting to the M5 motorway and national road network, being about 10 miles to the north. 

DESCRIPTION The Kennels and Kennels Meadows are being offered for sale as a whole or in three lots, to suit purchasers' requirements.

By reference to the site plan, the different lots are detailed as follows:- 

LOT 1 As approximately outlined in red on the site plan, the Kennels comprise some general purpose (dilapidated) farm buildings, these having many years ago been used for accommodating livestock, but also in connection with the local hunt.

Access to the buildings is over a compacted hardcore track (which also serves as an access to South West Water Treatment Works), then over a concrete bridge over a brook.

A right is reserved for the buyer of Lots 2 and 3 to come through this lot, for access purposes.

On the south-west side (to the rear) of the buildings is an area of steeply sloping amenity woodland.

A public bridleway/footpath proceeds through this lot and along Cotlass Lane.

There are no services to this lot. 

LOT 2 As approximately outlined in green on the site plan, this area extends to approximately 2.10 acres (0.85 hectares).

In the past this land has been used for accommodating livestock and for grass conservation purposes.

Access to the land may be gained by means of a right of way over the compacted hardcore track and then through Lot 1 into an existing gateway on the south-eastern boundary of Lot 2.

The land has a combination of gentle and moderate north, east and west facing slopes and was all down to grass and is suitable possibly as a pony paddock or for general recreation/amenity purposes (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent). 

LOT 3 As approximately outlined in blue on the site plan, this area extends to a total of some 4.38 acres (1.77 hectares).

Access to the land may be gained either by means of a right of way over the compacted hardcore track coming from an easterly direction and then over Cotlass Lane bridleway or from a westerly direction from Cotlass Farm, again over the public bridleway and then through an existing gateway on the south-western boundary.

The north boundary of this land abutts the stream and, similar to Lot 2 above, offers the potential for use as a pony paddock or general recreation/amenity purposes (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent). 

SPORTING AND MINERAL RIGHTS All sporting and mineral rights are included in the sale, as far as are known. 

GUIDE PRICES Lot 1 - £5,000
Lot 2 - £10,000
Lot 3 - £20,000

Whole: £35,000
