The Property
Kernborough Grange offers all of the delights of rural living, but is just a few miles from the popular destination of Kingsbridge, and just two miles from some fabulous, clean, beaches. Although it has gone through a name change over the years, this was the original farmhouse for this beautiful hamlet - thus it could quite possibly be the oldest home here. The accommodation is classical by design with a full size eat-in kitchen, followed by a lounge, a dining room and a study. The first floor features four bedrooms, with an en-suite to the master room. Two of the other rooms enjoy vanity units, and it has a well equipped house bathroom. Other niceties include a ground floor cloakroom, a utility room and a double garage. The outside space is sublime... there's a slightly annexed (directly opposite) paddock, that is used for parking, is substantial and could easily take a motorhome, a boat or multiple vehicles, the attached rear garden also offers a perfect combination of shelter, privacy and seclusion. This garden is low maintenance, being mostly lawned. The whole property is in impeccable condition with its owners taking great care in bringing it up to its current standard and maintaining it. Historically speaking, this home has had an interesting life, the present owner has some original documents showing the historical provenance of this home.

This home also has the option of a two acre paddock with a pond within.

There are two entrance doors to Kernborough Grange, one opens out into the dining room the second (and most commonly used) opens out into the kitchen/ breakfast room.

Kitchen / Diner
16'4 x 12'1
The quintessential cottage style kitchen with a range of bespoke pine fitted units with inset block tiling for work surfaces and splash areas. There's a one and a half bowl stainless steel sink unit with a monobloc mixer tap over. An oil fired AGA with twin heat plates and a double oven dominates the room. A fitted range of larder and storage cupboards with more work surfaces are opposite. This room easily accommodates a six seater breakfast table. There is an exposed beamed ceiling offering much character and a front aspect casement window.

Utility Room
Of good size with a rear aspect casement window offering much natural lighting. A Belfast sink sits atop a pine cupboard, next to space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine. There's a built in pine door fronted larder and plenty of additional space for a fridge and freezer etc. The Worcester oil fired boiler is also set within this room serving all of the hot water and heating needs for this home. A stable door offers access out to the rear garden and patio areas.

Downstairs Cloakroom
Side aspect casement window. Low level W.C. and an adjacent wash hand basin.

17'4 x 16'11
A beautiful room with twin front aspect windows. The focal point is a magnificent stone fireplace with an inset multi-fuel burner set atop a flagstone hearth, an aged wooden lintel completes the scene. The flooring is Canadian maple, and I'm informed by the currents owners that it was reclaimed from a Devon gym. There's an exposed beam ceiling set on inset granite ties. There are two double panel radiators with thermostatic controllers and a door leading to the stairway and study.

Dining Room
19'3 x 10'7
The original front door is accessed from this room. There's dual aspect casement windows, front and rear. Double panelled radiator with a thermostatic controller.

10'10 x 6'6
Leading off from the beautiful slate stairway, there's a side aspect casement window (wth an attractive deep slate sill) offering good natural lighting. BT point. Hardwood flooring.

First Floor Landing
Accessed by a very impressive stone and local slate stairway, lit with a mid-point casement window. This landing caters to a chaise longue, and features exposed beams and a double door airing cupboard that has a factory lagged immersion heater and slatted shelving within. Double panelled radiator with a thermostatic controller and doors to:

Master Bedroom
16'6 x 12'8
A very light and airy room with dual aspect deep sill casement windows to the front and side. It has a built in double wardrobe, and a natural wardrobe recess beside an attractive exposed slate and granite feature wall. This characterful room also enjoys partial coving and a dado rail. Twin double panelled radiator with thermostatic controller.

Master En-suite
Rear aspect deep sill casement window. The en-suite features a three quarter length panelled bath with a fully plumbed in shower over. There is also a low level W.C. and a wash hand basin beside it. A double panel radiator and laminate flooring finish it off.

Bedroom Two
13'4 x 11'4
Front aspect deep sill casement window. A vanity unit is fully plumbed in for guest convenience. There's a fitted double wardrobe and a single shelved wardrobe next to it. Double panel radiator with a thermostatic control.

Bedroom Three
12'4 x 9'10
Front aspect deep sill casement window. Again featuring a built in double wardrobe with a smaller shelved wardrobe next to it and a plumbed in wash hand basin atop a small vanity unit. Twin wall lighting and a double panelled radiator with a thermostatic controller. Exposed beams to a very slightly vaulted ceiling.

Bedroom Four
13'1 x 8'3
Side aspect casement window with inset window seat. A good sized room that currently houses a single, but could easily take a double bed. Double panelled radiator with a thermostatic controller. A small decorative leaded and stain glass panel peeks into the hallway and there's exposed beams to a very slightly vaulted ceiling.


The front of the property enjoys a stepped terrace that runs almost the width of the frontage. There are various well stocked planters and herbaceous shrubbery.

Annexed Front paddock:

Directly opposite the home is a small paddock that offers five bar gate access into an enclosed mostly lawned area that is very private and barely overlooked. There's a significant sized greenhouse and a building offering miscellaneous storage. There's ample room within this compound to park several vehicles, a caravan, boat or large motorhome.

Rear garden:

Running the full width to the rear of the property is a Yorkshire and granite patio area (the granite making its way from the Plymouth dockyards) that offers both sunny, private and sheltered areas for outside dining opportunities.

There's steps down to the rear of the garage and a covered bin/log store area. Steps lead up to a small grassy terrace offering sloped access to a reasonably level rear garden. There are a multitude of well stocked flower beds and borders offering a very serene floral experience.

The rear lawned area is split into two generalised areas; the first is cut back offering a formal lawn with apple and plum trees set within. The rear portion is fairly level offering the potential for a small paddock area - both areas are bordered by timber fencing with wire loop inserts on one side and tall herbaceous bushes and trees on the other.

It is very private, offers 100% seclusion and also backs onto open farmland as far as the eye can see - it's idyllic. It's a generous plot size, but not overwhelmingly so.

Double Garage
The double barn door access garage is 17'7 deep by 22 wide, narrowing down to 15'3 at the entrance. It's substantial in build, dry, and offers eaves storage space and access through to the garden area.

A very pleasant drive - From Kingsbridge proceed along the A379 in the direction of Chillington. Passing through the narrows, where only one car at a time can pass, turn immediately right into Tan Pits Lane. Ignore a turning to the right and left, drive for approx 80yards to a fork and take the left fork despite the sign post suggesting you take the right fork. Having taken the left fork proceed until you reach the second crossroads where you turn right. After some 400 yards you begin to pass houses and Kernborough Grange is to be found on your right after several sharp bends in approx a further 300 yards.
