Offering peace and seclusion this charming and very pretty detached house with its adjoining cottage sits down a quiet country lane on the outskirts of Galmpton, a thriving village in South Devon, and is only a short distance from the beautiful River Dart. The property benefits from Superfast Broadband

Dating back from the 16th Century, Port Hill House has oodles of charm and character with exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, and upstairs, vaulted ceilings. On entering Port Hill House you arrive in a delightful sitting room with at its heart an exposed, stone fireplace with a wood burner. Next door is a charming dining room which has a revealed stone wall, another original stone fireplace and also a solid wood burner which services 6 radiators. Throughout the ground floor, there is honey coloured travertine flooring and underfloor heating.

Off the dining room is a lovely farmhouse kitchen with a recessed oil fired Aga that also supplies the hot water to the whole house. With a mixture of old and new this spacious and cosy kitchen has a range of cream wood shaker style units, solid oak work surfaces and an inset Belfast sink. Additional cooking facilities are catered for by a LPG gas five burner hob. More beamed ceilings and terracotta flooring completes the picture. Leading towards the garden there is the cloak room, a useful utility room and back door to the garden.

Upstairs is approached by the stunning original Devon stone and granite stair well. Here there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one with a traditional claw and ball freestanding bath. On the wide landing there are fitted cupboards for linen and storage and access to the garden via a small decked bridge.

The front of the main house has a small stone walled garden with a well-established white wisteria. To the far end of Barnacle Cottage is a good sized gravelled driveway area with access to a double door garage and further off road parking.

The main garden is at the back of the house and consists of a sloping lawn that is approx. half of an acre in size and is bordered by woodland. It has borders stocked with flowering plants as well as some fruit trees. There are three terraced areas with sheds and at the top of the garden there are many spots from where to enjoy the superb views and to catch the sun throughout the day.

Barnacle Cottage Attached to Port Hill House is Barnacle Cottage. Previously a pottery barn and now superbly converted into a separate and charming home. Being right next door to the main house the current owner saw an opportunity for income potential and has since built up a successful holiday letting business (4* star visit Britain) with many international visitors looking for a traditional Devon experience.

Open Plan Living Exactly what you would hope for, this beautifully presented open plan living room has a cleverly designed kitchen and traditional features of exposed stone and beams. The kitchen area is well appointed with modern fitted units and appliances. The room has a fitted under stairs cupboard for coats and storage and there is a hardwood enclosed tread spiral style staircase to the first floor. Like Port Hill House the flooring is Travertine stone with underfloor heating. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one double and 1 single, a modern bathroom, with more exposed walls and beams, casement windows and lovely views from all the windows over the valley. Off Road Parking Shared parking is offered to both the main house and cottage with a gravelled driveway for several vehicles, enclosed by natural stone walling. Double doors access to two garages and workshop with power and lighting.

Both homes are in very good condition throughout and sit on beautiful grounds of half an acre offering great privacy and seclusion in a conservation area.
Situation Nearby the historical village of Galmpton, a thriving coastal and picturesque village is centred around the Marina with a general store, post office, butcher and a pub. It borders Torbay and South Hams, and is within easy access to Brixham, Torquay, Dartmouth and Totnes. It's only a mile to the sandy beach of Broadsands with its many nearby coves, coastal paths, river ferries and the National Trust's Greenway House. For families, Churston Grammar school and a popular primary school are nearby. From Totnes there is the main line to Paddington.
