A STUNNING country residence set in almost THREE ACRES of formal gardens and rolling parkland. A stunning family home, beautifully presented light accommodation, annexe potential, 3708 sq ft of space, private grounds, extensive garaging and outbuildings, delightful views. EPC Band D.

Situation - Set in the beauty of the rolling South Hams countryside, an area richly deserving of it recognition as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with Dartmoor National Park to the north and the stunning rugged coastline with hidden coves and harbour to the south, famed for its mild climate and crystal clear waters with glorious riding, peaceful coastal walks and excellent beaches, Combe House certain represents a fine lifestyle investment.
The house is located on the outskirts of the village of Brixton, which is within walking distance, and has a number of everyday amenities including an 'outstanding' local primary school, as well as a choice of delightful country walks. It is approximately 5 miles east of the historic ocean city of Plymouth which offers extensive cultural, recreational and educational facilities including three theatres, new shopping centre, many sporting facilities and a fine university. The Barbican area has retail art galleries, numerous bars and eating places including the Barbican Kitchen and River Cottage Canteen at Royal William Yard. The port has regular cross channel ferry services to Brittany and Northern Spain. There is also a mainline railway service from Plymouth to London Paddington, taking just over three hours. The cathedral city and county town of Exeter is approximately 40 miles away with superb shopping, educational and recreational facilities and an international airport with three daily flights to London City Airport.
Unlike some of the South Hams, good transport links via the A379 and A38 are within easy reach from this wonderful family home. The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are a short distance away at the mouth of the river Yealm, noted for its beauty and fabulous sailing, popular for both cruising and racing.

Description - Combe House occupies a commanding position with views over its own glorious gardens and the green fields beyond. Architecturally designed to sit comfortably on its plot providing privacy whilst maintaining good gardens and maximising the fine views. The house is conventionally laid out with the reception accommodation to the ground floor. The approach to the house is through secure, remotely-operated electronic gates opening onto a sweeping driveway leading to a generous roundabout area which provides ample off road parking for numerous vehicles or a boat, in addition to the extensive garaging.
Crossing the threshold the welcoming entrance hall sets the tone for the rest of the property and leads into the principal reception accommodation. The present owners' high quality design and finishes are immediately apparent and extend throughout.
The property is set in almost three acres of formal gardens and rolling parkland.

Accommodation - Constructed around the art deco movement of the 1930s, local legend states for a naval officer and his Russian princess wife. The house was extensively modernised and extended around a decade ago, to create impressive space extending to around 3708 square feet excluding the extensive garaging and outbuildings.
This is a most impressive five bedroom significant property, offering flexibility and bright space. The interior is bathed in natural light by its large picture windows which also maximise the views. A clever use of space allows for easy entertaining and accommodates comfortable living. The house was designed with a view to accommodate an elderly relative and could be easily converted to provide this, should you not which to convert one of the extensive outbuildings (subject to permissions).

Gardens & Grounds - The grounds, whilst extensive, extend to 2.822 acres (1.142 ha), are easily to maintain and are mature, they are largely lawned and are brilliantly safe and secure for children and animals. Along the southern boundary is mature woodland.

Garaging & Outbuildings - The house would particularly suit a car enthusiast with garaging for at least four vehicles in two separate buildings. The main garage block (quadruple) is constructed over two levels with potential home office above, or just storage as it is today. To the far western extreme of the grounds is a further very large single garage with workshop beyond.
