Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An individual, period property of enormous charm, standing in an elevated location with far reaching views and land of about 2 acres, together with stables and outbuildings.

Situation
Higher Centry is situated a mile to the north of the market town of Kingsbridge, which is situated at the head of the Kingsbridge Estuary. The town offers a variety of shops, restaurants and cafes, as well as good schools, a library, an indoor swimming pool/leisure centre and the South Hams District Hospital. There is an attractive harbour side with
the passenger ferry Rivermaid providing trips around the estuary. There are also several coffee shops. For those who enjoy the outdoors there
are numerous countryside and creekside walks, as well as access to the 630 miles of Devon coastal path nearby, for those seeking both penance
and pleasure.
The Property
Higher Centry is situated on an historic site, as mentioned in the Domesday Book. Dating back to the 1750s, the property has long since changed from the original single storey building built by the
church. Within the last 14 years the property has been thoughtfully and imaginatively extended to create a wonderful, spacious property of considerable character and charm. Vaulted ceilings, impressive fireplaces and a glass floor all add to the appeal, while many rooms enjoy many, far-reaching views over the gardens, grounds and
neighbouring countryside, extending towards the Salcombe estuary.
Higher Centry occupies an elevated and stand-alone position and, whilst having a semi-rural location, it is situated no more than a few minutes from Kingsbridge town. Surrounded by gardens, the property is approached by a gravel drive, culminating before the workshop and stables. There is a 2 acre paddock, which is excellent for horses or other livestock, with parts set aside with young trees.
