Lower Torr Mill is situated in a tranquil rural hamlet in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty under half a mile from the village of Kingston, a quintessential South Hams village with thatched cottages, a public house and church. The small town of Modbury is about 3 miles and provides a good range of everyday convenience shops and independent stores, including an art gallery.

For schooling, there is a well regarded primary school at Modbury and Kingsbridge has a good range of retail, educational and cultural facilities and the highly regarded KCC (Kingsbridge Community College).

The property is under a mile from the delightful Wonwell Beach and access to the stunning South Hams coastline. There are many places of outstanding natural beauty close by including Bigbury-On-Sea, a delightful coastal village famous for its excellent beaches and the highly acclaimed Burgh Island Hotel. For golfing enthusiasts Bigbury and Thurlestone have highly rated golf courses. The A38 Devon Expressway is about 10 miles and provides easy access to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter.


Lower Torr Mill is a conversion of great imagination and care and offers wonderfully light accommodation while retaining charming features from the ancient farm buildings which greatly enhance the character and charm of the property. The accommodation is flexibly arranged and is presented as a 3 bedroom main house with self-contained 2 bedroom wing. The main wing has a magnificent kitchen with floor to ceiling height windows converted from the old threshing mill entrances, allowing light to flood in from both sides and giving access to the terrace. The sitting room has a spectacular chimney breast also enjoyed by the first floor galleried landing accessed via a staircase ascending from the sitting room. There is a wonderful bespoke John Churchill of Capton wood burner and a full height window.

The master bedroom has en suite Jack & Jill bathroom and there are 2 further double bedrooms leading off the main staircase landing. A further bathroom is downstairs along with a cloakroom and garden / laundry room leading off the entrance hall. The east wing has 2 doors from a stone terrace into a lovely open plan living / dining / kitchen area. A cloak / shower room is also the ground floor which could be accessed from the first floor of the main wing. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a delightful paved terrace on the south side from which to sit and enjoy the garden.

The property benefits from a workshop and a double garage with additional storage room, laundry room, cloakroom and artists studio above.

Gardens and Grounds
There are two gated entrances into Lower Torr Mill, both with gravelled turning areas providing plenty of space for parking. The double garage is adorned with campsis grandiflora and there are stone walled beds with a variety of herbaceous shrubs including azalea, viburnum, camellia, mahonia and fig with underplanting of wild strawberries. Steps lead up past the east wing and the workshop through a stone arch to the top garden and the two paddocks beyond, both with mains water. This area of garden is lawned and leads past a fallow kitchen garden, also having mains water, to further lawned areas with the old mill leat stones and a small stream. There is a wooded area with oak, chestnut, alder and hazel, a wild flower area and the old mill pond, now a bog garden. Accessed from the kitchen is a pretty terrace with an open fronted log store.
