STOKE GABRIEL Stoke Gabriel is a popular and sought after village which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the head of a creek on the River Dart about three miles south-east of Totnes. The older part of the village is in a conservation area near the River and Mill Pool and much of the area is a Coastal Preservation Area. The village has good facilities including a church, primary school, pre-school [2 to 5 yrs], village hall, post office, general stores and two public houses. Buyers see Stoke Gabriel as a lifestyle choice both because of the amenties that it offers and its thriving strong family social life and community spirit, with boating, canoeing and river trips on the River Dart on your doorstep. The village boating association also provides RYA sailing training for children and a year round calendar of boating events. 

THE HOUSE In a quiet cul de sac in a popular Dartside village, 2 Maddicks Orchard is a sizeable house ideal for a family, although it could also suit buyers retiring to South Devon or those looking for a holiday home.

Updated and much improved during the sellers' fifteen years ownership, the house has seen a new kitchen and bathroom, replacement windows and gutters and more recently, a new conservatory and a new boiler. It is now a bright modern and well-appointed family house with two reception rooms, the conservatory, four bedrooms and bath and shower rooms. Above the integral double garage is a fifth bedroom, which the owners use as an office.

The outside has seen improvements too. There's a good sized front garden alongside a drive with room to park six cars. Behind the house, the conservatory overlooks an attractive rectangular garden with a large deck terrace.
