Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This wonderful converted Victorian chapel is a splendid combination of original fittings and superb modern style with a feature made of the soaring vaulted ceilings in the first floor living space and the original pulpit from where one might entertain guests. The three bedrooms on the ground floor each have their own bathrooms and there is a potential fourth bedroom leading to the utility area which otherwise serves as a useful storage space. At the front of the chapel is a delightful courtyard providing a sitting area for enjoying the morning sun and a space for storing surf boards, kayaks and other such paraphernalia.

Kingston is a small, peaceful and unspoilt South Hams village, which is made predominantly of pretty Devon cottages, many being thatched. It has a well known village inn, The Dolphin and a church. The village lies some three to four miles south of the Georgian town of Modbury, which is well provided with a range of local shops. For more comprehensive shopping centres Kingsbridge is to the south east and Plymouth, which is within easy commuting distance, is to the north west. The coast is within a mile at Wonwell Beach and nearby there are other beaches and coves, as well as fine cliff top and coastal walks, and an 18 hole golf course at Bigbury. There is sailing at Salcombe, Newton Ferrers and on the Erme estuary, and to the north there is Dartmoor National Park.
