South Langston is a delightful traditional farmhouse with flexible accommodation and some lovely character features. It comes to the market with a detached barn with planning permission, stabling, garaging/workshop and just under 5.5 acres. The peaceful setting of the property set in the soft Devon countryside, close to the sea, is idyllic and the pretty walled garden offers attractive areas for al fresco dining. The property gives opportunities for a variety of uses including a home with holiday let/income, a family home with ancillary accommodation or smallholding. It is a real tucked away Devon gem.

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 house is within a mile of Wonwell Beach and nearby there are a number of other beaches and coves including Bigbury and Burgh Island, 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.
