Built in 1961 by the owner, an architect, this 3 bedroom house is set in a lovely location at the edge of Modbury overlooking fields and open countryside and yet close to the centre of the town .

Modbury is a picturesque Georgian town situated in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', and is only about 4 miles from the nearest beach. Some two hundred years ago it was extremely prosperous being the local market town and a centre for the wool trade. Today there is a good range of local shops including a butcher, baker, grocers, hardware store, chemist, delicatessen and a number of gift shops and art galleries. Modbury received world wide media coverage when it became the first town in Europe to become plastic bag free. Other amenities include a primary school, health centre, dentist, veterinary surgery and mobile library and Lloyds bank. For more comprehensive shopping, Kingsbridge is to the South and Plymouth is about 12 miles to the West. Modbury is on the main bus route and is also only about 5.5 miles from the A38. Nearby there are fine cliff top and coastal walks, beaches and coves, with sailing at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, 18 hole golf courses at Thurlestone and Bigbury and Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the North.
