DESCRIPTION Substantial village house in extensive gardens. Lots of character and charm and potential for some modernisation and further improvement. Excellent location, within walking distance of the beach. Previously a B & B, it is now a great family home. 

SITUATION Kingston is a sought after village in the South Hams area of South Devon. The nearest town of Modbury is about 3 miles away, the larger town of Kingsbridge, offering a greater and wider range of recreation and commercial facilities is about 8 miles distant and the A38 dual carriageway expressway, connecting to the M5 motorway and national road network, being about 10 miles to the north.

Modbury is a picturesque Georgian town situated in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. 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 and antique shops. Other amenities include a primary school, health centre, dentist, veterinary surgery and mobile library.

Nearby is the magnificent South Hams coastline, offering fine cliff top and coastal walks, beaches and coves, with sailing at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, 18 hole golf courses being available at Thurlestone and Bigbury, and Dartmoor National Park is within easy reach to the north.
