Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached, spacious family home situated in a wonderful rural location in the heart of the South Hams with stunning panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. This south-facing property, which has been enjoyed by the current owner for 18 years is lovely, light and well-appointed throughout comprising 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms and study. Glorious mature gardens with large detached garage/workshop.  

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION The property is situated between California Cross, a small hamlet astride the B3196 with a petrol filling station/convenience store and award winning popular former coaching inn and Modbury, a picturesque Georgian town which has an excellent range of local shops including a butcher, baker, grocers, hardware store, chemist, delicatessen and a number of gift shops and art galleries. Other amenities in the town include a primary school, health centre, dentist, veterinary surgery and mobile library etc.

More comprehensive needs are catered for at Kingsbridge which lies some 8 miles to the South whilst the city of Plymouth is about 12 miles to the West. The A38 Devon Expressway with its dual carriageway link to the M5 is some 5 miles, and a 10 minute drive away.

We understand that this former farmhouse was built circa 1910 using traditional methods and is finished with rough-cast rendered and colour-washed external elevations beneath a slate roof. The property is uPVC double glazed and was extended around 17 years ago when an en-suite bedroom was added to the ground floor and other adaptions were made to accommodate wheelchair use.

Externally, the house occupies large, well-maintained and mainly lawned gardens whilst to the rear, almost level pasture land of up to 17 acres is available, by separate negotiation, if required. However, it is the position of the property and the view that it enjoys that will undoubtedly be of particular interest to most would-be buyers: it is located in the heart of the South Hams and from its south-facing position, it enjoys a truly wonderful, panoramic vista over the surrounding countryside encompassing Bigbury and Salcombe and to Start Point, some 12 miles or so distant.
