Situation & Description - The property is located at Waterhead, a hamlet of only a handful of properties just a ten minute or so walk from the beautiful Avon estuary that meanders on to the wide expanses of golden sands at Bigbury and Bantham, both of which are around ten minutes away by car. Aveton Gifford itself is a delightful and historic village which has a great community and its own pre and primary schools, medieval church, post office/shop, public house and restaurant. It is almost 4 miles equi-distant Kingsbridge and Modbury, each of which have their own varied range of shops, services and facilities whilst the A38 Devon Expressway is only 20 minutes away and provides excellent links to Plymouth and Exeter and beyond.
We understand that the property was originally three farm workers cottages and is believed to have been built in the late-1600s. In more recent years, it has been totally refurbished (including a new roof) to the highest of standards throughout by the present owners.
It now affords spacious and beautifully-presented accommodation with many original period features, features of which include the 16 sitting room with its heavily-beamed ceiling and feature stone fireplace with log burner and the kitchen/breakfast room which has a tiled floor and is well-fitted with a good range of wood-fronted units with an AGA range.
Externally, it has two lawned garden areas, one of which is to the rear and at a higher level where there is also a large deck and is a perfect place to enjoy al-fresco living and to take in the glorious rural aspect.
The cottage has been successfully holiday let in the past and the majority of the fixtures and fittings may be able to be negotiated as an addition to the sale, if required
