Full description

An individually-designed house in grounds of around 1/2 an acre with delightful views over the creek and open countryside beyond. Five bedrooms, Triple aspect sitting room, well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room, double garage, wonderful southerly views, 2.5 acre field available to rent. EPC Band: D.

Situation And Description - Frogmore is a small village with a lively community and its own Inn and well-renowned bakery with general store/post office lying at the head of a creek off the Salcombe estuary. Kingsbridge is only a couple of miles away and offers an excellent range of shops, swimming pool, excellent primary and secondary schools, a health centre and cottage hospital whilst the public slip in the middle of the village allows direct access to the water, and makes Salcombe reachable in around 20 minutes. There are excellent countryside and creekside walks whilst for those using a car or bus, the main road from Kingsbridge to Dartmouth runs through the village.

We understand that Cleave House was built in the mid-1990's. It is of traditional construction, finished with mainly smooth-rendered external elevations, off-set by some attractive local stone work to both front and rear, beneath a slate roof. It is fully double glazed and oil-fired centrally heated and an adjoining field of around 2.25 acres is available to rent from the owners on a long term basis if required and may well appeal to someone wishing to keep a couple of horses or a few sheep, etc.

A further attraction is its position: Cleave House occupies a wonderful south-facing setting on the fringes of Frogmore, one of the South Hams most popular villages, from where it enjoys delightful views over the nearby creek and surrounding countryside with Salcombe in the distance to the west.
