SITUATION Little Court sits just on the edge of the sought after village of Aveton Gifford. Aveton Gifford is a small rural village in the south of Devon. It lies at the head of the estuary of the River Avon or Aune. It receives its name from this river and also from the family of Giffard who held the manor. Walter Giffard came across with William the Conqueror and helped with the Domesday Book. The village is located in the South Hams district of Devon. The parish has a population of approximately 850. The village has a pub, a community village shop/post office, a primary school, a pre-school and a selection of parish organisations. The coast, and beaches are just few miles away at Bigbury on Sea. A short drive away are the much larger towns of Kingsbridge and Modbury, both of which enjoy an excellent range of facilities, shops and schools. 

ACCOMMODATION Porch on the front of the property and with a lovely oak door and a glazed wall, this is a super space which has a door to a downstairs bathroom and opens to the hall with oak stairs rising to the first floor and a spacious landing. To the right of the hall is guest bedroom with room for a double bed, fitted wardrobes, windows to the front of the property and an oak door through to an en-suite bathroom with a panelled enclosed bath and mixer shower, WC and an opaque window to the front of the house. Further around, along the hall, stepping over the solid oak floor is a further guest bedroom or games room/study with French windows out to the decked terrace at the side of the property. Door to an en-suite shower room with panelled enclosed shower, ceramic tiles to floor and walls, WC, and an opaque window to the front of the property.

This area has room for two sofas, woodburning stove, further bi-fold doors on the front of the property open to the decked terrace and afford excellent views of the gardens. The centre of the living space is taken up by a dining area with room for a large dining table, recessed fitted shelving and beams to the ceiling give character. This moves into an area on the front of the property with a glass wall and superb views across the gardens to countryside beyond. Doors to either side give access to the decked terraces, which runs the full width of the property. To the other end of the living space is a fantastic bespoke kitchen with an excellent range of cupboard and drawer units, and two fitted ovens, dishwasher, double sink drainer and a large island unit with more cupboard and drawer units in it, including fitted fridge and fitted freezer units.
