DESCRIPTION A splendid and handsome Georgian property located in a most sought after South Hams village. Torr House boasts generously proportioned rooms alongside an abundance of period features. The classic Georgian sash windows afford not only light filled accommodation but an opportunity to view the glorious, colour filled gardens.  

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, mobile library and Lloyds Bank.

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.
 

ACCOMMODATION Torr House is an elegant, well-proportioned and much cared for, Georgian Villa. Located just a short distance from some of the South Hams finest sandy beaches yet conveniently located to access the amenities of Modbury and Kingsbridge. The property's finery is apparent from the outset with fabulous parquet flooring in the entrance hallway and elegant and imposing staircase rising to the first floor. The impressive double drawing room boasts the same parquet flooring and has two fine, marble fire surrounds, ceiling roses, cornices and ornate plasterwork and large windows at either end. The four large, sash windows at the front of the house are flanked with beautiful, panelled window shutters and allow natural light to flood the house. On the other side of the entrance hall a door leads into another fine and elegant room known by the current owner as the Morning Room which further leads to a cloakroom, a comprehensively fitted and handpainted kitchen at the rear and a practical and versatile scullery with an oil fired "alpha" range.

A wonderfully light and airy landing at the top of the staircase has French doors which open out onto a charming balcony overlooking the garden. The master bedroom is at the front of the house with a large sash window and window seat and connects to a dressing room and a modern fitted bathroom, above which has access to a sizeable loft room with Velux window. Three further bedrooms, a shower room and a bathroom complete the accommodation on the first floor.
 

OUTSIDE Outside the formal style cottage garden is stocked with an abundance of shrubs, trees and perennial plants giving a riot of colour throughout the year. Paved and gravelled pathways lead around and through the garden to a number of seated areas providing shade throughout at different times of the day. To one side is a single garage approached via a driveway providing additional parking.
