A fine and splendid example of Georgian architecture in this Grade II Listed townhouse showcasing many superb and original features. Versatile and light filled accommodation with private parking and in a superbly accessible location.  

SITUATION Modbury is a picturesque Georgian town situated in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', and is only about 4 miles from the nearest beach. 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 and mobile library.

For more comprehensive shopping, Kingsbridge is to the South and Plymouth is about 12 miles to the West. Modbury is on the main bus route and is also only about five miles from the A38. Nearby there are fine cliff top and coastal walks, other beaches and coves, with sailing at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, 18 hole golf courses at Thurlestone and Bigbury and Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the North.  

DESCRIPTION The accommodation is light filled, versatile and generous in its design with reception rooms working equally well as bedrooms. The current arrangement consists of five reception rooms and three bedrooms but could provide as many as six bedrooms. The principal rooms at the front of the house are graced with splendid multi-paned sash windows allowing sunlight to flood in and it is difficult not to be impressed by the lovely original features throughout; beautiful marble fireplaces, ornate coving and cornices, archways, doors and alcoves. The ancillary rooms on the ground floor provide for practical day to day use in the form of a conservatory/boot room, utility room and a wc which could easily be reconfigured to provide a shower room. Stairs rise to the first floor with an attractive and spacious landing, the focal point being a beautiful, arched stained glass window which can be seen and enjoyed from both levels.

The first floor is home to the sitting room and dining room, two imposing rooms full of light with Georgian features and a lovely warm atmosphere. The kitchen is at the rear of the house with a sizeable sash window and is well fitted with a range of units incorporating a Bosch oven and grill, an integrated gas hob and an integrated dishwasher. Wall mounted central heating boiler.

Three generously sized bedrooms are situated on the second floor. The master is at the front of the house with a pretty fireplace and a newly fitted modern en-suite shower. Both rooms benefit from a sash window as does the second bedroom which is also at the front. The third bedroom on this floor is at the rear from where views can be enjoyed across the rooftops of Modbury towards the nearby countryside. There is an airing cupboard on the landing and a family bathroom completes the accommodation on this floor.

There is a pretty little courtyard which is accessed from the conservatory. A cobbled area in which to sit and a space for pots and containers. Of great advantage to this house is the parking which is offered by way of a double (tandem) garage. Parking is at a premium in Modbury so to find a property of this calibre with this facility is really of great benefit and advantage.

A property which we are delighted to be able to offer for sale and we would highly recommend a viewing to fully appreciate not only its beauty and charm but also its generous and versatile accommodation.
