THE PROPERTY An impressive and significant Grade II Listed property situated in a sought after location close to the heart of town. Four bedrooms, four receptions and one bedroom annexe with beautiful gardens and parking. 

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 An impressive and significant Grade II Listed property which was once The Modbury Institute has huge character and period features throughout. The property offers spacious accommodation with four bedrooms, four reception rooms, large attic space, two bathrooms, utility room and a one bedroom annexe. Large gardens can be enjoyed to the front and rear together with ample parking. Located in the heart of Modbury the house provides a lovely family home, as it has done for the current owners for thirty years.

Leading from the gate off Brownston Street is a large level lawned area which takes you to the front door and small lobby and then onto the entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor. The dual aspect dining room with large windows and open fireplace takes you through to the kitchen which is well-appointed with a gas and electric range cooker, space for a small table and chairs with pretty views across the rear garden. From here is a small passage with storage space taking you back to the entrance hall, utility room and shower room. The sitting room again with large windows overlooks the front garden with wooden mantle and gas stove, perfect for those winter evenings. The third reception room is currently being used as a study again with delightful views of the garden.

The annexe is a wonderful asset and comprises kitchen, bathroom and double bedroom which has access to the garden. Perfect for guests or as an investment, as this has been let in previous years.

From the stairs is a bedroom/study which overlooks the rear garden. Further up are three bedrooms and large family bathroom. The master bedroom is a beautiful room with two large windows overlooking the front aspect and which has an adjoining door to the bathroom. A further reception room houses a kitchen and living space with stairs rising to a large attic room which is currently being used for storage but has plenty of potential (STPC).
 

OUTSIDE The established garden to the rear is level and laid to lawn and has been lovingly cultivated by the current owners. With mature trees to include pear, plum and apple and flowering shrubs, the garden is a true delight and at the bottom of the garden is a greenhouse and workshop.
