Full description

Tenure: Freehold

In a very secluded and quiet location 100 yards down a private drive, 10 minutes walk from the town centre, Dodbrooke House is a superb 5 bedroom Grade II listed late Georgian property substantially built in 1835 with local hand dressed stone. Formerly the Rectory for the parish of Dodbrooke, the property is adjacent to the Grade I listed church and has been completely renovated by the current owners with wonderfully proportioned rooms and numerous period ecclesiastical architectural features including gothic windows, a suspended staircase and beautiful barrel vaulted ceilings.

Outside the former coach house has been converted into a 2 bedroom cottage which could be used as a holiday let. The former stables are now a double garage and workshop. The drive from the main road (which is church property) approaches the house from the rear. Inside the gate is an extensive gravel drive providing ample parking. The front of the house, which features large bay windows to the principal rooms overlooks the extensive south facing gardens surrounded by established woodland. The total site area is just over an acre. It is hard to believe that such an amazing property can be found so close to the centre of Kingsbridge.

The friendly market town of Kingsbridge provides a good range of shops, restaurants/pubs, 2 supermarkets, cinema, leisure centre with indoor swimming, numerous sports and fitness facilities, medical centre and community hospital, library and churches. The town boasts an excellent primary school and a community college which was judged “outstanding” by Ofsted. Close by there are boat moorings, quays and slipways at the head of the estuary. The area has an abundance of sandy beaches and coastal and countryside walks, with the popular sailing towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe within easy reach.
