DESCRIPTION An interesting and exciting opportunity to purchase a 1950's built, detached house on the edge of a pretty South Hams village. The property has been within the same family ownership for 30 years and offers great potential to create a fabulous modern home. The accommodation currently comprises 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large, south facing lounge/diner and a good sized kitchen. From upstairs there are wonderful views stretching across the surrounding countryside towards the sea at nearby Challaborough Bay.  

SITUATION Bigbury is a charming village located 1.5 miles inland in the South Hams area of South Devon. The beautiful parish church of St Lawrence was extensively rebuilt in 1872 but parts are believed to date back to the 14th century. Local amenities include the popular Oyster Shack known for its exquisite local produce. At St Ann's Chapel you will find Holywell Stores & Post Office which is open 7 days a week providing all your daily grocery needs, public house and restaurant. A high quality 18 hole golf course can be found at Bigbury on Sea overlooking the stunning coastline.

Approximately one mile away is Bigbury-on-Sea which is a very desirable coastal village in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Famous for its magnificent sandy beaches and glorious views over Burgh Island with the renowned Art Deco hotel and the historic Pilchard Inn. With its beautiful golden sands, shallow water for paddling, rock pools for exploring and watersports it is a very popular holiday resort for families.

A comprehensive range of shops, services and recreational facilities can be found at Kingsbridge (some 8 miles away, with a tidal road which can be taken as a short cut by approximately 3 miles depending on the height of tide). The Georgian town of Modbury, which is well provided with a range of shops and restaurants is some five miles away.
