A superb country residence nestled in a tranquil countryside setting and within a short drive away from the popular village of Aveton Gifford. Housemartins offers comfortable family accommodation over three floors boasting a wealth of period features. On the ground floor there is comfortable family living accommodation with two good size reception rooms both offering an immense amount of character and charm. The sitting room is an elegant dual aspect room with a cast iron fireplace and marble surround. The dining room has an array of character features including striped pine floors, exposed stone walls and an inglenook style fireplace and wood burner. From here the dining room connects well with the beautiful handcrafted kitchen and walk –in larder offering a great entertaining space. At the rear of the property there is access from a pretty walled courtyard area into a rear lobby and downstairs shower room and cloakroom. On the first floor there are three bedrooms together with a family bathroom and separate shower room/WC.
The lower ground floor is a versatile space which would suit a number of purposes including a home office area or additional double bedroom & reception room if required.

Outside the gardens are enchanting and have been thoughtfully landscaped in our client’s ownership incorporating a wide expanse of lawn with mature shrubs and trees providing a sitting area to enjoy the view over to open countryside. Furthermore there is a range of single storey outbuildings and detached double garage offering potential to extend or create ancillary accommodation subject to necessary planning consents.

The Georgian town of Modbury with an interesting variety of shops is to the north and Kingsbridge which has a more comprehensive shopping centre is to the south. To the east lies the Avon River and Estuary which is renowned for its abundance of wild fowl. The River Avon is navigable downstream to Bantham and out to sea, tide permitting. The nearest sandy beaches are Bigbury on Sea, Bantham and Burgh Island, surrounded by outstanding scenery and cliff tops of the South Hams coastline, much of which is now owned by the National Trust. Also, nearby, are the sailing centres based at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, as well as 18 hole golf courses at Bigbury and Thurlestone. Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the north and provides a backdrop to the area which must surely rank as one of the most beautiful in the country.
