The property also benefits from a Beam central vacuum system, Lutron mood lighting, integrated sound system and intruder alarm. Externally, the house occupies a plot approaching half an acre in size, with the gardens being mainly lawned, beautifully landscaped and immediately adjoining open countryside over which delightful open views. Queens Croft is available with Immediate vacant possession.

The property is accessed at the front via a solid oak entrance door with a glazed panel above. This leads to the entrance hall, which is a striking reception to the property with a wonderful oak galleried landing reached by a solid oak staircase. Ceramic tiled flooring extends throughout the whole of the ground floor except for the sitting room. A half glazed stable door leads to the rear courtyard garden. There is a cloakroom with an opaque glazed window to front with a deep display sill, an oval Utopia porcelain wash hand basin with corian surround and built-in storage cupboards below.

The sitting room is an impressive, light and airy triple aspect room affording wonderful views over the garden and surrounding countryside. It has a fireplace with a wood burner and granite hearth. To one side is the sun room which has double opening French doors to the garden and electrically-operated roller and roman blinds. The kitchen/breakfast room is superbly fitted and equipped with a comprehensive range of bespoke solid oak units including a Shaw’s Classic Belfast sink with mixer tap and flexible hose spray set within a solid granite worktop with cut-out drainer, matching up-stands and tiled splashbacks. An integrated Neff Combi oven is fitted, as well as an oil-fired AGA with an extractor hood and light above. There is a recess for an American style fridge/freezer and an integrated dishwasher. At the centre of the ktichen is an island unit with power points, a breakfast bar and floor based drawers including a pull out waste bin. An archway leads through to the dining room, which is a beautiful, well-lit dual aspect room with sliding doors to the terrace with electrically operated curtains.

Also on the ground floor is a utility room with a matching range of oak-fronted units, a Shaw's Classic Belfast sink set within a solid granite worktop with cut-out drainer and a matching upstand. A study/bedroom 5 completes the ground floor.

On the first floor, the landing is in oak and galleried to the full height with a high level arched window to the front and two Velux skylights. In common with the whole of the first floor, the landing has solid oak flooring and an open walkway with fitted wardrobes leading to bedroom four/studio.

South Milton is a pretty village, less than a mile from the beaches at Thurlestone and South Milton Sands. Thurlestone village has its own general stores and post office, a hotel offering leisure facilities and an 18 hole links golf course. The South Coast of Devon has numerous sandy beaches, coves and sheltered anchorages, all of which make it an excellent base for dinghy sailing.

The renowned estuary town of Salcombe is approximately 4.5 miles away whilst Kingsbridge, with its further range of shops, services and amenities is some 3 miles distant. There are a number of schools easily accessible to the property including the highly regarded Kingsbridge Community College, which is approximately 4 miles away, and recently received an outstanding OFSTED report.

Communication links are excellent. The A38 is within approximately 12 miles which links together with the national motorway network at Exeter. The train from Totnes and Exeter is on the Paddington Line and takes about 2 hours and 2 hours 45 minutes respectively. Meanwhile, Exeter International Airport, approximately 45 miles away, has a growing number of international and domestic flights. Approximately 105 miles away, Bristol Airport is larger and between the two it often negates the need to use the London airports.

The property is approached at the front over a gravelled area (part shared with a neighbour) and then a private brick-paved driveway which provides ample parking and turning space for numerous vehicles and access to the integral double garage.

A pathway from the front leads to a paved courtyard garden, bordered by a low stone wall, with wonderful countryside views. Immediately to the rear of the house is an extensive paved terrace which is south west facing and receives the sun for most of the day. There is an attractive water feature and beyond the terrace is a large level lawned garden with a ha-ha and raised shrub and flower borders with low stone retaining walls. Beautiful pine and gingko trees are interspersed within the gardens.

There is an electric awning on the exteroir dining room wall over the terrace, as well as courtesy lighting, power points and a cold water tap. At the far end of the garden are raised railway sleeper vegetable plots with a gravelled surround. A timber storage shed is set on a concrete base with electric power and light and water. To the side is a seating area with marvellous views across the valley.
