A classic thatched former farmhouse of great character leading into gardens and land with timber studio/workshop and central pond surrounded by a variety of mature trees. The Grade II listed house and neighbouring house, to which it is attached, are reported to date back to the early 16th Century. In the 17th and 18th Centuries the original farmhouse was extended, remodelled and divided, creating the current house which had a further addition in far more recent years. A driveway sweeps down to a parking area for several cars, bringing easy access to the main entrance. Within the garden, a now disused swimming pool and a studio/workshop on the edge overlooking the land, subject to planning permission, together offer the possibility to be creative with ‘Grand Designs’ on a slightly smaller scale.
A highly sought after location on the edge of the popular sought after village of South Milton which has a friendly community and Village Hall is within easy reach of many parts of the South Hams. A point of great interest is the very popular South Milton Sands. A popular beach house restaurant is only 1 ¼ miles on the beach, from where the South Devon path with adjoining footpaths and bridleways provide walks over the cliff to Hope Cove in the south and Bantham in the north at the mouth of the River Avon. The nearby village of Thurlestone which offers an 18 hole golf course, sub Post Office Store, four star Hotel and Village Inn is approximately two and a half miles and the sailing centre of Salcombe is approximately five miles.
This grand cottage is of traditional stone construction under a thatched roof with the more recent addition of modern construction. Throughout the accommodation there are numerous character features dating back over the hundred of years blending with the conveniences of modern living.
