Pick of the crop at Colliver Orchard
Colliver Orchard, situated on a charming back lane one mile from the increasingly popular coastal area of Thurlestone Sands, provides a family or holiday home in the most idyllic countryside location you’re ever likely to see on your travels around the South Hams.
As you pull into the large forecourt and ample parking area you pass the tree house keeping sentry at the entrance to a lush and verdant world of green, dotted with mature fruit trees. Colliver Orchard, lovingly converted from a former farm building and built to exacting construction standards, provides a four bedroom home. It sits within just over an acre of sweeping well kept lawns with wide ranging views over a pair of neighbouring country residences. Tranquil country outlooks are the backdrop from mahogany framed windows and the sea can be spied from the tree house.
Not only could the house be updated or extended, subject to planning permission, with the addition of an oak framed wing for example, but the garage come workshop with attached car port also offers a wealth of redesign opportunities. Or, leaving buildings as they are, this property offers the ideal location to live the good life, with a workshop on site for the home based entrepreneur.
A log burner in the sitting room is ample to efficiently heat the well insulated home and to add further fuel economy is the addition of solar panels which not only provide energy for the property but produce a healthy income per quarter.
