Coles Cross House is exceptionally well placed in an idyllic and rural part of the South Hams within a short drive of many beautiful sandy beaches. The house is just four miles from Kingsbridge which offers extensive shopping and facilities including a health centre, small hospital, sports centre and the highly regarded Kingsbridge Community College.
The bustling and thriving market town of Totnes is 11 miles away and from here there is a regular direct train service to London Paddington. The closest villages are Sherford and East Allington which have strong communities, village halls and churches. East Allington has a highly-regarded primary school, pre-school, and pub.
The house, the first built at Coles Cross, dates back to 1750 and for many years was a farm. For the last 30 years it has been a much loved family home which the owners have improved and sympathetically developed. The main house currently offers over 2300 sq. ft of accommodation but there is potential to incorporate the studio or extend into the large roof space, subject to any necessary consents.
The generous living accommodation on the ground floor comprises a country style kitchen dining room with Chalon island, AGA and walk-in larder, characterful sitting room with 300 year old reclaimed beams and Jotul wood burning stove, study and a wonderful oak framed garden room that was added in 2016. The newly completed studio with full width bi-fold doors overlooks the gardens and provides any purchaser with an incredibly flexible space to use as they wish. The loft of the studio is easily accessible and partly boarded for storage.
A principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom on the first floor enjoys lovely views across the garden towards Slapton and out to sea. There are 3 further double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite and a family bathroom. There is an easy option to create a 5th bedroom if desired.
The gardens are a real feature of this wonderful home having been thoughtfully planted to provide colour throughout the seasons. There is a productive vegetable garden, pond and large garden shed. Within the garden is a Crane summerhouse which faces south west and is a delightful place to sit and fully appreciate the exquisite planting. The driveway provides parking for several vehicles and the oak framed garage was completed at the end of 2021.
This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a characterful family home in an extremely convenient location, nestled in the beautiful South Hams countryside, close to the sea but not remote.
