Full Details

East Allington has a strong local community, primary school, pre-school and pub. The village is surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside and within easy reach of the beautiful coastline, beaches and estuaries of the South Hams.

The closest town is 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 9 miles away and from here there is a regular direct train service to London Paddington. The pretty waterside town of Dartmouth which has an excellent range of shopping and marina facilities and lies at the mouth of the spectacular River Dart, famous as a sailing centre and home to Britannia Royal Naval College is 11 miles.

Fox House is a charming early 20th century property which is believed to have been built for the Master of the Hounds on the Fallapit Estate. The house has been sympathetically extended and renovated retaining period detailing including open fireplaces, sash windows and picture rails and offers spacious accommodation in a convenient village location.

The generous living accommodation on the ground floor comprises a country style kitchen dining room with steps up to a family room / library, cloakroom, sitting room with wood burning stove and another reception room with a utility room and WC off. A garden room on the west elevation was added in 2016 and serves as a light filled second entrance with vaulted ceiling. On the first floor are 5 bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a dressing room, an en-suite bathroom and family bathroom.

The gardens are a real feature of Fox House; beautifully planted with shrub and flower borders and mature trees. There is a large level lawn with sun terrace which is easily accessed from the kitchen. There is also a vegetable garden and two greenhouses.

The adjoining paddock with spring-fed pond and stream extends to approximately 2.25 acres and has views across to Fallapit House. There is a wild area and small orchard with a variety of fruit trees including apple, quince and plum. The paddock can also be accessed by a gate from the public bridleway.

At the side of the property is a gated gravelled driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and a detached garage / workshop.

Fox House is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a charming family home and viewing is highly recommended.
