Full Details

Middle Grimpstonleigh is situated in an idyllic and rural part of the South Hams, only 3 miles from the bustling and thriving market town of Kingsbridge and within a short drive of many beautiful sandy beaches. The nearest village is East Allington which has a range of facilities including a pub, church, primary school and village shop/post office.

Tucked away towards the end of a no through road and enjoying an open southerly aspect, Middle Grimpstonleigh was built in 1830 and boasts of wealth of original period features.

The house has been well maintained in recent years and the accommodation is arranged over two floors. On the ground floor is a spacious sitting room with inglenook fireplace, dining room, study, cloakroom, handmade kitchen with AGA, utility and boot room. There are 4 bedrooms on the first floor, the principal has an en-suite and walk-in wardrobe, a family bathroom serves the other bedrooms.

At the front is a beautifully planted garden enclosed by stone walls. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. A detached stone barn has potential if desired and a spring fed pond enhances the idyllic setting.

Middle Grimpstonleigh adjoins a bridleway which affords easy access to nearby Woodleigh Woods, some 600 acres of Woodland Trust-owned land.

This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a traditional home in an extremely convenient location, nestled in the beautiful South Hams countryside, close to the sea but not remote.
