Full Details

Woolston is a small hamlet situated in a peaceful location approximately midway between Salcombe and Kingsbridge.

Salcombe is renowned as a sailing and boating centre, located beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the south west, with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches on either side towards its mouth. The popular town has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Kingsbridge offers extensive shopping 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 15 miles away, from here there is a regular direct train service to London Paddington.

The Witterings, which dates back to the 1950’s, is a substantial home which retains many traditional features such as Minster stone fireplaces, oak flooring and hardwood windows. The principal rooms face south and enjoy expansive views over the gardens and grounds to open countryside beyond.

The generous living accommodation on the ground floor comprises a spacious sitting room with open fire, dining room with French doors to a loggia with steps to the garden, study and guest cloakroom. A contemporary extension has been added off the kitchen and provides modern living space with an abundance of natural light and direct access to a paved sun terrace from the breakfast room and bedroom.

On the first floor are 3 bedrooms with views over the gardens. The principal bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and door to balcony with panoramic rural views.

In addition to the main house, a two storey cottage is perfect guest accommodation and has income potential if desired. As well as the original garage there is a substantial recently built garage block with showering facility that offers excellent storage, room for a number of vehicles and a workshop.

The gardens are an absolute delight, beautifully laid out with almost level lawns and planted borders. At the bottom of the garden a gate leads into the paddock which also has separate access from the road.

This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a family home in one of the most sought-after locations in the South Hams.
