Nearly 250 years of history to discover at Coombe Leigh

Marchand Petit are delighted to be instructed to sell Coombe Leigh in Chillington – a stunning Georgian Grade II listed property in the centre of the village. 

Theo Spink senior sales negotiator in Kingsbridge said: “This wonderful former farmhouse dates back to the 18th Century and is filled with a plethora of period features and an earlier photograph provided by the vendor shows just how little the property has changed.” 

The south facing front has fine 16 pane sashes and a central doorway, with a similarly dated panelled door and an early 20th Century wooden lattice porch. 

“The front garden area is also little changed with a stone garden wall, gate piers and railings.

“There’s a wide entrance hall with original slate floor welcoming you in through the front door,” says Theo. “And an open string staircase with shaped tread ends, stick balusters and a beautiful mahogany handrail makes a real feature of this area.” 

The house has a number of period fireplaces and most of the 19th Century and some of the 18th Century joinery survives. 

To the rear of the house, a small dairy is now incorporated into the main accommodation as the cloakroom. 

“Now fully modernised, the house offers an oil-fired Aga and a modern central heating system, and has been beautifully presented by the present owner. And with a charming rear garden and parking, this delightful house is just waiting to be seen,” added Theo.

Coombe Leigh is offered for sale with a price guide of £500,000. For further information please contact Marchand Petit’s Kingsbridge office on 01548 857588.
