About this property

Two characterful 16th century adjoining cottages, each with their own private pretty gardens, in the popular coastal village of Kingston. Grade II listed. No EPC required.

Within Kingston village are a pair of traditional 16th century cottages, set within a communal terrace to the front and each benefitting from their own pretty private rear garden area. The gardens have been well planted with a range of rare and unusual plants and an old donkey house has been converted into a children's playhouse. Clematis Cottage has been lovingly restored and now boasts traditional features including original beams and a wood burning stove. It has a well-fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and 2 pretty double en-suite bedrooms. Adjacent is Rambling Rose, again a charmingly restored property with a wealth of original features, including fireplaces, wood burning stove, beamed ceilings and 2 staircases leading upstairs to the 3 double bedrooms. The master en-suite bedroom is a delightful room with planked floor and panelling made from local shipwreck timbers. There is an interconnecting door which enables the 2 cottages to be used as one 5 bedroom house if desired. Currently both cottages are successfully let holiday cottages.

Kingston is a small, peaceful and unspoilt South Hams village, which is made predominantly of pretty Devon cottages, many being thatched. It has a well known village inn, The Dolphin and a church. The village lies some three to four miles south of the Georgian town of Modbury, which is well provided with a range of local shops. For more comprehensive shopping centres Kingsbridge is to the south east and Plymouth, which is within easy commuting distance, is to the north west. The coast is within a mile at Wonwell Beach and nearby there are other beaches and coves, as well as fine cliff top and coastal walks, and an 18 hole golf course at Bigbury. There is sailing at Salcombe, Newton Ferrers and on the Erme estuary, and to the north there is Dartmoor National Park.
