A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a pair of Victorian Estate cottages in 3 acres, ripe for modernisation and extension (STPP), situated in one of the most outstanding rural locations in the South Hams.
OPEN DAYS Friday 21st July & Saturday 29th July 10am - 2pm.
Originally part of the Hazelwood Estate, created by the Peek Frean family in Victorian times, 1 & 2 Mount Brown Cottages are an exquisite pair of stone built cottages with charming architectural detail of leaded light windows and sculptured eaves, which now require complete updating. Sitting in grounds of just over 3 acres, the cottages enjoy truly outstanding views across the Avon Valley in a wonderful private setting, together with a ruined folly. This is a unique opportunity in one of the most glorious settings imaginable and buyers will instantly recognise the enormous potential. There is electricity to the site but no other services at present.
Viewing: the site can only be approached off a private road therefore it is not possible to ‘drive by’. All viewings must be accompanied by authorised members of staff at Marchand Petit Kingsbridge Office as this is a private Estate.
