About this property

A delightful and spacious 3 bedroom cottage in this sought after village at the head of the Avon estuary and with a studio in the garden.

Aveton Gifford lies on the western bank of the River Avon, deep in the South Hams in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is probably best known for its 15th Century bridge which was built to replace the ancient ford. Aveton Gifford is off the beaten track as the by-pass carries all major traffic and the old part of the village is a conservation area. There is a public house with a restaurant, church, nursery/primary school, village shop and it is on the bus route. The village also has a tennis club, cricket club, children’s playground and a large green within walking distance. The Georgian town of Modbury with an interesting variety of shops is to the north and Kingsbridge which has a more comprehensive shopping centre is to the south. To the east lies the Avon River and Estuary which is renowned for its abundance of wild fowl. The River Avon is navigable downstream to Bantham and out to sea, tide permitting. The nearest sandy beaches are Bigbury on Sea, Bantham and Burgh Island, surrounded by outstanding scenery and cliff tops of the South Hams coastline, much of which is now owned by the National Trust. Also nearby are the sailing centres based at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, as well as 18 hole golf courses at Bigbury and Thurlestone. Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the north and provides a backdrop to the area which must surely rank as one of the most beautiful in the country.

Vine Cottage has been lovingly refurbished to provide a home of character and charm, set in the heart of Aveton Gifford.

A side passageway entrance opens into the dining room which has a feature double sided woodburning stove set on a slate hearth with exposed stone chimney breast and stone arch leading through to the good sized sitting room, with home cinema (under separate negotiation).
Exposed lime washed floorboards. A bright kitchen / breakfast room with the breakfast area having fitted seating with built-in storage, tiled flooring and exposed painted stone wall. A beautifully fitted kitchen with Belfast sink and granite worktops, integrated fridge and dishwasher with space for a free standing range cooker. Rear cloakroom and WC and a generous workshop / utility room. On the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms and a single. The recently fitted bathroom has a bath with rainfall shower above, bath shower screen, wash hand basin, WC and painted panelling to dado height. From the road a side passage leads to the rear of the property with steps up to the studio/office which has a wood burning stove. The terraced garden has a sheltered patio seating area and lawned areas with fruit trees and timber garden shed.
