About this property

A marvellous detached stable conversion with integral garage and south facing garden in a tucked away part of Modbury. EPC Rating C.

Modbury is a picturesque Georgian town situated in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', and is only about 4 miles from the nearest beach. Some two hundred years ago it was extremely prosperous being the local market town and a centre for the wool trade. Today there is a good range of local shops including a butcher, baker, grocers, hardware store, chemist, delicatessen and a number of gift shops and art galleries. Modbury received world wide media coverage when it became the first town in Europe to become plastic bag free. Other amenities include a primary school, health centre, dentist, veterinary surgery and mobile library. For more comprehensive shopping, Kingsbridge is to the South and Plymouth is about 12 miles to the West. Modbury is on the main bus route and is also only about 5.5 miles from the A38. Nearby there are fine cliff top and coastal walks, beaches and coves, with sailing at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, 18 hole golf courses at Thurlestone and Bigbury and Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the North.

The Old Stables is entered on a half landing with cloakroom and stairs to the ground and first floors. On the ground floor there is a spacious sitting room with fireplace and attractive arch through to the dining conservatory, a wonderful addition to the property having tiled flooring and French doors opening out to the rear courtyard garden. A further archway leads through to the beautifully presented kitchen/breakfast room with fitted units, belfast sink, granite worktops and AGA. A study and utility room with sliding door to the garage with electric remote operated door completes the ground floor. The landing has a study area and window providing views over Modbury. There are 3 double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and bedroom 1 has an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom has a built-in airing cupboard housing the gas fired combi boiler. To the rear is a paved, private and sheltered south facing courtyard garden with planted borders, ideal for alfresco dining.

From the Modbury Office turn right and then first right up Brownston Street. Take the first turning on the left into Back Street.
