About this property

A delightful mid-terrace character cottage set in the heart of the estuary village of Aveton Gifford with courtyard garden. EPC Rating F.

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.

This charming property is very well presented throughout with character features including exposed ceiling beams and exposed painted stone wall in the dining room. The ample sitting room has windows on three sides. There is a modern kitchen and a separate utiility room. Also on the ground floor is a large store room adjoining the courtyard garden which could be used for a variety of purposes. Upstairs are three double bedrooms and a recently fitted family bathroom. A side door from the road gives a second access to the courtyard garden which provides an enclosed seating area.

Mains electricity, water and drainage.
