A charming Georgian mews style 4/5-bedroom semi-detached town house, dating back to the 17th century when it served as the stables for the Dodbrooke Estate. Converted to a dwelling in the early 19th century, it has been sympathetically renovated by the current owners to provide a characterful family home in a central town location.
The entrance door opens to a spacious kitchen/dining room with Limestone flooring, exposed timber stud work to one wall and a bespoke kitchen complete with a breakfast bar island with a concrete worktop. There are stairs to the first floor and an open doorway through to the sitting room with dual aspect windows, oak flooring and a fireplace with wood burner and oven. To the rear is a boot room/cloakroom with enamel sink, WC and door to the rear courtyard. Upstairs original painted floorboards run from the landing to bedroom 1 with French doors to the rear garden and a window to the front enjoying a view to Duncombe Park. Bedroom 2 also has French doors to the garden and study/bedroom 5 has built-in seating. There is a shower room and a generous family bathroom with freestanding roll top bath and a utility area. On the second-floor landing there is a linen storage cupboard and arched doors to the 2 attic bedrooms. To the side of the property is a passageway with flagstone flooring leading to the rear courtyard where there is an outside toilet, Belfast sink, cold water tap and storage areas. Steps take you up to a wonderfully private low maintenance south facing Mediterranean style garden with patio and decked seating areas. Also the remains of a former orangery with tiled flooring and raised beds with established grapevines growing over a timber pergola. To one corner above the courtyard is a timber building which would have been the stable hands accommodation and would make a superb home office/Airbnb subject to planning. Below here is ample storage for bikes/logs. There is also a useful storage room above the side passageway.
The friendly market town of Kingsbridge provides a good range of shops, restaurants/pubs, 2 supermarkets, cinema, leisure centre with indoor swimming, numerous sports and fitness facilities, medical centre, community hospital, library and churches.

The area has an abundance of sandy beaches and coastal and countryside walks, with the popular sailing towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe within easy reach.
