A truly stunning contemporary home which embraces its beautiful South Hams location. Designed by a local architect to an exceptional standard throughout, with distant sea views.
Kingston is a small, peaceful and unspoilt South Hams village, which is made predominantly of pretty Devon cottages, many being thatched. It has a well known village inn, The Dolphin, and a church. The village lies some three to four miles south of the Georgian town of Modbury, which provides a good range of local shops including a butcher, baker, grocers, hardware store, chemist, delicatessen and a number of gift shops and art galleries. Other amenities include a primary school, health centre, dentist, veterinary surgery and mobile library. For more comprehensive shopping centres, Kingsbridge is to the south east and Plymouth, which is within easy commuting distance, is to the north west. The coast is within a mile at Wonwell Beach and nearby there are other beautiful beaches and coves, as well as fine cliff top and coastal walks. An 18 hole golf course can be found nearby at Bigbury, with sailing being found at Salcombe, Newton Ferrers and on the Erme estuary. To the north there is Dartmoor National Park.
Cleverly designed to capture its surroundings, Higher Gabberwell House is an exceptional contemporary home, with unique features throughout including an impressive double height entrance hall with bespoke steel staircase. The exceptional open plan living area, with floor to ceiling glass windows and large patio doors, embraces the large South facing garden and views. Fitted with a comprehensive range of contemporary units and integrated appliances, the kitchen is in the heart of the home, with a large island. For those quieter times, a further sitting room provides a lovely seating area. On the ground floor there is also a useful cloakroom and utility room.
The first-floor accommodation is again generous in proportion and provides a master suite with walk in wardrobe and en-suite shower room. In addition there are three further double bedrooms, two of which come with en-suites.
Outside, metal sliding gates open onto a long driveway, leading through the lawned gardens to the side of the house where you can find the double garage. To the rear of the property, there is an impressive, private terrace which provides a wonderful dining and seating area where you can truly enjoy the stunning countryside and sea views. For a cosier seating area, there is the beautiful addition of a contemporary summerhouse pod.
