About this property
A stunningly refurbished former farmhouse offering spacious accommodation, large garden and outbuildings located in the heart of a pretty South Hams village and within a moments' walk from Wonwell Beach.
Pounds Farm has been lovingly refurbished to an exemplary standard throughout while still retaining much of the original character and charm of this beautiful Georgian farmhouse. The property is conveniently located in the heart of the village and is within walking distance of Wonwell Beach and the spectacular South Hams coastline. The front door opens into an attractive hallway with stairs rising to the first floor and doors to the principle rooms. The living accommodation is generous in proportion and well balanced with two comfortable reception rooms, each warmed with a fitted log burner. The kitchen/breakfast room forms the hub of the house and boasts plenty of space for modern day family living with character features including a pretty window seat and further fireplace with log burning stove. The kitchen area has been fitted with a range of farmhouse style units incorporating a breakfast bar, double range cooker and integrated appliances. From the dining area a door opens into a delightful sunroom with external door to the rear courtyard. Also, on the ground floor is a useful boot room and well equipped utility room/WC.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms including a master with en-suite shower room. A further fifth bedroom would serve well as a nursery or study. The family bathroom has been fitted with a traditional suite including a claw foot bath and separate shower. From the landing a second set of stairs gives access to a most impressive attic room or home office space.
Outside and immediately behind the farmhouse is a large courtyard area with a range of useful outbuildings including a garage, patio seating areas and ample parking. From here a lawned path or steps lead to a gardener's paradise. The long stretch of lawn is interspersed with fruit trees and bordered with laurel and privet hedging incorporating a purpose built log store and garaging for a sit on mower. A substantial summerhouse and decked terrace sit proudly in the garden offering a perfect space for relaxing and enjoying alfresco dining and entertaining.
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 is well provided with a range of local shops. 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 beaches and coves, as well as fine cliff top and coastal walks, and an 18 hole golf course at Bigbury. There is sailing at Salcombe, Newton Ferrers and on the Erme estuary, and to the north there is Dartmoor National Park.
