About this property

** No Onward Chain ** Superb 4 bedroom character property forming part of a Grade II listed Devon Longhouse surrounded by the glorious South Hams rolling countryside. Which further benefits from off road parking and a garage.

Nestled in the glorious South Devon countryside, Heathfield Down is a Georgian Grade II listed building, believed to be the largest Devon Longhouse in the country. Thought to have been built in 1760, the property has now been divided into 4 properties. The Garden House is beautifully presented with spacious and versatile accommodation arranged over three floors and is a wonderful example of a period property which has been re-designed for modern living and meticulously maintained. The property forms part of a small community of just 6 properties between the pretty Georgian market town of Modbury and the larger town of Kingsbridge on the estuary. Just a few miles from the coast the property is perfectly situated to enjoy both the surrounding countryside with its plethora of walks and the wonderful South Devon coastline.

On entering the property at ground floor level, you are greeted by a light hallway with stairs rising to the upper and lower floors. The spacious kitchen/ dining/ living room extends to the full length of the property and enjoys a fine outlook over the gardens and surrounding countryside. The kitchen has been newly fitted with a range of contemporary units incorporating an integrated dishwasher and a central butchers block. The sitting room area sits to the rear of the property and enjoys views over the communal gardens and surrounding countryside. On the first floor there are two good size double bedrooms, each with an en-suite. On the lower ground floor there are two further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a utility area with space for appliances. The current owners have on occasion offered this space as letting/ holiday accommodation,

Outside, the property has parking for 2 vehicles and has a single garage with mezzanine floor for extra storage. The front garden sweeps down to the property and is laid to lawn with surrounding shrubs. The rear garden is of communal use but is apportioned between the properties, offering a fantastic space for enjoying as a peaceful retreat or entertaining. The garden area is laid to lawn and enjoys glorious views of surrounding countryside and farmland.
