SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION:
Thurlestone is the epitome of a South Devon village with its many picturesque stone and thatched cottages and colourful gardens resulting from its own "micro-climate". The village is renowned for its 4-star hotel and it also has an Inn, post office/general stores, church and highly-regarded primary school. There is a large, sandy beach whilst other, more secluded coves are reached by walking one of the many footpaths across its prestigious 18 hole golf course. The property's location provides an easy level walk into the village centre.
We understand that the property is a Potton timber-framed home benefiting from all the usual energy savings etc usually associated with this type of construction and it was built in 1995 by respected local builder. It is finished with part-red brick/part-rendered and painted external elevations beneath a tiled roof. The windows are all wooden framed and double glazed and an oil-fired boiler supplies central heating via water flow under-floor heating.
Internally, it affords beautifully-presented and most spacious accommodation of character with many exposed support beams, roof timbers and cottage style wooden panel doors, typical of the Potton design, whilst externally it occupies a generous, landscaped plot from where wonderful views are enjoyed over the surrounding countryside to the sea and Bolt Tail.Please refer to the attached floor plan and the accommodation comprises:-
