SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Kingsbridge lies at the head of the Salcombe estuary and is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. It offers an excellent range of shops, local services and facilities which include a Sports Centre (with a competition-size indoor swimming pool), primary school and highly-rated (Ofsted) community college, health centre and cottage hospital. The sailing town of Salcombe is 6 miles away whilst Totnes and Dartmouth are both within easy reach.
We understand that the original mill building dates form the early C19th. It was converted to a dwelling in the late 1990s and now provides unique three-bedroomed accommodation of exceptional character with many original features having been retained throughout.
A garage/store room was then converted around ten years ago to provide an annexe with living room, double bedroom and bathroom and a sizeable double garage at the lower level which allows immense scope for conversion to extend the accommodation, if required (subj to pp).
A particular feature of Ally's Mill is the position and its grounds. The property is located on the south-eastern fringes of the town and is one of those properties which even many locals are unaware of. It has a distinctly rural feel yet is, in reality, within easy walking distance of the recreation grounds, embankment and town centre whilst the gardens themselves are mainly lawned with the many plants, shrubs and mature trees affording a high degree of privacy and seclusion.
