SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Thurlestone is the epitome of a South Devon village with its own highly-regarded primary school, excellent general stores, Inn and 13th century church. It is also well-known for fine its 18 hole links golf course (which also has hard and grass tennis courts) and the 4* Thurlestone Hotel, which boasts an impressive country club with indoor and outdoor heated pools, fitness studio, tennis, badminton and squash courts. Thurlestone also has sandy beaches and beautiful coastal walks whilst the nearby market town of Kingsbridge provides a good range of shops, a health centre, library, leisure centre, schools, churches and a regular farmers market.
We understand that the property was built in the late 1970s for the owner. It is of traditional construction with predominantly rough-cast rendered and colour-washed external elevations, off-set by some natural stone features to the front, the whole beneath a tiled roof.
In more recent years, it has been extended to provide a second garage with a two-bedroomed apartment over which has latterly been used for lucrative letting purposes but would also be ideal for dependent relatives or teenagers requiring privacy. Similarly, it could easily be incorporated back into the main dwelling, if required.
A further significant attraction of the property is its position: it is located on the northern fringes of the village from where it enjoys stunning views over the surrounding countryside to Bantham and Burgh Island and down the Cornish coast. It also occupies a large, level plot of just under 1/4 acre which affords obvious potential to extend or for further development, subject to the necessary planning consents.It is available with IMMEDIATE VACANT POSSESION and the accommodation comprises:- GROUND FLOOR
