SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Chillington is a thriving village with its own pub, post office/general stores and centrally-located health centre. There are excellent primary schools in the neighbouring villages of Stokenham and West Charleton. It is some 4 miles from Kingsbridge, a market town at the head of the Salcombe estuary with an excellent range of shops and local facilities which include a health centre/ cottage hospital, an outstanding secondary school and a sports centre. The sailing town of Salcombe, with its wonderful beaches and many shops and boutiques, is just a 20 minute drive away, the beach at Torcross is just 5 minutes to the east and there is a slipway one mile away at Frogmore, which is situated at the head of a tidal creek off the Kingsbridge estuary.
We understand that the house was built in the early 1980's using traditional methods and is finished with smooth-rendered and whitened elevations beneath a tiled roof. In 2002, a highly-regarded local architect was employed to design and oversee extensions to the rear and sides and it now affords spacious, family-sized accommodation which is well-presented throughout and which need to be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.
