Full Details

DESCRIPTION This former police house, which inspired several novels by Agatha Christie, is beautifully situated between the villages of St Ann’s Chapel and Bigbury with distant sea views and several footpaths leading to the nearby beaches. The property is light and spacious with front garden with parking and turning area and rear gardens with views across open countryside.

Step in through the front porch and enter via a stable door into the spacious reception room with its original timber flooring. Originally this would have been two rooms but over the years has been opened up to provide a spacious and light filled family space with offers an open fire to one end with a woodburning stove and a further feature fireplace with decorative Victorian cast iron surround to the other. Doors open into a delightful Victorian style conservatory leading out to the rear gardens. A door from the reception room leads into the kitchen which offers ample space for cooking and dining and benefits from a separate utility room and cloak room with WC and wash basin. From the reception room an oak turned staircase rises to the first floor landing with views over the rear gardens and farmland beyond. There are new quality wool carpets upstairs and all three bedrooms are doubles and are situated at the front of the property affording a distant view of the sea. The master bedroom offers an en-suite shower room and there is a separate modern family bathroom.

OUTSIDE Timber entrance gates at the front of the property lead into a large parking and turning area suitable for a number of vehicles and gives access to the studio/workshop. This was converted from the garage some years ago and would be ideal for use as a studio workspace or home office as there is power and light connected with doors to both front and back providing separate access from the house itself. The family friendly rear garden is mostly laid to lawn interspersed with a number of mature trees and shrubs and offers peace and privacy alike.
