Property Description: SITUATION & DESCRIPTION
Highwell is an immaculately presented six-bedroom, detached house situated in a quiet, secluded and enviable location with a sweeping drive leading to a double garage and parking for several vehicles. The house benefits from glorious views across the countryside and beyond to Dartmoor in the distance. Located on the edge of the village of Churchstow with Public House, village shop with post office and Church, Highwell is ideally placed for the beautiful sandy beaches of Bantham and Thurlestone just 2 miles away. The popular market town of Kingsbridge, situated at the head of the Salcombe estuary, has all amenities and facilities required with an outstanding secondary school. The regular bus service from Plymouth to Dartmouth runs through Churchstow and on to Kingsbridge 2 miles distant.
The ground floor of Highwell comprises an open plan kitchen/dining room with granite worktops, Aga, Neff double oven and hob. The spacious central hallway boasts elegance, character and warmth with a wood burning stove. From the hallway double doors lead to the large dining room and opposite is the sitting room with open fire. As with the most of the rooms, both offer dual aspect, allowing for an abundance of natural light. The conservatory stretches the width of the property, a peaceful spot to relax and take in the croquet lawn and garden. The ground floor also boasts a snug with further wood burning stove, cloakroom with shower, utility and boot room.
Stairs lead from the hallway to the large first floor landing with access to four double bedrooms, which all benefit from en-suite shower/bathrooms. The expansive principle bedroom suite includes a dressing room and built in wardrobes.
On the second floor are two further bedrooms with eaves storage and a family bathroom.
The well-maintained delightful gardens are mainly laid to lawn with established borders of shrubs and trees and a kitchen garden with soft fruit and an asparagus bed. There is a four-box stable block, 34ft. Greenhouse and potting shed all with power and light. The paddock has a small orchard in one corner of the pasture and a tennis court, which is fully fenced, but the surface needs attention.
This commanding, spacious house is ideal for entertaining throughout the year. SERVICES
