Christopher’s are proud to present this extended period cottage (not listed) set close to the heart of this popular South Hams town.
The property offers flexible accommodation and has recently been fitted with bespoke double-glazed windows which have been designed in keeping with the abundance of character already present in this home. The entrance porch welcomes you into an inner hallway flanked by a downstairs bedroom/study on one side and on the other a cosy, double aspect sitting room with beamed ceilings. There is currently a realistic log gas fire nestled within the striking original fireplace. Greeting you at the end of the hallway is a spacious, light and airy farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room which is a fantastic central hub giving access to a functional utility room, bathroom, separate cloakroom and large dining room beyond. Both the kitchen and dining room offer doors to the garden and are perfectly positioned to enjoy the panoramic views of Modbury. The modern kitchen also houses a Watson gas-fired Range. An original staircase leads you from the hallway to the first-floor where there are two good sized double bedrooms each with fitted wardrobes.
Outside, steps lead from the village lane to the entrance porch with a further set of steps to the side leading to a pedestrian gate and the garden beyond. The garden is an absolute show-stopper. Offering a high degree of privacy, the entire plot sits in a stunning elevated position and thoroughly absorbs the scenic landscape that surrounds it. There is a pull-in space for one vehicle. This absolutely charming home is offered with no onward chain.

There’s a pretty spot as you enter the picture-postcard town of Modbury from the Plymouth direction, which has been in the care of Devon Wildlife Trust since 1986. Follow the footpath through woodland and discover ancient hedge banks and small streams. This area is known for rare species of flower and is home to brown bats, dormice, blue tits and nuthatches.
Modbury is an architectural delight with dignified Georgian terraced townhouses, slate-hung walls, quaint shop windows, and classical doorways; an historical urban landscape within a charming rural setting. It is the rich history and traditional charm that draws many people to visit and want to live here, along with a wealth of boutique shops, cafes, supermarket, primary school, churches, post office and health centre which all add to the community’s picture post-card attraction. For the foodies, there’s a butcher and deli, not to mention two local pubs, one of which was a 14th century coaching inn. The old-fashioned store selling everything for the home and garden, with the quaint name of Pickles, is particularly iconic. Modbury Primary School with its Forest School is currently rated as Good by Ofsted and has close links with the pre-school on the same site. Nestled between moors and coast, Modbury boasts excellent transport links situated on the A379 putting Plymouth and Kingsbridge within easy reach as well.
