A charming and quirky Grade II listed cottage located in the favoured residential village of Churston, famed for its easy access to many stunning coastal walks, beaches, woodland walks all within a stunning conservation area with the idyllic Devonshire countryside surrounding the village in every direction. The village has a cracking central pub the Churston Manor set in a 12th-century manor, this refined hotel is a great locals pub and offers food service and enjoys stunning character and extensive gardens. Adjacent is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, a stunning grade II listed church which was used by Agatha Christie and indeed has a stained glass window which she donated.
Johns Cottage is only a brief walk away from the picturesque Elberry Cove and 2 miles from the hustle and bustle of the port town of Brixham. This makes it a convenient countryside retreat, with the rest of Torbay easily accessed via car or by the very regular 12 bus service which can be found at the end of the lane.
The property has been within the same family for many years and would now benefit from refurbishment throughout. The possibilities are vast and the house has the potential for a substantial extension or additional property creating a marvellous family home and retaining Johns cottage true to form. The project would benefit from the input of a good architect with experience in the field of Grade II listing and conservation areas, but that said the plot and location makes it worth the effort as properties in this location with such a good amount of space seldom become available.
