Welcome to the Manor House in Coffinswell, our stunning Property of the Week set amid the rolling South Devon hills.

The Manor House is on the market for £1,795,000 and features a detached country home with beautiful private gardens, as well as a separate cottage and extensive barn, with planning permission for conversion.

Dating back to the 16th century, the Manor House combines elegance and comfort in a light and spacious home in the picturesque rural setting of Coffinswell, a wonderful South Devon village positioned neatly between Torquay and Newton Abbot.

Stepping through the wisteria-covered entrance porch into the Manor House, the main reception rooms are ideally placed for access to the gardens and the lounge area boasts a marble fireplace and French doors to the terrace.

The neighbouring drawing room is even bigger than the lounge, also includes French doors to the terrace and a spectacular grand fireplace with a warming wood burner.

Walking through this historic building, there is the added charm of the old timbers and beams.

The kitchen and dining room are connected through double doors, with fabulous granite worktops in the kitchen, an oil-fired Aga and plenty of storage space. The dining room then leads into the conservatory, with a glazed roof.
