Eight-bedroomed Edwardian gem with separate coach house in the South Hams
Built in the early 1900s, Lower Coombe Royal is hidden away in eight acres of historic gardens on the edge o f Kingsbridge.
The magnificent Edwardian house and quaint coach house are approached along a rhododendron-lined drive. Overlooking landscaped ponds, the main house has glamorous, light-filled reception rooms and faces south west across its own private valley.
The property is currently divided into four dwellings. As well as the separate coach house, the main house is divided into three to include two apartments. The main house could easily be restored to its original eight bedrooms and five bathrooms.
In addition, there is a large attic which offers obvious scope for conversion and views across the beautiful Kingsbridge estuary.
The 200-year-old coach house was fully restored and extended in 2007 to offer cosy, three-bedroomed accommodation. It is used as a holiday let.
The gardens of Lower Coombe Royal are a horticulturalist's delight, with an abundance of rhododendrons, camellias and hydrangea, as well as many specimen trees. The two-acre American Garden was laid out by the then owner John Luscombe in the mid-1800s. It is named after the newly discovered plants sent back from the New World.
