A very attractive and spacious individual detached house set in extensive gardens, backing onto fields, in this picturesque village. Parking. Council Tax Band G, EPC Band C, Freehold


Applecombe is a most attractive, substantial, detached house which was individually designed and built for the original owner, a builder, for his own occupation in 2000. It has natural stone-faced front elevations under a slate roof.

The generous, well presented and well proportioned accommodation is very versatile with excellent reception, bedroom and en-suite facilities. There is an option of a downstairs bedroom, ideal for a dependent relative. All the rooms enjoy delightful views over the village, the surrounding countryside and hills, with sea glimpses.

The impressive specification includes gas-fired central heating, uPVC sealed unit windows, oak flooring to reception, water softener, security alarm system plus attractive kitchen and bathroom fittings.

The gardens are a further attractive feature, being secluded, landscaped and well stocked, backing onto open fields, together with extensive parking and a detached double garage.


Applecombe is set well back (roughly 100 metres) and screened, being approached over a long gravelled driveway (under the ownership of the property, although initially shared by two other properties) leading to a 5-bar gate and onto a large graveled driveway with excellent turning and parking facilities with potential for caravan/boat storage.

There is a detached double garage with power and light and external stoneware sink with water tap and log store area.

The gravel driveway continues to the front of the house and bordered by attractive low stone retaining walls.

The front gardens have been attractively laid out and landscaped with large areas of lawn together with well stocked flower and shrub borders, featuring a circular paved terrace with ornamental pond. Immediately adjoining the house, to the south side, is a sheltered large courtyard with water feature/fountain, side pedestrian access to both sides. The rear gardens back onto fields and are principally down to lawn interspersed with a variety of fruit trees and also featuring small beds for vegetables/fruit.


Applecombe occupies a private and elevated position close to the village centre . Tucked away and backs onto open countryside with open views over the village and the surrounding hills towards the sea.
