Alleron is a Grade II listed property believed to date back, at its oldest part, to the 16th century whilst the Regency front was added in the 19th century. This makes for a very light house, for the most part built with good Georgian proportions, tall ceilings and sash windows.

The present layout provides for comfortable family living, with more formal rooms for entertaining. Modern central heating and insulation have been added in recent years while many of the outbuildings were all modernised at the end of the 1990s.

Ground floor accommodation comprises the entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, larder and a summer dining room. The first floor houses the main bedroom suite, including a dressing room and three further en-suite bedrooms plus two further bedrooms and a family shower rooms.

Outside a barn has been converted into a pretty cottage and the games room has been renovated into a superb outdoor boys’ room with its own bar, as well as a changing room for the swimming pool. The previous owner had a collection of old cars and provided some very well-built accommodation for five to six cars together with workshops.

In the grounds are stables, kennels, the swimming pool and some beautiful gardens, as well as a unique listed circular walled garden. There are also paddocks, woodland and stocked lakes – the grounds come to around 41 acres.

Alleron is peacefully situated just outside Loddiswell just four miles north of Kingsbridge in Devon which boasts good local amenities in the heart of the South Hams. The A38 is around seven miles.
