Kingsteignton is a small town located in Devon at the head of the Teign Estuary between the south Devon coastline and the rugged hills of Dartmoor, and is well situated for all the wider area has to offer. Originally founded in the 8th century Kingsteignton retains many older and historic properties including St Michaels Church that was built in the 15th century. Hackney Marshes nature reserve is close by offering some lovely secluded walks around the marshes and along the estuary to the Passage House Inn, as well as a mixed use walk/cycle path to Newton Abbot town quay. This forms part of the Stover Canal cycle route that takes you off road most of the way to Bovey Tracey.
There are opportunities for all types of water sports at nearby Teignmouth or Tor Bay, where there is also a deep water marina. The walks, pubs and Tors of Dartmoor are only a short drive away. If you enjoy cycling the Mid Devon Cycling Club is based in the town and is very active organising several events including the well-renowned Dartmoor Classic sportive. The Town also boasts a heated outdoor pool, rugby club (Newton Abbot RFC), football club, and even a racecourse. There are several golf clubs in the area, Teign Valley, Dainton, and Teignmouth.

Recently constructed in 2016 by Linden Homes this well thought out detached home still benefits from the balance of the NHBC guarantee. The house occupies one of the better positions on the development being one of only four houses on a small cul-de-sac overlooking a large green area to the front with trees that will mature with time, giving a good degree of privacy and safety for children out playing. The house is also set high enough that you can enjoy views over the surrounding countryside to the River Teign and Shaldon in the distance from the first floor. The orientation of the house also means that you can admire the sunrise from the front in the morning whilst the garden gets the best of the sun in the afternoon. The elevations are finished with a coloured render negating the need to regularly paint the property, with a tiled roof and double glazed uPVC windows. Being a modern property it is very efficient with an EPC rating of B and gas central heating. The split level layout works very well with an open plan family area as well as a separate sitting room that opens to the rear garden. Upstairs it gives the en suite master bedroom a nice feel of privacy and separation. The property has been well cared for and is presented to a high standard with a contemporary theme of décor throughout, all you need to do on moving in is decide where to place your furniture!
The current owners chose this particular property not only because of the location described above but also they felt it had a homely feel and suited their needs as a family well. The front door opens to an entrance vestibule where there is space to store coats and shoes out of the way, a door accesses the cloakroom/WC. The family kitchen/diner is well thought out and has space for a home work station and family dining table. The kitchen is well-equipped with a gloss white finish, wood effect worktops and plenty of storage. There is an inset induction hob with extractor over complimented by an eye level electric double oven and grill. Integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer and dishwasher, there is also space for an undercounter washing machine. Wood effect laminate flooring runs through the ground floor complimented by wood veneered doors. There is a useful under stair storage cupboard. The garage can be accessed from the ground floor and has the potential to house a utility area to the rear where the heating boiler is located, or if you do not need a garage it could be converted to further accommodation subject to the necessary permissions.
A short flight of stairs ascends to the sitting room with stylish engineered oak flooring. To the far wall is a floor to ceiling fitted storage unit, ideal for that music or book collection and to house all the modern audio visual entertainment gizmos. The room is flooded with natural light thanks to the large patio doors with windows to either side that give a view over, and access to, the garden.
A further short flight of stairs leads to the landing and three bedrooms, all of which would take a double bed if required. The two front bedrooms benefit from far reaching views over the surrounding area taking in part of the River Teign to Shaldon. Bedroom two has access to useful storage area in the space below the en suite shower room approx. 1m high. The family bathroom is on this level, part tiled with a stylish modern suite with chrome fittings, grey wood effect flooring, heated towel rail and an electric shower over the bath. The master bedroom is of generous proportions and benefits from a good degree of privacy and separation from the rest of the house being on a higher level with the door at the bottom of the stairs. There is plenty of room for furniture, or the room is ideally suited to having built in wardrobes to one end. The en suite shower room is spacious, part tiled with a modern white suite with chrome fittings, heated towel rail and thermostatic shower.
The front garden has been landscaped with areas of lawn, paving and a planted boarder adjoining the house. There is parking for up to three cars on the brick paved driveway and gravelled area plus the integrated single garage. A gated passageway to the right of the house give direct access to the rear garden and is ideal for bin, bike and surfboard storage. A removable fence panel to the left of the house leads to a further storage area where there is also a shed. The rear garden was landscaped by the current owners to maximise the useable space, and with a west, south west orientation it benefits from sun throughout much of the day. There is a paved terrace off the rear of the house, ideal for entertaining with plenty of space for outdoor furniture. Surrounding this is a level area of lawn with a further raised area of lawn retained by a wooden sleeper wall so that it only has a gentle slope to it. On the whole the garden is easy to maintain and ideal for busy families and is securely surrounded by wooden close board fencing.
