Further Information

Gerston dates back to William the Conqueror, with the original dwelling having been built on the site in 1088. About ten years ago, the former manor house and barns at Gerston were beautifully refurbished and converted, with South Manor forming the major part of the original manor house. South Manor offers superb and versatile accommodation comprising a beautiful living room with high vaulted ceiling and woodburner, a large family room that would make a substantial third bedroom, a well appointed kitchen/breakfast room complete with integral appliances, a gorgeous dining room with exposed stone walling and part vaulted ceiling and a study. In addition there are two further bedrooms both with en suite bath/shower rooms. Adjoining South Manor is South Manor Cottage, a charming property that can be incorporated with ease into the main house or used as it currently is, as a holiday let providing a rental
income. The cottage offers an entrance hall, living room / dining room with inglenook fireplace, kitchen and a spacious first floor
bedroom with bathroom.

A converted barn provides an office / studio and log store to the rear of the main house. In addition there is a double garage with remote controlled door and pitched roof providing further storage.

The grounds are a wonderful feature of South Manor with enclosed gardens for both the house and the cottage. The established Devon hedgerow that borders the main lawned garden and orchard encourages an abundance of wildlife. There is a large gravelled parking area for numerous vehicles. A grass track shared by the few neighbours of South Manor, provides
both vehicular and pedestrian access to the banks of the Salcombe and Kingsbridge estuary, a stunning setting which offers a wonderful place to enjoy a picnic and a slipway from which to launch your small boat or dinghy.
