Christopher’s South Hams are pleased to offer to market this beautifully restored Grade II Listed converted barn set in this rural yet convenient spot on the outskirts of Modbury.
Despite being attached, there is a great sense of privacy in this very attractive property as it showcases stone elevations with dressed brick quoins beneath a natural slate roof. Harraton Barns is approached via a shared driveway which leads to a private parking and turning area with space for a number of vehicles. A cottage style front lawn and seating area welcomes you into the large double aspect sitting room highlighted by a feature oak and glass stairway. This room boasts several features including double height windows, a stylish polished concrete floor as well as a log burner. With high ceilings and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, the barn blends its obvious character charm with a contemporary feel. Beyond this room is the well-appointed kitchen/diner with a range of integrated appliances including self-cleaning oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge (there is also further space available for an American style fridge/freezer). Downstairs also offers a cloakroom, shower room and utility room with space and plumbing for washing machine/tumble drier. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms including a master with ensuite shower room. Three of the bedrooms are doubles with the 4th being a large single and there is an immaculate family bathroom as well. Upstairs also features high vaulted ceilings giving a further nod to this home’s history.
Outside, the main garden lies to the rear. Fantastically landscaped, this terraced space offers various paved seating areas from which to enjoy time with family and friends; there is also a useful stone outbuilding which can be accessed from the seating areas. The garden can be accessed from both the sitting room and kitchen as well as the driveway. A hidden bonus to the barn is 0.8 acre of a paddock. Currently accessed via an Agricultural Right of Way, however, it may be possible to build steps from the rear terrace giving direct access from the garden and immersing it back into the barn’s features (strc). Combining country cosy and contemporary, this striking conversion is most certainly a ‘must-see’!

There’s a pretty spot as you enter the picture-postcard town of Modbury from the Plymouth direction, which has been in the care of Devon Wildlife Trust since 1986. Follow the footpath through woodland and discover ancient hedge banks and small streams. This area is known for rare species of flower and is home to brown bats, dormice, blue tits and nuthatches.
Modbury is an architectural delight with dignified Georgian terraced townhouses, slate-hung walls, quaint shop windows, and classical doorways; an historical urban landscape within a charming rural setting. It is the rich history and traditional charm that draws many people to visit and want to live here, along with a wealth of boutique shops, cafes, supermarket, primary school, churches, post office and health centre which all add to the community’s attraction. For the foodies, there’s a butcher and deli, not to mention two local pubs, one of which was a 14th century coaching inn. The old-fashioned store selling everything for the home and garden, with the quaint name of Pickles, is particularly iconic. Modbury Primary School with its Forest School is rated as Good by Ofsted and has close links with the pre-school on the same site. Nestled between moors and coast, Modbury boasts excellent transport links situated on the A379 putting Plymouth and Kingsbridge within easy reach as well.
