With the spring flowers beginning to bloom through the thicket lined lanes, Briar Cottage is aptly named and is a welcome sight on the corner of this very pretty rural hamlet.
Christopher’s South Hams are delighted to market this stunning detached barn conversion which has been beautifully renovated and extended by the current owners. Every room in this gorgeous home embraces the magnificent south-west facing views towards the Erme Valley. From the large bay window in the living room to the double doors from the kitchen to the alfresco patio, this barn truly absorbs its outstanding landscape. The main barn offers flexible living with three double bedrooms spread over the two floors. The master bedroom upstairs offers an extensive range of built-in wardrobes within its own dressing area and there is an abundance of storage cupboards throughout. There are two luxurious shower rooms, again adding to the flexibility of this home. The utterly spectacular kitchen/dining room literally takes centre stage and delights in the garden views and enveloping scenery. This superb barn also offers an outbuilding with guest suite which increases the opportunities for growing teenagers, dependent relatives, or even home offices/hobbies and crafts/gym or bar. With the addition of a kitchen, this could be converted to a separate annexe – subject to the relevant consents. The outbuilding also houses a garage and utility/store room. Outside a solid timber gate leads to a parking and turning area with ample space for a number of vehicles. Beyond lies the private landscaped south-west facing garden with newly paved patio, sweeping lawn and again immerses in the panoramic countryside views. Of special note is the original well in the garden which is currently linked to a pump and provides water for the garden. This captivating property perfectly balances its rural yet convenient location with a contemporary lifestyle and viewings are highly recommended.

Penquit is the quintessential image of a true Devon hamlet showcasing a mixture of chocolate-box barn conversions and historical farmhouses set within country lanes only 1½ miles from the pretty village of Ermington. Nestled within the enviable rolling South Hams hills, Ermington is approximately three miles outside of Ivybridge and around twelve miles from the vibrant waterfront city of Plymouth. There is easy access to both Dartmoor and the beaches of the South Hams Coastline, in particular the Yealm Estuary at Newton Ferrers & Noss Mayo and there are also plenty of nearby public footpaths for some glorious countryside walks.
The historic village is home to the attractive church of St Peter and St Paul with its famous crooked spire and its namesake pub, a charming bistro as well as a boutique hotel and restaurant. Ermington’s primary school is currently rated as outstanding and with its focus on community, the village shop, café, park and green have space to regularly host various clubs and groups as well as events laid on by the village committee. The hive of activity on offer certainly has all a growing family, or the retired could wish for. Nearby towns of Ivybridge, Yealmpton and Modbury offer a wealth of amenities between them, including GP and Dental Surgeries, a minor injuries unit, two leisure centres with swimming pools, Libraries, Rugby, Football, Cricket and Tennis Clubs. Access to Exeter and Plymouth are made easy via the A38 and there is the Penzance-Paddington/London mainline from Ivybridge train station as well.
