Christopher’s South Hams are delighted to present this superb barn conversion tucked away from the bustle of the town yet only a short walk from the high street.
This semi-detached home is visually attractive with stone elevations beneath a slate roof and despite its clear period charm, is not a listed property. Lovingly converted with attention to detail to retain its original character, some notable features include exposed stonework around the deep window recesses and arrow-slit windows which functioned as ventilation openings when the building was part of a working farm.
The barn is accessed from Pound Farm Lane with a private driveway and parking. From here, the high gates in the boundary stone wall lead onto the original cobbled courtyard.
The well-appointed accommodation comprises a beautiful farmhouse-style kitchen with a walk-in cupboard, utility/boot room with plumbing to complete a downstairs cloakroom and a generous sitting/dining room with oak flooring and patio doors leading onto the courtyard. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms including a master with ensuite shower room that is primed for a little completing and a fourth single bedroom with exposed beams and high ceiling, currently used as a study. There is also a substantial family bathroom with separate bath and shower. The landing and study are finished in oak hardwood flooring.
Outside a south-facing mature cottage garden welcomes you with its original large granite pound stone where apples were crushed to make cider. Also in the courtyard there is a woodshed and large outbuilding both made from original stone. Leading on to the lower secluded wildlife and vegetable garden there is a large workshop. All outbuildings have light and power connected and lend themselves to a variety of uses (strc).
Brimming with opportunity, this utterly delightful home lures you into another world entirely and viewings are highly recommended.
