Full description

A superb and detached converted barn in a tranquil, south-facing rural position just a mile or so from the sea at Beesands. Vaulted ceilings. 6 bedrooms. 3 Reception rooms. Paddock and Orchard. Approx 2 acres. Double Garage. Ample parking. EPC Band: D

Situation And Description - Huccombe is a small hamlet of just a handful of properties, in the folds of a beautiful and particularly tranquil South Hams valley. The nearest villages are Beeson and Stokenham, the latter of which has its own school and village amenities whilst Chillington, which has a post office/general stores and doctors surgery is a further half a mile or so. It is just over 1 mile from the coast at Beesands and 3 miles from Torcross, famous for its beach and also the Slapton Ley Nature Reserve whilst the towns of Kingsbridge and Dartmouth are some 5 and 10 miles distant respectively.

Converted around 1990, the barn affords superbly presented accommodation which extends to over 2,600 sq ft and has been designed on a reverse-level basis to take full advantage of its south-facing position. The principal accommodation is on the first floor and has vaulted ceiling and exposed roof timbers throughout. A particular feature of the accommodation on this level is the 23 dual aspect living room which has a log burner set in a double-sided fireplace at its heart that also serves the adjoining family/TV room. Planning permission has been obtained (but not yet actioned) to create a large balcony with steps leading down to the garden.

Accommodation - The light and airy dining room is also dual aspect with a full-height glazed panel to the side and, with another log burner, forms the hub of the barn. Planning permission has also been granted to create a doorway from the dining room onto the proposed balcony at the front of the building.

The kitchen has a contemporary yet country feel with an excellent range of in-built solid wood units with granite worktops and fully-fitted appliances. Also on this floor is a useful utility room, with ample storage space and a separate WC with two-piece suite.

The main front door is on the lower ground floor with an Oak door having glazed side screens leading to the tiled lobby and on to the spacious entrance hall and, from here, a further door leads to a sheltered walled courtyard which gets the evening sun. There are six good-sized bedrooms (master en-suite) and three bathrooms and there is also obvious scope to provide annexed accommodation at the rear of the property. Planning permission has also been granted to create a doorway from the master bedroom onto the terrace at the front of the building.

Outside - The property is approached over a macaddamed driveway which affords hardstanding room for numerous vehicles and access to the DOUBLE GARAGE. Planning permission has also been granted to extend the garage to create a further covered storage area.

Steps lead down from the drive to a large, south-facing terrace at the front of the building and further steps lead to the lawned front garden which is bordered with shrubs and trees.

On the higher side of the driveway there is a large sloping PADDOCK with a small orchard, as well as 2 charming wildlife ponds and fruit trees. Wonderful rural views are enjoyed from the upper parts of the paddock and, in total, the property extends to around TWO ACRES.

The property represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a wonderful family or holiday home. It has been successfully used as both a home and although it has been successfully holiday let in recent years and can be bought with ongoing rental income.
