West Pitten is a small hamlet in the South Hams surrounded by open countryside with wonderful distant views of Dartmoor on the horizon. It is well located about one mile from the A38 Plymouth to Exeter expressway and about 1½ miles from Yealmpton village. Plymouth is easily accessible and is renowned for its beautiful waterfront and also served by an excellent shopping centre, large University, regional hospital and main line railway station (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours). Plymouth also has a cross channel ferry port providing regular services to France and Northern Spain.
Sailing enthusiasts will enjoy the yachting and social life of Newton Ferrers at the mouth of the River Yealm, Dartmouth, Salcombe and the excellent marinas in the Plymouth Sound. The South Hams has magnificent coastal footpaths including the Erme Plym Trail which extends for about 12 miles, for walking, riding and cycling. There are numerous golf courses with country clubs in the area together with many other country pursuits including coarse and fly fishing.

Believed to date back to the 1600`s the property was formerly the milking parlour and cow barn; now grade II Listed, the property is of interesting architectural appeal with handsome granite elevations, exposed beams and many other intriguing features. The Farm and neighbouring barns have all been sympathetically renovated to form a small hamlet of six properties that enjoy the stunning rural scenery while still boasting easy access to both Plymouth and Exeter. The house has five double bedrooms with the master being en suite, family bathroom and ground floor shower room. The living room is an impressive space and boasts a minstrels gallery, vaulted ceiling and large arched picture window.

Also on the ground floor is a useful snug which the present owners utilize as a music room.
Outside the property is approached over a long driveway (in the ownership of the Lyneham Estate) leading down to the barns. To one side of the property is a drive and parking area leading to the double garage. The grounds are approximately an acre most of which is lawn with an orchard at the far end . A large deck and patio take full advantage of the rural outlook and provide a shaded place to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquility. To the west of the house and hidden from view, are storage sheds and a workshop.

A note from the owners
We moved into North Barn 17 years ago when our daughter was 13 years old and our son was 8. It was an idyllic place to grow up for both of them. Our son spent hours playing in the garden with friends and our daughter loved sleepovers with many of her friends ‘camping out` in the large living room. The house is perfect for entertaining and we have had many parties here, especially when there was an enormous Christmas tree in the living room and decorations everywhere!
The location was perfect for us as work was just a 15 minute drive away in opposite directions. The access to the A38 means that travel is very quick and easy, yet the position of the house ensures perfect calm and tranquillity at the end of a busy work day. The only uninvited visitors are rabbits, squirrels, quail and pheasants, with the occasional duck or two.
We are now both retired and our children grown up, so it is time to downsize. We want to return to Cornwall where we started out and where our daughter now lives. The house is ready for a new family who will love it as much as we do – it is a very special place to live.
