Tenure: Freehold

Originally built for one of the captains on Nelsons Victory, this mini estate is set in beautiful rolling countryside with some views of the sea. A selection of outbuildings, including a coach house offering secondary accommodation. The grounds extend to around 19.75 acres

Trafalgar Barton is a magnificent, elegant mini estate of great character and charm. Approached up its own driveway, the property sits in a tranquil and private setting, with magnificent views over the valley to the south west, and views of the sea to the south. The house itself has a rich history, having been built by Captain Yule who served as a lieutenant on HMS Victory during The Battle of Trafalgar.

The current owners have extensively renovated the house during their tenure, creating an extremely well appointed family home. The formal reception rooms are south west facing and of excellent proportions, with beautiful views across the valley. The large sash windows are particularly impressive and flood the rooms with natural light.

The impressive staircase leads to a stunning galleried landing on the first floor from which the bedrooms are accessed. The master bedroom is of particular note with sea views to the south and an en-suite shower room.

As well as numerous outbuildings there is a Coach House with a two bedroomed flat on the first floor and a Dolls House, a delightful stone building styled as a cottage and currently used as an artists studio. Opposite the Coach House is a private and rose garden. To the south and west of the house are rockery gardens, lawns and herbaceous borders & above the house is a partly walled vegetable garden. A number of fields and paddocks surround the house.
