HOW TO GET THERE & VIEWING Please do not visit this property without having made an appointment to do so.

TQ9 7DD. On the A1322 between Halwell and Dartmouth, turn right [south] at Oldstone Cross, signposted Strete, Slapton & Torcross. After one mile, take the first entrance lane on the left [signposted Middle Wadstray], and then the first right down to the farm yard. 

BLACKAWTON Little Wadstray is 1¼ miles east of Blackawton and 4¼ miles from North Embankment at Dartmouth. A friendly South Hams village with a lively community, Blackawton lies about halfway between Totnes and Kingsbridge. The historic parish church of St. Michael is the village's principle landmark and Blackawton also has a primary school with an excellent reputation, a large and well-used village hall, a post office, a shop and two public houses. Dartmouth, Totnes and Kingsbridge all have good facilities including secondary schools, and at Totnes there is a main line railway station. With Dartmoor on one side and the coast on the other, the South Hams is host to a wide range of recreational and sporting pursuits.
 

THE PROPERTY Ripe for redevelopment and situated in a quiet location just outside Blackawton and four miles from Dartmouth is Little Wadstray, bought by the present owner in 1959 for £3,400. Standing in a total of 2.017 acres [0.83 ha], Little Wadstray offers all sorts of opportunities for buyers, for it comes with not only a detached farmhouse, but also a detached stone barn with residential planning permission, a detached former parlour, two large modern farm buildings and a paddock.

The farmhouse has about 1,560 square feet of room which most buyers would want to modernise and perhaps to rearrange and it stands in an attractive garden which could be extended into the part of the field at the back included in the sale.

The stone barn has full residential planning consent for conversion into a two bedroom property. A brick former milking parlour stands behind the house and would seem to have potential [subject to planning permission] for conversion to an annex. The paddock lies behind the covered yard and extends to about 1.06 acres [0.43 ha]. Little Wadstray is for sale as a whole.
