Full description

An immaculately presented 5 bedroom detached barn conversion with attractive private gardens and countryside views situated on the outskirts of Modbury and providing superb family accommodation.

Butterwell Barn was converted approximately 17 years ago from two barns and is linked by an attractive reception hall/sun room. One barn consists of the kitchen/dining room with the sitting room above and the other houses the bedrooms. It is presented to an extremely high standard throughout and provides superb family accommodation.

Modbury is a picturesque Georgian town situated in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', and is only about 4 miles from the nearest beach. Some two hundred years ago it was extremely prosperous being the local market town and a centre for the wool trade. Today there is a good range of local shops. Other amenities include a primary school, health centre, dentist, optician, veterinary surgery and mobile library and Lloyds bank. For more comprehensive shopping, Kingsbridge is to the South and Plymouth is about 12 miles to the West. Modbury is on the main bus route and is also only about 5.5 miles from the A38. Nearby, there are fine cliff top and coastal walks, beaches and coves, with sailing at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers and 18 hole golf courses at Thurlestone and Bigbury. Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the North.
