A friendly South Hams village with a lively community, Blackawton lies about halfway between Totnes and Kingsbridge (9 miles) and about five miles from Dartmouth. 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 a public house.

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.


Luscombe Maye are delighted to bring this quintessential country home to the market. A beautifully presented Grade II Listed cottage with an impressive contemporary and tasteful extension, sat in an acre of grounds, nestled into the heart of the countryside just outside of Blackawton village.

A stunning glass panelled front door opens into a large modern entrance hall, providing access to most of the principal rooms. The impressive curved architecture of the extension has created a spacious kitchen/dining room that captivates the immersive countryside views. The kitchen comprises matching hand built floor and wall units and a central island all with silestone worktop and stone floor tiles. The island is home to the breakfast bar and a double Belfast sink which overlooks the garden. There is a stylish electric Everhot range situated within the units and space for double fridge/freezer beyond. The floor to ceiling Crittal glass windows, mirrored on either side of the extension, open onto the large terrace and the skylight above the dining space allows for further natural light to flood the room.

Separate from the kitchen is a useful utility room with space and plumbing for washing machine, tumble dryer, sink and worktop space. Set to the side of the entrance hall, a snug room with featured panelling, original flagstone tiles and a stable door, offers itself to be a very versatile area and leads to further living space.

The living room is complemented by the painted wood beam ceiling and a large, exposed stone fireplace with original bread oven and a central wood burner highlighting the original features of the cottage. A few steps lead to a bedroom with a mezzanine area, which is considered another versatile room within the home.

The original stone newell staircase ascends to the first floor landing which provides access to four double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master suite benefits from dual aspect windows framing the breath taking views .There is a tasteful ensuite bathroom with tiled floor, walk-in rainfall shower, W.C and double hand basin, and a dressing room with plenty of fitted hanging space. The further three double bedrooms are also situated on the south side of the property and have the same pleasant views of the rolling Devon hills.

Approaching the property a large gated driveway offers parking space for multiple cars and an electric car charging station and steps lead to the front door. To the rear a large terrace sits before the cedar cladding extension and wraps around to the original cottage front. The south facing position creates fantastic indoor/outdoor living with multiple areas to sit back and enjoy the view. Located in the corner of the garden is a fantastic garden room/studio with a veranda overlooking the orchard and lawn area. Beyond, the plot continues towards the lower tree line.
