Formerly part of the Raleigh Estate, Chipton Barton is situated on a peaceful single track lane and within a mile’s short walk of the River Dart Trail, a stunning woodland walk starting on the shores of Old Mill Creek and taking you through the woods and up over Fire Beacon Hill to Dittisham.

Dittisham village, one of the most sought after villages in the South Hams, has a thriving community with a church, a post office/general store, two pubs, a waterside café and a popular sailing club.

The larger nearby waterside town of Dartmouth, home to the Britannia Royal Naval College offers a wonderful array of shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, a leisure centre, supermarket and cinema.

Description

Chipton Farmhouse is a beautiful Grade II listed property built largely in the 1800s that is in need of some modernisation. The house has a welcoming entrance hall with flagstone slate floor that leads to well-proportioned and bright reception rooms, including a living room with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, a traditional farmhouse kitchen with Watson Range and a dining room. All reception rooms overlook the front gardens and there are a number of French doors leading to the south facing terrace. The house offers five bedrooms on the first floor and a further two in the eves of the house. Adjoining the farmhouse is a two storey annexe providing a self-contained ‘cottage’ of open plan kitchen and sitting room with wood burning stove, two first floor bedrooms and a bathroom.

The Linhay and The Cottage, a further two guest properties within the grounds, are both well-presented and offer two bedrooms each with open plan living areas, private gardens and parking. There are a wonderful range of outbuildings, including The Long Barn, a substantial stone built two storey long barn currently used as a workshop and The Cider Barn, a Grade II listed stone barn with two storeys and the original cider press still in situ.

The gardens at Chipton Farmhouse are beautifully presented and very well established offering a wealth of colour and a variety of different flowers and shrubs. The front garden is walled and offers high level of privacy with a full width flagstone terrace adjoining the house. Within the garden is a refurbished barn containing a swimming pool. The side lawn in summer months is used as a croquet lawn. There is ample parking and The Long Barn provides garaging for numerous vehicles if required. Beyond The Long Barn lies further gardens with lawns, a vegetable patch and a level area previously used as a grass tennis court.
