THE PROPERTY Buyers would not find themselves closer to the heart of South Hams countryside than they would if they moved to a traditional South Devon farmhouse and Higher Poulston is certainly one of those. Built of stone, with a slated roof and slate hanging, it stands on the southern edge of the former Higher Poulston farmstead with pleasant views across open farmland from its mainly south-facing double-glazed windows. Recently modernised by the present owners, it retains much of its original charm and character and it is large enough for use as a main house with a secondary annex or for division into two separate units - the house has three reception rooms, a large kitchen/breakfast room, seven bedrooms and three bathrooms and for some years, the house was occupied as two separate cottages before being converted back into a single house.

Outside, a sizeable, walled garden extends around the south and west sides of the house with lawns, shrub borders and beds. There is a long paved terrace In front of the house with a colourful flower/shrub border and outside the kitchen's glazed door a paved area and a terrace beneath a timber framed pergola clad with roses and climbers. In a courtyard behind the house is a Warmflow oil fired boiler. Beyond the garden is a newly built open fronted timber garage with insulated walls.

 

HALWELL & HARBERTONFORD Halwell is a small village but has a long history, having been one of the four burhs of Devon in the tenth century, only to be superseded by Totnes 100 years or so later. In the village are the 15th century St Leonard's Church and the Old Inn. The village is equidistant of Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. The sea is within about twenty minutes and Dartmoor twenty. There is a full choice of facilities at Totnes including a Paddington line station and a primary school and a village shop at Harbertonford, just down the road. Harbertonford has a good range of community facilities including a church, primary school, post office/general stores, hall, petrol station and pub.
