Two stone barns create stunning home

Combe Thatch is the stunning result of a double conversion of two stone barns, which was originally part of an estate that was owned by Viscount Courtenay and was first documented in 1777.

Located in Combe, a rural hamlet located in a valley between the popular waterside location of Salcombe and the thriving village of Malborough, this four bedroom property was part of an original farmstead that was leased to a tenant farmer before the end of the 18th Century and was used as a dwelling, hand flail threshing barn and possibly a granary.

Converted in 1994, Combe Thatch is largely thatched with a slate tiled roof on a more recent extension. The first floor is divided into two wings with two bedrooms in each.

Attractive timber-framed windows permit plenty of natural light to permeate throughout Combe Thatch's interior which includes a generous sitting room, dining hall and modern open plan living space - all given extra character with a whole host of original exposed beams and rafters.

Nestled in the heart of the South Devon countryside, the property enjoys soothing rural views. Its near acre of attractive landscaped gardens, complete with an enclosed paved courtyard and walled pond, includes a recently refurbished two-bedroom annexe, workshop, car port, double ended garage and plenty of off road parking accessed by a driveway that connects two separate gated entrances.

Marchand Petit in Salcombe is marketing this property and Director Harriet Cundy said: “Combe Thatch is a truly lovely double-thatched four bedroom barn conversion with a recently refurbished annexe amid landscaped gardens located in a peaceful hamlet with easy access to South Sands and the amenities in Malborough. I would recommend this property to anyone interested in peaceful living in a beautiful home.”

Combe Thatch is on the market at a guide price of £1,295,000 through Marchand Petit’s Salcombe office. Further details may be obtained by telephoning 01548 844473
