About this property

A fantastic equestrian character property in a beautiful location with a 1 bedroom annexe, stables, barn with planning permission and approx 3 acres. The flexible accommodation offers use as a B&B. Further land available by separate negotiation.

A superb opportunity to purchase an ideal equestrian property with income potential in the heart of the South Hams close to local stables and beautiful hacks. The layout offers very flexible accommodation and could be lived in as two totally separate dwellings, with the 13th century part of the property being 2/3 bedrooms with its own entrance and the other with 4 bedrooms. It currently has a 1 bedroom annexe on the ground floor, totally self-contained and on the first floor 2 of the 6 bedrooms are being used for bed and breakfast. To add to this is a stone barn in good condition with outline planning permission to convert to a 3 storey property for residential or letting use, as well as the granary which could also be converted, subject to PP. The purpose built stable block and yard with 2 paddocks, in all approximately 3 acres, adds to the appeal of this opportunity. The house has an abundance of charming character features including an impressive sitting room with ceiling beams and a fireplace at each end of the room.
