About this property

A superb 5 double bedroom barn conversion, finished to a high standard and providing spacious living accommodation set within 3.5 acres, with potential to purchase an additional 5 acres with stables.

Ludbrook is a small Hamlet in the popular South Hams situated between the villages of Ugborough and Ermington and between Dartmoor National Park to the north and a beautiful stretch of coastline to the south. Ugborough is a charming old South Hams village set in beautiful countryside, mentioned in the Domesday Book, with a long history dating back to Saxon times. Today, there is a primary school, a restaurant/pub and the 12th century church flanks one end of the large village square, where the annual fair is still held. For more comprehensive shopping there is Ivybridge to the west, Modbury to the south and Plymouth is within easy commuting distance via the A379 or A38.

This newly converted substantial barn sits in an enviable position commanding superb rural views down a valley located in the small hamlet of Ludbrook and within easy commuting distance of Modbury. The barn offers a superb amount of light open plan living space with a full height glass wall incorporating three sets of French doors leading out to a wonderful Mediterranean style courtyard. The property offers an immense amount of character and rustic charm and incorporates an array of bespoke hand-crafted details including an imposing staircase made out of reclaimed timbers. The accommodation is both spacious and flexible with 5 five double bedrooms and an additional open plan living area on the first floor. Outside the property is approached over a gravel drive where there is ample parking including a detached double garage and laundry room, which offers the potential to be extended or converted into an annexe.
