About this property

A unique and rare opportunity to acquire a farmhouse in need of renovation with traditional barns and up to 18 acres of farmland. Potential for development STPP.

Minchinhay Farm is set in the beautiful and picturesque South Hams countryside, near to Holbeton village.

Holbeton is a civil parish and village located 9 miles south east of Plymouth in the South Hams. Set back from the wooded shores of the River Erme, the parish includes several historic estates including Flete which has a beautiful beach at Mothecombe. Within the village itself is a well-equipped local store and post office, a public house, a local primary school, a village hall and playing fields where many activities including amateur dramatic plays, festivals, and sports events are hosted.

The property consists of a 4 bedroom farmhouse in need of total renovation, with 2 stone built barns located around a central concrete courtyard. Two modern agricultural barns, in need of repair, are also included. Approximately 15 acres of further farmland are available by separate negotiation.

From the road, a shared driveway leads you to the property (marked yellow on the plan provided), with the later part for the sole use of this property.

The farmhouse comprises of a sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen and scullery on the ground floor, and four bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate WC, on the first floor. Attached to the farmhouse is a two storey barn which is divided into two areas with a further wood store and utility room attached.

There is also an option to acquire, by separate negotiation, further agricultural barns which are currently owned by the previous tenant and shown within some of the photographs. If not required these will be removed before completion. In addition to this, the pond can also be filled in prior to completion, if required.

Planning permission has been granted for 14 new homes, which will be visible from the property. Artist impressions and further information is available on request.

Those viewing should use caution at all times and enter buildings at their own risk.
