A substantial barn conversion set in approx. 4 acres of private gardens and woodland with outdoor heated swimming pool.
Converted in the late 1980’s the two barns were linked together to provide a superb and substantial family home measuring 3000sq ft with surrounding woodland which provides a haven for wildlife. Entered on the first floor the welcoming entrance hall has a cloakroom and steps to double doors which open through to the sitting/ dining room. A beautifully proportioned room with feature open fireplace and windows looking down to the pool. The vaulted ceilings with exposed roof trusses run through to adjoining kitchen with granite worktops, Belfast sink and range cooker. Off the ground floor hall there are two bedrooms each having en-suite bathrooms and a second kitchen. An open walkway leads through to a lobby and spacious central living room with French doors and windows looking out to the gardens. The study has stairs to the first floor and walkway to the generous master bedroom with en-suite shower room. Upstairs there are two further double bedrooms with part vaulted ceilings and roof trusses and a family bathroom.
The driveway sweeps down to the barn providing ample parking with a carport and detached stone garage with storeroom above. To the side is a sheltered patio seating area backed by mature exotic planted borders. To the rear is a west facing terrace with steps down to the outdoor swimming pool. The gardens are surrounded by native woodlands which provide a haven for wildlife.
The property is tucked away in a peaceful rural setting surrounded by woodland on the edge of the hamlet of Ashford. The thriving village of Aveton Gifford is only a short distance away and has a range of amenities including a public house with a restaurant, church, nursery/primary school and village shop. The village also has a tennis club, cricket club, children’s playground and a large green within walking distance. The Georgian town of Modbury with an interesting variety of shops is to the north and Kingsbridge which has a more comprehensive shopping centre is to the south. To the east lies the Avon River and Estuary which is renowned for its abundance of wild fowl. The River Avon is navigable downstream to Bantham and out to sea, tide permitting. The nearest sandy beaches are Bigbury on Sea, Bantham and Burgh Island, surrounded by outstanding scenery and cliff tops of the South Hams coastline, much of which is now owned by the National Trust. Also nearby are the sailing centres based at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, as well as 18 hole golf courses at Bigbury and Thurlestone. Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the north and provides a backdrop to the area which must surely rank as one of the most beautiful in the country.
