About this property

A traditional detached farmhouse with stone barn and separate stone garage/studio, standing in gardens of about 1.4 acre forming a sheltered dell quietly set in outstanding countryside within 3 miles of the coast, and within easy reach of the A38.


North Fursdon Farm offers a rare combination of seclusion and privacy while also being remarkably conveniently set within easy reach of the one of the most undeveloped and beautiful parts of the South Devon coast, and yet close to quick road links to the A38 and M5, and both Plymouth and Exeter. The comprehensively equipped village of Yealmpton is only 2 miles away and the yachtsman's haven of Newton Ferrers is only 4 miles distant. Dartmoor is only about 10 minutes' drive to the north.

Protected by being within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the property nestles in a delightful partly wooded dell at the end of a small lane which only serves a couple of other properties. The beauty of this setting has to be seen to be appreciated. The garden, which encircles the house, is private and sheltered, with various fruit trees, sweeping lawns, all leading down to a pond, well, and a small stream creating a serene natural wildlife habitat.

The immensely characterful farmhouse boasts thick stone walls, exposed timbers and classically proportioned window openings. Engineered oak floors and herringbone patterned areas are to be found in principal parts of the ground floor, and there are Efel and Jotul woodburners in the kitchen and sitting room. The large Amdega conservatory is equipped with underfloor heating. The westernmost, one bedroom, portion of the farmhouse could form separate accommodation and has, in the past, been used as a holiday letting.

The detached stone garage has, on the upper floor, a most useful studio/workspace and store.
The detached stone barn in the rear garden is over 38ft in length, with high ceiling, and reproduction flagstone floor. Adjoining Garden Store.
