About this property

A superbly converted 4 bedroom detached barn standing in about 1.2 acres commanding wide views, set in a hamlet just outside the popular South Hams village of Yealmpton.


The scattered hamlet of Dunstone lies in the unspoilt countryside of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just over a mile east of the comprehensively equipped village of Yealmpton. This location is remarkably accessible being 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.

Yealmpton offers a large health centre with dispensary, Post Office, general stores, café, hairdressers, optician, two pubs and primary school, and two churches. A regular bus route to Plymouth City Centre is about half a mile from the property. Mothecombe Beach is only 3.5 miles away, and Plymouth's City Centre and Waterfront 8 miles. The yachtsman's haven of Newton Ferrers is only 5 miles distant and the Dartmoor National Park is only about 10 minutes' drive to the north.


The detached barn was converted for the present owners in 1998. Architect designed to create a light and spacious family home which also takes advantage of the expansive views over the garden and to the countryside beyond this is welcoming and characterful house. Recent refurbishment has included complete redecoration and extensive re-fitting, including window replacement, garden landscaping and many other works.

The grounds not only include an easily maintained garden area, with south and west facing sun terrace, but also a large gently sloping paddock, and an old walled orchard area. There is ample parking, including a readily accessible space for two vehicles and a further large gated and partly walled driveway and parking area for many more, accessed by a right of way over a gravelled driveway.
