About this property

Rare opportunity to acquire a charming farmhouse style cottage with superb equestrian facilities with substantial outbuildings set within 4 and half acres in a truly unique setting with open rural views across the neighbouring Flete Estate.

Approached via a private drive you are greeted immediately by glorious open views across the Flete valley and beautiful wooded slopes forming a perfect backdrop. From here there is a large parking area with access to a stable yard and range of stone outbuildings providing ample storage and garage space. The farmhouse offers an immense amount of character and charm with a delightful enclosed walled garden at the front of the property. From here the front door opens into a porch and spacious hallway with doors to the principle rooms, cloakroom and stairs to the first floor. The accommodation is well-proportioned offering comfortable living accommodation including a 25" sitting room with an imposing stone fire place with wood burner and double doors opening into a beautiful Orangery enjoying a fine aspect over the landscaped gardens and grounds. The farmhouse style kitchen/dining room forms the hub of the house and has been fitted with a range of bespoke cupboards and units incorporating an Aga and space for a separate electric cooker. From the hallway there are two steps down into a spacious study or additional reception room if required. Also on the ground floor is a good size utility/laundry room with plenty of storage space. From here is a rear lobby/boot room with built in cupboards leading out to the gardens. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms including a most impressive master suite with a newly fitted modern en-suite shower room and dressing area. The family bathroom has also been completely renewed to a contemporary and luxury standard.

Outside the main gardens have been thoughtfully landscaped with a wide expanse of lawn sweeping around the property with an abundance of plantings, mature trees and plenty of space for entertaining and enjoying the outdoors taking in the exceptional views which can be viewed from all aspects of the gardens and grounds. A terraced garden with vegetable plot and small fenced paddock is accessed from the main drive and parking area.
The outbuildings include a substantial stone barn and timber built barn which offer potential to convert to ancillary accommodation, subject to necessary planning consent. Further outbuildings include a separate stable block with tack room and adjoining double garage. In front of the stables and running alongside the land is a fenced Ménage.

Ermington Village and Parish is nestled in the heart of the beautiful South Hams in Devon, sandwiched between the nearby towns of Ivybridge and Modbury, and other villages such as Ugborough. Local dining includes The First and Last bistro and the Plantation House. Ermington also has its own village shop and primary school with an extremely good reputation and there is a new village shop.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.

In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
