About this property
A Grade II listed early 17th Century detached house, with spacious ancillary accommodation, stables and paddocks, totalling in all about 3 acres.
West Pitten is a small grouping of residences, several of which are listed, set off a private drive set in countryside about two miles north of the well- equipped and popular village of Yealmpton, surrounded by glorious South Hams countryside. The gateposts to Mullion lead to a private inner drive which opens up to an impressive, partly granite sett, forecourt of the house, which to one side of which there is a double garage with studio above. Equestrian facilities include a modern block of 2 loose boxes, store and tack room arranged around a brick paved and concrete yard, giving easy access to the paddock.
The listing detail of the originally early 17th Century Mullions is testimony to the fascination of this highly individual house. Externally, the west elevation has a granite chamfered round arch doorway and there are several granite stone mullion windows, and there are remains of an old chimney stack which may formerly have been a doorway. Internally the beautifully presented accommodation includes timber lintels, with some excellent period detailing, granite jambs to a former fireplace, and scissor-braced trusses.
The beamed sitting room with stone chimney breast and wood burner is complemented by a comprehensively fitted kitchen/dining room with a Heritage Range Cooker. The three bedrooms are all presented to a high standard and there is a contemporary bathroom. An important facility is the garage block which has a kitchenette and cloakroom, with a spiral staircase leading to the studio/office above.
The modern stable block is well equipped, and could be used for other purposes if desired. The land is all fenced and directly viewed from the house, accessed only through the property.
