About this property
A superb 4 double bedroom barn conversion, finished to a high standard with many original features and character, spacious living accommodation and located in a quiet rural setting, a short drive away from the coast.
This beautifully converted former cider barn is located in a peaceful, rural setting within the small hamlet of Ashford close to the village of Aveton Gifford, located deep in the South Hams, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the western bank of the River Avon. In Aveton Gifford there is a shop, public house with a restaurant, church, nursery/primary school. 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 Estuary, known for its abundance of marine wild fowl, and which is navigable downstream to Bantham and out to sea when the tide permits. The nearest sandy beaches are Bigbury on Sea, Bantham and Burgh Island, surrounded by outstanding scenery and cliff tops of the South Hams coastline. Also nearby are the sailing centres based at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, as well as 18-hole golf courses at Bigbury and Thurlestone.
The property offers an immense amount of character and rustic charm and incorporates an array of original features and character including some of the original cider press machinery which is on display in the sitting room. The accommodation is extremely light and spacious offering plenty of space for entertaining and family living. A large, glazed entrance door opens into an impressive reception hallway with doors to the principal rooms and an elegant oak staircase rising to the first floor with a gallery landing. From the rear of the hallway there is a well-equipped utility room and downstairs cloakroom. The open plan kitchen, sitting room, and dining area is a truly magnificent space and certainly has a wow factor! The kitchen has been fitted with a range of bespoke hand-crafted units incorporating solid oak work surfaces, a double Belfast style sink and a Range Master cooker together with space for a fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The sitting and dining areas are quite spectacular and retain all the character of the original round house with a glorious, vaulted ceiling, A frames and an Oak, open banister staircase rising to a ''Minstrel Gallery'.
Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a beautiful master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a good size home office with French doors leading out to a courtyard area. This room could also be used as a fourth bedroom if required. On the first floor the accommodation is again generous in proportion with a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The property is approached via a shared gravel driveway where there is plenty of parking including two parking spaces in a shared four-bay open fronted oak linhay where there is also a lockable timber garden shed. There is further parking for two cars in front of the barn. To the side of the linhay is a charming, secluded garden with a seating area bordering a brook.
The main garden to the front of the barn is mainly laid to lawn with mature hedge and shrub borders and a patio area perfect for alfresco dining. There is a further patio seating area to the rear of the property which can be accessed from both the home office and living area.
Mains electricity, water & drainage. Oil-fired central heating system (with radiators upstairs and under floor heating downstairs).
