About this property

An absolutely stunning Grade II Listed detached country home filled with charm and character, situated on the outskirts of the popular South Hams village of Blackawton in an idyllic setting enjoying unrivalled views of the surrounding countryside.

An absolutely stunning versatile Grade II Listed detached country home which in parts dates back to the 18th Century, nestled in an idyllic rural setting, commanding the most wonderful views across the rolling Devon countryside.

Langstone House was sympathetically and beautifully renovated by a local developer approximately 20 years ago. The current home owners have continued to meticulously maintain and love the property and have created a rural retreat full of charm and character.

Sitting in a picturesque Devon valley, the property is unique consisting of an old stone cottage and two barns, all fabulously and seamlessly linked to make one stunning home. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1 shower room and 3 reception rooms, the most delightful gardens with woodland walk and a paddock in all totalling approximately 2 acres, a summer house and a garage.

The property oozes quality in its construction, and it is presented beautifully and to a very high standard throughout.

The accommodation wraps wonderfully around a central flagstoned courtyard which allows sun to shine through the house. On the ground floor is a wonderful farmhouse style kitchen with a double height ceiling with fixed glazed panels and glazed double doors out to the courtyard allowing in plenty of natural light. There are wall and base units and an excellent large island all with composite worktops and an electric AGA. Steps lead down to the sitting room with a feature panelled wall and glazed doors out to the courtyard. The dining hall is another double height room with part fixed glazed roof panels and bi-fold glazed doors out to a decked balcony. Clever use has been made of the ''hallway' linking the dining hall to the older cottage which is now a hobby room and leads through to the second sitting room, with a fabulous feature inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. Stairs lead from the second sitting room up to the third bedroom and a family bathroom with feature freestanding bath. Stairs lead from the dining hall down to a most useful utility room, a shower room and bedroom 4 which is currently used as a home office / study. On the first floor is bedroom 2 which has an en suite shower room and the main bedroom with an en suite bathroom and glazed double doors which lead out to a lovely, paved sun terrace.

A particularly special feature of Langstone House are the gardens and grounds which include a paddock, in all totalling approximately 2 acres. The more formal gardens are absolutely glorious, having been lovingly and expertly created by the current owners. The planting is now well established and mature, with numerous seating areas from where to enjoy the many wonderful vistas. There is a flagstoned courtyard, a paved sun terrace off the main bedroom and a woodland walk. The summer house may offer the potential to create further additional usage being insulated and having power. There is a double garage which houses the bore hole filtration system and there is additional roof storage. A gravelled driveway provides ample parking for several vehicles.
