Lovely double thatched barn conversion with a recently refurbished 2 bedroom annexe amid landscaped gardens located in a peaceful hamlet with easy access to South Sands in Salcombe and the amenities of Malborough. EPC Rating F.
Combe Thatch is the stunning result of a double conversation of two 100 year old stone barns. Converted in 1994, this 4 bedroom property is largely thatched with a slate tiled roof on a more recent extension. The first floor is divided into two wings with two bedrooms in each.
Attractive timber framed windows permit plenty of natural light to permeate throughout Combe Thatch's interior which includes a generous sitting room, a dining hall and modern open plan living space - all given extra character with a whole host of original exposed beams and rafters.
Nestled in the heart of the South Devon countryside, the property also enjoys soothing rural views. Its near acre of attractive landscaped gardens, complete with an enclosed paved courtyard and walled pond, also includes a recently refurbished two bedroom annexe, a workshop, car port, double ended garage and plenty of off road parking space accessed by a driveway that connects two separate gated entrances.
The courtyard area is paved with a circular brick walled pond at its centre. The property itself, annexe and additional trellising make it a very secluded area for enjoying the sun and the rural surroundings. A sun terrace can be found to the side of the property.
