Property Description: SITUATION
Hareston Farm Barns were built for large-scale farm production by the Plymouth Cooperative Society in 1908 to provide and promote good food at fairer prices. The Society was experiencing rapid growth in the late 19th Century and in 1903 Plymouth Cooperative Society purchased Hareston Farm (149 acres) to help with ever-increasing demands. Characteristic local stone was used in the construction, with brick quoins and occasional granite dressings. The farm is no longer in use and the barns were converted from 2019 into 14 luxury residential homes, with the site completed earlier this year.
Set within the rolling hills of the South Hams, the two villages of Brixton and Yealmpton are within a five minute drive and offer a range of services including small shops, farm shop, Health centre, pubs, garden centre, post offices, churches and primary schools. The A38 South Devon Expressway is only a few minutes away, providing easy access to Plymouth and beyond. The beautiful beaches of the South Hams, such as Wembury and Mothecombe, and Dartmoor National Park are both within a 20 minute drive. Plymouth Sound offers a vast array of watersports such as kayaking, SUP, diving and deepwater yacht marinas. The city of Plymouth offers a wide range of shops, restaurants, theatres, cinemas, mainline train station, continental ferry port and major hospital. The Tamar bridge, the gateway to Cornwall, is just 15 minutes away. DESCRIPTION
Converted in 2019, this detached barn conversion occupies a wonderful position offering countryside views and a beautiful private garden overlooking fields. The property offers level accommodation on one floor, with two double bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite) and an open plan living area. Finished to a high standard, the property benefits from underfloor heating throughout, high quality kitchen and bathrooms, oak flooring, doors and architraves. In addition there is a spacious single garage with private parking place in front, plus additional visitors' parking and communal grounds. The property also benefits from the remainder of the original six year warranty. ACCOMMODATION
