Property Description: DESCRIPTION
Set in over an acre of grounds on the edge of the popular village South Hams of Yealmpton these two separate homes offer the opportunity for multi-generational living or generating an income.
The location offers a high degree of privacy and seclusion and features a number of outbuildings including a two storey barn and double garage.

The barn boasts photovoltaic solar panels with feed-in-tariff, ground source heat pump providing underfloor heating and a back-up generator.
The grounds include an orchard, extensive vegetable garden with fruit cages, greenhouses and shed, meadow with fruit trees, walled Mediterranean themed garden with outdoor swimming pool (heated via ground source heat pump if required) with chainging room/shower/WC, cottage style garden with sandstone terrace and summerhouse.

A two storey barn conversion offers extra storage space (note there is a resident bat colony in one room during the breeding season).
The old farmhouse is separate to the barn conversion, a short walk over the driveway. Dating in parts from the 17th century this grade II listed attached property boasts a wealth of character features such as flag stone floors, period fireplaces, sash windows and shutters, window seats and more.
