About this property

  • Court Farm presents a wonderful and unique opportunity to create an idyllic lifestyle business set within about 20 glorious acres. Since 2014, there have been 5 planning applications approved for Court Farm which have been submitted by the current owners. The works completed to date have been a labour of love and finished with exquisite attention to detail. The history of the planning process relating to Court Farm can be viewed at www.southhams.gov but in short, the latest permission (0659/17/FUL) grants a right to convert 3 stone barns to 3 holiday lets and a storage barn. There are other aspects of Court Farm that are very much ‘works in progress' and this includes an extension to the farmhouse to create a third reception room with a large fourth bedroom above. The house, despite the works going on, is immaculately presented and the accommodation comprises a farmhouse kitchen / breakfast room with electric Aga, a flagstone floor living room with inglenook fire housing a wood burning stove, 3 first floor bedrooms with a bathroom and a shower room. In addition is a large basement offering dry storage.

    The barns once converted will provide three cottages in total, two of them providing 2 en suite bedrooms and the third smaller cottage offering one bedroom accommodation. There is a range of further outbuildings. The immediate grounds to the house are pretty and well cared for gardens which are largely laid to lawn with flower beds and borders. The grounds wrap around the house and extend beyond to 19.25 acres. The fields offer wonderful grazing for horses or livestock and are bordered with two streams and woodland.

This is such a rarity... a farmhouse, outbuildings and 20 acres in the middle of a town! Court Farm has to be one of the loveliest development opportunities I have seen in a long time.
