About this property

  • Yawl Barn is a wonderful example of a barn conversion with a natural stone and blue wood cladding exterior and slate roof that is striking while also remaining in keeping amid the tranquillity of its South Hams rural waterside position. In an enviable position beside Goodshelter, a tidal ford that leads to Waterhead Creek and the Salcombe/Kingsbridge Estuary. This is an idyllic property for boating and countryside lovers alike.

    The reverse level interior of Yawl Barn has been lovingly designed to create an open plan living space accessed by a stunning wide spiral staircase naturally lit with multiple French windows and skylights. A mix of stone and white walls, exposed beams, hardwood, slate floors and limestone tiling have been blended together amid the comforts of underfloor heating, modern lighting and in-built ceiling speakers to create a truly breath-taking home.

    The current owners have recently refurbished the property to a very high standard throughout making this a truly lovely family home or alternatively a fabulous holiday home.

    Outside the lawn area to the front of the property enjoys views of the Waterhead Creek bisected by the driveway. Double gates offer alternative private access from the road. Woodshed with power and lighting. The wrap around secluded sun terrace at the rear and the newly designed front terrace are wonderful places to dine and relax in the sun with family and friends. Yawl Barn is where the first Salcombe Yawls were originally made. Mooring may be available for a small fee from a local provider.

What a cracking spot this is. You can be out the door with your kayak and on the water in the blink of an eye!
