About this property

  • Lower Grimpstonleigh, an ancient site mentioned in the Domesday Book, is now a stunning haven comprising a stone built farmhouse with a self-contained annex, two further self-contained stone barns and a wonderful range of outbuildings including a beautiful indoor swimming pool. The properties are presented in exceptional order with exquisite attention to detail throughout and offering spacious accommodation suitable for multi-generational living or as a successful holiday letting business. The kitchen / breakfast / sitting room in the main house is a fabulous reception room, with slate floor, a wonderful range of newly fitted units, an oil fired Aga with electric Aga companion, wood burning stove (not yet been used) and also double doors opening to the gardens. The first floor offers a principal bedroom with gorgeous free standing bath on raised plinth and en suite shower room, two further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a dressing room for the main bedroom and there is also an ensuite in bedroom 3. Connecting doors on both ground and first floor levels provide integral access to Apple Cottage, which is let to holiday guests in the summer months but is essentially the east wing of the main house. Apple Cottage provides a further 30' reception room with a wood burning stove set in inglenook fireplace and an oak built kitchen with electric Aga cooker, two first floor double bedrooms with an ensuite bathroom and separate shower room. Cider Barn and Top Barn are two further stone built barns providing beautiful holiday accommodation with remarkable living areas, well equipped kitchens and two double en suite bedrooms each. The holiday barns are to be sold as a ‘turnkey' business with fixtures and fittings to be included in the sale. The grounds extend to about 6 acres and are surrounded by glorious rolling South Hams countryside. The gardens are largely laid to lawn with a babbling brook running through, al fresco dining terraces, two Crown Pavilion heated Gazebo summer houses and a mature cider apple orchard.

    An indoor swimming pool is a superb addition to any holiday retreat and the one at Lower Grimpstonleigh does not disappoint. Set within an oak framed building with vaulted ceiling, there are wall to wall glass tri fold doors that open onto the full width decked terrace with lovely views, a cloakroom, shower and changing room. Further outbuildings include garaging, wine cellar / store and 2 stone built workshops.
