Property Summary

A rare opportunity to purchase a detached barn in the heart of the South Hams with equestrian facilities and easy access to wonderful hacking.

Full Details

The Linhay is situated in an idyllic and rural part of the South Hams, only 3 miles from the bustling and thriving market town of Kingsbridge and within a short drive of many beautiful sandy beaches.

The nearest village is East Allington which has a range of facilities including a pub, church, primary school and village shop/post office.

Imaginatively converted in the mid-1990’s on the site of an old linhay barn, the 4 bedroom accommodation is full of character with oak ceiling beams and part exposed original stone pillars. A galleried landing and vaulted ceilings in some of the rooms enhance the feeling of space.

Tucked away at the end of a no through road and enjoying an open southerly aspect, the barn is approached via a timber five bar gate which leads to a gravelled driveway.

At the front of the property is a south facing paved terrace with water feature. Beautifully planted gardens with well-stocked borders surround The Linhay and there is also an open fronted oak framed double car port, opposite which is hard-standing for two additional vehicles.

The equestrian facilities which come with the property are in a sunny and sheltered corner with extensive views of the beautiful South Hams countryside.

A recently built L-shaped steel framed building is well insulated and comprises a stable block with three boxes, feed store and tack room. The feed store could easily be converted into a further stable box if required. Adjacent to the stable yard is a sand school measuring approximately 40m x 20m. In addition to the stable block is a large workshop / barn.

The land extends to approximately 5 acres and is divided in to 3 beautifully maintained paddocks with post and rail fencing and water troughs.

The Linhay adjoins a bridleway which affords easy access to nearby Woodleigh Woods, some 600 acres of Woodland Trust-owned land, and the Avon valley which offers excellent hacking without going anywhere near roads.

This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an equestrian property with a quality house in an extremely convenient location, nestled in the beautiful South Hams countryside, close to the sea but not remote.
