Full Details

Loworthy Barn is tucked away in a private and picturesque valley just outside the popular village of Slapton and a couple of miles inland from the 3 mile long beach, Slapton Sands.

Slapton is a beautiful and very popular village with a thriving local community, two excellent public houses, community village store, village hall, church and chapel.

The National Nature Reserve at Slapton Ley, a Site of Special Scientific Interest is located on the edge of the village and is the largest freshwater lake in the south west of England. The South West Coast Path is easily accessible and takes in some of the most spectacular scenery the region has to offer.

Nestled in the peaceful South Hams countryside, Loworthy Barn has been comprehensively renovated to an extremely high standard with meticulous attention to detail.

The property is approached through a beautifully landscaped courtyard with substantial specimen trees.

On the entrance level is a handmade kitchen with range cooker, slate floor and space to dine; a stable door leads to the outside entertaining areas. Off the kitchen is a utility room with butler sink and a walk-in larder. A double bedroom with French doors opens onto the front courtyard and has a stylish Terrazzo tiled shower room adjacent.

An open tread oak staircase leads to the first floor which has a seating area vaulted to the gallery above with an abundance of natural light, sitting room with open fire and doors to a paved terrace, principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe.

There are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom off the impressive galleried landing on the top floor. The vaulted roof with exposed scissor beams, roof trusses and purlins is quite magnificent.

The outside entertaining areas are a real feature of Loworthy Barn, south facing and overlooking the garden is a gravelled area enclosed by a low stone wall as well as a Loggia with outdoor stove. The grounds are an absolute delight with established trees, shrubs and two ponds; a path meanders along the stream through a wooded area to an Asian garden. Adjacent to the garden is a paddock which has separate vehicular access from the lane. There is plenty of space for parking.

Loworthy Barn offers stylish living in a tranquil rural setting and viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate all this wonderful home offers, both inside and out.
