Rough Torr Barn is situated in a secluded position within an area of outstanding natural beauty, yet still within 1.2 miles of the South Hams village of Yealmpton.
The building was constructed in the early part of the 19th century when the use of the lime on the land was becoming common practice, and it was perhaps used for the stabling of the horses associated with the carrying of the limestone to the nearby creek of the Yealm Estuary.
This beautiful home has been furbished to a high standard with large double glazed skylight window allowing light to flow through the spacious entrance area, underfloor heating throughout the property and a beautiful country style bespoke kitchen.
The property also boasts a self-contained annexe which would make a perfect space for a relative or alternatively as fourth & fifth bedrooms for guests or older children.
The property sits within approximately two thirds of an acre of mature gardens with beautiful countryside views. The private gated driveway leads to plentiful parking as well as two garages, a workshop & a historic lime kiln.
