SET WITHIN the beautiful complex of Charleton Court Barns is a very special property, Middle Barn. It offers well laid out accommodation over 2 floors, sitting just below the Parish Church in a peaceful and tranquil location.

There is a well-appointed kitchen with plenty of space for a kitchen table. Internal access is through the kitchen into the integral garage, having a utility arrangement as well as plenty of space for a car and storage.

The property has a lovingly tended sunny south facing front garden, offering a good degree of privacy, perfect for al fresco dining at any time of the day. Middle Barn has driveway parking and an additional allocated parking space, with separate visitor parking.

Thomas Fallaize, Sales Negotiator in Kingsbridge said: “Middle Barn is a beautifully presented barn conversion, light and spacious, which could be ideal as a family home or alternatively as a second home.” Middle Barn is offered for sale at £385,000.

IF YOUR WISH LIST includes words like detached, private, sunny, views and garage then this home has something to offer. Mind you, if level is on that list we may have a problem. Because this home is what we estate agents refer to as “elevated”. It is up steps. But then so is half of Dartmouth too. And that is what gives rise to its rather fabulous views. The house is on Swannaton Road in Warfleet with a southerly sunny aspect and views across the valley there to the fields and woodlands around.

Inside you find the breakfast kitchen and dining room on the lower floor. Upstairs brings you to the sitting room and master bedroom that share those views. To the rear are 2 more double bedrooms and the bathroom. There are terraced gardens down to the front and up at the rear, and, up the lane a little, a separate garage. So, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of town but still want access to town and water then this could well suit. If the asking price of £499,000 tempts you then please do get in touch.

If this sounds like the home you have been looking for then please get in touch with Richard Blake on 01803 832288, pop into the office on Market Street or look for more information on-line at Or you could come and see us in our new office in Brixham.

An individual detached property of exceptional character just yards from the estuary.

KINGFISHERS IS NESTLES ON TACKET WOOD CREEK. A small creek off the Salcombe estuary and a veritable magnet for all manner of wildlife and birds including egrets and kingfishers. It is just a few minutes walking distance of Kingsbridge town, the sports centre and the highly-rated (Ofsted) Community College. We understand that Kingfishers was originally a wooden farm store until it was converted to a dwelling in the 1960’s. It has been variously extended and remodelled since then and now provides a stunning waterside home of exceptional character. In addition to its location, further features of the property include the superb open-plan triple aspect living room and the similarly open-plan dual aspect first floor accommodation which is currently used as a living room / bedroom but has been designed in such a way as to facilitate other uses if preferred. Within the property the living accommodation is a superb open-plan room and a particular feature of the property. This delightful triple aspect room has double opening doors to the rear garden and a, 11’ picture window to the front which gives you the feeling that you could touch the water! There is a woodburner is set on a marble hearth with a full-height surround in local stone and the flooring throughout is in engineered Oak.

The kitchen is fully fitted with an excellent range of white acrylic fronted units and has a one and half bowl sink unit and ample adjoining tiled-topped work-surfaces with storage cupboards and inbuilt appliances.

There are two ground floor bedrooms which are serviced by the fully-tiled shower room which has a double-sized shower cubicle with an Aqualisa unit, vanitory hand wash basin, WC and heated towel rail/radiator.

A multi-paned door leads to a generous laundry/utility room which has a sink unit and plumbing for a washing machine and a further door from here leads to the pine-panelled study/occasional bedroom.

The accommodation on the first floor is also a noteworthy feature of the property: it is currently an open-plan living room/bedroom with a vaulted and pine-panelled ceiling and full-height glazed windows to either end with Juliet balconies and affording wonderful views over the estuary to the front and the garden at the rear. Also on the first floor is a fully-tiled bathroom with a bath, vanitory hand wash basin and WC and a walk-in shower with dividing glass-brick wall and an Aqualisa unit. A good sized dressing room provides obvious scope to convert into a kitchen, should one wish.

To one side of the property is a paved parking area with room for two cars whilst on the other side is a driveway (with room for one car) that leads to the garage.

Immediately to the rear of the house is a full-length paved terrace which is south-west facing and receives the sun for much of the day. This opens out on to the rear garden which is on two levels, beautifully landscaped and laid mainly to lawn but with well-stocked flower beds and borders. A former double lime kiln makes an interesting backdrop to the garden! On one side is a covered veranda and a spa room/conservatory. Some steps lead up to a further garden on a higher level which is currently used as a vegetable garden.

Kingfishers has a guide price of £865,000. The team at Stags would be delighted to discuss the property with you further or arrange an appointment to view. Contact the Stags, Kingsbridge team on 01548 853131 or call into the office at 1 The Promenade.
