A rare opportunity to acquire a stunning, architecturally designed modern home providing nearly 400sqm of living, surrounded in 9 acres complimented by a 700sqm agricultural storage.
What we love:
Little Larcombe Farm is set near the popular South Hams village of Diptford, located 7 miles from Totnes with a wide range of independent shops and a short 10 minute drive to Marley Head roundabout providing A38 access. Whilst set in it’s own rural 9-acre estate within a wider Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the property boasts fantastic convenience, with Diptford Village centre just a mile along the road.
Diptford boasts a genuine small village primary school. There are two secondary schools (both rated Good) by Ofsted in the area and easy access to private schools in Plymouth, Newton Abbot, Exeter and Tiverton. Totnes provides direct train routes through to London Paddington via Exeter and also west to Plymouth and on into Cornwall.
This property provides an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a modern 2012 built home with land; rare, as many homes for sale within the South Hams offered with land tend to date pre 1900s, can be much smaller original farmhouses or are barn conversions. Little Larcombe Farm is what Devon living is all about, providing the wonderful combination of the beautiful rolling hills set in the heart of nature with modern, classy and convenient family living.
The home itself has been wonderfully designed, showcasing open plan living throughout the ground floor with a centre focul mezzanine floor completed with a 10mm thick, reinforced glass balustrade. Large centre roof windows shower the home in natural light. The generous use of glass throughout creates a super modern, elegant feel. The ground floor comprises of an open kitchen diner with breakfast bar, two living areas that are log burner ‘ready’ (one is already working/used), a separate shower room as well as two bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room. There is potential for the creation of a one-bedroom Annexe with living area and is plumbed ready for a second kitchen. The Annexe would have it’s own private external access and would be divided off the main living area. The power to this area runs off a separate RCD and heating supply.
The first floor is open, light and airy with east and west facing balconies which open out with bi-fold doors and showcase the most spectacular countryside views. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 en-suites including a ‘Jack n Jill’ bathroom. All bathrooms / shower rooms benefit from underfloor heating. A vast landing space creates further living and recreational areas which during the summer, would be ideal for entertaining guests. Sit, relax and enjoy a drink whilst watching the sun go down from the balcony, taking in the rolling hills.
Externally, Little Larcombe farm has much to boast. A 700sqm (approx) agricultural storage building with further 250sqm (approx) workshop / office space could be ideal for an indoor horse-riding arena or running a home-based business, of course, subject to the relevant approvals. A spring lake sitting in front of the house provides a wonderful opportunity to create a natural swimming pool which at it’s deepest drops to approximately 6ft. Further, within the 9 acres, there is a beautiful orchard which grows a wide variety of tasty fruits including apples, plums and pears. A sweeping driveway provides a fitting entrance into this must-see property.
At Little Larcombe Farm, an array of wildlife can be seen from dawn till dusk, from Hares and Tawny Owls to Deers and their young. Truly, a spectacular home in a spectacular location.
