South facing Georgian style country house with 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, detached double garage, workshop and three further barns all with one bedroom set in 20 acres on the outskirts on Blackawton.
Higher Hutcherleigh is in a class of its own, set in the majestic rolling countryside of the South Hams between the three thriving towns of Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Totnes.
This South facing, newly built Georgian style country house is located in the rural hamlet of Hutcherleigh, on the fringes of the village of Blackawton. Beautifully presented throughout with well portioned rooms, this elegant house exudes quality and offers fabulous countryside living, with superb facilities for horses or other livestock.
It is the main farmhouse that really takes centre stage, with impressive symmetry and fine detailing. The large Georgian-style windows are custom-built, wooden and double glazed in keeping with the area’s architectural vernacular and picking up elements of the former buildings design, but using the latest house building technology. It is also very heat efficient, with an air source heat pump and underfloor heating radiating warmth under the beautiful creamy travertine floor that runs throughout the ground level.
The welcoming entrance hall has a fine staircase leading to the first and second floors and opens to a delightful dining hall with French doors onto the verandah on the east side of the house.
The heart of this stylish home is the superb kitchen, both contemporary and comfortable in feel with a central island, top spec units with integrated appliances and opening through to the relaxing garden room and study. The dual aspect drawing room has a wood burner and French doors, again opening onto the verandah and flooding the room with light.
The staircase rises to the centre of the spacious first floor landing, where the entire West-facing wing is dedicated to the master bedroom suite, complete with dressing room and en-suite bathroom where the bath is especially positioned so you can take in the views. There are 2 further spacious bedrooms on this level with luxurious en-suites. Bedrooms 4 and 5 are on the second floor, both with their own smart bathrooms. Higher Hutcherleigh would lend itself very well to B&B.
Also providing a rental income if required are The Coach House, Dukes Barn and The Grain Barn. Beautifully presented, one bedroom barns with ample storage facilities and underfloor heating. They are set away from the main house and positioned so each has privacy and Airbnb potential.
Close to the house the garden has been attractively landscaped and offers various areas from which to enjoy the tranquil and private setting of Higher Hatherley. The grounds of approximately 20 acres have gently sloping paddocks, a large American barn stables, secure workshop, detached double garage with a well-equipped laundry room and a further open barn providing ample parking.
Higher Hutcherleigh offers an elegant life style for a family, those requiring income or anyone just wanting to live in this peaceful, scenic part of the West Country.
