A substantial stone barn conversion with a modern annexe, overlooking Kingsbridge Estuary

Church Barn is a beautiful stone-built thatched barn conversion in an idyllic South Hams location. Formerly a tithe barn, the property combines period character with contemporary styling, green technology and high-quality bespoke fittings. The barn, which was redeveloped in 2008 to an exceptional standard, provides three bedrooms, a self-contained onebedroom annexe and stunning views across the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary.

The main reception room is the impressive 28ft family room, located on the first floor. It has wooden flooring, a vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams, a modern bio-ethanol stove and French doors opening onto a south-facing semi-circular terrace with views towards the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary. The first floor also has an extremely spacious study for home working, while on the ground floor there is an open-plan kitchen, breakfast room and dining room, with the kitchen featuring bespoke Tom Howley units and fittings. The dining room has French doors opening onto a patio area, with the ground floor also featuring a beautiful glass atrium connecting two original separate buildings and providing plenty of natural light.

There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor including the luxury principal bedroom with its dressing room and en suite shower room. The ground floor also has a family bathroom and a shower room. There is a further double bedroom overlooking the reception hall, which is ideal for use as a guest wing with its shower room below.

The oak built annexe is known as The Stables. Constructed in 2021 to a beautiful standard, the accommodation offers a spacious openplan sitting room/kitchen/dining room, a large double bedroom and a stylishly appointed shower room, as well as its own patio and dedicated parking facilities. Both Church Barn and The Stables have several modern technological innovations, including a ground source heat pump for the main house and an air source heat pump for The Stables.

The property is located on the edge of the village of West Charleton, just under two miles from Kingsbridge and moments from the Kingsbridge Estuary and the rolling countryside of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village provides a local pub, a parish church and a primary school, while Kingsbridge offers easy access to further amenities. There are excellent local schools in Kingsbridge, including the outstanding-rated Kingsbridge Community College, and more schools in the surrounding villages, while several private schools in the southwest also run daily buses from Kingsbridge and Newton Abbot for day kids and flexi boarding. Kingsbridge is a thriving market town with a population of approximately 6,000 people. The town has two major supermarkets, several excellent restaurants and gastro pubs, along with outstanding local independent butchers, fish shops and delis. The South Hams Hospital, along with doctors and dentist surgeries, are also located in Kingsbridge. The area is renowned for its water sports and sailing, coastal and country walks on Dartmoor, and a choice of golf clubs nearby at Thurlestone, Bigbury and Dartmouth Golf and Country Club.


From Kingsbridge, take the A379 towards Dartmouth and after a mile and three quarters, turn left onto Church Lane. After a quarter of a mile, turn right into the entrance for West Charleton Grange and access to the property will be on the right-hand side.
