Bulland is a rural hamlet of just three properties nestled in a quiet valley surrounded by picturesque rolling South Hams countryside, a little over one mile south of Ashburton. There is excellent walking and riding country on the doorstep within the byways and high-hedged Devon lanes, and the area abounds in wildlife.

Whilst enjoying an idyllic rural setting Bulland is extremely easy to access and is little more than five minutes drive to the A38 which brings both Plymouth and Exeter within a comfortable thirty minute drive. Ashburton has a great range of everyday shops and amenities, including primary and secondary schools, whilst the the larger towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot can be reached within 20 minutes by car and each have mainline stations with direct connection to London Paddington.

Bulland Court was bought in 1997 by our client from the Church Commissioners as an agricultural stone barn and was converted over the years that followed to provide a unique, highly insulated (EPC rating C) four bedroomed home with passive solar design in mind.

It features oak hardwood framed double glazed windows, bespoke internal doors and joinery, polished concrete flooring to the ground floor and solid oak flooring to the first floor. There are two staircases and the property easily divides into two semi-independent areas.

Outside, the gardens and land provide a wonderful setting and include a raised sun-deck with stunning country views, orchard and vegetable garden, three paddocks and a number of camping pitches with campers WC. There is a former milking parlour/dairy and cattle shed attached to the property which lends itself to possible conversion to ancillary or holiday accommodation, subject to any required consents.

Additionally, there is a large detached multi-purpose steel-framed former farm building with workshop, hay store and stables.
