Development land and planning specialists Greenslade Taylor Hunt are marketing an attractive opportunity at Blackawton, near Totnes.

The site at Watsons Court, with exceptional views of the rolling South Hams countryside, has Class Q prior approval to convert three agricultural buildings to attractive barn conversions.

South Hams District Council granted the approval in August 2021. Once converted the barns will offer generous open plan living in an edge of village location.

The village is well placed for access to a range of attractions and amenities including Blackpool Sands, which is around six miles away, while popular Salcombe is eight miles away and cultural Totnes, which is renowned for its range of independent traders, is five and a half miles away.

Barn A will comprise a two double bed home with open plan kitchen/dining/living room and family bathroom extending to 678 ft (63 sq m).

Barn B will become a one-bed property with open plan kitchen/living room, utility and bathroom extending to 420 sq ft (39 sq m).

Barn C will be an ideal family home with five double bedrooms – all with ensuites – a large open plan kitchen/dining room, utility, living room and games room. It will extend to 3,000 sq ft (279 sq m).
