This property is in a delightful countryside setting, between Yealmpton & Newton Ferrers. The attached barn comprises 2 receptions, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, bathroom & shower room. Gas central heating. Attractive formal gardens, stabling & approx. 3 acres of land, incorporating a sand school (grassed) orchard & paddock/field.
Higher Wrescombe is situated within close proximity of the villages of Yealmpton and Newton Ferrers and sits within an exclusive courtyard of 4 properties, including the original farmhouse and a very substantial detached barn. Higher Wrescombe itself is one of a pair of attached barns enjoying a fabulous setting with open countryside views which stretch for miles. The property opens onto a beautifully-maintained formal garden which is completely enclosed. Adjoining the boundary of the formal garden is an additional substantial area of land which can (if required) be self-contained from the house and formal gardens. This area of land comprises a stable block, currently not used as horse stabling but easily converted back, which fronts onto a yard and a sand school currently laid to grass but fully-enclosed and easily re-instated. Surrounding the curtilage of the sand school there is an orchard and an enclosed paddock/field, therefore making this an ideal equestrian property.

The property is approached along a gravelled drive. As you enter Wrescombe Court the gravel driveway approaching Higher Wrescombe flows around to the left, opening onto a parking area. From here there are double timber gates opening to the enclosed private garden. The gardens are laid to lawn with mature borders, shrubs and trees, a fabulous water feature and borders well-stocked with an array of exotic plants. A tiered gravelled path runs along the side of a log store around to the paved patio at the side of the property and to a further sizeable paved terrace which runs off from the rear of the house to the lawned garden. NOTE: in the past there has been planning consent for a double garage which has now lapsed. The plans are available for viewing upon request.
Although this area is attached to the boundary of the formal gardens of the property, it can also be easily self-contained, allowing the possibility of renting out the stabling yard, sand school and paddock for livery. This area is fully-enclosed by post-and-rail fencing with a pedestrian gate from the parking area to the stable yard and a further 5-bar gate giving vehicular access from a neighbouring field, over which there is a perpetual right of way for this access. The stable yard has the benefit of power, light and cold water supply with the stable block itself being of timber construction set on a concrete base. The stable block has had the corrugated roof renewed and has uPVC gutters and downpipes. The stable is currently used as a kennel area for gun dogs although it is easily converted back to loose block stabling. To the side of the stable block there is a separate door which gives access to the tack room which is currently opened up to the back of one of the loose boxes, forming a large storage room.
This is fully-enclosed by a post-and-rail fence and has been left to grass. The sand base still exists and could therefore be re-instated to its former use.
PADDOCK AND ORCHARD
The orchard is planted with a large variety of trees of varying size and age, amongst which are apple, pear, plum and damson. The paddock itself is enclosed by post-and-wire fencing and bounded to one side by mature trees and hedging, providing shade. The property in total covers an area of approximately 3 acres.
