Higher Court lies between the estuary town of Kingsbridge and the village of Loddiswell. It stands in a rural location in a lovely part of the South Hams. The barn was formally part of a traditional farmyard with a listed farmhouse set on the outskirts of this group of stone and slated Barns. Once converted this property will have the most attractive of settings, with the convenience of being within easy driving of the coastlines of the South hams. Also within easy reach of all the main centres of the region. Kingsbridge is a nearby town with a comprehensive shopping centre, a wide range of leisure activities and pursuits with access to the Salcombe Estuary.
Higher Court Barn at Higher Hatch Farm originally formed part of this Grade II listed farmstead. This Grade II listed detached barn with a stone pillared façade, lending itself through the clever design allowing plenty of natural light into the spacious 3 bedroom home with open plan living. An attached utility and office area is incorporated into the design.
Construction of Barn is of traditional in part open fronted stone and cob building with planning consent to convert to a three bedroom character home maintaining many of the original features. Planning reference number: 3996/22/LBC.
