Stantor Linhay is a large stone barn with planning permission granted to be converted into a spacious four bedroom dwelling. The property would be set in its own grounds of 5.6 acres, and have its own long driveway leading up to the property. The property lends itself to be an exceptional small holding and a wonderful opportunity for someone to create their own grand design.

This fabulous barn for conversion is situated on the rural outskirts of Preston, a sought after area of Paignton located between Torquay and Brixham. The property backs onto Occombe Valley Nature Reserve where peaceful woodland walks can be enjoyed. The highly desired village of Cockington is also a short walk away. The medieval village of Cockington is surrounded by nearly 500 acres of parkland, lakes and woodland walks.
Torquay, Paignton and the English Riviera are within easy reach, as are the beaches of the wider Tor Bay area. The medieval town of Totnes is some 5 miles away, and Dartmouth is also easily accessible via the car ferry at Kingswear. There are several well regarded primary and secondary schools in the area including the Torquay boys and girls grammar schools. Commuting to Exeter and the M5 is fast thanks to the newly opened South Devon Link Road and there are mainline train stations at Totnes or Newton Abbot with a direct service to London Paddington.

The land with the property totals approximately five acres. The proposed/preferred driveway access to be created off Stantor Lane is a long sweeping drive leading up to the property with the remainder of the grounds to the front and side of the property. The land is gently sloping and ideal for keeping livestock, or could be used for equestrian purposes (subject to consent).
