* SALE AGREED - SIMILAR PROPERTIES REQUIRED * A substantial, brand new build with 5,340 square foot of living space. Offering flexible living with 6 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, 5 bathrooms (4 en suite). Integral single garage, detached double garage & sat within grounds of circa 1 acre. State of the art ground source heating. Luxurious finish & panoramic views.

SELLERS INSIGHT When we first saw the site we were struck by the outstanding views that it enjoyed. The property offered a large square footage and we subsequently received planning consent for additional accommodation on the first floor. We specialise in highly efficient, eco friendly, quality new builds and conversions. We have used state of the art ground source heating with a Kensa Evo Heat Pump, fitted triple glazed windows and utilised Nadura ICF block insulation.

We feel we have created a wonderful, large family home with a luxury finish inside. Attention to detail has been paramount with the very finest fixtures and fittings throughout yet sympathetic to the style of the property. The extensive accommodation offers the new buyer a flexibility of living with multiple options. Indeed, there are bedrooms on both levels and great potential to adapt to suit personal requirements. Outside, the views are stunning and we have tried to make the most of these with a beautiful sun terrace outside the living room which looks over rolling hills in the direction of Broadhempston. There is a useful integral garage with an electric car charging point and a detached double garage.

We hope that the new buyer enjoys this fabulous home as much as we have enjoyed designing and building it. This really is a Grand Designs style project we have undertaken and it has created a unique home that we feel blends wonderfully with the beautiful South Hams countryside. 

INTRODUCTION A substantial detached new build set in an idyllic semi rural location with breath taking views. The Big Barn offers extensive living space with a flexibility of accommodation to suit one's requirements. The property offers 5,340 square foot (496.1 square meters) of living space over two levels and is finished to the very highest standards both internally and externally. This is an incredibly efficient home with ground source or geothermal heating, triple glazing and underfloor heating throughout.

Internally, the barn offers up to six bedrooms with three reception rooms and most of the rooms affording panoramic rural vistas. Of particular note is the large living area off the kitchen with outstanding views towards Broadhempston and the bi fold doors heading out to a raised patio area, perfect for al fresco dining.

All rooms have thermostatically controlled zonal heating and there is CAT 5 wiring and satellite TV wired in.

If you are looking for substantial accommodation to suit a variety of needs in a beautiful setting, then The Big Barn could just be your escape to the country..... 

STEP INSIDE When you enter the driveway, you are aware that this is no ordinary barn. The accommodation is substantial in size with large, light and spacious rooms many of which afford wonderful views. The entrance hallway is spacious with storage to either side and a cloakroom/wc. The main reception area is a large 'open plan' living area with feature cast iron woodburner, brick surround and views that must be seen to be fully appreciated. This room also connects the kitchen with its modern units, sleek lines and quality appliances. There are three double bedrooms, two with en suite facilities and a large family bathroom. There is also a TV / cinema room or study to the western side of the house with separate access into the property. There is also a useful utility room with access to an integral single garage with electric door.

There are two double bedrooms to either side of the barn with en suite facilities and walk in wardrobes and a third double bedroom with access to a cavernous loft storage area. There is also a separate family bathroom with shower cubicle which serves the third bedroom. 

STEP OUTSIDE The Big Barn occupies a large plot of around an acre with outstanding views over beautiful South Hams countryside towards Landscove and Broadhempston. In addition to an integral single garage, there is a detached double garage and extensive driveway parking for numerous vehicles. Despite the land being largely lawned there is an attractive Portuguese fire glazed granite terrace outside the living room with breath taking views for many a mile. The granite is also found on the paths, steps and edging around the barn with its colour blending in beautifully with the light grey external cladding. There are two water points, provision for electricity to link to outbuildings of some form and outside lighting and power points.
