A video tour of this property is available. Contact the office for more details.
Approached up a slight slope from the lane, the barn sits well in its grounds and it is very clear to see that this is something rather special in terms of location with fields on three sides and wonderful far reaching views, especially from the terrace and hot tub!
Upon entering the barn through the glazed double doors there is the most welcoming feel as you step into the impressive dining hall with it views and flag stone floor which continues into the kitchen area where there is extensive polished granite work surfaces with handmade units by Winkleigh Timber, along with a large free standing island unit with drawers and wicker baskets under. Appliances include, a range cooker with extractor above, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave and a built in dishwasher.
Equally as impressive and again enjoying views, is the sitting room with its wood flooring, corner fireplace with log burner and mantle and doors lead out onto the terrace or into the garden.
Finishing off the ground floor accommodation is a double bedroom with stylish ensuite shower room.
On the first floor is lovely long galleried landing looking down in part over the glazed front doors and has pine strip flooring which extends into all the bedrooms. At either end of the landing are found two good size double aspect rooms having both velux and floor height windows which give a delightful feel of cosiness and the third bedroom is a smaller double currently set up as a twin. The family bathroom comprises a white suite with large quarry tile style flooring.
Adjoining the dining hall and sitting room is a substantial terrace with hot tub and both seem an ideal place to sit and relax and soak up the view. The grounds are basically a blank canvas comprising lawns, Devon bank hedging, post and wire fencing and dotted with mature trees and shrubs.
Mains electricity, oil fired heating and private drainage.
