Although enjoying the beauty and tranquillity of the countryside, the property is by no means isolated, lying just a few miles from the Honiton, famous for its High Street and excellent antique trade. Honiton has a main line railway station to London Waterloo. Exeter and Taunton are within easy reach and offer excellent shopping facilities and a fast train service to London and other parts of the country.

DESCRIPTION

This substantial period barn was converted by the present vendors over 30 years ago, working with the old barn and its solid stone walls to create a delightful, characterful property. Traditionally built with mellow flint stone elevations under a slated roof with attractive gabled first floor dormer windows, exposed beams and stone work, double glazing and an adaptable accommodation.

The principle rooms are positioned to take full advantage of the sun and the stunning views over the Otter Valley, the double aspect sitting room with two sets of doors opening onto the terrace as well as a feature fireplace. The dining hall is set in the centre lit by the large glazed former granary door opening. The large kitchen breakfast room, has been recently refitted with a range of modern units and integrated appliances. To the rear is a utility and downstairs shower room.

A double height hall has a feature staircase rising to a galleried landing leading to two double bedrooms and a family bathroom, a second stair takes you to another two bedrooms, allowing some potential to have semi-independent accommodation, or combined with conversion of the impressive height in the garage for more formal accommodation, subject to consents.

GARAGE AND STORE

Incorporated into the old barn, the garage is predominately 1 storey making this already large space particularly substantial, combined with a secure workshop/store. Workshop/ store has a separate entrance lending itself to become a separate annex, subject to consents.

GROUNDS

The property is approached from the quiet lane through a timber gate to a gravel parking and turning area for several cars. The garden sweeps around the south and west elevations of the barn with a paved terrace positioned to make the most of the wonderful views. The grounds are laid to lawn with well stocked borders providing a wealth of colour and interest through the seasons.
