SITUATION

DESCRIPTION

This well converted stone barn has been recently enhanced by the vendors offering a chance for the successful purchaser to create a master en suite on the ground floor, or continue to use this area as a studio/workshop. The barn conversion has a slate roof with much of the original large granite stonework exposed, providing much sought after character.

ACCOMMODATION

From the large parking area to the front, a door leads into the fully tiled hall with doors to two double bedrooms and a superb family shower room with a large walk in shower cubicle. The barn retains the original exposed ceiling timbers which are a focal point, particularly in the bedrooms. From one of the ground floor bedroom a stable door provides access to a secluded stone walled courtyard. At the rear of the entrance hall is the utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine, with tumble drier and kitchen units with a sink/drainer unit. The current private water UV filters are located here, but will be removed when the mains water is connected. There is a door into the large square studio room, recently plastered and ready to be converted into an en suite, fourth bedroom, should the purchaser wish to convert it. The plumbing is already in situ for the en suite.

Upstairs the landing is utilised as a library/study area around the central timber staircase. There is a further stable door to an external staircase. Sitting room with a stone chimney breast and working open fire. Large picture windows to both elevations, making this room very bright. Kitchen with a range of shaker style base and eye level units with solid beech worktop, Belfast sink, space and plumbing for a free standing dishwasher. A Rangemaster Elan range cooker with Belling extractor, space for a free standing fridge/freezer. The landing extends to the far side of the house where there is a further double bedroom, enjoying good views and benefits from built wardrobes. A superb family bathroom with limed exposed pine floorboards, with a free standing bath, attractive bathroom cabinetry and further built in storage. Separate WC. To the rear of the house, the greenhouse provides access to the garden.

OUTSIDE

The well landscaped and designed gardens provide a number of terraced sitting areas, utilising railway sleepers to provide the necessary support. A central flight of steps leads past the rockery area at the rear of the garden and up to an elevated stone patio providing superb far reaching views over the house, beyond the village church and over the countryside beyond. The gardens are bordered on one side by the original stone and Devon banks and a timber fence on the other. There are double gates providing access to the lane from the rear garden. There is a useful timber garden shed. To the front, there is parking for at least 4 vehicles. The stone lean too barn divides into two parts, one used as a workshop and the other double height section for storage.
