Superb detached barn conversion finished to an EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH STANDARD offering versatile accommodation which could be utilised as a substantial five bedroom family home or as a three bedroom principal residence with two bedroom cottage style annexe/holiday let. Set within approximately twelve acres of land with stunning views over the surrounding countryside and Dartmoor National Park, the property is ideally set up for equestrian use with useful outbuildings, covered yard, American style barn stabling and a further detached stone barn which has pre-planning application approval for full residential conversion. From the top field, there is direct access on to a country bridleway for riding and walking. The property was converted by the current owners in 2003/2004 and has an excellent level of finish throughout, offering a wealth of charm and character with a farm house style. To the first floor, the bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and exposed roof trusses offering a great sense of space and opulence. There is an attractive farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room, large living room and formal dining room as well as a further sitting room which with a large utility area/second kitchen, could provide additional accommodation with a secondary staircase leading to two further bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a considerable amount of potential to further develop the site should someone require additional income opportunities in the long term. The barn has underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and radiators to the first floor. Photovoltaics have been fitted to the workshop barn to provide on average sufficient income to cover the electricity bill for the year and also goes some way to covering the cost of the oil for the central heating, making this an extremely cost effective and affordable home to run. The property only has one near neighbour and this does not impinge on the privacy afforded to the property and grounds. NO ONWARD CHAIN
