This stunning Grade II listed detached barn conversion boasts stylish and comfortable living. It offers some impressive design features including extensive uses of natural wood including exposed oak beams. The current owners have enhanced the original conversion to create a modern, characterful home in a quiet accessible semi-rural location, less than a mile from Okehampton but on a country lane. It’s sure to attract a wide range of buyers - with very little to do here, it would be ideal for those looking to enjoy rural life without being isolated in a quality home on the edge of Dartmoor. For those interested, the adjacent barn and garden is currently going through planning and could also be purchased and may suit those wishing to invest in a property for an income or additional family members – ask the agents for more details.
The large and interesting accommodation extends to over 1500sqft, making it a large area for just two bedrooms. The entrance hall is light and double height, with stairs to the first floor and a well fitted WC. The dining room is central to the house with doors out onto the garden or into the cosy living room with wood paneling and an open fire. The kitchen is modern, well fitted and overlooks the gardens. There’s a useful utility/boot room with the back door, ideal for daily coming and goings in the countryside. Upstairs are two large double bedrooms with built-in storage and a large central bathroom fitted with a bath and separate shower which serves both bedrooms with a degree of luxury.
Outside is gated off road parking which leads to the detached double garage with twin electric roller doors. Part of the garage (see floorplan) has been used to create an insulated room which would make an ideal office or hobby room, or even an occasional guest room. There’s a WC room too which is connected into the property’s drainage system.
To the front (roadside) of the barn is a stoned front garden, a pretty space which sets it back from the road and the main garden lies to the rear (south). It’s a large lawned garden, surrounded by mature trees with seating areas, a pond and an abundance of visiting wildlife.
It really is a slice of Devon without being too remote and with the newly opened Okehampton to Exeter railway line, the amenities of Okehampton plus easy access to Dartmoor, this is a truly wonderful property.
Additional plot (available by separate negotiation)
There is a barn for conversion next door to Lower Chichacott Barn and this is currently in for planning to convert to a 2 bedroom dwelling. It has its own entrance and parking plus a generous plot that includes an orchard/garden. This plot could be purchased in addition to the barn should someone require more garden or to develop and sell/retain as an income or simply to have further accommodation for family?
Please ask the agents for more details if this is of interest.
