Cart Linhay is a beautiful, detached barn conversion which was completed in 2020 to a very high standard for the current owners. It is found amongst a selection of other barn conversions and a farmhouse, in a superb rural position with fantastic views and is accessed via a long lane from Morchard Road.
The high-specification accommodation reaches 150sqm / 1,600sqft and includes a stunning open-plan living and dining space, complete with a feature wood-burning stove, full height vaulted ceilings and an abundance of glazing running the full length, with two 2.5m sliding doors. The porcelain floor tiles continue into the kitchen, which enjoys granite worktops, including the breakfast bar, with integrated all-in-one induction hob and extractor, two Neff ovens, fridge freezer and AEG dishwasher. There is also a handy utility room and downstairs WC. There are three double bedrooms in total, the 2nd and 3rd are found on this level and both include fully tiled wet-room style en-suites. Proceeding up the bespoke staircase, we reach the fantastic master bedroom which has its own vaulted ceiling, two double wardrobes and one of the nicest en-suite bath and shower rooms you are likely to come across!
There are eco-credentials too, with solar panels for hot water, underfloor heating to both floors, provided by the air-source heat pump system, as well as double glazed doors, windows and skylights. The bedroom windows have internal blinds and every skylight (apart from the utility) is electronically controlled.
Outside: Stepping out through the large sliding doors we have a beautifully paved sun terrace, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining and offering superb rural views beyond the lawned garden. There is also a hot-tub, outside lights and power.
Proceeding down the private drive, there is initially parking for 2-3 cars, then an open-fronted double garage with light, power and a tap, with a lock-up store to the rear and an attached wood-store to the side. Beyond is a former farmyard (providing masses of parking) with a block-built outbuilding (18.5m x 5m) suitable for keeping animals, as a workshop or creating stables if desired. There is a large concrete base (formerly an open-barn, now removed) with a 2.5 acre field beyond, also accessible from the lane behind. Further acreage may be available from the local farmer, by separate negotiation after completion.
POTENTIAL SITE: The current owners submitted a planning application to create an additional single-story dwelling where the concrete base and current outbuilding is sited. This application was refused, but advice suggests on appeal there is a fair chance of it being approved. Plans are available from Helmores or via Mid-Devon Planning website (21/01453/FULL) and full plans would be provided to the next owner

MORCHARD BISHOP is a village and civil parish set in the sumptuous hills and valleys of Mid-Devon, halfway between the North and South of the County, 7 miles west of Crediton and 14 miles from the regional capital, Exeter. The showpiece is the spectacular 16th Century Church of St Mary's, one of two churches in the village. This small but thriving community, with a population of just under 1000 has a primary school, doctor's surgery and local shops. Those who lead an active lifestyle can take advantage of the football, netball and outdoor tennis clubs as well as enjoying a game of bowls on the Green. At the centre is the friendly London Inn, loved for its generous servings of delicious, locally sourced food. Dating back 400 years, this traditional pub was once a stop for passing coaches when the main road from Exeter ran through the village. Today, the nearby railway station at Morchard Road carries passengers from Exeter to Barnstaple along the scenic Tarka Line. Dartmoor and Exmoor, areas of outstanding natural beauty are within 30 minutes' drive.
CREDITON : An ancient market town, with a contemporary feel – only a short, 20-minute drive NW from the city of Exeter. Set in the Vale of the River Creedy, amongst gentle, rolling hills and verdant pastures. Sincerely picture postcard. Once the capital of Devon, Crediton is famed for its inspiring sandstone church and for being the birthplace of Saint Boniface in 680 AD. Its high street is a vibrant place, abuzz with trade –artisan coffee shops, roaring pubs, a farmers’ market and bakeries, jam-packed with mouthwatering delights. For those commuting it has hassle free transport links into Exeter and for schooling a prestigious community college (Queen Elizabeth’s) – with an Ofsted “outstanding” sixth form. In addition, it boasts a brilliant gym & leisure centre for New Year’s resolutions, two supermarkets for the weekly shop and a trading estate for any practical needs. All neatly held in a single valley.
