This stunning detached barn conversion boasts stylish and comfortable living and is set just a couple of miles from Crediton, ideal for the A30 and is perfect for those looking for a character country property without being isolated. The hamlet of Venny Tedburn lies to the south west of Crediton with the town’s amenities on the doorstep. There are miles of countryside walks and open countryside within seconds of the property.
The barn was converted with an eye for the detail, plenty of glazing gives some fantastic light and the oil fired underfloor heating to the ground and first floor is ideal for this type of conversion. The thick walls and insulated roof keep in the heat in during the winter and keep it cool in the summer. There is the advantage of solar thermals on the roof too which provide hot water (electric top up). As one would expect, there is double glazing and the waste water is dealt with by a modern treatment plant. There is further potential here to possibly convert the stores into an annexe or home office (subject to permissions).
Internally, the whole property is presented in excellent condition with high ceilings and neutral décor. The kitchen/dining room has exposed timbers and is the heart of the home. There is a good sized utility room and a walk in larder too. The living room, which overlooks the garden, has a more contemporary feel and houses a wood burner. The official hallway, with the front door, is double height and is a very welcoming space. There is a study on the ground floor (or bedroom 5) and a double bedroom with ensuite completes the ground floor of the main barn, which offers flexibility in how the barn is used. On the first floor, a mezzanine study area enjoys the view over the entrance hall and gardens and gives access to the main bedroom with a walk-in dressing room and its own ensuite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms (could be put back into one room) which share an ensuite.
Outside, the property is accessed via its own drive, through the gardens which are lawned and back onto fields. There are a variety of shrubs and trees, including some fruit trees and it’s a private garden. In all, the plot extends to approx. half an acre. There are various seating areas to enjoy both sun and shade and the views over the countryside are fantastic. A covered access gives the opportunity to park in the central courtyard plus the 4-bay car port will be perfect for many buyers. The aforementioned stores make excellent bike/gardening stores but may also suit a range of other uses.
