Located about a mile from the small Devon town of North Tawton, this amazing barn conversion was completed in 2020 so is presented in first class condition both inside and out. It’s hard to do justice to the size and finish without visiting so if you’re in the market for a large and modern 4 bedroom home – this one could be for you. The barn is semi-detached to a similar property next door and having gained planning, both were converted for the occupiers themselves, so this is the first time it’s been for sale.
The interesting architecture of the original barn is retained in the inverted buttresses which along with the anthracite windows give it a unique and contemporary look. It’s clear upon arrival that the property has been done to a great standard but it’s only on entry that you get to feel the space that’s on offer internally – over 2300 sqft. The entrance hall is wide, light and welcoming and draws you in. The large living room is central to the rear with two sets of triple sliding doors opening out onto the raised patio and takes in the view over the garden and surrounding countryside. There’s a huge kitchen/dining room, again with plenty of light which is the hub of this fantastic home. Off the kitchen is a utility room which links to the integral garage and plant room and doors lead to outside. The bedroom accommodation is off the central hallway and there are 4 bedrooms in total, 2 with ensuite and the principal bedroom has a wall of fitted wardrobes. The ensuites are very stylishly fitted as is the main bathroom which wouldn’t feel out of place in a top hotel!
Outside, the driveway brings you in from the country lane and into your own parking area with plenty of room for numerous vehicles. There’s a separate garage with an electric roller door and an adjoining fully insulated workshop with separate access. The front garden sets it back from the drive and is fenced and then the rear garden is south facing, and the lawn gently slopes away. There’s raised seating areas and a hot tub (available by separate negotiation) plus storage and raised beds. The whole garden is fenced and gated and is a terrific space with some super views over the countryside.
Agent’s Note: Built in 2020 by a professional builder (current owner) it was completed to a high standard and with all the necessary permissions. As it was done as their own home, there was no structural warranty so if you require a lender, please seek advice prior to offering.

NORTH TAWTON is a small town, built alongside the banks of ‘The River Taw’. Settlements in and around the ‘Taw Valley’ experience a haven-like quality, between the often steep-edged hillsides – a contrast to other areas of more open farmland. The town has a selection of shops, a primary school, The Fountain and The White Hart pubs and an undeniably pretty square. For more choice, by way of facilities the larger town of Okehampton is only 5 miles up the road – where access to the A30 dual carriageway (a link to the City of Exeter) can also be found. North Tawton, as with many Devon towns has a prime medieval church, with a west spire adorned with oak shingles. The town is also known for its superb creamery. The Taw Valley Creamery (est 1974) produces award -winning cheeses, revered locally and nationally.
