Every so often, a property comes up and it blows you away, and this one will not disappoint. It’s located just outside of Colebrooke and sits in a private plot backing onto open countryside with some pretty spectacular rural views. It’s technically attached to the neighbour only by the unconverted barn, hence having to call it attached but it’s not what the mind conjures up when you hear this. The private driveway and parking is independent and away from the neighbour and the inner courtyard is again private with only the rear wall of the neighbouring barn visible and no windows overlook this courtyard – an important point.
Attractive iron gates give access to the inner courtyard with a pathway to the front porch and door to the main house and additional access to the workshop, an unconverted barn and a wood-store. Worth noting is that the unconverted barn is accessible and spacious enough to house a car if required, for a project for instance, and with direct access from the conservatory to the barn, this is sure to be a real attraction. Of course, subject to the necessary permissions, this barn maybe converted into further accommodation.
When you enter the main house through the front doorway, the quality of the finish is evident with a double height hall and oak flooring and staircase. The room sizes, particularly the living spaces are large with the living room having a lovely fireplace and even a gallery study area which is a lovely feature. There’s a conservatory at the rear taking in some stunning rural views and the kitchen/dining room is a light and sociable space. Useful for a family home is a utility room (with additional door to garden/parking) and a separate boot room.
There’s a ground floor double bedroom and luxury bathroom, and leading off the downstairs hallway a door to the adjoining garage which is larger than a single. Further on again is the workshop with plenty of additional eaves storage and room to create! For anyone looking to be able to work from home or has hobbies requiring space, there are so many options here – home working, gym, studios, the list is endless. On the first floor are 3 further bedrooms and another stunning bathroom. The garden sits mainly to the south and east meaning plenty of light all day. It’s pretty much lawned with amazing views. The parking is suitable for multiple vehicles with access to the garage being on the parking side too.

DIRECTIONS : From Crediton, head West towards Copplestone and at Barnstaple Cross, turn left as signed to Coleford. Enter the village and pass The New Inn and then take a left at the next junction, follow this road into Colebrooke. Pass the church and out of the village, The Barton will be found after approx. 1 mile on the left.
COLEBROOKE is a compact, pastoral village in the heart of a low-lying part of Devon; characterised by a gentler landscape, patches of dense broadleaf woodland and from time to time flourishing orchards. Its church is a key focal point, and famous for its connection to Henry Kingsley’s novel ‘The Recollections of Geoffrey Hamlyn’. Furthermore, it is the speculated home of the mythological ‘Uncle Tom Cobley’, a treasured character from the Devonian folk song ‘Widecombe Fair’. It is said he was an “amorous bachelor” with fiery red hair. For a delicious, freshly prepared meal The New Inn in Coleford is only half a mile away. The village of Yeoford is 2 miles southward. This has another great local pub, The Mare and Foal – with a pleasant stream-side beer garden. In addition, there is a railway station and primary school. For a greater range of facilities, the market town of Crediton is a 10-minute drive away.
