A stunning village home, nicely tucked away out of sight and yet within easy reach of amenities. Low maintenance 'Mediterranean style' garden. No Onward Chain.
Tucked away in Halberton's 'Lower Town', away from the main road and within its own courtyard and gated drive; Cob barn feels as though you are serenely hidden away from the hubbub of modern life. The courtyard garden provides a tranquil idyll, and once the gate is shut to the drive, you are safe and secure in your own little world. Not only would this make lovely full time home, but it would equally suit as a 'lock up and leave' or holiday let. With Airbnb, taking the world by storm, just imagine what an income could be generated!
From the village lane, a shared entrance opens to a carparking area. Cob Barn has its own gated parking but also benefits from visitor parking in this shared area.
An electric, sliding gate opens to the hard chipped driveway, where two vehicles would be easily parked. A storage shed and separate bin store are found here. The south facing courtyard garden lies to the front of the property and bi-fold doors open from the sitting room and dining area, making for a superb summer property. Don't panic though - now that the weather is starting to turn, the wood burner and underfloor heating also make it a cosy winter property too!
On the ground floor, the large open plan kitchen dining room is impressive - with a large central island being the focal point, providing a granite working surface and plenty of storage below. An oven, microwave, hob and dishwasher are integrated, and there is space for an American style fridge freezer. An external utility room, provides space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, next to which is the boiler room, keeping all of the 'mechanics' of the house away from the living space. There is plenty of room for a large dining table with plenty of chairs, and the bi-fold doors opening to the garden let in that much needed air after a hearty Sunday lunch! The sitting room is a cosy space, the underfloor heating continues through, and a wood burning stove provides a welcoming feature for those wintery evenings.
On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, all of the doubles, featuring built in wardrobes and the master bedroom has a contemporary en-suite shower. The main bathroom is also an unusual style, with curved walls and a freestanding bath with an attractive tiled surround. A large landing has room for a small desk or armchair and the area could double as a home office or reading area.
At the far end of the garden is a lovely seating and barbecue area. A good solid pergola covers this area and would be the perfect base for a vine or wisteria to establish and create a natural and pretty, shaded area. The adjacent utility room with a sink, work surface and power, provides a perfect food preparation area to serve the barbeque or just space for the beer fridge!
Mains electricity, gas, water, and drainage.
Halberton is midway between Tiverton and Sampford Peverell (J27 of the M5). Coming through the village from Sampford Peverell, pass right through Halberton, passing the farm shop on your right. Take the next left, just after the bus stop and proceed down the hill. The property will be seen just beyond the turning for the Church, on the left.
