Grazing Highland cattle and deer can be watched from this superb barn conversion, with a home office, sunny garden and all only a short drive from Exeter or the motorway.
This delightful barn conversion lies on the sunny side of the original farmyard of Garlandhayes Farm and is one of six similar conversions, converted to a high standard by a renowned local developer, who specialized in barn conversions.
The accommodation is presented in a sharp, classic style, very much in keeping, and would especially suit a professional couple or retired folk alike.
From the entrance hall, with adjoining cloak room, practical and attractive slate tiled flooring leads past the home office, or potential Bedroom 4 if required, to the large kitchen/dining room. This is lavishly fitted in an attractive oak style, with granite work surfaces, a Belfast sink unit and integral appliances, including a range cooker, fridge, freezer and dishwasher.
The adjoining sitting room has a contemporary wood burner upon a slate hearth as a focal point, a fine beam in the ceiling and engineered oak flooring. There is underfloor heating and this extends throughout the original ground floor.
The prime feature of the property is the garden room, which makes the very best of the sunny, southerly aspect and enjoys views over the garden and pasture beyond, where farmed deer and Highland and Devon cattle roam. Designed by our clients, this extends across the rear of the barn, blending in perfectly, and with areas for both dining and relaxing, it adds a very special, extra dimension to the living space. With slate tiled flooring, this room also benefits from tremendous solar gain, warmed by the sun to the south.
Upstairs, there are three generous bedrooms, the master with an en suite shower room fitted in a contemporary style, and in all the rooms, there are inlaid ceiling beams, from the original barn conversion, showing its history. The smallest bedroom is currently used as a dressing room and the middle room, a spare room and gym!
The bathroom is fitted with a white suite with a shower over the bath, with a glazed screen.
To the side of the barn, there is an enclosed, brick paved parking area and a short distance from the property, there is additional parking for visitors.
The garden is principally laid to lawn with a paved sitting area and to one side, there is a productive vegetable garden, nicely screened. Beside the conservatory, there is a useful store room, also accessible from the garden.
Services: Mains water, electricity, oil central heating, propane gas for cooking and shared private drainage.
The local amenities of Cullompton are a short drive away and the more extensive services of the cathedral city of Exeter, motorway and rail links can all be reached in less than 30 minutes.
