Full Property Details

This is a small development with a lovely southerly outlook across open farmland. This is one of two houses offering four bedrooms, a south facing garden and two parking spaces. New pictures to follow shortly!

This is a small development of just four properties, each with a lovely southerly outlook across open farmland.

97 and 103 High Street (plots 4 and 1 respectively) are three bedroom properties, whereas 99 and 101 High Street (plots 3 and 2 respectively) are four bedrooms, finishing this small development on the edge of the village. There is also a barn that is being converted but the details for this are yet to be finalised.

I was very surprised by the space that these properties offer. The floorplans are quite deceptive, as the designs themselves are not unusual for modern three or four bedroom houses but are built on a much larger scale. I was genuinely surprised by how much space is on offer. The finish is very good as well; each kitchen offering an integrated dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine and eye level double oven and hob. There is space in each kitchen for a dining table and also space in the living room for a table and chairs. The master bedrooms are a really good size and have large built in wardrobes. There are some nice touches too, such as plug sockets with USB ports for charging mobile phones/devices and the main bedroom has Sky compatible connections in addition to an aerial point (which all the bedrooms have).

Set on its own plot with private access road and parking areas, The Orchard is situated on the edge of the village and benefits from attractive countryside views across fields to the south.
The 3-bedroom houses have a kitchen/dining room, hallway, and cloakroom at the front of the ground floor with a full width living room at the rear of the house with French doors out into the garden. Upstairs are three well-proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom.

The 4-bedroom houses have a WC, utility room and study at the front of the ground floor, with a good sized living room and separate kitchen/dining room at the rear. Both these rooms benefit from French doors leading out to the garden with the living room having a timber gazebo over the patio area. From the centrally positioned hallway, the staircase leads up to four well-sized bedrooms as well as a family bathroom. The master bedroom also has en-suite facilities.

All four of the houses are traditionally built and have gas central heating via a combination boiler and radiators.

Outside, all of the properties benefit from small garden areas to the front with larger terraced rear gardens making the most of the views across the countryside. Each property also benefits from two parking spaces within the parking court area to the south of the properties which is accessed via the private entrance road.

Halberton is conveniently placed within a few minutes of Junction 27 of the M5 and Tiverton Parkway Rail Station and only a few minutes' drive to Tiverton. There is a regular bus service in both directions. Halberton is a large, rural Parish in the County of Devon, between the towns of Cullompton and Tiverton, close to the city of Exeter. Outside the village are several other small communities and hamlets.

Halberton was once important enough to be a 'Hundred', an administrative division of a shire.
This included the parishes of Halberton, Sampford Peverell and Willand, as well as parts of Uplowman and Burlescombe. Many of the farms date back to Doomsday or shortly after and Halberton is still largely a farming community. Halberton village is divided into two parts, Higher Town and Lower Town, separated by the mill stream and pond. The pond is fed by warm springs and never freezes.

The Great Western railway once had a branch line running through Halberton to Tiverton, but this has now gone. However, the Grand Western Canal still runs through the village and this is now a country park. It is 11 miles long running from Tiverton to Loudwells.

There are several old houses in the village, the most notable being 'The Priory', believed to date from the 14th century, when it was part of a college called St. Jude's. This was occupied by monks of the order of St. Augustine. Townsend House dates from the early 18th century, and several other houses in the village date from the 17th and 18th centuries.

The parish church dates from the 14th century and stands at the centre of the village. It is thought to have been constructed on the site of an earlier Saxon church. There is also a Methodist Chapel.

The Primary School, erected in 1844 has seen many changes and extensions over the years, and although still small, is well equipped with modern equipment.

There is a very popular farm shop/café, an active Parish Council, and many other organisations which cater for all tastes.

Uniquely, Halberton has its own Business Directory and its own village website www.halberton.org where a wealth of village life, activities and community information can be found. Do take a look!

Three Rivers Developments are continuing to develop a diverse portfolio of sought-after properties form one bedroom apartments to four bedroom detached houses. They are all sympathetically designed to the locality and reflect the characteristics and style of their surroundings. They are a wholly owned company of Mid Devon District Council, whose reputational values and aims are aligned in building new homes and communities.

We may need a few days' notice for viewings as the site is still active but do get in touch with us and we will organise a viewing for you.

From Tiverton follow the Halberton signs out of the Town and you will come to the village of Halberton. Go through the village towards Sampford Peverell, do not turn right at the Barge Inn and The Orchard will be found approximately 100 yards along on the right hand side.
