SITUATION

Located in the beautiful Otter valley within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this striking barn conversion enjoys views over open farmland.

Nearby Upottery benefits from a public house - The Sidmouth Arms, village hall, Church, and a well respected Primary School. The A30, about a half a mile to the East, gives rapid access to both Honiton and Exeter to the South West and the A303. Taunton and the M5 motorway are a short drive away to the North.

The historic market town of Honiton benefits from a range of amenities, independent shops, and a station on the London Waterloo line. To the South is England's first World Heritage Site, the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis, with further popular resorts along the coast at Beer, Branscombe and Sidmouth.

THE BARN

Finished in 2015, the barn was converted from a historic stone barn by the current owners to exacting standards, sympathetically renovating the old structure, whilst creating a light modern interior. Features include oak windows and external doors alongside under floor heating, high levels of insulation and the addition of a biomass boiler for heating, and PV panels for electricity generation.

On the ground floor the accommodation is semi open plan with a stunning kitchen/dining room with vaulted ceiling, which is fitted with contemporary gloss kitchen units, a central island and BOSCH appliances. There is also a utility room and cloak room. At one end is a double aspect sitting room with an engineered oak floor and feature fireplace showing off the wood burning stove.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms each with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and fitted cupboards. The largest bedroom has a sumptuous en suite with free standing slipper style bath under a large roof light and separate shower, and a dressing room with fitted cupboards. The guest bedroom has a walk in wardrobe and en suite shower room. The family bathroom has a free standing bath and a separate shower.

OUTSIDE

A shared private drive leads into the cobbled courtyard providing lots of parking. Adjoining the barn there is a cobbled car port, which has consent for a ground floor fifth bedroom suite. Double doors open into the garage workshop, which together with the boiler room presents an opportunity to enlarge the accommodation further subject to consents.

There is a large patio along the Southern elevation of the barn with steps leading up through the garden which is laid to lawn, and is surrounded by hedge banks. Attached to the barn on the East elevation is a large timber garden store.

West of barn the gently sloping paddock looks out across the Otter valley. A a concrete pad provides the base for an array of PV panels benefitting from the Feed In Tariff, generating both electricity and money.

WARRANTY

The property benefits from the remainder of a 10 year Build Zone structural warranty.

SERVICES

Mains water and electric. Private drainage (treatment plant). PV Panels with FIT.
