A fabulous barn conversion with countryside views, offering exceptional style and space, with no attention to detail forgotten, a sensational retreat ideal for exploring both Devon and Cornwall.

This stunning converted barn, formally an out-lying property of the Wood Estate, is positioned at the end of a private lane and stands proudly over-looking the surrounding countryside. This property enjoys a quiet farmland location, surrounded by green fields, nearby open barns and benefits from lovely countryside walks direct from its front door, as well as rambles across nearby Dartmoor. Amenities can be found at the nearby villages of South Tawton and Sticklepath and a little further afield is the town of Okehampton. The vibrant city of Exeter, with its magnificent cathedral, shops, and restaurants is a short drive away. Ideally placed between North and South Devon coastlines with sandy beaches and sheltered coves, making this a superb location for friends and family alike.

Entering this stunning semi-detached house, you are immediately greeted by the vast light and airy lounge/diner. This extremely comfortable space has a TV, stone fireplace with an open fire and pool table. From here, step up to the well-equipped contemporary kitchen. This has, to one side a breakfast bar and table with double doors opening onto the patio and garden beyond. The kitchen with beautiful granite worktops has everything you might need to cook and entertain with two electric ovens and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and wine-fridge. Next door to the kitchen is a large boot room, great for when returning from outdoor activities and for drying coats, boots, wet suits and dogs. There is also a separate WC with utility area housing the washing machine. Off the lounge/diner is a large snug with TV/DVD, this forms a perfect movie room or children’s den. Heading upstairs to the first floor from the lounge/diner to the gallery landing, you will find five light and airy bedrooms. Some bedrooms and bathrooms have low sloping ceilings with exposed oak beams, which is all part of the charm and character of this fabulous barn conversion. The stylish master king-size bedroom has a large picture window looking out over the garden and beyond, it also boasts a freestanding bath, which is thoughtfully separated from the sleeping area by a low wall. In addition, it also has an en-suite shower room and WC. There is also a double bedroom also with an en-suite shower room and WC, and a twin bedroom. There is also a contemporary bathroom with hand-held shower over bath, separate shower and WC. The fourth bedroom is a family room, with a double and 2’6” single bed with an additional single pull-out bed, this room also has a door down to fifth bedroom, which can be locked. The final bedroom is a king-size with additional sofa bed, that can accommodate one guest, and en-suite shower room with shower and WC. The final bedroom also has a second staircase leading down to the snug.
