Tenure: Freehold

A wonderfully unique detached barn conversion & adjoining paddock in excess of 0.75 acre, in a semi-rural setting affording stunning open views from the garden. Beautifully presented throughout and offering versatile accommodation with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and several reception areas. Ample off road parking and covered storage for several cars. A summer house at the top of the paddock enjoys a breathtaking rural view.

The Stable has been in the ownership of the current vendors for 30 years, and was initially converted into a residential property 15 years ago. Recent years have seen further significant alterations and improvements to now offer a truly one of a kind bespoke property offering versatility and scope for the discerning purchaser.

The Stable occupies a rural position situated within the sought after Coly Valley, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and widely regarded as some of the most attractive countryside in the county. The property enjoys a delightful setting situated to the west of the small Devon town of Colyton.

Colyton itself provides a thriving local community with its parish church, town stores and shops, medical practice, public houses and the renowned Colyton Grammar School in nearby Colyford. The coastal town of Seaton is situated approximately 3 miles to the south whilst the larger centres of Axminster and Honiton both offer a good range of everyday shopping and banking facilities. Exeter lies within 26 miles of the property affording an extensive range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities befitting those of an important regional and administrative centre, together with a wide range of primary, secondary and further education facilities.

Despite its rural position the property enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and further afield with access to the M5 motorway available at Exeter (J29) and Taunton (J25). Main line rail services are also available at Axminster and Honiton. Access to the A30/303 trunk route at Honiton provides an easy link to London and the South East, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol. To the south lies the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, with pretty coastal towns and villages such as Lyme Regis, Seaton and Sidmouth.
