Tenure: Freehold

The White Barn is a typical example of "not judging a book by its cover" with a modest first impression yet the property has undergone major improvements in recent years creating a stunning barn conversion being thoughtfully designed and in keeping with this age of property boasting a wealth of character whilst accommodating modern day living. The building was originally two separate large barns which have been brought together to create this highly versatile large family home which could easily accommodate two families to live independently side by side.

The heart of the village is a short level walk away with excellent amenities including a highly regarded primary school, community run shop, church, two public houses and a railway line connecting Exeter and London Waterloo.

The spacious well-proportioned accommodation briefly comprises; reception hall with cloakroom W/C and principle bespoke staircase. The kitchen/breakfast room is a lovely size and well equipped with an extensive range of timber fronted cupboards and drawers both at base and eye level whilst integrating modern appliances including a double oven, dishwasher and oil fired Rayburn. There are attractive granite effect worktops with inset halogen hob and plenty of room for a family sized breakfast table and chairs with the utility room offering additional storage and appliance space. The characterful drawing room with feature fireplace has a woodburning/multi-fuel stove and there are French doors giving direct access to the rear garden with a secondary staircase to a bedroom on the first floor. The formal dining room is a most impressive room with full height glazed windows and French doors creating a lovely light and airy feel whilst enjoying pleasant garden outlooks. Attractive tiling with underfloor heating continues through to the stunning multi-aspect spacious sitting room with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. This is a wonderful room which must be seen to fully appreciate. There is a ground floor luxury shower room and stairs lead to an independent bedroom; lending itself as a master suite. A connecting door leads through to the self-contained annexe with open plan kitchen/living area, spacious double bedroom and en-suite shower room on the first floor. This could also be part of a substantial family home if required. On the first floor are three further double bedrooms, one benefitting from a private staircase and a large en-suite bathroom with feature roll-top bath with ornate feet. All rooms enjoy individual character and orientated to overlook the attractive Victorian walled garden.

Whimple: The mainline railway station on the London Waterloo-Exeter line is within the village, as are the doctor's surgery, post office, church, bus service, well respected local primary school and heritage centre. There is also a cricket field and two good family pubs. The old A30 runs near the village which gives quick access to the A30 dual carriageway for easy journeys to Honiton, Exeter and the M5. Ottery St Mary is about 3 miles, Exeter 8 miles and the coast at Sidmouth is within a short drive.

The rear garden is fully enclosed by an attractive Victorian wall enjoying an excellent degree of privacy and seclusion with a patio and decking area providing plenty of room to enjoy outdoor dining/entertaining in this lovely setting.
