Situation - Denbow Barton is situated in a lovely rural location in the hamlet of Denbow, a settlement that is believed to date back to the 12th or13th Century, a short distance from the small village of Farringdon which lies in a highly accessible part of East Devon. Just one mile away is an excellent farm shop including fish and butchers department as well as a cafe. The centre of the university and cathedral city of Exeter is only six miles away, which has an excellent range of facilities befitting a centre of its importance. The M5 motorway is only four miles away. The East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is just to the east where Woodbury Common also is found, providing excellent facilities for walking, riding and cycling. The Exe Estuary is five miles away and the coastal towns of Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth are also within easy reach.

Description - Denbow Barton is an impressive barn conversion situated amongst a small cluster of properties. The property offers a generous layout of well-presented accommodation with oak flooring, revealed beams and plastered internal walls creating a cottage feel. In addition there are fabulous large gardens.

Accommodation - An entrance porch leads through into the inner hall providing stairs to the first floor, a cloakroom and a study which has a rear aspect window and oak flooring. To the right of the hall is an inviting dual aspect sitting room featuring a brick fireplace with an inset wood burner and revealed beams. Sliding patio doors lead to the delightful conservatory which offers wonderful views and access to the garden. The spacious L-shaped kitchen/dining room is certainly the heart and entertaining area of this property, with revealed beams, oak flooring and two sets of patio doors leading out to a patio area. The kitchen is arranged with matching base and wall units, granite work surfaces, central island and integral dishwasher, fridge and a Stove range-style cooker. To the rear of the kitchen is a door leading through to a secondary access into the property which provides stairs leading up to an extremely versatile room which could offer space for a games room, large office or a family room. Beneath this room are a double garage and a utility room.

On the first floor, bedroom 1 enjoys wonderful views over the garden, a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite shower room. Bedroom 2 has a front aspect window plus a walk-in wardrobe. Bedrooms 3 & 4 both have front aspects. The family bathroom has a shower cubicle, bath, wc, wash basin and a heated towel rail.

Outside - Via a set of timber gates, the drive opens out to a parking area suitable for several vehicles with a well-stocked garden running along the right of the drive. To the left is an outbuilding divided in two (approx 29' x 15' & 9' x 15'). In front of this are a gravelled area and a partitioned section which screens the oil tank. The stunning landscaped gardens extending out to the west of the property have large areas of lawn, planted borders and a variety of trees and shrubs. In the farthest section of the garden is a wonderful pond with a timber walkway leading to a summerhouse. The gardens are enclosed by tall perimeter hedging and fencing. Overall the property amounts to about 0.6 of an acre.

Services - Mains electricity and mains water. Private drainage. Oil-fired central heating.

Directions - From Exeter and the M5, proceed in an easterly direction on the A3052/Sidmouth Road through Clyst St Mary and Cat & Fiddle. After 2 miles, turn left signposted to Village Centre.
