Situation

Mill Barn, overlooking the River Teign, is situated just outside the popular Teign Valley village of Dunsford, which sits on the eastern fringes of the Dartmoor National Park. Dunsford is particularly popular because of its strong community which supports its own primary school, popular inn, post office/village store, restaurant, tea rooms and garage. The property is well placed for access to the university and cathedral city of Exeter (9 miles), which has an extensive range of facilities befitting a centre of its importance including shopping, dining, theatre, sporting and recreational pursuits. It has railway stations on the London Waterloo and Paddington lines and Exeter International Airport lies 4 miles to the east of the city.

Due to its position, Dunsford has many thousands of unspoilt moorland acres on its door step, and the area is recognised for its beauty and provides wonderful opportunities for the countryside enthusiast including walking, riding, cycling and fishing. There are splendid walks at the nearby Steps Bridge as well as woodland owned by the Woodland Trust.

Description

Mill Barn, as its name suggests, is one of a pair of barns which at once formed part of Dunsford Mill. Of rendered cob and stone elevations beneath a slate roof, the property has been sympathetically developed to create a spacious and characterful four bedroom family home. It combines many period features including original fireplaces, solid wooden floors and exposed ceiling beams, as well as all the benefits of modern living including oil-fired central heating and double glazing. The gardens overlook the River Teign.

Accommodation

A solid wooden door leads to a spacious reception hallway off which are the principal living rooms. The sitting room is triple aspect with feature granite and brick fireplace with oak lintel and inset wood burner, and exposed ceiling beams. The large farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room has a range of eye and base level units with space for cooker, wooden flooring, granite fireplace with oak lintel and wooden stable door to the garden. Of further note on the ground floor is a cloakroom.

Turning staircase leads to the first floor accommodation comprising four bedrooms, the master having a modern en suite shower room, together with family bathroom which has a separate shower cubicle, panelled bath, wc and wash basin.

Outside

Mill Barn is approached from the lane via a shared driveway, (shared with the neighbouring barn) and this leads past the barns to a reserved parking area for three vehicles.

The barn is separated from the driveway by a granite wall with a five bar gate leading to the level garden. This is mainly laid to lawn with a patio area adjoining the rear of the property. To the rear of the house is a small area of lawn with granite steps leading down to the old mill leat.
