This is an exquisite former 18th Century Threshing Barn situated within a central courtyard of the former Mount Wear Country House Estate. Mount Wear House and its agricultural buildings underwent extensive restoration under English Heritage in 2014 to form an exclusive development of highly regarded dwellings. Nestled within the highly sought after address of Countess Wear Road which is located just a stone's throw away from the Riverside Valley Country Park. The Old Stables has been wonderfully restored by the current owner to combine a contemporary yet rustic array of accommodation. Believed to have been re-built in the 19th Century following a fire, the property is constructed of Cob and Heavitree stone and offers vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and rafters, original stable stone floor with drainage channels, exposed stone and brick walls, deep windows with handmade wooden shutters, traditional cast iron radiators, a large oak stable door, newly fitted wood burners and a range which services the central heating and hot water. The kitchen, raised and contemporary, has been hand built with solid Ash and Cherry wood. From the rear elevation the property enjoys extensive views across the nearby beautifully maintained and tree lined King George V park, specifically from the exquisite master bedroom floor to ceiling windows. The property offers three further bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor. On the ground floor in addition to the superb kitchen/living space there are two further reception rooms including a sitting room snug with wood burner. There is also potential and plans for further improvement including development of the existing downstairs bathroom, utility/former kitchen and sunroom.

The rear garden is a particular feature, enclosed with potential to open up to the park, offering huge degrees of privacy, level lawns, seating/ al fresco dining area and raised beds for vegetable planting.

Included within the plans for further development is the current garage with could provide further living accommodation.
