Situation - The property is set adjacent to the village green and within close proximity of the village church in the heart of the quiet hamlet of Venn Ottery. Located within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close by is Tipton St John which has a Primary School, village shop, garage, public house, playing field, tennis and cricket club as well as an amateur dramatics society.
The property is roughly equidistant between the local towns of Ottery St. Mary and Sidmouth, both towns providing shops, recreational facilities and good schooling including the renowned Kings School at Ottery St. Mary. Sidmouth, one of the South Wests premier resorts, is famous for its wide beach and esplanade, as well as catering for everyday requirements, including a Waitrose supermarket.
Exeter, accessed via either the A30 or the A3052 coast road, offers more comprehensive facilities with train connections on both the Paddington and Waterloo lines, as well as an international airport and access to the M5 at Junctions 29 and 30.
There are numerous public footpaths and tracks in the area providing excellent walking and riding country.

Description - Converted from the former farm buildings to the attached Venn Ottery Barton, there are lots of individual features likely to date from the 16th Century including mullion windows and exposed timbers. Between the 1970's and 1990's the property was used as a country hotel, before returning to a dwelling; the current owners have undergone a substantial program of renovation and improvement to create a wonderful family home with both contemporary and traditional values. Having been converted from two smaller units the layout still affords a degree of flexibility.

Accommodation - The front door takes you through to an expansive hallway, providing access straight through to the rear and into the heart of the house - the open plan kitchen / dining room. This impressive space is light and airy with a large part having vaulted ceilings framed by substantial exposed timbers, the kitchen is well fitted with a built in larder and free-standing style in-frame kitchen units under a light quartz worktop, a central island unit provides further units and a breakfast bar. An engineered Oak floor provides an attractive practical flooring connecting the dining area, whilst French Doors lead out into the south facing courtyard.
The sitting room has a large double glazed window over-looking the village green with a cosy atmosphere generated by the wood burning stove.
Down the hallway is the third double bedroom which has a en suite WC and built in cupboard. The family bathroom has under floor heating, a towel rail, and a Victorian style suite with claw-foot free standing bath. Just a few steps takes you to the master bedroom, this spacious room over-looks the village green and has a dressing room and en suite shower room. On the ground floor below is the guest bedroom with a separate study/dressing room, a door to the courtyard as well as an en suite shower room.

The Piggery - A single storey brick former piggery, which has been used as an office or studio accommodation in the past. This adaptable space is currently used as a bedroom with an en suite shower room. Adjoining this is a store room is used to house the oil boiler.

Outside - There are two entrances to this property, one coming from the relatively modern Barton Mews into a large car park which is owned with the property and often used with permission by the adjoining Church. Double gates lead from here into a lovely private cobbled courtyard.
The other entrance is located to the south of the property with double timber gates leading from this quiet tarmac lane to a small hard standing parking area. The lawns slope down towards the property and lead to a brick built former piggery. A small courtyard is formed by the studio and the Dray.
