SITUATION An enviably located and recently renovated detached barn conversion (plus an adjacent barn with spacious ancillary accommodation) is situated at the higher end of the quiet hamlet of Lovaton with direct access to the moor. Lovaton falls within the Parish of Meavy and is only ½ mile to this popular moorland village or a 10 minute downhill walk to the famous Royal Oak Inn. Lovaton is only a 5 minute drive to Yelverton with all its local shops and amenities and 20 minutes to the market town of Tavistock. The property sits within its own one-acre garden with stunning south-easterly views up the valley towards Brisworthy and the open moor. A separate two-acre field, with orchard and paddock, has panoramic views to Brentor in the North, Bodmin to the West and Plymouth Sound to the South. From the property and field there is direct access to the open moor. 

DESCRIPTION The property; two natural stone constructed barns, which originally formed part of a small farm in Lovaton and are believed to date back to the 1800's. The main house retains many original features and oak beams and comprises three double bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite) and a very spacious boot-room and utility with slate flagstone flooring. The family kitchen is the heart of this now open plan property with its own large four oven AGA, leading down oak steps to the dining and sitting rooms. The present owners have recently renovated the property to a very high standard, turning it back to a conventional layout (where previously living accommodation had been on the first floor). Externally the layout of the two barns gives a wonderful open courtyard (very French in its feel) for outdoor summer dining. The 'Hayloft' or ancillary barn, comprises on the ground floor a large workshop/store, log store and stable. The second floor has been converted to provide a double bedroom, living space, bathroom and storage (suitable for guests or B&B accommodation). A spacious studio/office has been constructed in the garden, along with a greenhouse and chicken coup.

AGENTS NOTE The track is not owned by anyone (only the Queen) and as such there are no written 'rights of way' - maintenance is at the discretion of both the owners of Higher Lovaton (the farmhouse) and Higher Lovaton Barn. The track is occasionally used by farmers accessing their fields and once a year the annual Dartmoor 'Drift' is directed down this track - a wonderful sight! The track has recently been opened up at the higher end (out on to the Moor) with new drainage systems put in by the National Park - to allow for full bridle path access. Great for walking or riding directly out onto the moors!
The Hayloft (ancillary barn) has a covenant stating it can only be used as an 'adjunct' to the main house and never to be sold as a separate dwelling.
As a 'barn' within the DNP - it is not open to permissive development rights as other properties are. (All external changes are subject to planning permission).
Newly installed: Oil tank, water pump and filtration system, all electrics, radiators, new bathrooms throughout as well as high levels of insulation throughout the building which have significantly reduced running costs. 

SERVICES Mains electricity to the building. Oil fired central heating and oil fired AGA. Private 'spring fed' water supply (pump and filtration system are housed within the store room in the Hayloft). Septic tank system. Good WiFi and Broadband connection. (Oil tank, water pump/filtration, all electrics - are all newly installed)
