Tenure: Freehold

Manor Barn is a detached, four double bedroom barn conversion which has been completely renovated from the original 1830s barn to create a beautifully light and spacious family home. The property has been sympathetically designed to keep many of the appealing original features, such as the red sandstone exterior and attractive wood panelling. The house is also double glazed throughout. The beautiful views of the surrounding countryside have been taken full advantage of from every room, with the majority of the windows to the rear of the house, which faces south and towards the tranquil surrounding countryside.

The accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance hall, a dining room with attractive wood panelling and beautiful views, and a large kitchen with granite worktops, electric hob, oven and integrated dishwasher. Leading from the kitchen is the conservatory, with spectacular south facing views of the surrounding farmland and countryside beyond. Photo chromatic glass has been installed in the roof to regulate the temperature. There is a balcony with steps down to the garden below, ideally placed for enjoying the views. Also on the ground floor is a utility room and a cloakroom with WC. A side door leads into the double garage.

To the left of the entrance hall, steps lead up to a generously proportioned, double aspect sitting room, with a large fireplace as it’s focal point and original beams. The family room is on the first floor, which is another large room offering flexible living space. Up a further flight of stairs is the attic, providing ample storage and offering the potential for conversion into further accommodation if required. Downstairs, there are four double bedrooms, three with en suites. The master bedroom has a large dressing area with four double fitted wardrobes, glass patio doors to the garden and an en suite bathroom.

There are three further double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes and pretty views of the gardens. The second bedroom also has glass patio doors to the garden, as well as use of a stylish, newly fitted, Jack and Jill bathroom as an en suite. Bedroom three also has an en suite shower room.

Manor Barn is located in the centre of the pretty village of Coffinswell, just 2.5 miles from the beautiful South Devon coastline at Maidencombe Beach. The village is in a Conservation Area and has a good community, with a church and a popular inn called ‘The Linny’. Coffinswell lies in a rural valley surrounded by farmland, and has many
traditional Devon cob and thatch cottages.

Torquay, approximately 3 miles away, is situated on the South Devon coast and has miles of sandy beaches. There are a number of excellent state and private schools within reach including Torbay’s three well-regarded Grammar schools. The lively harbour side has a myriad of restaurants and continental cafés; here you will find Torquay’s international deep water marina. For those that enjoy life on the ocean wave the English Riviera is perfect with nine beaches within the bay, all beautiful, some secluded.

The town centre of Newton Abbot is approximately 3 miles away with a very good range of schools, shops, restaurants, cafes, a weekly market and mainline train station. Coombeshead Academy the well-regarded Stover School are easily accessible from here. Newton Abbot is perfectly positioned between Dartmoor National Park and the beautiful Devon coastline. Dartmoor is only a short distance
away and provides opportunities for horse riding and walking; whilst other leisure pursuits nearby include golf, tennis and wonderful sailing in the waters of Torbay.

Exeter, approximately 19 miles away, is the most thriving city in the South West and offers a wide choice of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a wealth of good shopping, including John Lewis, and an ever increasing number of restaurants, soon to include The Ivy. An IKEA is also planned for completion in 2018. Many primary and secondary schools can be found in Exeter including Exeter School and The Maynard; whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the best in the country.

Communication links include a direct rail service
to London Paddington from Newton Abbot, and the new South Devon Highway has improved the journey times to Exeter and the M5 motorway. Exeter International airport operates flights to business and holiday destinations, with daily services to London City Airport.

Manor Barn is approached from the lane onto a gravel driveway and turning area with parking for several cars in front of the double garage and house. There is gated access to the side of the property which leads to the rear gardens. The beautiful, south-facing landscaped garden to the rear of the property provides ample space for entertaining, with a spacious paved patio and terrace looking towards the magnificent views of the countryside and the valley beyond. There is also a large, level lawn surrounded by established flowerbeds with a wide variety of flowering shrubs and trees.

Manor Barn has also been granted planning consent for a four bedroom house in the current gardens, with access via the side of the house. Water and electricity have been installed.
