Full description

A wonderful position on the Southern edge of Exmoor with outstanding views. A beautifully presented and very comfortable house in close proximity to the popular Exmoor town of Dulverton.

Situation - Lower Chilcott Barn is situated in the hamlet of Chilcott located just south of the Exmoor National Park, approximately 3 miles from Dulverton, which is a delightful country town, well known as The Gateway to Exmoor. Dulverton provides good shopping facilities together with a post office, chemist, health centre, dental and veterinary surgeries, library, primary school and a well-supported town hall. There are also good restaurants and recreational facilities including squash courts, all weather tennis courts, football and cricket pitches.
 
Tiverton is a larger town 16 miles to the south, with more comprehensive retail and recreational opportunities as well as excellent public schooling and access to the M5 at Junction 27. Tiverton Parkway rail station is adjacent to J27 and is on the South West main line to London Paddington. The beautiful cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 30 miles distant and has the advantage of the international airport.
 
From the house and within the nearby Exmoor National Park there are wonderful opportunities to walk and ride in the wooded river valleys and on the open moorland.

Description - Lower Chilcott Barn is a charming and spacious barn conversion situated in a quiet hamlet with lovely rural views across its own mature landscaped gardens to the surrounding countryside. This south facing house has been sympathetically converted in the early 1990s, retaining many original features with stone elevations under a slate roof and now provides high quality and well-proportioned accommodation as illustrated on the floorplan. In addition there is a fine open plan attached barn that has been recently re-roofed, renovated and maintained, which could allow for further expansion subject to the relevant permissions. Set in a total of just under an acre, this would make a fine family home or country retreat.
 

Accommodation - The central front door takes you into the roomy entrance hall with a cloakroom where stairs lead to the first floor. The elegant drawing room is a light and airy room with a feature fireplace, open hearth and windows facing the south views. French doors access the modern conservatory with tiled floors providing an ideal space to enjoy the views and double doors leading outside to the patio and garden. Across the hallway you enter the book room which is a comfortable family room with potential as a dining room. A door leads into the large yet cosy kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units under a solid wood worktop with a Belfast sink. There is ample space for a dining table, an inglenook fireplace houses a wood burning stove and limestone floor has under-floor heating. There is a pantry and a separate utility boiler room. Doors lead to the side entrance and the rear yard.
 
On the first floor there are three large double bedrooms with outstanding southerly views. The master bedroom is double aspect with a modern en suite containing a walk-in shower. Bedroom 2 is a good size and double aspect with views over the surrounding countryside and Bedroom 3 is suitable as a smaller double. There is a central bathroom with modern white suite.

Outside - Attached to the house is a large stone barn with double doors to the east side and a similar opening on the west side. Subject to the necessary consents, this barn would be ideal for conversion to provide additional accommodation to the main house or perhaps an annexe. There is a large gated courtyard to the rear of the property.
 
To the front is a gravelled drive with parking and a turning area. Steps lead down from the house to the south facing paved patio area. The garden is mainly laid to level lawns with flower and shrubs borders, from which the stunning rural views are enjoyed. Leading on from the formal gardens is a further wild grass area which has been left as a meadow with mown pathways.

Services - Mains electricity, private water and drainage. Oil fired boiler. Broadband available.

Viewing - Strictly by appointment with the agents please. Stags Dulverton Office 01398 323174 or dulverton@stags.co.uk.
