Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Old Stables is a stunning barn conversion which truly needs to be seen to appreciate the full impact of the high specification, the character features and the size and flexibility of the 4/5 bedroom accommodation.

Architecturally redesigned by the present owner, the attention to detail is second to none.

The galleried entrance hall is a double height, with a fully glazed front elevation, flooding in natural light, with the stairs leading up to the open plan kitchen/dining/living room, which has a real WOW factor, with exposed A frame beams, remote-controlled chandelier style lighting and a Wamsler multi-fuel burner. The kitchen area has reclaimed floorboards, beech front units, solid wooden work-surfaces and a central island featuring a granite work surface and a useful secondary sink, plus further storage. Kitchen appliances, including the range, the dishwasher, the fridge, the freezer and microwave are all included in the sale. This impressive, spacious room enjoys a triple aspect and an abundance of natural light.

On this side of the barn, there are 3 bedrooms, below the kitchen / living / dining room. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, and the main family bathroom services the two further bedrooms, with the second bedroom having a range of built-in oak wardrobes.

In the adjacent section of this unusual conversion, the accommodation features a utility room, with a secondary boiler, what is affectionately known as the Long Room, which could be a further bedroom or reception room if required, with a separate shower room situated off, but the main centrepiece is the glorious sitting room, with a double height vaulted ceiling, Jerusalem stone flooring with under floor heating and double oak doors opening onto the patio. Oak stairs, with glass balustrading, lead up from the gorgeous sitting room, to the double bedroom and galleried office area on the first floor, which has the potential to create an en-suite facility if required.

The barn could be split very easily, and has been designed with this in mind, to form a spacious annex or holiday let with potential income.

Although the transformation in the barn has been amazing, the beautiful and diverse gardens have also been started from scratch and are now one of the key selling points.

There is a lovely blend of uses, with the 2.2 acres of gardens and grounds featuring a productive kitchen garden, a mature area of planting, with hard and soft woods, including oak, walnut, birch and cedar, a pond with a central island and the large meadow could easily be adapted to a small paddock. There are numerous well-stocked flower beds, with flowering shrubs and perennials, and various sitting areas enjoying the sun at different parts of the day. The gardens do need to be seen to be fully appreciated.

The gravel drive leads past the barn towards an ample area of off-road parking and turning, and gives access to the traditional, triple carport, which has lighting, and attached to this is a custom-built workshop, with power and light. There are two useful garden sheds included within the sale.

The location, on the edge of the small village of Milton Damerel, is 5 miles from the market town of Holsworthy, which has an open-air market every Wednesday in the characterful town square, plus a primary and comprehensive school and a Waitrose supermarket. The village itself has a very well respected farm shop for day-to-day shopping, a petrol filling station, plus The Woodford Bridge Country Club. The neighbouring villages of Bradworthy and Bradford have County primary schools, and the busy bustling town of Bideford lies approximately 15 miles away, offering a wide range of facilities and a picturesque quay. From Bideford access is gained on to the North Devon Link Road, providing access to the M5, Bristol and beyond.

Bude, its sandy beaches and the rugged north Cornish coastline lie 15 miles distant and this central location provides easy access to Dartmoor, Bodmin Moor, the coast and North Devon.

A viewing is highly recommended at the Old Stables, where quality and care are the benchmark of the present owners.
