Situation - Wheel Barton is located within the centre of this popular village, lying just behind the parish church. Broadwoodkelly is surrounded by delightful Devonshire countryside and has a strong community spirit, centred around the village hall. There is easy access to the large community of Winkleigh which offeres facilities including village store, post office, butcher, garage, primary school and public houses. Okehampton is within easy reach and is situated on the northern fringes of the Dartmoor National Park. The town has a comprehensive range of shops and services, three supermarkets including a Waitrose, modern hospital and leisure centre. The Dartmoor National Park is famed for its hundreds of square miles of superb unspoilt scenery with many opportunities for riding, walking and outdoor pursuits. From the town, there is direct access to the A30 dual carriageway, providing a link to the M5 motorway and the main shopping centre of Exeter with its airport and rail connections. From Broadwoodkelly there are many opportunities for walking and riding in the surrounding countryside and comparatively easy access to the North and South Coasts.

Description - Wheel Barton is a most appealing detached residence and is understood to be the original Barton Farmhouse with 14th century origins, and having the characteristics of the original through passage of a typical Devonshire longhouse plan. We believe the main barton farmhouse was likely to have been attached to the church with ecclesiastical connections and would have been the main residence and hence the original name of the Barton. The property was understood at one time, around 1790 to have been the main Wheelwrights premises for the area and the rear detached stone and tiled boiler house and garden room is understood to have been the former Smithy. In the past the property has been divided, creating a two family residence, having the benefit of two staircases and separate entrances if so required. Alternatively subject to the necessary consents, the property could be used for bed and breakfast. The property is presented in good order throughout and boasts modern day comforts including two en suites and oil fired central heating, yet many period features remain include heavily beamed ceilings, panelled doors and an inglenook fireplace to the main sitting room. There are delightful Old English style gardens to both the south and northern sides of the residence, off road parking and two garages.
