Lower Wizaller Barn is set in about two and a half acres complete with wildlife pond and is a large converted stone built L-shaped barn with reverse level living. The main rooms open to roof height giving a wonderful feeling of space. There is a further three bedroom stone barn as an annexe and other outbuildings include a stable block, stone built piggery and a timber garage block with studio above.

The property is in a rural location within the boundaries of the parish of Aveton Gifford which lies on the western bank of the River Avon, deep in the South Hams in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is probably best known for its 15th Century bridge which was built to replace the ancient ford. The village amenities include a public house with a restaurant, church, nursery/primary school, village shop and it is on the bus route. The village also has a tennis club, cricket club, children's playground and a large green.

Being in the parish of Aveton Gifford the property falls within the catchment area of the extremely well regarded Kingsbridge Community College.

The Georgian town of Modbury, with an interesting variety of shops, is to the north and Kingsbridge, which has a more comprehensive shopping centre, is to the south. To the east lies the Avon River and Estuary which is renowned for its abundance of wild fowl. Local residents can moor their boats in the Avon as it is navigable downstream to Bantham and out to sea, tide permitting. The nearest sandy beaches are Bigbury on Sea, Bantham and Burgh Island, surrounded by outstanding scenery and cliff tops of the South Hams coastline, much of which is now owned by the National Trust. Also nearby are the sailing centres based at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, as well as 18 hole golf courses at Bigbury and Thurlestone. Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the north and provides a backdrop to the area which must surely rank as one of the most beautiful in the country.

From the drive a pathway leads up to the front door. The remainder of the front garden is laid to lawn with attractive shrub borders. To one side of the house is a small outbuilding housing the pump and filtration unit for the water which feeds to the two properties. Gravelled area with concrete hardstanding for hot tub.
