Situation - The property is situated adjacent to Beer Farm, a small residential hamlet incorporating the original farmhouse and adjacent cottages. Situated just outside the Dartmoor National Park, the property enjoys an attractive rural aspect. Dartmoor offers hundreds of square miles of superb unspoilt scenery with many opportunities for riding, walking and outdoor pursuits. The nearby town of Okehampton offers an excellent range of shops and services, including three supermarkets, locally and nationally owned shops and businesses.

Description - The property comprises a large detached traditional barn of stone construction with part brick, cob and concrete block beneath a recently renewed slate roof. Planning Consent Number 00841 / 2014 was granted in October 2014. The planning allows for the conversion of the barn into a spacious dwelling with approximately 2500sqft of accommodation. The proposed accommodation would incorporate five bedrooms and three reception rooms, as well as an attached garage. There is space for areas of garden around the barn, beyond which lies an area of pasture paddock, the whole being in the region of 4.4 Acres. The property is accessed over shared driveway, the ownership of which will be included within the sale of the barn, subject to rights of access by the other properties within the hamlet. It should be noted that the vendors have carried out some works within recent years, which has included the replacement and felting of the roof, as well as repairs to the walls internally and externally. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a detached barn with potential to create a delightful rural home with a useful amount of land.

Services - Mains Water Connected. Mains Electricity Not Connected, although there is a transformer approximately 100 metres from the property. A new private drainage system would need to be installed.

Additional Land And Farm Building Available - A large ATCOST BUILDING of approximately 2500 sqft is available by separate negotiation.

It would be ideal for a variety of uses including conversion to stabling, garaging or storage, subject to any necessary consents. In addition, a further adjoining area of land of approximately 12 acres is also available by separate negotiation and incorporates areas of pasture, marsh and a sizeable lake, ideal for fishing or as a delightful natural habitat. The land has a separate access track.
