Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Just outside the village of Brayford this highly individual detached barn conversion was built 13 years ago and it stands in its own 5 ACRE estate with a delightful walkway which links the garden and large pond with the woodland, paddock and linhay which enjoy elevated rural views.

Built to a very contemporary design the conversion affords generous and adaptable accommodation with a large LIVING ROOM opening onto a separate SITTING ROOM with a slate floor and wood burning stove, a luxury farmhouse KITCHEN, with an integrated fridge and dishwasher, a UTILITY ROOM, a very useful OFFICE/PLAYROOM with a door to a SEPARATE WC and wash room with a built in Belfast sink and door to the outside. Also on the ground floor there is a LARGE BEDROOM and ENSUITE. On the first floor there are 4 BEDROOMS, a BATHROOM and a newly refitted high quality SHOWER ROOM.

With double glazing and under floor oil fired central heating the accommodation has a number of quality features including oak internal doors, oak and tiled floors, built in bedroom furniture, low voltage lighting, an oak and glazed screen in the kitchen, an intruder alarm system and separate fire sprinkler system, a built in central vacuum system and 2 staircases including a feature circular staircase.

OUTSIDE the barn is approached over a brick paved drive which leads to an extensive parking area and DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE with a separate access to a loft over. In addition to the garage there is a LARGE WORKSHOP.

The grounds are a real feature and form a mini-estate, with a meandering walkway through the different areas including the level garden and large pond with a monolith of Bray valley stone. The path climbs to an area of woodland and a sloping 2 ACRE PADDOCK with a refurbished LINHAY which could easily provide a pony stable and store. The owners have also sited a number of seating areas at strategic vantage points and they include a thatched Gazebo (requires rethatching).

In an easily accessible location this impressive home would make an exceptional family home and there is potential (subject to planning) to convert the garage block into a work space or annexe.


Situated in the historic Bray Valley with its links to the production of iron ore dating back to the Romans and Celts, the conversion is positioned just outside the village of Brayford with amenities which include a primary school, church and village hall.

The property is also well placed for access to the regional centre of Barnstaple (9 miles), the busy market town of South Molton (7 miles) and the North Devon link road (A361 - 5 miles) which provides a quick route to Tiverton (18 miles), the M5 and National rail links. Within easy reach of the well known West Buckland public school, set on the fringes of Exmoor National Park and within easy driving distance of the rugged North Devon coast, the area offers a complete range of outdoor pursuits including walking, horse riding, cycling, golf at Saunton, Libbaton and High Bullen, and fishing on the Mole and Taw.
From our office leave the square via Barnstaple Street and stay on this road until it meets the A361 at Aller Cross. At this roundabout go straight over and take the exit marked Brayford and Blackmoor Gate. Stay on this road for approximately 5 miles and just before reaching the village of Brayford, the entrance to Bray Vale will be seen on the left.
