Full description

A charming thatched 3-bed holiday cottage with large grounds, fishing rights and paddock. Parking. Level garden. Overall 4.8 acres. EPC Band D.

Situation - The Old Barn is situated in a wonderful rural location on the edge of the popular village of Dunsford, just within the Dartmoor National Park and yet is only 7 miles from Exeter. The village has a popular pub, post office/village shop and primary school.

Description - The Old Barn is a detached property which was converted, it is believed, from a traditional farm building and is of solid elevations (part stone) beneath a thatched roof.

The planning consent (Ref: 0604/10) states that the dwelling is to be used for "short let holiday accommodation and shall not at any time be used, let, sold or otherwise occupied as a separate dwelling". A copy is available from the agents.
The property enjoys a delightful location set well back from the road, and its outlook is across the optionally available field, and across to Steps Bridge and the National Trust owned woodland surrounding the valley.

Accommodation - The door on the front of the property leads in to the open-plan LIVING ROOM / KITCHEN which has a wooden floor, brick plinth for potential wood burner, exposed ceiling timbers and a pair of oak ledge-and-brace doors to a large storage cupboard. At the kitchen end is a Redfyre oil-fired range cooker for cooking, domestic hot water and central heating. Granite worktops with sink and cupboards below. Of further note on the ground floor is a cloakroom with wc.

The first floor is approached via a spiral staircase to a landing with a DOUBLE BEDROOM with walk-in wardrobe and TWO SINGLE BEDROOMS. BATHROOM with free-standing slipper bath, wc and wash basin.

Outside - The property is approached through a gateway to a chipping drive which leads to the front of the property with plenty of parking. There is a paved patio area to the front of the cottage enjoying wonderful views across the garden, land and beyond to the woodland in the distance. The garden is mainly laid to grass though with a newly planted hedgebank and fence separating it from an area of agricultural land that goes with the property being a grass paddock, overall about 4.8 acres.

Land - Adjoining the property is a level agricultural field of 4 acres enjoying extensive road frontage with separate gate. There is an enclosure within which is a fully enclosed timber agricultural building. The property benefits from holding the fishing rights along its stretch of land. The River Teign is renowned for its excellent fishing for Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon.

Services - Metered mains water, mains electricity, private drainage. Oil-fired central heating.

Directions - From Exeter proceed on the B3212 towards Moretonhampstead. Continue through Longdown towards the village of Dunsford. At the bottom of the hill before entering the village, ignore the left turn signposted Christow, carry on over a small humpback bridge and 100 yards after a green wooden building on the right, the entrance drive to The Old Barn is on the left.
