Close to the beach, substantial detached home with large gardens, double garage and lovely views


From Totnes, take the A381 towards Kingsbridge for about 6 miles, passing the BP Garage on your left at Totnes Cross. About 1 mile beyond the garage, fork left towards Slapton and East Allington and continue along 'Five Mile Lane'. Before reaching the village of Slapton, turn left to Gara Mill, then first right. Continue for a short distance down the lane and Lower Merrifield Barn will be found further along on the right.


A short way inland from the 3 mile long beach at Slapton Sands and situated in a stunning rural setting along a no through lane, is Lower Merrifield Barn. The nearby village of Slapton offers a bustling community and has the benefit of a village shop, two public houses, and a church. The National Nature Reserve at Slapton Ley, a Site of Special Scientific Interest is located on the edge of the village and is the largest freshwater lake in the south west of England. The SW coast path is easily accessible and takes in some of the most spectacular scenery the region has to offer. The nearby town of Kingsbridge is a busy and popular market town, which offers a diverse range of amenities and is home to Kingsbridge Community College (KCC), an 'outstanding' secondary school. A note of interest, there is a collection point for the Kingsbridge school bus at the top of lane.

Lower Merrifield Barn is not a conversion, but was in fact a brand new build in 2012. The contemporary design with its exceptional
stonework, solid oak doors, stairs, roof trusses and other finishes with quality detailing, offers versatile accommodation with ground level entry on both floors. The ground floor offers a spacious entrance hall, cloakroom and an impressive split level reception room, comprising kitchen, dining room and living room. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with hand crafted units, granite
work surfaces, a large gas cooking range and additional integral appliances and is open plan to the dining room. Three steps descend to the living room which boasts a woodburner, high vaulted ceiling with three quarter floor to ceiling windows at the far end capturing the glorious views. A bespoke oak staircase descends to the lower ground floor which in turn leads to the
courtyard terrace and gardens beyond. The four double en suite bedrooms are situated on this level, in addition to the garden room, cloakroom, utility room, store room and boiler/boot room.

Lower Merrifield Barn is approached along a quiet no through lane with two gated driveways. The higher drive offers ample parking and access to the workshop which offers over 330 sq ft of space. The lower driveway is approached through double 5 bar gates and leads to a circular drive with additional parking and a detached pitch and tiled double garage. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with established shrub beds and a rockery, all
beautifully presented. Beyond the garden is a small fenced area of amenity land within which is 16 solar panels. From the garden, a five bar gate leads to an adjacent paddock area which houses the ground source heat system. Additional land is available by separate negotiation.

Square Footage: 2,636 sq ft
