An INCREASINGLY RARE OPPORTUNITY to CONVERT TWO HISTORICAL TRADITIONAL BARNS (not Listed) into TWO DWELLINGS with CAPTIVATING FAR REACHING VIEWS of Dartmoor to the rear with LAND. Set on the edge of a small, peaceful rural hamlet just outside Okehampton and adjoining farmland the range of barns had planning consent granted in January 2018 to be converted into a two bedroom and larger three bedroom home with associated parking and gardens to benefit from the views. The whole site area is approximately 2.8 acres. Set just on the edge of the small farm hamlet of Chichacott to the North of Okehampton, the barns are reached by minor country roads giving easy access to the town, the A30 dual carriageway and Dartmoor National Park.


LOCATION:  
Okehampton offers high street shopping, supermarkets including Waitrose, health centre, leisure centre, a range of pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as a large primary school and the well regarded Okehampton College.
