Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Barton Farm is a very spacious detached converted barn situated in a central and convenient, yet tucked away position in the heart of the popular working village of West Down. The property was converted from a former barn by the present owner 37 years ago and provides comfortable family accommodation arranged over two floors set in large and level, private gardens of just under 0.2 acres with the garden being nearly 100ft long. The property is on the market for the very first time.

West Down is a small working North Devon village situated between the coastal town of Ilfracombe and the village of Braunton; both being just over 4 miles away. The coast is within easy reach with Woolacombe, famed for its Blue Flag award winning golden sand surfing beaches, currently recognised as the number 1 beach in the UK by Trip Advisor, also being approximately 5 miles away. The village has an excellent Primary School which continues to receive the 'Outstanding' rating from Ofsted; the school is just 200 metres away! Other village amenities include a community shop, allotments and a playing field, a public house serving food, church and village hall which sees regular visits during the from the Post Office. Barnstaple, which North Devon's main trading centre, is approximately 10 miles away and has many of the big name shops and supermarkets, a rail link to Exeter which has direct routes into the main stations in London and direct access onto the main A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at junction 27.

At the front of the property there is a large, covered entrance porch which opens into the spacious and wide entrance hall which has the stairs to the first floor and all of the principal ground floor rooms leading off. The superb lounge is a very generous 22ft x 18ft room and has double doors leading out onto a patio within the garden. There is a wood burner set in an imposing stone built fireplace which provides a focal point to room with added character coming from a beamed ceiling. Across the hallway is a separate dining room, again with a beamed ceiling.

The 'engine room' of the home is the large 16ft x 16ft kitchen/family room which has a range of fitted base and wall units and a four oven gas fired Aga which is used for cooking. The room has stripped wooden floorboards, a beamed ceiling and double doors open onto the garden. The rear lobby has a door out to the side of the house. Leading off the lobby is a useful cloakroom/wc as well as a utility room which has fitted base and wall units and plumbing for an automatic washing machine and houses the gas fired boiler for the central heating and hot water.

Back out in the main hallway, there is a further ground floor cloakroom/wc leading off.

Moving to the first floor, there is a 40ft long rear landing which gives access to all of the remaining rooms. There is a large airing cupboard and a separate useful store cupboard. The master bedroom is a spacious double room with two built in wardrobes and its own en suite bathroom which includes a bath and separate shower cubicle. All of the additional three bedrooms are generously proportioned and all have built in wardrobes. The family bathroom comprises a white suite which includes a bath, separate walk in shower cubicle, a low level wc and a hand basin. There is also a study/office providing an ideal working area or home for the computer.

Outside, there is access over a neighbouring driveway at the front of the property into the garden area. There is an off road parking space immediately adjacent to the garden. A separate lane at the rear of the house leads down to the garage/workshop for Barton Farm and an additional parking space.

The garden is a particularly attractive feature of the home and is level and surprisingly private bearing in mind the central location. A gravelled pathway leads from the parking area under an attractive pergola with climbing wisteria, clematis and honeysuckle and leads to the front door. There are two large paved patio areas to either side immediately abutting the house and one leading from kitchen/family room and the other from the lounge. The patios are ideal for 'al fresco' dining, barbecues or sun bathing and surrounding these areas are an abundance of flowering trees, shrubs and bushes.

The remainder of the garden is laid primarily to lawn and stretches away from the house and interspersed and bordered by mature trees, bushes, shrubs and plants. There is a large garden pond and an adjacent summer house and a useful wooden store shed. The garden enjoys plenty of the daytime and evening sunlight and measures very nearly 100ft in length.

Barton Farm is a spacious family home in this popular and sought after village and we fully advise an early internal inspection.
Applicants are advised to proceed from our offices in a westerly direction heading out of town on the main A361 sign posted Barnstaple. Proceed straight across the Mullacott roundabout and continue along this road for approximately one and a half miles turning left at Dean's Cross sign posted West Down. Follow the road to the T Junction and turn right towards the village centre. Upon reaching the village square bear left passing the Crown Inn and continue along the road for a further 100 yards or so where the entrance to Barton Farm will be found on right hand side, just after 'Church Cottage'.
