Four bedroom barn conversion on eight acres of land in Burrington, near Umberleigh, Devon
Four bedroom architect designed barn conversion, near the town of Umberleigh in Devon, set on eight acres of land and with good transport links nearby
Stunningly converted rural barn set in approximately eight acres of land. The barn stands alone in wonderful open Devon landscape with woodland, rivers and rolling hills. Walks in the area provide breathtaking views and a real get away from it all feel.
The barn is 25 miles from junction 27 of the M5 and just two miles from the nearest village where all local amenities are offered. Less than 30 minutes away by car are the spectacular North Devon beaches of Saunton Sands and Croyde Bay along with the market towns of Barnstaple, South Molton and Exeter.
Local activities include an excellent golf course 10 minutes from the barn, a number of riding stables close by, rough and clay pheasant shooting and a wealth of wonderful rural pubs with home-cooked food and real ales recommendations can be provided!
The architect-designed barn has been furnished to an amazing standard. The accommodation is on two floors.
The entrance hallway is spacious and light with oakwood floor and a light well drawing light from the top floor of the building. There are four bedrooms, two with en-suite shower facilities (buckethead showers with side rainbars) and working open fireplaces. The family bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath and is imaginatively tiled by Fired Earth.
The living, dining and kitchen area are open plan, maximising the light and space. There is a working fireplace, the flooring is sisal and overhead oak beams complete the character of this fabulous area. The lime-washed wood kitchen has granite surfaces and all appliances built in, comprising modern oven with hob, dishwasher, freezer, and two fridges and it has been stylishly lit.
The building has underfloor heating, so is always warm and the design maximises light, giving a bright cheery feel. The barn is approximately 2,000sq feet in size.
Outside, the garden is mainly laid to grass, but there is fantastic scope to develop this plot and turn the land into an old-English meadow, or even keep some animals!
Water is drawn from the borehole on site and the heating is supplied by calor gas, again from onsite storage. Electricity comes from the mains.
This barn was developed and converted to an incredibly high specification in 2001. As a business investment, the barn yields a rental income in excess of £1,200 - £1,500 per week during high season and has always been in high demand as it is a wonderful place for families with children to relax or for couples or groups of friends to explore the wide range of activities Devon has to offer.
Difficult to do justice in print, this place needs viewing so you can experience how special it is.
