Four / five bedroom Grade II listed barn conversion set in about half an acre near Exeter, Devon
Grade II listed luxury barn conversion with a wealth of original features, set in about half an acre of grounds near Exeter, Devon, and with excellent road, rail and air links nearby
The Threshing Barn, Talaton, Exeter, EX5 2SA
With original beams, elm threshing floor and cider press, this extremely light and spacious conversion has been finished to the highest standard and provides an impressive 3800 square feet (350 m²) of internal space.
Built around 1700, it lies between Talaton centre and the hamlet of Fairmile. Talaton has an active village community with a really good pub, a shop/sub Post Office and a 15th century church. It is in the catchment area for the highly-regarded King’s School in Ottery St Mary and the ‘outstanding’ West Hill Primary School (Ofsted June 2007).
The Threshing Barn stands in about half an acre. It is one of an exclusive development of four barn conversions, the other three all now occupied. A private drive is shared by the four properties.
Bordering and overlooking the historic Escot Park, ‘1200 acres of stunning East Devon countryside’, the neighbouring countryside will never be built on.
Local communications - 20 minutes from Exeter’s vibrant new shopping centre, ten minutes from the M5 and Exeter Airport - and less to Feniton station for the Waterloo service. Ottery St Mary, Honiton and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Sidmouth have drive times of 6, 12 and 20 minutes respectively.
