The house is approached via a shared private driveway leading to a paved courtyard to the front of the house. A neighbouring property purely possesses a right of way over the initial segment of The Great Barn's driveway to their single garage. A further driveway (which is solely used by the owners of The Great Barn) leads via a five bar gate, to the rear of the property, garaging, parking and paddock.
Completed about fifteen years ago, The Great Barn is a beautifully converted and luxuriously appointed former barn, offering light and spacious accommodation for the discerning purchaser. Presenting rendered and colour washed elevations under a slate roof, the property benefits from timber framed double glazed windows and oil fired central heating.
Many exposed timbers from the former barn have been integrated into the interior design. The Kitchen / Breakfast Room, Hall and Utility Room benefit from natural slate flooring and all the doors on the ground floor are solid oak with door and window furniture in traditional black wrought work style.
The superb Kitchen Breakfast room is very well fitted with a comprehensive range of floor and wall units under solid beech worktops, as well as a centre island. There is plenty of space for a table. It also boasts an oil fired Esse double oven range cooker and butler sink.
Both the spacious living room and fourth bedroom have fireplaces fitted with electric wood effect stoves. The living room has French doors to the patio, whilst the highly versatile bedroom 4 has the potential to possess an en-suite due to their being plumbing directly above or could easily be utilised as a reception room.
Finishing the ground floor accommodation is a useful Utility room and cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin.
The first floor boasts three double bedrooms all with stunning countryside views. The bath and shower rooms are particularly well appointed featuring back to wall WC's and wash hand basins inset to vanity units with cupboards under.
The master bedroom benefits from a dressing room featuring a good range of built in wardrobes, extending into under eaves storage.
The gardens have been beautifully landscaped and now form a perfect backdrop to the house and blend with surrounding countryside. The large paved patio area is a wonderful place to enjoy the afternoon sun and the stunning views across the North Devon countryside. The patio borders a generous lawn with attractive flower beds.
Beyond the garden you will find the paddock of approximately 1.4 acres bordered by post and rail fencing mature hedgerows.
The property benefits from a double carport, with a garden shed to one end which could be used as a workshop. This attractive building is of hardwood construction under a slate roof.
The double carport sits on a large concrete pad and is considered to be an ideal place for the erection of stables. Lapsed planning permission for stables exists for this area.
From our office leave The Square via East Street and stay on this road until you reach Bish Mill. At Bish Mill turn right up the hill signed Rackenford/Bishops Nympton and on reaching the top of the hill take the right turning signed Bishops Nympton. On entering the village follow the road down the hill for approximately 100 yards where "The Great Barn" will be found on your left hand side.
