    10.6 Acre Plot inc. Pony Paddocks & Woodland! This detached barn conversion was finished in late 2017 & offers a wonderful rural position, facing south & overlooking its own garden & land with a detached outbuilding with stables & farm offices above. NO ONWARD CHAIN

    Barn Orchard is a detached converted 17th century cob threshing barn with a large ground floor extension added before being completed in late 2017. It is found in a wonderful rural position, facing South-South-East while overlooking its own gardens and land beyond. It has a feeling of being completely on its own, but with the peace of mind that you have two nearby farmhouses and the convenience of Copplestone Primary school just 1 mile away with many other village amenities & transport links just beyond.

    The property has been sympathetically restored with special care taken to retain as many original features as possible, including keeping both of the threshing barn openings and windows above. The accommodation extends to 194sqm / 2118sqft, with the owners aim to create large open spaces. The flooring used throughout the original barn section is all reclaimed seasoned oak. There are three double bedrooms, two upstairs (both with vaulted ceilings) & one on the ground floor (bedroom 3 currently being used as a music room & study). The master bedroom includes a fine en-suite shower room complete with electric underfloor heating, a double shower with twin-heads, heated towel rail, WC & a sink on a granite top, plus a heated mirror. The 2nd bedroom’s en-suite is the same but with a Mira shower instead – both have built in wardrobes.

    The ground floor has a particularly spectacular triple aspect open-plan kitchen, dining & living/family room which has limestone flooring with underfloor heating via the central heating boiler and alone stretches to 12.3m/40ft! The southern, largely glazed wall is made up of massive (6m) bi-folding doors with beautiful rural views beyond; there is also an oil-fired Aga & a gas range-style cooker included in the sale, plus an integrated dishwasher. The sitting room is in the original cob part of the building, which is another large room and has a spherical wood-burning stove. Adjoining the ground floor bedroom is a handy utility room with a further sink, plumbing for white goods & the Worcester LPG combi-boiler, with a ground floor white suite bathroom with shower over the bath completing the downstairs. The owner advises that there is internet/WiFi in every room and she has found it incredibly low cost to heat as every effort was made to retain the warmth created & captured from the sun.

    OUTSIDE: The limestone flooring from the inside continues out onto a sun terrace with the rural backdrop beyond. There is a rose garden and then steps down to a largely level grassed garden. Beyond this is the first pony paddock with the two main fields and woodland, which is regularly inhabited by deer, beyond. The initial lane from Bewsley Hill is shared, once it splits (turning right) this lane to the gated driveway (providing masses of parking) belongs to Barn Orchard. The plot extends to 10.6 acre in total.

    OUTBUILDING: Adjacent to the main home is a timber clad outbuilding. To the front are two stables (both approx. 4m x 4m), a tack room (4.3m x 2.14m) with light, power, sink & plumbing for a washing machine and a store. Above has been converted into two large farm offices, with its own access, a kitchenette & a shower room. To the rear are open-fronted carports, some with storage/sheds which could be removed if required for more vehicles to be kept under cover. It may be possible to obtain permission for the farm offices to become ancillary/holiday accommodation.

    Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

    DIRECTIONS: From Copplestone take the Bewsley Hill turning, passing the primary school on your left, proceed up the hill and the lane will be found on your left (marked by a Helmores board), just BEFORE Elston Cross.

    COPPLESTONE is a 5-minute drive west of Crediton on the A377, a main route into the City of Exeter. A stone’s throw to the southwest is Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its invigorating walks and sublime scenery. Previously a traditional farming hamlet, Copplestone has grown over the years, and now offers a fantastic selection of new-build, fully modern homes. This, coupled with its own primary school and locality to Queen Elizabeth’s Community College in Crediton, makes it perfect for families moving to Devon. The village has a strong camaraderie between residents, with a local church holding many events. There is a 3m carved granite cross, found in the village centre of Saxon origin and steeped in mythology. There is also a shop/post office for convenience, and regular transport links (bus and train) towards Exeter, North Devon and Okehampton.
