A recent and beautifully presented contemporary barn conversion in an unspoilt rural setting close to Exeter.
Thought to date back to the early to mid-Victorian period, The Cider Barnwas originally part of a collection of substantial former agricultural buildings arranged around a central yard. The farmhouse and adjacent barns now form a small community of five separate properties positioned amidst a patchwork of fields bounded mature hedging and broadleaf woodland.The barn is built of stone, mostly rendered, under a slate roof. The interior has been cleverly designed to make the best use of all the available space and has a south east/north west axis.Privacy between the properties has been carefully considered and optimised by walling and hedging and most of the windows in the barn face out across the garden and grounds to the rear. Internally the abundance of rooflights combined with a long galleried landing on the first floor and pale colour scheme provide a fabulous feeling of light and space.Its layout provides a centrally positioned entrance with a walk-through dining room and sitting room on one side and the superbly equipped kitchen, adjacent breakfast room and snug on the other. The sitting room has a charming inglenook fireplace fitted with a wood-burning stove and French windows opening to the terrace and garden, whilst the snug is the only room with dark-painted walls to provide a truly cosy atmosphere for relaxing over long winter evenings.The kitchen has a wide opening through to the adjacent breakfast room and both rooms have reclaimed wood flooring and are well-lit by natural light from plentiful roof lights. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units including a large central island, all under black granite surfaces, a bespoke kitchen wall, fitted with built in American style fridge/freezer, TV, Bose sound system and SMEG bean to cup coffee machine, a range of built-in electric appliances plus an oil-powered, two oven AGA.Upstairs off the first floor galleries landing are four bedrooms, three of which are fully fitted with bespoke bedroom furniture. Two of the bedrooms have en suite shower rooms including the principal, which is accessed by a second ash wood floating staircase. The other two bedrooms share the family bath and shower room with the large attic bedroom that currently serves as ahome office.GardenThe Cider Barn is approached off a quiet, no-through country lane via a shared gravel driveway that sweeps around to a tarmac parking area behind the barn that provides ample space for several cars. Beside it and built into the landscape is a double garage block that also incorporates a garden store and wood store.On the opposite side of the parking area and immediately adjacent to the house is a sheltered and paved terrace, which provides a lovely spot, with room for separate seating and dining areas, that is perfect for outside entertaining in fine weather. There is a recently installed exclusive own water supply system and bore hole. Garden adjacent to horse stables and field. Most of the garden extends out beyond the terrace and is designed for ease of maintenance with a long sweep of gently sloping lawn planted here and there with a variety of trees, including multiple fruit trees, with views out over unspoilt countryside beyond. On the south-east side of the barn is a further paved terrace area that enjoys sunshine from early afternoon to sunset, that is accessible from the sitting, dining and breakfast rooms and overlooks a communal lawn. Outside garden bed lighting and electric sockets. In all the grounds extend to about 1.2 acres.
