There are many reasons why prospective buyers look for homes with additional accommodation.
Whether you want to have extended family living nearby but not actually within your space, or if you wish to run a guest house business from home…..extra rooms or structures can be just what you are looking for.
Here are five of some of the best houses with additional accommodation on the market at the moment within the glorious backdrop of Devon.
This stunning statement property features not only an annex to the main house within the Cider Barn, but three large holiday home barn conversions that offer another eight additional bed spaces.
A real potential for a thriving holiday let business. This Grade II listed stone built manor house is nestled on the edge of Dartmoor National Park in the south of the county and affords glorious countryside views while maintaining excellent transport links via the A38 which join the M5.
The main house offers 5/6 bedrooms in this stunning Grade II thatched former farmhouse, but the accommodation does not stop there. Also within the boundaries you will find a three bedroom cottage and a large barn which is used as a games room, but has the scope perhaps as a studio flat for the ever-growing teenagers.
This would make the perfect equestrian retreat as there are also stables, paddocks and a swimming pool for unwinding after a country hack.
If you dream of being able to see the sea from your home, then The Small House – which is anything but – could be the home for you. Boasting a generous four bedrooms in the main house.
There is also a self-contained one bedroom annex which has a sauna and uber wet room. This has already been successfully operating as a holiday let so the new owners could carry on with little hassle. The pretty garden has a welcoming summer house, and sandy beaches are just a short drive away.
This time we venture to the other national park in Devon and the wonders of Exmoor. In a tranquil and secluded location we find Rockley House which features four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Again this property has a cottage within the grounds. This pretty barn conversion has two bedrooms making it perfect for those wanting to escape the world for a holiday.
The ample gardens make for a relaxing space and the stone barn, linhay and paddocks mean this home could also lend itself to those with designs on keeping a horse.
It is not hard to see why so many people fall for the rugged charms of the moors.
This exceptional property is already running as a successful B&B with the central house having been split into seven guest rooms and a private owners accommodation. You will find a one bed self-contained apartment for those wanting a more detached holiday.
With stabling, outbuilding and approx. 3 acres this is another wow factor property with masses of space.
