Set back from the road within a cobble stone courtyard, The Barn is a striking Grade II Listed barn conversion arranged over three levels which is in immaculate condition and centrally situated in the very popular village of Broadhempston.
On entering there is a useful porch area handy for hanging coats and storing shoes and boots which leads into the hallway. Immediately on the left is a door to the double aspect kitchen/breakfast room which has an excellent arrangement of floor and wall mounted cupboards with granite work surfaces, and integral appliances including a Siemens double oven and Neff convection hob. There is a waste disposal unit and space for a large fridge/freezer.
There is a large useful storage cupboard and WC with shower in the hall, and also off the hallway is a lovely light dining room. At the far end of the hall is a perfect home office which is currently set up with fitted workspaces for two having built in desks and storage.
Steps lead up to French windows leading out to the sun terrace and garden and to the left a useful utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and an airing cupboard, and to the right a fabulous dual aspect sitting room with vaulted ceiling with revealed A frames, a lovely Devon stone fireplace and with 2 French windows opening onto the terrace.
On the next floor there are three double bedrooms all with lovely vaulted ceilings with windows overlooking the courtyard, two with en-suite facilities and a family bathroom. The second bedroom also has the lovely feature of a small balcony and steps down to the front courtyard.
The generous rear walled garden has been well-maintained and has a large lawned area together with many mature shrubs. There is also a lovely patio area perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining onto which the French windows open. Steps and a path lead up to the large double garage at the rear, which has electric opening doors which provide access to the parking area.
