This charming semi-detached barn is located in the hamlet of Goodstone on the outskirts of the highly sought after village of Bickington. Goodstone was previously a farming community and most of the dwellings are former farmhouses and converted barns. The Roundhouse was converted in the early 90's and offers versatile and spacious living accommodation which is very deceptive from the front. The property is arranged over three levels. On the entrance level is a generous modern fitted kitchen / dining room, separate utility room, cloakroom and further storage. To the lower ground floor there is a spacious sitting room with double doors leading onto the south facing garden, a study / bedroom four which opens into a conservatory enjoying the full vista of the sunny garden and a further kitchenette area which could become an en-suite bathroom for the fourth bedroom. On the second floor there are three double bedrooms, one with en-suite and a family bathroom. The property has many original features including the roundhouse and exposed limestone walling, but a particular feature is the generous garden to the rear which has been landscaped by the current owners and is laid out in different areas with many original features which have to be seen to be fully appreciated. The gardens are ideal for families and keen gardeners with many evergreens, mature shrubs, surrounding flower borders, greenhouse and vegetable plots. The Roundhouse has the benefit of sealed unit double glazing throughout, oil fired central heating and offers very easy access to the Devon Expressway for the cities of Plymouth and Exeter and is only a ten minute drive to the sought after market town of Newton Abbot. The property is in the school catchment area for both Blackpool and South Dartmoor which are both highly regarded educational centres. This property would suit a family or retirement home and viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Outside The property is entered between granite pillars onto a level drive alongside which is the roundhouse currently used for parking two cars under cover. This contains the original substantial beam which held the engine which a horse would have turned to drive activities in the barn in the Victorian era. It is a significant feature of the property which gives it its name, is open to the rafters, provides efficient and tidy space for bins and gas bottles and a cupboard for housing the oil fired boiler with power and light. A delightful stream runs along the front of the roundhouse. A further area outside locates the oil tank, nicely screened by vegetation. Also alongside the forecourt is access to the rear garden through three barn rooms.
Outside To the rear the sunny garden is a particular feature of this property and has maximum measurements of approximately 30m x 20m. The gardens have been landscaped by the owners and are well laid out. The main garden area directly behind the property is a paved patio adjoining a lawn area with surrounding flower borders with a host of mature shrubs and plants. This then leads to a walled garden predominately laid to lawn with a host of mature shrubs, plants and evergreens with granite features These gardens truly have to be seen to be fully appreciated and are fully enclosed with limestone walls being safe for children and animals. From the patio there is a barn door leading to the three barn rooms mentioned. Here we find a garden room with sink and water, a large workshop and storage area with steps up to a room for fridges and freezers and access to the forecourt at the front of the property with power and lighting throughout.
