A superb four bedroom country home in an outstanding rural location with gardens and paddocks that we believe are approaching three acres. Constructed with part brick, local stone and colour washed rendered elevations under a slate roof, the property has the usual benefits of uPVC double glazing, oil fired central heating and a wealth of stripped pine joinery throughout.
Originally constructed we believe as a mid 19th century barn, the property has been comprehensively extended and improved by the vendors and now offers superb split level accommodation, with the ground floor providing four bedrooms, master en-suite and family bathroom, with the first floor benefitting from a range of outstanding panoramic views over the hills and countryside surrounding Colyton, with living room, dining hall, kitchen, conservatory and cloakroom. The gardens and paddocks surround the property. There are a number of outbuildings including two sets of loose boxes and an attached garage/workshop.
