This amazing newly converted barn is located on the outskirts of the popular village of Copplestone, in a very pleasant, small, semi-rural development of 10 properties (6 barn conversions and 4 new houses) adjoining open farmland and enjoying rural views to the south.
Internally the barn is truly stunning, and hugely spacious – in all to about 2,500 sq ft. The architecturally designed accommodation has been very thoughtfully planned with modern open plan family living in mind. Many of the original timbers have been retained and although they no longer form part of the actual structure they have been carefully preserved and provide much interest and character throughout the entire building. Central heating is provided by a mains gas boiler, with underfloor heating to the ground floor and conventional radiators to the first floor. Flooring is a mix of engineered solid oak, natural slate, and carpeting. All windows throughout are natural woodgrain effect uPVC, and gutters/downpipes are galvanised steel to ensure minimal maintenance.
Copplestone is a 5-minute drive west of Crediton on the A377, a main route into the City of Exeter. A stone’s throw to the southwest is Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its invigorating walks and sublime scenery. Previously a traditional farming hamlet, Copplestone has grown over the years, and now offers a fantastic selection of new-build, fully modern homes. This, coupled with its own primary school and locality to Queen Elizabeth’s Community College in Crediton, makes it perfect for families moving to Devon. The village has a strong camaraderie between residents, with a local church holding many events and in the local pub The Cross – where patrons chat by an open fire and enjoy fine ales. The pub gets its name from a 3m carved granite cross, found in the village centre, of Saxon origin and steeped in mythology. There is also a shop/post office for convenience, and regular transport links (bus and train) towards Exeter, North Devon and Okehampton.
