Town living farm barns - EX20 3RX

This is a great opportunity to acquire this courtyard of barns with the benefit of detailed planning permission (ref. 3342/16/ful) for conversion to create three dwellings. It is situated centrally within this popular West Devon village, yet tucked away off Blenheim Lane and a short distance from the church, the primary school and the village pub. It is situated within the Exbourne Conservation Area and the barns are Grade II Listed.

The barns are proposed to be accessed via the courtyard to the front (north) off Blenheim Lane, with three parking spaces within the courtyard and three additional parking spaces provided to the north east on the sellers adjacent land with a footpath link from the courtyard to the parking area. The three barns are in an "L" shape terrace wrapped around the south of the courtyard and attached to the sellers existing house to the east. Each property is proposed to have a private garden area to the south.

The proposed approximate gross internal floor areas of the properties are:

Unit 1 - 99m2 (1,065sqft)
Unit 2 - 132m2 (1,420sqft) approx. 12m x 5.5m internal on plans
Unit 3 - 92m2 (990sqft) approx. 8.2m x 5.6m internal on plans

Please note that these measurements are only approximate as they have been scaled from the proposed plans and should be checked and confirmed on site.

The stereotypical Devon village of Exbourne is a popular location for those seeking a quiet and rural location. Within the village there is a public house, church, primary school and pre-school, village hall, award winning community shop and post office and a garage. There is also a regular bus service to Exeter via Crediton, or to Okehampton. Whilst the nearby market towns of North Tawton and Okehampton offer a much wider range of facilities and amenities.

Within Okehampton, which lies approximately 4 miles to the south, there is primary and secondary educational facilities as well as numerous local and national shops including a Waitrose supermarket and a Victorian shopping arcade. From Okehampton there is also excellent access to the Dartmoor National Park and the A30 dual carriageway to both Cornwall to the South West and to Exeter which offers speedy access to the Cathedral City, Exeter Airport, the M5 and beyond.
