SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Occupying a peaceful rural but not isolated position and enjoying superb far-ranging views over the surrounding countryside and along the Lyd Valley towards Dartmoor in the distance.



One of five barn conversions of varying shapes and sizes, converted in approximately 2004 to a particularly high standard. Great effort was taken to retain the integrity of the original structure: with repointed stonework, timber framed windows, deep slate window sills, vaulted ceilings with exposed A-frames, beams and purlins.



The interior is presented to a high standard and is tastefully decorated and furnished throughout. The principal rooms are designed to take full advantage of the super views over the garden, to the Lyd Valley and Dartmoor beyond.
