A BEAUTIFULLY Appointed Three Bedroomed Attached BARN CONVERSION with Eleantly LANDSCAPED GARDEN In Excess of 0.3 acres with Secure PRIVATE PARKING and DOUBLE DETACHED GARAGE. RURAL but not Isolated. Super Views over Surrounding Countryside.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION The hamlet of Allerford is situated in the heart of the beautifully peaceful and unspoilt rolling farmland of West Devon, and is half a mile from Portgate and the old A30. The nearest villages are Chillaton, Lifton and Lewdown. All enjoy typical Devon hostelries and shops. Lifton has an excellent primary school. There are two well-known hotels with restaurants in the area; Lewtrenchard Manor and Arundell Arms at Lifton. The nearby market towns of Launceston, Tavistock and Okehampton provide good facilities and the A30 dual carriageway is easily accessible, providing a fast road link to Exeter and the M5.

This development of barn conversions has been created from an historic courtyard of traditional stone farm buildings with natural slate roofs. The Granary has been individually and creatively designed for practical and spacious living whilst retaining many features of character. The accommodation boasts traditional craftsmanship to exacting standards combined with modern technology. The property is beautifully presented and enjoys underfloor heating throughout via LPG. Further benefits include hardwood and tiled floor coverings, a wooden staircase with stainless steel spindle balustrade and the property is fully alarmed and also wired for home cinema.
