This beautifully appointed four bedroomed barn conversion is situated within a quiet, rural hamlet and boasts superb views over the surrounding countryside. Private and secluded garden, private driveway parking for two vehicles plus a separate garage. Available with no onward chain

The hamlet of Allerford is situated in the heart of the beautiful, 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. 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 a wider array of shopping, leisure, and educational 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. Home Barn is the largest in the complex and boasts immaculately presented living accommodation arranged over two floors, with all modern creature comforts combined with attractive rustic features such as the original exposed roof beams and purlins.

The heart of this home is undoubtedly the large, open plan kitchen/dining room which leads on to a generous sitting room with French doors to the garden. Also on the ground floor is a further reception room, currently used as a study, and shower room. This area has its own hallway and external entrance door and could easily be used as an annexe for a dependent relative or independent teenager.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, three doubles and a single room which could be used as a dressing room, if required. The master bedroom has private ensuite facilities and there is a separate family sized bathroom off the landing. The rooms are light, airy and enjoy super views over the garden to the beautiful Devon countryside beyond.

The barn is fully double glazed and centrally heated via a modern LPG boiler and underfloor heating throughout.

The private and sheltered garden wraps around the barn. It is level and mostly laid to lawn with a raised paved, south facing sun terrace, accessed internally off the sitting room, and provides the perfect spot to enjoy outdoor eating and entertaining. The garden is fully curtailed with timber fencing and is secure for children and pets.

To the front of the barn, there is a gravelled private drive providing sufficient parking for two vehicles. A timber gate yields to a path at the side of the barn. Easily accessed via a gate from the garden, there is a much larger than average single garage located in a separate block with a separate designated area for Visitors' Parking.
