Unusually for a barn conversion in the area, the rooms are generously proportioned and all four bedrooms are doubles. The kitchen is big enough for the family dining table, whilst the dining room is separate for larger social occasions. A study/playroom adjoins with the downstairs toilet nearby. The sitting room, with windows to the south east and south west features a French door giving access to the garage and patio. Besides the family bathroom, there is an ensuite bathroom with private access from either of two bedrooms. Each bathroom is fitted with a bath, basin, bidet and thermostatic mains-pressure shower. Unusual too is the mains gas supply in this rural location. The vendors have advised that the the total gas, electricity and water costs are amply covered by the feed-in tariff income from the solar panels which are owned by the vendors and included in the sale. The vendors have also advised that the income is Government-guaranteed and index-linked until 2036.
Outside there is a gravel area for parking, a generously sized double garage, an extensive patio of natural stone and a lawned garden. Leading on from the garden is a circa 2 acre pony paddock, sloping gently south towards Buckland Abbey estate and the Tavy valley. Open moorland is just a mile away offering endless scope for walking and riding. The garden is simply grass surrounded by many mature trees but offers great horticultural potential for those so-minded. The internationally renowned Garden House is less than a mile away, enjoying a similarly fertile soil and mild climate.
To the rear of the property is a parking area with access to a large double garage and a small walled garden laid to lawn with a greenhouse, currently used as a summerhouse. To the front is a private patio area which provides a great entertaining space for family and friends. The main garden area is to the south west of the property and is laid to lawn with an ancient Devon bank forming the southern boundary. A post and rail fence separates the garden from the circa 2 acre paddock which is gently sloping with a small field shelter at the far end. The whole property is surrounded by mature trees.

"The solar panels are owned with the maximum feed-in tariff rate - they easily pay for all our gas, water and electricity. When our children were young we had ponies in the field. In recent years we have combined with our neighbours to have a local farmer cut it for hay."
