Beautiful Manor house and detached barn conversion set within stunning grounds with panoramic views. Immaculately presented offering the potential of a fine new lifestyle in the South West.
IN THE OWNER'S WORDS
"We fell in love with the house before we even walked in the front door. It sits beautifully in its surrounding and it is such a peaceful location.
On entering the house it was if a giant pair of hands enveloped us and we were immediately relaxed. It is a very homely house."
Believed to date from 16-1700 and situated in a conservation area and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Manor and Barn are as attractive as their surroundings. Both buildings have been impeccably maintained and improved over recent years and offer fine living with large reception rooms and bedrooms, high quality en-suites and fixtures and fittings all within well presented grounds.
A long carriage drive leads to a turning circle to the front of the Manor and a large parking area to the rear.
The flagstone slate floored reception hall leads to an attractive sitting room with a feature fireplace with marble surround and an inset woodburning stove between arched alcoves. Next to this is a study. The dining room has hardwood floors and it's own large fireplace. This home has recently been extended with the addition of the attractive conservatory which wraps around the south east corner of the house and offers fine views over the grounds and doors leading out to the terrace.
The Manor currently has a large commercial kitchen, however as much of this is un-fitted this will be removed prior to a sale allowing a blank canvas for a new owner to fit a kitchen to suit. Alternately, the far reception rooms of the house would make a superb new kitchen/breakfast room (subject to obtaining the necessary permissions) Currently used as a bar, lounge and snug, each of the rooms have a fireplace - the bar and lounge being double sided which could offer an attractive central feature of a new kitchen. As with the rest of the Manor these rooms are very well maintained and are a comfortable and relaxing environment to socialise in.
Upstairs there are three en-suite bedrooms and three suites with bedroom, sitting room and bathroom. Each of the rooms is presented to a high quality and offer good sized double rooms with high quality en-suite bathrooms.
Converted by the current owners, the four bedroom, detached barn conversion sits behind the Manor creating independent accommodation of high quality. The fine custom made kitchen has a large breakfast island with hardwood cabinetry below a granite worktop with an inset electric hob. An Alpha Range Cooker sits within a red brick fireplace with oak mantle. There is an adjoining utility room with matching cabinetry.
The dining room connects the kitchen with the sitting room. The vaulted double height ceiling of the sitting room creates a sense of grandeur in the centre of the barn. Above the dining room and kitchen there are three bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room. On the far side of the barn there is a study with another bedroom above.
This is a very well converted barn which provides fine additional accommodation to the Manor.
The owners have recently opened the barn for holiday lets. They have been delighted with the response with current lettings exceeding their expectations.
GROUNDS AND GARDENS
The grounds around the estate are a mix of formal lawned gardens which overlook agricultural fields and the Moors of North West Devon and East Cornwall.
Along the southern wing of the Manor is a large terrace which is an ideal place for dining and entertaining. Lawned gardens surround the Manor and offer exquisite distant views. The barn has it's own private fenced garden area with a deck, hot tub and summer house.
There is a triple garage block and also a workshop, machinery and wood stores.
The barn is rated E for council tax purposes and is in band F for EPC. Being Grade II listed, the manor is exempt from EPC requirements. The manor has previously been used as a boutique hotel / B&B with the owners using the barn as their own accommodation. The current arrangement allows for potential letting income from the barn, or it could be used for a dependent relative or guests. For those buyers looking for a business opportunity the Manor and Barn offer plenty of potential subject to any change of use requirements.
