Beautiful Manor house and detached barn conversion set within grounds of approximately 20 acres. 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 it's 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."
Beautifully presented and kept up to date by the current owners, Blagdon Manor offers a new owner the opportunity to continue it's current use as a boutique country hotel with separate owners accommodation in the detached barn. Alternately, with a light conversion (replacing the commercial kitchen for a residential one), the Manor could easily return to a very fine main residence with guest or extended family accommodation in the converted barn. Planning permission was granted in November 2015 (1/0525/2015/FUL) for conversion to a residential dwelling.
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, used as the hotel reception room. The dining room has hardwood floors and it's own large fireplace. This dining area has recently been extended by 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 could easily be removed for a new owner. 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.
Created 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.
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. To the western side of the garden is an ornamental pond, while the barn has it's own private garden area.
There is a triple garage block and there is also workshop, machinery and wood stores.
The land which surrounds the property, and the Moors beyond make excellent riding. There would be sufficient space for stables on the site which could make Blagdon Manor a superb equestrian property
The barn is rated E for council tax purposes and is in band F for EPC. The main house is currently run as a business and so has business rates rather than council tax. Being Grade II listed, the manor is exempt from EPC requirements.
FIXTURES AND FITTINGS
In the Barn, the fridge, freezer, oven, range and hob will remain. The kitchen equipment and soft furnishings of the Manor are available by separate negotiation.
