This original Devon open-sided barn has been beautifully renovated to offer a stunning detached home with versatile accommodation, in the privacy of its own landscaped grounds. This truly spectacular property has a delightful contemporary feel, retaining many original features and we believe it will appeal to a broad range of buyers, especially those who require open plan living space, privacy and an OUTBUILDING that can offer a multitude of different uses.
The Linhay is accessed through a five bar gate from the lane leading to a large crushed stone driveway and large parking area. A further five bar gate leads into a private GARDEN and PATIO laid with large slate tiles which wrap around the property providing a private and secluded outside space, which is both child and dog secure and ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. The outside lawns are beautifully landscaped using all the excavated stone resulting from the conversion to create impressive sculptural elevations that allow you to wend your way through the GARDENS and enjoy the views over the surrounding countryside. A side gate also provides easy access to the lane.
The impressive and significant parking area provides space for numerous vehicles and is bordered by an equally impressive bank which is shored up by large stone boulders, making quite a feature. The parking area lies in front of the substantial GARAGE / WORKSHOP BLOCK allowing free movement of vehicles as required.
