In a sheltered valley, a short drive from the dramatic North Devon coastline and the North Devon administrative centre at Barnstaple.

A complete private courtyard of stone barns, within its own land and all around a central secluded courtyard garden area accessed through an arch with double timber doors the house forms 3 sides of the courtyard and the fourth side is taken up with an artist’s studio with full height glass wall offering soft north light and a further large barn adjoining that offers potential for conversion to additional accommodation possibly in the form of dependent relatives annex or holiday cottage.

The property was sensitively converted some 25 years ago by the current owner undertaken to both enhance and preserve the inherit character of the original structure, stone walling, oak beams, original board floors, latch doors, arrow slit style windows and many other attractive features.

The whole is set in about 2 acres of landscaped gardens and grounds with the house looking out over a millpond style water feature.

To the west of the property, Braunton, about 4 miles and reputed to be the largest village in the country, has an excellent range of facilities and just beyond, a further 3 to 5 miles is the dramatic North Devon coast at Saunton, Croyde and Putsborough which offer sandy beaches, swimming, surfing, fishing and dramatic clifftop walks.

From Barnstaple there is access onto the A361/North Devon Link road which provides much improved communications to and from the North Devon area connecting directly as it does to junction 27 on the M5 motorway where there is also the Parkway rail station from where journey times to London/Paddington are about 2 hours distant.
