The Threshing Barn is a beautifully presented three bedroom home, part of a development of seven renovated brick barns that originally date back to 1860’s. The house, which is surrounded by 2 acres of well presented garden and paddocks has been developed to a high standard by the current owners.
The Threshing Barn is part of a group of 7 luxury barn conversions, centred around a beautiful, gravelled courtyard with access to residents parking area. The barns are approximately 1/3 mile outside the village and occupy an exceptionally quiet spot surrounded by beautiful countryside with views along the Exe valley. It is an idyllic rural location within easy reach of Exeter. The barns were sympathetically converted in 2017 and benefit from many modern facilities including super-fast broadband, access to Sky Q television and electric vehicle charging point. The barns and the surrounding grounds are maintained to a high standard by an established management company.
Originally built in c1860 in brick, all the properties have a unique design and layout, benefitting from bespoke double glazed windows with granite sills (many formed from the original granary hatches) and slate roofs. The Threshing Barn is the largest of the properties and occupies a secluded spot. It has four designated spaces in the residents parking area, with additional parking available in an area, privately owned by The Threshing Barn which is in-between the car park and the side-entrance to the garden and paddocks.
Attractive, painted oak double front door leads into a good sized tiled entrance hall. The ground floor area and stairs have been painted using Farrow & Ball, Wevet and benefits from underfloor heating. From here a door leads to a large utility area with cupboard space containing washing machine & tumble drier. There is also a double sized shower, guest toilet and other useful storage space and shelving.
From the hallway, double doors lead into a large lounge which has dual aspect bespoke windows with views onto the garden, beautiful oak wooden floor and underfloor heating.
Up a few stairs is a large and impressive kitchen/dining room which has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and the original horse-gear as a distinctive centre-piece. This is an octagonal space, with 3 very large, bespoke, double-glazed windows as well as French doors leading out to the patio. There is a large range of fitted units, granite worktops, integrated freezer, dishwasher, wine cooler and an Aga range cooker with induction hob and extractor fan. The kitchen is very tastefully decorated using Fired Earth paint and tiles and benefits from areas of exposed brick work, stone flooring and under-floor heating. There is a combination of spot lighting and contemporary light fittings. This is the heart of the home and a great entertaining area.

Outside The French doors in the kitchen lead out to a large and striking wrap-around patio area, which ensures both sun & shade all day long. There is ample space on the patio to construct a home office without impacting on the seating/dining areas. There is a range of established plants and shrubs as well as lighting which provides a unique backdrop to the garden at night. The patio area includes a beautiful and large bank which has been planted using wild flowers which are indigenous to the area, it also has both hot & cold outside taps (the dogs will thank you), an attractive pergola and a large shed with full electrics. Steps lead up to a second tier of garden area which has been landscaped with great sensitivity to maintaining a natural appearance and also includes an established apiary. Here there are uninterrupted and fantastic views across the Devon landscape for miles. Above the second tier are two further fenced paddocks with access to water, making it suitable for livestock. One of the paddocks is currently home to Mick & Ziggy, two pygmy goats.
The outside areas can be accessed from the house, from the car park using private access and via a private lane with vehicle access to the rear.
