Orchard Barn is a beautifully detached converted barn with two good sized double bedrooms all on one level and it also has a two storey one bedroom annexe with kitchen and shower room.
Approached via a quiet shared access road the barn is nestled into the landscape and screened by trees and hedges from neighbouring properties, with a five bar gate at the entrance to the driveway which has parking space for several cars. The accommodation comprises the following:
The front door leads into the entrance porch fitted with coir matting, with shelving and hanging space for coats and shoes or boots. There is additional storage in a double cupboard with painted wooden doors to the left of the porch. A bi folding door leads into the lovely large lounge. With exposed roof trusses and a recessed fireplace with woodburner, slate hearth and oak mantel shelf. The room is light and bright courtesy of a large hard wood double glazed window, which has been upgraded to include Argon gas for added thermal efficiency and the room has wonderful reclaimed parquet flooring.
Half glazed painted wooden doors lead through to the carpeted garden room, with exposed stone and red brick, which has a fully insulated roof, a large opening roof lantern, French doors to the garden and a glazed wall of windows in hard wood double glazing, again, recently upgraded with Argon gas for added thermal efficiency. The garden room is perfect for formal dining, or a second reception room, with the ability to bring the outside inside, a space to enjoy sitting and watching the abundant flora and fauna of the front garden. From the lounge an archway leads through to the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen has been recently refitted throughout, it has electric underfloor heating fitted, with wall and floor cabinets in a duck egg blue wood panelled effect, with hammered steel effect knobs, black galaxy granite worktops and burnished bronze brick tiling, a white porcelain one and half bowl sink and drainer with mixer tap over, with an integrated water filter system installed and Victorian style ceramic floor tiling. The integral appliances include a fridge and freezer, dishwasher and eye level oven and grill. Built in cupboards house the Worcester boiler and hot water tank with additional storage completing this stylish kitchen.
The family bathroom consists of a white suite with bath with shower over, WC, hand basin and heated towel rail.
From the lounge four steps lead you to the the two bedrooms. Both bedrooms are good sized double rooms and both look out to the front garden. The master bedroom is en suite with a newly fitted shower room with a white suite and wood effect vanity unit and tiling. Access to the fully boarded loft space with power and light can be gained from the master bedroom via a extendable loft ladder.
The barn has gas central heating with radiators fitted throughout as well as a solar panel system of 4kw which gains modest feed in tariff payments, quarterly.
The annexe is a semi detached barn conversion, comprising a fully fitted kitchen and shower room on the ground floor with electric underfloor heating with stairs leading up to the open plan lounge/bedroom. Upstairs features the beautiful exposed roof trusses of the original barn and natural stone walls, with wooden floorboards. To the front of the annexe is a decking area for al fresco dining or to enjoy the garden, there is a covered wood store area and raised wooden planting troughs.
To the rear of the annexe is a large utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and dryer with plenty of storage for tools and gardening equipment. The utility room also houses the apparatus for the solar panels and Tesla battery storage unit. On the outside there is an electric car charging point.
A pathway between the barn and annexe leads through to the rear patio Moroccan style garden. The large front garden has been lovingly tended and hosts a variety of unusual trees and shrubs which attract many species of wild birds, there is a wildlife pond with newts, frogs and dragon fly larvae. TOTNES
The unique and charming market town of Totnes sits above the River Dart in the heart of the South Hams. The town is one of Devon's gems, the birthplace of the Transition Town movement in England and nominated in British Airways' HighLife magazine as one of the world's top ten funky towns. Full of colour and character, its atmosphere is cosmopolitan with a West Country flavour and those looking for history, alternative therapies and beautiful countryside will find it in and around Totnes. The town is said to have more listed buildings per head of the population than anywhere else in Britain. With a twice-a-week market and full of small independent shops, it's well-known for ethical products, wholefoods and fair trade goods. It is the second oldest borough in England, with an ancient Guildhall and Church, a Norman Castle and its North and East Gates. There is a well-regarded community college and a mainline railway station and Dartmoor, the South Hams and many of its fine beaches are within easy reach. TENURE
