Luxury barn conversion | Underfloor heating throughout | Quiet but convenient rural location | 3 Bedrooms (master en-suite) | Full Fibre Connection | Garage and parking | Private garden and communal 3.5 acre field | EPC E53
Description This luxury barn conversion was completed in 2019 to an exceptionally high standard to create a contemporary home in a quiet semi-rural setting conveniently located for the South Hams coast and Plymouth. The property occupies a superior position at the rear of the development, offering a sunny aspect, rural views and peaceful location away from the main entrance.
From the front door, an entrance hall has doors to the WC/cloakroom which houses the lpg boiler. A door opens from the hall to a wonderful open plan kitchen/dining/living area spread across the ground floor which enjoys a sunny aspect and rural views. The contemporary kitchen complements the rural setting with a soft natural palette of colours. A Silestone worktop with breakfast bar provides an informal space to eat and socialise, whilst integrated appliances include a Neff induction hob, a Neff microwave and a Neff electric fan-assisted oven, larder-style fridge, larder-style freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Drawers are soft close with useful cupboard additions such as carousels and bin stores for convenience and practicality. The tiled floor in the kitchen gives way to solid oak flooring through the living space, with glazed door opening out to the private, low maintenance garden. An electric 'living flame' effect woodburner with remote control creates a focal point for a winter's evening.
An oak staircase with glass balustrade and oak hand rail leads to the first floor. The landing has doors to the three double bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower, hand basin set on a vanity unit, WC, heated vanity mirror and towel rail. Two of the bedrooms benefit from useful large eaves storage areas. The family bathroom boasts a bath with rain head shower over and hand-held attachment, basin with vanity unit and heated mirror, WC and towel rail.
The property boasts a garage, located en-bloc with power and light, and a parking space in front, with additional garaging available by separate negotiation.
Communal grounds A paddock of circa 3.5 acres provides a useful area for residents to exercise, enjoy a picnic, or walk a dog. A visitors' parking area provides additional parking for guests.
Situation Hareston Farm Barns were built for large-scale farm production by the Plymouth Cooperative Society in 1908 to provide and promote good food at fairer prices. The Society was experiencing rapid growth in the late 19th Century and in 1903 Plymouth Cooperative Society purchased Hareston Farm (149 acres) to help with ever-increasing demands. Characteristic local stone was used in the construction, with brick quoins and occasional granite dressings. The farm is no longer in use and the barns were converted to a high specification starting from 2019 into 14 luxury residential homes.
