Completed just under 4 years ago, the Field Barn is a granite built property with a stylish conversion to a spacious home which is highly insulated and which has under floor heating and full double glazing. The large ground floor accommodation comprises a big sitting room with a large granite fireplace and wood burner and a big kitchen/dining room with an extensive range of fitted units and a large island and breakfast bar. Upstairs is a bright landing and a main bedroom with a moorland view and an ensuite bathroom, as well as a second large double bedroom and a shower room. The gardens are charming and well planned with two patios, lawns, a small vegetable garden, a pump house/utility room and parking for 4/5 cars. If you are looking for an investment this would make an excellent high end holiday let. This is a superb conversion and we very strongly recommend viewing to fully appreciate this fine home.
The Field Barn is located only about a quarter of a mile outside of Moretonhamsptead and is set back from the road and screened by deciduous trees for privacy. The bustling town is just a 10 minute walk or two minute drive and there is a wide range of day to day and specialist shops, cafes, restaurant and pubs. The town has a busy social round and good access to the arts including the Green Hill Arts centre and various choirs and performing arts groups. Moretonhampstead has a doctor's, dentist's and vets, a sports centre with a gym, a football pitch, tennis court, bowling club, skate park and an open air swimming pool in the summertime. The town is surrounded by countryside walks. The A30 and A38 are equidistant at about 8 miles and Exeter is approximately 12 miles along the B3212.
A gated access from the lane leads into the property where there is a gravelled drive, parking and a pathway to the broad double glazed oak front door with matching side panels.
The front door leads into a central reception area which has a stone floor with underfloor heating and space for a desk, a partial screen between the reception area and sitting room and an oak staircase leading up to the double glazed oak doors to the garden and patio at the rear. The ground floor is virtually open plan so the reception area opens out into the kitchen/dining room.
This is a spacious and very well presented kitchen/dining room with an extensive range of base and wall units and a large island/breakfast bar. There is room for a good size dining table too. The kitchen has four pendant light points and five LED down lighters. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of base and wall units with light wood effect work surfaces incorporating a one and a half bowl stainless steel inset sink with a matching mixer tap. A glass four ring induction hob is fitted with an extractor hood and lighting above, a pair of built in stacked electric fan ovens/grill, a built in full height larder fridge, a built in dishwasher and recycling drawer and plenty of cupboards. The island is large with a breakfast bar and power points, a built in wine fridge and a retractable power point tower. The tops of the units have halo lighting and fitted at ground level and concealed in the kitchen units is a Worcester oil fired central heating boiler. The floor is stone tiled and has underfloor heating and there is a recessed and lit display niche in the back wall.
This is a generous room with a large granite fireplace with back lighting and a big fitted wood burning stove on a paved hearth. Adjacent to the fireplace is a recessed area with an exposed granite wall and fitted lighting. Three small cupboards are built into the chimney breast and the room has a TV point and ample power points. There is underfloor heating, four wall mounted down lighters and one wall mounted picture light.
An oak staircase rises from the kitchen and reception area to a half landing with oak framed double glazed doors to the garden. The oak staircase then rises to the first floor landing.
The oak staircase has oak balusters and a matching balustrade at first floor level. A double glazed skylight is set into the roof and provides natural light to the stairwell. A thermostat is wall mounted for the underfloor heating and oak latched doors lead to all rooms.

It has a Velux double glazed skylight, a painted timber panelled ceiling, exposed steel roof trusses, two pendant light points and an individual room thermostat for the underfloor heating.

A block built structure which has been clad in timber. It has a concrete base and electricity and water supplied. There is space for a washing machine and dryer, the water filtration plant which incorporates an acidity balancing cylinder, a cotton filter and a UV lamp to purify the borehole water. Controls for the Klargester waste processor are also sited in this building. There is plenty of space for gardening equipment too.
The size of this plot is about a fifth of an acre with the Field Barn sitting just off centre. The entrance leads to the gravelled parking and turning space and 4/5 cars could park without difficulty. A deciduous copse sits between the Field Barn and the lane for privacy and set in to the trees is a summerhouse (6' x 6'/1.82x1.82) with glazed double doors. In front of the summerhouse is a lawned area with shaped beds and large natural granite boulders and a gently sloping lawn up to a sitting area in the far corner adjacent to the fields. A paved patio sits against the western wall of the Field Barn beneath a pergola for shelter and there is a great view over the neighbouring fields to the moor. To the rear of the Field Barn is a part gavelled path to a paved patio which is bounded on three sides by granite retaining walls with well stocked borders and flowering perennial shrubs above. There is a small vegetable garden and a gate back to the entrance. The garden is very well stocked with masses of flowering plants for shape and colour.
Mains electricity. There is a double bunded oil tank, a borehole for private water and a Klargester waste processing plant for sewage.
From the centre of Moretonhamsptead drive west along the B3212 and about a quarter of a mile after leaving the town look out for a gated access on the right off a left hand bend.
