West Barn is a handsome granite structure with some feature exterior timber cladding, full double glazing and mains gas central heating throughout. It has great character with some exposed internal structural features, such as granite walls and roof trusses and the accommodation is well presented. On the ground floor there is underfloor heating, an entrance hall, three bedrooms, a bathroom and utility room. At first floor level there is an airy living room open to the eaves with exposed feature timbers, a hand built Maple kitchen and a double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. The living room has direct access to the exterior and dotted around the exterior of the house there are four patio terraces with views to the garden and countryside. Located in the garden is a big natural rock formation and there is a level upper lawn and some woodland and plenty of parking. Fowlers strongly recommend viewing this fine home to properly appreciate it.



West Barn is located in the small Dartmoor settlement of Furlong which sits mid-way along a private lane enabling access to both the A382 at one end, and the village of Sandy Park at the other where there is a pub. The lane is used only by Furlong residents and working farmers. The ancient Stannary town of Chagford is approximately 1.5 miles away where there is a wide range of day to day and specialist shops, pubs, cafes, a Primary school, pre-school and Montessori school, surgeries for doctor, dentist and vet and a Parish Church, Chapel and a Roman Catholic church. The whole area is criss-crossed with footpaths and there is easy access to riverside, countryside and the nearby open moor. Exeter is approximately 19 miles and the A30 dual carriageway is about 3.5 miles.

From Fowlers offices go to the top of The Square and turn right and then right immediately down the other side of The Square. Follow this road for about half a mile and take the left turn after the Primary school which leads into the Teign Valley and passes the open air swimming pool. Continue along this country lane and almost at the end, on the left, you will come to a private lane flanked by two granite posts right next to the Sandy Park pub. Turn through the posts and continue along the private lane to Furlong, bearing right by the big Georgian House that names the settlement. This will bring you to a courtyard and on the far side is a broad gravelled parking area for West Barn.
