The Granary and 'Honeycomb Barn' are nestled in some of North Devon's most attractive and un-spoilt countryside, located 3 miles away from the traditional Devonshire village of Bradworthy and 4 miles from the village of popular village Woolsery (Woolfardisworthy) with an excellent range of amenities including primary school, local shop/Post Office, garage, church, sports and community hall, pub and restaurant and fish and chip shop. In 2015, the village became famous worldwide after a Californian based Internet entrepreneur with family links to the village purchased the derelict village pub and manor house, which they are currently in the process of renovating. Once complete will become a boutique hotel and gastro pub. Bradworthy has a fantastic variety of shops surrounding a large village square including Post Office, traditional ironmonger, butchers, general store and car garage. The property is also located close to Atlantic Academy school, award winning thatched public house & luxury hotel 'The Hoops Inn' and the rugged North Devon coastline at the historic village of Bucks Mills, where there is a pebbled beach and access to the South West Coast Path which offers superb walks with stunning vistas.
The port and market town of Bideford sits on the banks of the River Torridge and offers a wide range of amenities including various shops, banks, butchers, bakeries, pubs, restaurants, cafes, places of worship, schooling for all ages (public and private) and five supermarkets. There is also access to the Tarka Trail, which affords superb walks or cycle rides that extend beyond Torrington and Barnstaple. Barnstaple town is approximately 20 miles away and offers all the areas main businesses, shopping and commercial venues. There is also good transport opportunities via the A361 link road which connects the motorway network at Junction 27 at the M5 or via rail and the Tarka Line.DESCRIPTION
This a rare opportunity to acquire a duo of character detached properties set in a rural location with private enclosed land and gardens surrounded by rolling farmland and woodland. This is the first time The Granary has been on the market in this connotation as the current owners bought the dilapidated grain barn over 20 years ago as a much loved project from the neighbouring farm. In their tenure, they have transformed the barn into a delightful cosy home, landscaped the gardens and recently created 'Honeycomb Barn' from the cattle barn into ancillary accommodation for family members.
The property is located along a quiet lane away from main roads, with an initially shared driveway with few near neighbours. From the gated private entrance, the driveway passes the front of The Granary and 'Honeycomb Barn' to meet the entrance to the gardens, grounds and parking area.
The land in total amounts to approximately 2.8 acres including the lake and several outbuildings comprising summerhouse, workshops, studio/games room, garaging and dilapidated stables, once updated would be ideal for equestrian buyers. There are beautiful formal gardens and a stunning lake complete with a fishing lake house and central island accessed by a wooden bridge.
The Granary and 'Honeycomb Barn' would be ideal for buyers looking for a rural escape, either seeking a property with annexe potential to accommodate two families/dependent relative or land for horses or a smallholding.THE GRANARY
