This impressive family home is located in a peaceful and picturesque setting at the end of a no-through road, on the periphery of the Bere peninsula, close to the river Tamar. Located less than two miles to the southeast, Bere Alston, a perennially popular village located in the picturesque countryside of rural West Devon, is well-served by local amenities and facilities, including a Co-op mini-market, butchers and Post Office, and also benefits from a direct 25-minute rail service to Plymouth City Centre. Bere Alston forms the hub of the area known as the Bere peninsula, created by the confluence of the rivers Tamar and Tavy, which itself falls within the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The verdant wooded banks of the Tamar Valley, along the Devon/Cornwall border, offer superb opportunities to discover the region's rich heritage. The thriving market town of Tavistock, forming part of a designated World Heritage Site, is 8 miles away, offering a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after private school, Mount Kelly.DESCRIPTION
This characterful, 4-bedroom barn conversion combines contemporary style with numerous traditional and original features to create a wonderfully warm and comfortable home. The living accommodation is bright and spacious, and provides excellent flexibility for active family life whilst also offering scope for two-family living with some adaptation. The house is set in a beautiful, large plot amounting to approximately 0.75 acres in all, including a garage and a large detached workshop (with potential for alternative uses, STP), plus mature, landscaped gardens and an allotment area. Additionally, some fine views towards the river Tamar and the iconic Calstock viaduct make this is an extremely appealing and well-rounded country home.ACCOMMODATION
The accommodation is accessed via a vestibule and porch into a modern inner hallway, where there are doors to the main reception room, utility, cloakroom and fourth bedroom (currently utilised as a study and could easily be adapted as ground floor accommodation to provide multi-generational living.) The large ground floor sitting room and dining room are full of traditional charm with exposed beams and slate floors, whilst managing to maintain a contemporary feel. Large patio doors from the sitting room, plus full-height windows in the dining area and a door out through the kitchen combine to provide a huge amount of light to these areas. Stairs lead up from the hallway initially to a first floor sitting room, and then on to the three main bedrooms and family bathroom. The upstairs sitting room is currently set up as a reading/music room and provides a sizable and adaptable reception room suitable for a variety of uses and interests. The master bedroom suite incorporates a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, along with a balcony which makes the most of the panoramic views to the river Tamar and surrounding countryside. The further two bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom.OUTSIDE
The property is approached through a gated drive which sweeps into a good sized parking area with a garage to one side. The front garden is a very pretty, gravelled area with hard landscaping, pond and attractive planting, which then leads through a pergola into the main lawn. The mature garden is beautifully kept, with large shrubs and trees along with a productive allotment-style area, perfect for the keen gardener. Close to the house is a patio area with seating, perfect for alfresco dining. With views towards the river Tamar and Calstock viaduct, the garden provides fantastic peace and tranquillity. In front of the house is a large L-shaped, stone building with power and lighting, currently utilised as a workshop and store but, subject to any relevant consents or approvals, has a variety of other potential uses, including an annexe or ancillary accommodation.SERVICES
