Plenty of charm and character
STANDING just outside the edge of South Brent is this converted barn.
It combines the charm and character of an older property with the practical convenience of something much newer.
In all the main rooms downstairs are most attractive limestone-tiled floors; the living room has a corner-sited log-burning stove with a natural stone chimney breast and beamed ceiling and there is an archway to a spacious inner hall/dining room.
The kitchen features a striking red oil-fired Rayburn which supplies heat for the radiators and hot water as well as doing the cooking.
A Belfast sink is set into a polished granite work surface, there are rustic-style wooden cupboards and an open plate rack.
A utility room with integral cloakroom leads from the kitchen to the garden.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms – two of which have vaulted ceilings and exposed roof trusses – plus a fitted bathroom with polished tiled floor and glazed brick-effect tiling to one wall.
Outside a five-bar gate gives access to the enclosed garden where there is paved parking for several cars, a storage shed, lawn, greenhouse, flower beds and a poultry pen.
South Brent is a busy little moorland village with good facilities and a terrific community spirit.
Its position alongside the A38 means that it is very well placed for access to Devon's three main commercial centres of Plymouth, Exeter and Torbay as well as to places further afield.
Little Stidston is on the market at a price of £365,000 through Luscombe Maye (01364 646170).
