This fabulous property really is a jewel within the beautiful Blackdown Hills. Completed circa 2014 and built to the exacting specification of the current owners, The Old Cow Byre is a truly superb home, that really oozes style and quality.
In more detail :
The bright and airy kitchen, which has a high, vaulted, ceiling was designed and built by local company System Six and incorporates high-specification integrated appliances, plus features such as a sculpted granite work surfaces and striking frameless bi-fold doors that lead out onto a superb decked terrace overlooking the gardens. The large sitting room, again has a vaulted ceiling, which gives a wonderful feeling of space and light. There are also sliding doors that lead out to another balcony. On the lower level is a good-sized master bedroom, a beautifully fitted shower room and a study with patio doors into the garden (this could easily be partitioned off to provide a separate single bedroom).
The building itself, despite being based upon a traditional stone-built byre, benefits from many modern construction methods, which when combined with central heating (combination of radiator and under floor) and solar PV cells, make it particularly economical to and efficient to run (the current EPC rating is B and there is potential to increase this to an A). We are also informed that the solar cells produce a return of around £900.00 annually and that there is no charge for the private drainage, both of which keep running costs to a minimum.
The gardens at the property are as beautifully landscaped and kept as the house itself. They comprise of a sloping Devon bank that leads up to a generous, level area, where there is a lawn, summer house and raised vegetable bed. There are super views over the surrounding farmland from the gardens, which are a fabulous place to relax or entertain in. The property is accessed from the lane by a shared driveway (which is in ownership).
The house currently has an integral open garage, which adjoins the kitchen; however, the owners have had plans drawn up to change this area into another en suite bedroom and to move the parking into part of the garden. Whilst planning has yet to have been applied for, the drawings will be made available to the buyer.
The property is most easily accessed from the A373 (junc 28 of the M5 or the Honiton Junction of the A30). From Cullompton, take the road towards Hontion for approximately 3 miles, turning left just after the 'Keeper's Cottage pub towards Sheldon and the Gliding Club. Follow this road for around a mile, heading up the hill and past Forest Glade camp site. Turn right at the 'T' junction, the left soon after (signposted Sheldon). Follow this road for around a mile until and The Old Cow Byre will be found on the right (close to a sign for the local fishery).
