  • Detached Barn with Central Courtyard
  • Detailed Planning Consent for Conversion
  • Lovely Setting with Excellent Country Views

WITH DETAILED PLANNING CONSENT TO CREATE A UNIQUE RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY.
A DETACHED BARN FOR CONVERSION IN A SECLUDED COUNTRY SETTING WITH SUPER VIEWS OF THE AXE VALLEY.

The property comprises a substantial period barn arranged around a courtyard. Although of some considerable age this stone and tiled building is in surprisingly good order which ensures much of the original character can be retained.

As the floor plan shows the design protects the aesthetics of the stone barn externally as the accommodation focuses in the sunny central courtyard.

The property enjoys a secluded setting, away from the main farmyard (where all the buildings have now been sympathetically converted to character cottages) with super country views including the stunning River Axe Estuary.

Colyford is a picturesque East Devon Village in the Axe Valley with sea and 'Jurassic Coast' about 1.5 miles the south and inland approximately 1 mile is the country town of Colyton. There is a main line railway station (Exeter to London Waterloo line) at Axminster about 5 miles away.

Colyford is a much sought after village with a thriving local community and facilities including two pubs, a post office and general store, butchers, village hall, parish church, the highly regarded Colyton Grammar School, and a station for the Seaton to Colyton Tramway. In the Axe Estuary is an extensive Wetlands Nature Reserve with lovely walks and bird watching hides.

PLANNING
Detailed Planning Consent for the conversion was granted on the 22nd June 2020 (Application No. 20/0934/FUL) and the associated documents and plans can be seen on the East Devon District Council planning portal.

SERVICES
We understand that mains water, electricity and gas are available in the road (A3052) but applicants should confirm this with their own enquiries. The Purchaser will be required to install a treatment plant/septic tank for foul drainage.
