Whidbourne Court is a truly unique and perfectly stylish 3 bedroom Grade II listed barn conversion nestled in a very small cluster of period homes in the quiet east side of Bishopsteignton. Converted over 25 years ago, the property received a full thatch roof replacement in 2019 and is presented in ‘show home’ condition inside and out. The property is full to the brim of original character, including high vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, stunning stone fireplace and deep window sills and with just under 2500 sq ft of accommodation, provides plenty of space to entertain guests. What makes this such a special spot in the village is that the property overlooks the vines of the neighbouring Old Walls Vineyard, which also offers a fantastic dining experience, day and evening for locals to enjoy.
From the moment you walk in through the beautiful timber entrance door, you are hit with the wow factor! Before your eyes you are greeted with a thirty-foot open plan kitchen/dining/family room, which is beautifully designed, and shows off the exposed wooden ceiling beams and real wood flooring throughout. Even though it is one very large room, the layout has you feel as though the individual areas are zoned. The large granite topped island is the centre piece of the kitchen with the remaining units with wood worktops designed around. Plenty of cupboards and worktop space are on offer along with a twin Belfast sink and Integrated dishwasher. Also included in the sale is a freestanding seven ring gas cooker with three ovens and grill and a freestanding American style fridge/freezer. The dining area is also spacious and holds a very large dining table and chairs and the family area is perfect for a decent sized sofa.
Double doors lead you through into a welcoming reception hallway This area would work perfectly as a library or snug. A large feature character timber wooden door lead you into the stunning sitting room with an impressive and extensive stone fireplace with bread oven feature and an eye-catching vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. At the far end of this room, is a door leading into a home-office with a very handy mezzanine area above, providing the perfect spot for some quiet reading. The remainder of the ground floor hosts a good-sized utility/drying room and ground floor shower room.
On the first floor, the lovely character feeling continues with plenty of exposed timbers and vaulted ceilings, with three bedrooms and a bathroom leading off from the landing. The main bedroom is an exceptional suite with a floor to ceiling glazed window providing views over the neighbouring vines and an en suite shower room and walk-in dressing room. The two remaining bedrooms continue with the character with the exposed ceiling beams and pretty outlooks from the windows. The main bathroom has a real country-cottage feel with exposed ceiling beams, freestanding roll topped bath and corner shower.
Externally Whidborne courts has an adjoining Mediterranean styled courtyard. Finished with high-end tiles, an array of attractive, colourful pots and fully fenced to make it child and pet proof. A real sun trap and perfect to entertain guests with a spot of al fresco dining or sit and relax with a book.
Steps adjacent to the garage lead to the secret garden. You will be greeted with an extensive lawn area surrounded by trees and attractive hedging which allows this area to be totally private and secluded. There are several seating areas for you to sit and soak up the views over the estuary and surrounding rolling countryside. There is plenty of space for trampolines or vegetable patches.
The property has a larger than average garage with additional storage at the rear. The driveway allows for parking of several cars.
