Situation

Woodbury Parish, which includes the villages of Woodbury, Woodbury Salterton and Exton, is one of the largest parishes in Devon. It encompasses much of Woodbury Common, an outstanding area of natural beauty and enjoys a thriving community spirit rooted in the church and chapel, in the school and in agriculture. In days past, the parish was frequented by Sir Francis Drake and there is a chapel dedicated to his memory at St Swithin's in the village centre. Some of the facilities of the village include two excellent public houses, a village store and post office, restaurants, doctor's surgery, nearby golf club and leisure facilities at Woodbury Park and a bus service operating between Exmouth and Exeter, being only two minutes away.

Description

A delightful, five bedroom period house situated in the heart of Woodbury with a garage and garden. Believed to have originally been two cottages and a barn and converted into one property many years ago, there is an 8m sitting / dining room and if required, the potential to create an annex for a relative or additional income (subject to the usual consents). Although hundreds of years old, the house is not listed and retains a number of period features including two impressive fireplaces in the sitting room and exposed beams. These blend with more modern conveniences including double glazing, gas central heating, an up to date kitchen and two modern bathrooms. There is an attached garage, large utility room and a garden with southerly aspect. Located along a quiet no through lane, Barn Cottage would suit a large variety of buyers, particularly those looking for a home with character.
