A delightful detached barn conversion, with three double-bedrooms, a garage, ample parking, an annex and private garden with a heated swimming pool, in the heart of the village of Denbury amid the rolling Devon countryside.

Starting life as a stone barn, it was sympathetically converted and extended in 1995, to create a fabulous family home providing spacious and versatile accommodation, a wonderful blend of olde worlde character and charm, with modern warmth and convenience.

Beautifully presented throughout, it has light and neutral d├ęcor and offers accommodation arranged over two floors. It feels warm and cosy, despite its generous proportions and benefits from gas central heating and recent double-glazing.

A solid-oak front door with glazed panels leads into a spacious entrance hallway, with a staircase rising to the first floor. To the side, a spacious study has an oak floor, exposed beams and plenty of light from two windows to the front and is ideal for those working from home.

The living room is a beautiful room, spacious and light with dual-aspect windows providing wonderful views over the garden. Large exposed oak beams span the room and a wonderful stone fireplace with slate hearth, is fitted with a multi-fuel stove, making a lovely feature and focal point and is wonderful with a roaring fire on a winter night. There is a convenient ground-floor cloakroom containing a vanity unit with an inset basin and a WC. A large cupboard contains a regular gas boiler for the heating and hot water and has plenty of space for hanging winter coats.

The kitchen has beautiful, solid-granite worktops and a bespoke fitted kitchen with solid-oak drawer and base units providing plentiful cupboard space. There is an inset, one and a half-bowl sink with a drainer carved into the granite worktop, a built-in combination oven and a gas-fired Aga, which can also provide the hot water, together with a two-ring halogen hob, all sat within a brick fireplace, complete with decorative, tiled splashback and feature lighting. There is floor space for a large American-style fridge/freezer and the room flows into a dining room, filled with light from a glazed roof and French doors to the patio. There is plenty of space for eight or ten around a dining table; a perfect venue for a dinner party or a family celebration. A utility room has a tiled floor and a vaulted ceiling, a granite and a marble worktop, fitted units in gloss-grey, a Belfast sink and plumbing for a washing machine, and a stable door to the garden. A pine door leads into boot room, with more of the beautiful tiled flooring and plentiful storage in bespoke shelving and cupboards, all in solid oak.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is a spacious double, filled with light from dual-aspect windows with fabulous views over the garden and Denbury Down behind. There are built-in wardrobes providing plentiful clothes storage and an en suite shower room has a large modern shower enclosure, a hidden-cistern WC, a wide basin and a contemporary circular glass basin with an illuminated mirror above. There are two further bedrooms, both doubles with built-in wardrobes, exposed beams and vaulted ceilings. A shower room has tile-effect laminate flooring and contains a shower, a vanity unit with an inset basin and storage beneath and an illuminated mirror above. A separate bathroom is modern and elegant with a contemporary suite comprising a bath, a vanity unit with granite worktop and a circular basin, a hidden-cistern WC and a chrome heated towel rail. The galleried landing offers a beautiful oak balustrade and banister, a built-in wardrobe, a stained-glass window to side making a nice feature and an airing cupboard containing an insulated hot water cylinder and storage for linen.

Outside, a gated entrance leads into a low-maintenance front garden with an interesting monolith sculpture making a nice feature. A wide block-paved driveway provides ample parking for at least six cars, in front of the detached outbuilding, comprising a garage with barn doors and two large store rooms.

A gap in a stone wall leads through to the fabulous rear garden, private and secluded, it is surrounded by walls and a high hedgerow. There is a flagstone-paved courtyard with a chunky solid-granite seat making a nice feature and is perfect for outside dining or a family barbecue. An area of timber decking leads onto a manicured, level lawn and a paved path leads through an expanse of decorative shingle, under an arbour entwined in a tree, to a wonderful heated swimming pool, surrounded by a paved terrace, perfect for sun lovers and a large solid-granite table makes an interesting feature.

There is a greenhouse for the tomato plants, a colourful beech hedge adds to the privacy and there are rock-walled beds of plants, shrubs and flowers.

Timber steps lead up into the loft room studio above the outbuilding, which is spacious and has plenty of light from two Velux windows in its vaulted ceiling. There is beech effect laminate flooring throughout, electric storage heating and pine A-frames spanning the room. A cupboard provides handy storage and a shower room at the end has an electric shower, a WC and a pedestal basin, with a heated towel rail and benefits from natural light from a Velux window; a versatile space ideal for a family member requiring an element of independence.
