Lark Barn brought us a whole new world of easy access to the South West coasts of East Devon, North Somerset and Cornwall, the lovely cities of Exeter and Bristol and even a fast train to London.
The Barn is a cleverly designed space which met all of our needs and delighted our family and guests with its unique, tasteful features.
We expected a quiet, remote, rural life in Otterford and we found it, alongside the unexpected bonus of close connections to Taunton, Honiton and Chard and delightful Churchinford; which has a great community shop and a prizewinning community pub.
Our orchard is a world of its own, overlooking the Otter river valley with roaming deer, circling raptors and beautiful western sunsets.
The orchard gives sunshine from dawn to dusk and offers many hours of peaceful retreat.
Lark Barn is going to be a hard act to follow.
The property's charm lies in its meticulous conversion, where each detail has been carefully considered to create an individualised living experience. No expense has been spared with underfloor heating on the ground floor providing an ambient warmth throughout and bespoke wooden shutters have been installed to the windows adding additional character. An open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room has been created with a central wood burner creating a focal point for this beautiful room. Four large feature windows overlook a courtyard setting. A stylish range of kitchen units with quartz worktop and range of fully integrated NEFF appliances insure that all conveniences are catered for.
Two out of the three spacious double bedrooms are conveniently situated on the ground floor, each exuding its own distinctive character and charm. Thoughtfully designed, these rooms boast generous proportions, ensuring ample space to accommodate king-size-plus beds. One of the bedrooms enjoys the luxury of an en-suite bathroom, while the adjacent room is conveniently located next to the shower/cloakroom, featuring a large double-sized walk-in shower enclosure with additional space for washing machine and tumble dryer.
Ascend the stairs to discover the third double bedroom, with attic-style ceilings and its own en-suite bathroom. The galleried landing adds an elegant touch, providing access to this private retreat.
At the other end of the landing is a captivating semi-enclosed living space that appears to gracefully hover over the open-plan living room on the ground floor. This stylish haven offers an ideal sanctuary to immerse yourself in a good book or a cinematic experience. Peaks over the half-height walls afford delightful views down onto the sitting area of the ground floor, with the central wood burner adding to the cosy ambiance.
In front of the barn, there are flower borders and a space for a chair, providing a perfect spot to relish the view of St. Leonard's church tower.
