Converted about 20 years ago, Lavender Farm is an impressive 3 double bedroom (2 en-suite) detached barn with an integral 1/2-bedroom holiday let or family annexe, known as The Loft.
The extremely spacious living/dining room, with a beautiful fireplace housing a wood burning stove, measures nearly 17m in length, with numerous windows allowing in an abundance of natural light, is a great entertaining space. This opens into the kitchen/family room which features a wide range of wall and base units, a central island and a relaxing family space in front of a character open fireplace. From here, a short walk, passing the plant room and through the laundry room, leads to one of the key features of the property, the pool.
The indoor swimming pool is a stunning space, with three bi-folding doors which open onto a block paved patio creating a sociable party area, ideal for al-fresco dining with views over the wildlife pond, gardens and the mature trees that surround the property.
Completing the ground floor is a sizable games room featuring a full-sized snooker table and a useful cloakroom w/c.
High vaulted ceilings are a real design feature of the first floor within this highly individual barn conversion - they create an amazing feeling of light and space throughout the bedrooms.
The master bedroom suite has a dressing area with built in furniture, a very large double bedroom and a quality en-suite, with oak double doors opening onto a balcony, a great spot for morning coffee or breakfast. There are 2 further spacious bedrooms, one with an en-suite, and both have oak double doors with Juliet balconies.
Off the landing, a door leads through to The Loft. This is an independent annexe/holiday let with its own entrance and private area of garden set to the back of the barn. The kitchen/living/dining room features a stylish range of modern units with wood work surfaces and built in appliances, the main bedroom is an excellent size and has stairs leading to a mezzanine level for overflow bedroom space, a reading room or study. The bathroom is also very well-presented.
Under the original planning Lavender Farm could have one letting unit plus the main residence but this could easily be returned to a large 5 bedroom home. The Loft has the potential to create a good holiday let income, although our clients currently use it as a separate family annexe.
The barn overlooks the beautiful wildlife pond and surrounding gardens and is ring fenced by its own land. The pond has a deck area, so you can read a book or drink a glass of wine and enjoy the view back towards the property, with gardens sweeping around to an expanse of lawn and an open paddock, ideal for garden sports. There is plenty of parking and turning in front of the open triple garaging and, from here, a lane with gated access leads to the land.
A gate opens into a sloping paddock which offers lovely countryside views from its elevated position. The stable block lies between the 2 paddocks and there is another sizable wildlife pond which forms part of the larger paddock, which has approximately 300m of frontage along the River Neet.
Lavender Farm has riparian rights to this stretch of river, which includes the right to fish, with many a trout to be caught. Our client’s children use to play ‘on the beach’ - a sandy section where there is easy access to wade and play in the river with, towards the eastern edge of the land, an ‘island’ you can cross over to, which their children use to enjoy especially in the summer months. An idyllic place to bring up your family!
This rural location, set at the end of a private lane with just three other neighbouring properties, lies about 3 miles from the sandy, surfing beach at Widemouth Bay and stunning cliff top walks along this stretch of coastline.
The picturesque village of Marhamchurch is 2 miles distant with a community run shop, a county primary school and a public house, with Bude, the popular coastal resort just 2 miles on. Bude has a wide range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities and lies alongside the main A39 Atlantic Highway creating good access to the south to Newquay and its airport and north, via the towns of Bideford and Barnstaple, to the north Devon link road leading to the M5, Bristol and beyond.
