Description

Summercombe is a Grade two listed traditional stone and slate bank barn which for several hundred years has served this Devon farm. It stands nestled into the hillside, yet perched above the sea on open farmland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty some two miles inland from Watermouth Castle and not far from Berrynarbor and Ilfracombe.

The picturesque and prize winning village of Berrynarbor has a choice of character inns serving local produce and real ales. Ilfracombe with its pretty fishing harbour surrounded by towering cliffs, provides beautiful coastal scenery for walkers and cyclists as well as boasting a great selection of attractions, including the Victorian Tunnels Beaches, Damien Hirst’s Verity and various eateries including a Michelin star restaurant. The award winning family beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde are a short drive away as are the wilds of Exmoor.

This stunning barn conversion has been recently architecturally designed to create a fabulous living space whilst retaining its traditional features and atmosphere and is also home to a small collection of work by local artists. A double height entrance hall provides a great welcome and an area to place those muddy boots after an exhilarating coastal walk. There is practical slate flooring throughout the downstairs but with the added bonus of underfloor heating. The two bedrooms on the ground level are spacious and both have built in wardrobes, ensuite facilities and windows with wooden shutters.  The master bedroom benefits from a super king bed and has three steps leading down to a superb ensuite with roll top bath with sky views, separate shower, vanity unit and WC.  Bedroom two has twin zip ‘n’ link beds (that can be converted to a super king bed on request) and an ensuite shower room. Off the hall a fitted cupboard provides a utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer.

From the spacious entrance hall an oak and metal open tread staircase leads up to a glazed mezzanine and into the contemporary open plan living space, this time with a warm oak flooring with underfloor heating. On one side you have the lounge area with roof lights flowing throughout and three comfortable sofas placed for tranquil reading time next to the woodburner on cooler evenings.  On the other side, the kitchen area with a large wooded dining table and along one wall a modern range of units with all appliances built in, again flooded with light from the roof lights and looking out over the fields behind.

Outside a raised patio area with garden furniture and barbeque is located to one side of the property and on another side there is a small lawned area.  When bringing your pet please ensure it is kept on a lead outside due to livestock in surrounding farmland, however the owners have also provided an enclosed paddock ideal for exercising your pet.  You may also wish to stroll through a pretty meadow and pick up the bridle path that will take you on a coastal walk to the village of Hele with its tiny cove which is pet friendly all year round, pubs and spectacular coastal walks.
