Property Overview

A deceptively spacious, end of terrace barn conversion project, with currently one double bedroom, but with potential for three/four, a part-converted loft, a sunroom and an enclosed garden, in a quiet position in the seaside town of Teignmouth, with easy access to the nature reserve, town, beaches and amenities.

A barn conversion with plenty of character and in need of modernisation or a full re-design subject to the necessary surveys and investigations; a blank canvas with which to create a fabulous three/four-bedroom property.

A timber gate and a concrete path leads into the enclosed garden and a tarmac and concrete path leads to the entrance at the side of the property.

The entrance hallway is spacious with a pine staircase rising to the upstairs, this space would make an excellent study area, perfect for those working from home.

The kitchen has a vinyl floor and is a decent size with plenty of worktop space, tiled splashbacks, fitted units and wall cabinets with a gap for a cooker and space beneath the worktops for several appliances, including plumbing for a washing machine. There is a stainless-steel sink unit beneath the window and a condensing combi-boiler provides the heating and hot water on demand. The living/dining room is spacious with plenty of light from dual-aspect windows and a chunky oak beam with horizontal timbers built into the walls makes a lovely feature for the room. There is a gas fire mounted on the wall and four steps lead up and through a door into the sunroom/garden room which has sliding doors to the garden, a versatile room ideal for enjoying the tranquil surroundings. Off the hallway there is a bathroom, containing a bath, WC and a basin. A light, airy and spacious double-bedroom, completes the ground floor accommodation.

Upstairs, there is a spacious converted loft room which would make a fantastic double bedroom and has a vaulted ceiling and exposed A-frames and French doors, which open out over the roadside. A door leads into another smaller loft room with a walk-in cupboard on one side, again, a blank canvas with a vaulted ceiling and a Velux window providing natural light. A further door provides access into an unconverted area of loft.

Outside, there is a long and narrow tarmac area making a nice private space for relaxing with a glass of wine perhaps and at the other end of the property, the sunroom opens out onto a level patio, a great, private space for alfresco dining or a family barbecue perhaps surrounded by walled-beds of plants and shrubs. There is a well-maintained level lawn, bordered by beds of plants, shrubs and mature bushes adding to the privacy. Another paved patio area has a trellis fence overlooking the neighbouring brook and there is a storage shed in one corner, providing storage for the mower and patio furniture.

While there is no parking with this property, it would be possible for part of the garden wall to be removed, to create an area of off-road parking, if required. The lane on which the property is situated, leads onto footpaths to the neighbouring nature reserve, which is ideal for walking and exercising dogs.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
